You haven't been to Kythera, if you don't know KAPSALI
Any information will be appreciated
He was the people's transport on a rowing boat, from the Kapsali warf to the ship, (before the warf was built to what it is today). One son is in Australia.
Common name in Antikythera
Anyone that can give more information?

Does anyone recognise?
Today July 2nd 2007 I received information re-this grave from Alex Mills from London.
The text reads: The grave belongs to my dear uncle Panagioti Lagou who came from Kapsali (the rest of the family are buried there) but lived in Kalamos. He was a self taught engineer and I remember him always covered in oil mending someone or other\'s boat engine.He also did a lot of work for Myrtidiotissa Monastery.He was without doubt the funniest man I have ever met and that\'s how most people will remember him! ALEX MILLS LONDON
Alex, he repaired once my generator and knew him well. He was exactly as you describe him. The date of his death has also been changed according to your information and by looking closely,it shows 1998, but your comments verify the date of his death 28.8.98.Possibly the stone mason's error or my error. May he rest in peace.
