1043:I greet you, friends Kytherians you live in Australia. Although I do not know English well, it presumes that there is an error in the article refers to the award by Dionysis Grammenos. He has written on the page that DionysisGrammenos is my son. It is wrong. We are not relatives. There synonymy. Because it is a coincidence and my son called Dionnysis like my father. It is to correct the article. Thank you. Good morning from Athens. Anngelos Grammenos
