Klephtes, those legendary warriors, children of ancient Hellenes* were nothing else but ALBANIANS. I am not saying that but its KOUMAS who stresses out that:



"A Romaic grammar: accompanied by a chrestomathy, with a vocabulary"---Evangelinus Apostolides Sophocles

Now it become crystal clear why no one of them heard of Achilles:

Quote:

The eighteenth-century Greek scholar Koumas tells of a visit he made to one of the most influential klephts, Nikotsaras. In order to show respect Koumas addressed the klephtic leader as Achilles. Nikotsaras retorted angrily: ‘What rubbish are you talking about? Who is this Achilles? Handy with a musket, was he?”


The Balkans: Nationalism, War & the Great Powers, 1804-1999′ Misha Glenny, 2000, p. 31
The descendants of those fierce Klephtes are progressing greatly. Now they pass their ignorance and claim themselves as lineal descendants of Achilles

*Did I forgot to mention any other epithet given to them by European fatheads?
