The name may have changed or the village could simply not exist anymore. Also very possible the name was just incorrectly recorded which isn't uncommon from foreign newspapers in regards to the Balkans at the time.

Risto I found the village here under the new name of Avlonas. It was changed in 1927, a period in which the Greek government pursued a policy to Hellenise all the country's toponyms. The name 'Salesi' to me sounds like an Albanisation of a Romance word.

Thanks mate. I also came across that village name on Google as soon as I searched for Salesi. So many skeletons in the closet of our Southern neighbours.

Salesi is just one village, one example.

The whole of Attica was an Arvanite province. According to George Finlay (in 1861) "Albanian colonists now occupy all Attica and Megaris, with the exception of the towns of Athens and Megara, where they form only a portion of the population." Furthermore, in the book "Greek Dress: From Ancient Times to the Early 20th Century" by Iōanna Papantōniou it says that "...costume in Attica was therefore associated with the Arvanites..."

Also, a report from 1820 explicitly states that one third of Athens and much of Attica spoke Albanian. So many skeletons it is starting to look like Coco.

Dionysios Pyrros, Venice 1810



"You may never want to call yourself Romaioi, but Hellenes, because the Romaioi, that is, the Romanoi, barbarized and made Greece (their?) home. And if you have a new name that is Roman, Jewish, Russian, Arabic, you must change it to a Hellenic name, namely Miltiades, Themistocles, Achilles, Theseus, Alexander, Plato, Demosthenes, etc..."


[Romaioi = Romanoi = Romans]

1) Armenian Mekhitarists built a monastery in the Peloponnese

URL:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mekhitarists

"In 1700 Mekhitar went to Istanbul and began to gather disciples around him. Mechitar formally joined the Latin Church, and in 1701, with sixteen companions, he formed a religious institute of which he became the superior. They encountered the opposition of other Armenians and were compelled to move to the Morea (Peloponnese), at that time Venetian territory, where they built a monastery in 1706."

2) ARMENIANS IN CRETE

URL:
https://www.facebook.com/13933652944...0907399285043/

"THE ARMENIAN PRESENCE in the island goes back to 961, when the Byzantine Emperor of ARMENIAN descent, Nicephoros Phocas liberated Crete from the Arab conquerors. The deed was realized with the help of thousand of soldiers of the Armeniacon Thema, the military bases on the borders of Armenia. After completing the mission, the Armenian soldiers made roots all over the island, giving their native country's name to villages (Armeni, Armenokhori, Armenogeia), to summer places (Amari), to different sites (Armenocambos, Armenopetra). Their influence was extended to the architecture, to the vocabulary, to the dress and the preference of black colour, to the boots and head cover, even to some habits as the use of weapons during feasts, the artcraft of Armenian knifes, the vengeance."
