I will provide a quick summary of the interesting points above, with additional explanations/clarifications, in English:
- "Pistiki" were the last remnants of actual Vlach-speakers (and/or actual Shepherds) in Akarnania. By this time (late 19th century), almost all Vlach-speakers (most of the population) of Akarnania & Aetolia were [B][I]Greeks[/I][/B] and fully (self-)hellenized and abandoned their Vlach language.*
- The same name, "Pistiki", is also found among the [U]Vlachs who emigrated to Asia Minor[/U] (Burad left an interesting short testimony). These "Pistiki" of Asia Minor were fully hellenized. The same case happened with the Bomi - the Vlach-speakers of Boeotia - who fully self-hellenized.
- Sarakatsani most likely of Vlach origins - they used to wear very similar clothing/costumes as the Farsherioti Vlachs.

* - Vlach-speakers basically comprised the bulk and outright majority of Aetolia, Akarnania, and adjacent areas in the Middle Ages; these regions comprised an extensive district which was known in the Middle Ages as Small Wallachia (Μικρή Βλαχία; Mikrí vlahía).

The Peloponnesian city of Tripoli was known as 'Dobrolitsa' during the Middle Ages, with even Wikipedia suggesting a South Slavic origin.

[COLOR="Blue"][B]Tripoli[/B][/COLOR] - For his part, François Pouqueville talks about colonies established by refugees of Slavic and Vlach origin from northern Greece and if Slavo-Vlach etymologies are good Tripolitsa is likely to be one of them.

La ville fut fondée vers le xive siècle. Son nom grec de « Tripolitsa » pourrait peut-être se référer aux trois villes alors abandonnées de Mantinée, Tégée et Pallantion. Au Moyen Âge, elle apparaît sous les noms de « [B]Dobrolica[/B] » signifiant en slave, selon les interprétations, « bon lieu » ou « ville aux chênes », [B]de « [/B][B]Drobolitsa[/B][B] » signifiant en valaque « morcelé, fragmenté, partagé »[/B], de « Tripolizza » pour les génois et les vénitiens au xviie siècle, et de « Tarabolusa » pour les turcs. [B]De son côté, François Pouqueville évoque des colonies établies par des [COLOR="blue"]réfugiés d'origine slave et valaque venus du nord de la Grèce et si les étymologies slavo-valaques sont les bonnes, Tripolitsa pourrait être l'une d'elles[/COLOR][/B].

[B]Agrinio (Greek: Αγρίνιο, Latin: Agrinium) is the [U]largest city of the Aetolia-Acarnania regional unit[/U] of Greece[/B] and its largest municipality, with 106,053 inhabitants. In medieval times and until 1836, the city was known as Vrachori (Βραχώρι).

[COLOR="blue"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="Black"]From this link, we read the following relevant points[/COLOR]:
- The city of Agrinio was founded by Vlachs in the beginning of the 13th century
- The previous name of the city (Vrachori) according to the prevailing etymological approach comes from the word Vlachohori
- The Vlach language group is therefore an integral part of Aetolia-Acarnania and especially the city of Agrinio for centuries[/SIZE][/COLOR]

The residents of modern Agrinio and adjacent areas are mostly (Self-) Hellenized descendants of medieval Vlachs who formed the ethnic bulk of Aetolia-Acarnania as a whole. (I also read recently that not that long ago some [B]Souliotes[/B] and Epirotes came from the north and settled in Agrinio.)

Bernard Randolph - 1643

[SIZE="3"]IT Lyes to the North of Boeotia extending North West and South East about 120 miles; Its Breadth, at the broadest place not above 30. It was taken from the Venetians in the year 1471. The soil is very fertile, affording all sorts of Graine, Wine, and Oyle, as likewise Flesh and Fowl; the Sea abounding with Fish. Since the Turks have had possession of it, [B]most of the Greeks are Fled from the Villages, and Townes; So as the inland places are mostly supplyed by Al∣baneses[/B], who are the Shepherds, and serve the Turks at their Farmes. Formerly here were two Citys, and 500. Townes and Villages; Now there is but one, which can be called a City, which is the ancient Chalcis and now hath the name of the Island; by the Turks it is called Egriboz. It stands on a point of Land, having the Sea two Thirds about it. Betwixt it and the Maine is a small Island, with a strong Castle. From the Maine to the small Island is a bridge built up∣on six good Arches, and thence to the Maine

...

None but Turks and Jews live within the Ca∣stle, where are very spacious houses, and four which deserve the name of Seraglios; One for the Basha, at the right hand coming into the Castle from the Port; One for his Lievetenant or Ki∣ahja; a Third belonging to Ibrahim Aga's Son (of whose Father we will speak anon; ) and the Fourth, to Muzlee Aga; Which are very richly set out with carved work and painting.

Vasili: [COLOR="Blue"]"For many years, Arvanite language was accepted as the language of the people. So, the Arvanite language was the language of the people, while the official language was Hellenic. The most elite area of Nafplio is called "Arvanitja". It is the first capital."[/COLOR]

Vasili: [COLOR="blue"]"The Arvanites have been an extraordinary factor. They were 90% of the uprising against the Ottomans in 1921."[/COLOR]
