Fustanella and greek propaganda
 
[I]The historic link to the fustanella involves an ancient statue found in the area around the acropolis in Athens dated from the third century BC. [B]Nevertheless, no ancient Greek garments have survived to confirm that the origins of the fustanella are indeed in the pleated garments or chitons that were worn by men in Pericles' Athens[/B].[/I]

Fabricating Greekness, by Michael Skafidas.

Interesting. Todays grk says otherwise Mr. Skafidas.
