Heroes Monument

The heroes’ monument is situated near the main entrance of the village.

It is a very modest monument dedicated to the heroes of the village. On a cenotaph that is placed on the monument, lies the figure of a Spartan hero. Above this, there is a small statue of Liberty with its wings wide open. It seems like covering the entire monument with its imposingness. Behind the statue and on a wall built with small bricks, there are four chalcographies of the heroes:
1. Andreas Argyrou
2. Andreas Lardos
3. Andreas Chrysostomou
4. Sotiris Maratheftis

Andreas Argyrou was a corporal in the Cypriot army. He served in the rifle of Polemi. He was burnt alive during the battles of Massoura-Kokkines by the bombs napalm, in 8 August 1964.

Andreas Lardos was a teacher. He served in the Sanitary Corp. He also died on 8 August 1964 when the hospital of Pachiamos was bombed by the Turks.

Andreas Chrysostomou was a motor mechanic and cousin of Andreas Lardos. He also joined the Sanitary Corp and died on 8 August 1964 when the hospital of Pachiamos was bombed by the Turks.

Sotiris Maratheftis was a reserve officer in the Cypriot army during the Turkish invasion, the summer of 1974. He fought heroically and died during the battles in Mia Milia, on 14 August 1974.
