Map of Kythira with Elafonisos and inset of Diakofti held at National Archives London, dated 18??

One of several maps of Kythira held at the National Archives in London. Unfortunately none of them are very precisely catalogued, but probably safe to assume as the map is in Greek it was produced after the British left, and if you look very carefully under the title ΝΗΣΟΣ ΚΥΘΗΡΑ, in the squiggle, there appears to be a year which I think starts 18, and to the right and left some writing. The map is quite large and my eyesight is poor so I didn't notice these features when I took the photograph and didn't take a close up of that section.  Next time I visit the archives I'll be sure to do that!
