Arthur is 92 years of age and lives in Bondi Junction, Sydney, Australia.

His parents were Panayiotis, and Maria (nee, Trifilis) from Aroniathika.

The family's parachoukli was "Ksipolitos".

The nickname proabably derived from the famiy's poverty - not having sufficient funds in order to buy shoes - or from an ancestor who refused to wear shoes - whilst performing his day to day activities.

It would be great to have Athur's more detailed family history on the web-site.
