Arthur is the only Accountant in Cobar - a town of 6,000 people.
He ventured to Cobar 19 years ago for a "short stint", and has remained in the town ever since.
He is the son of the late Con Conomos. His mother Helen was a Mavromatis. She lives in Kensington, Sydney.
His fathers' family derive from Milipotamos, and his mothers from Pitsinathes.
His fathers brothers were Terry, Theo and George.
His father ran Peters Cafe in the town of Oberon for 18 years. He also ran a Fruit Shop and a General Store, come Deli in Oberon at the same time.
[It would be interesting to verify whether Peters Cafe was originally established by Peter Capsanis. The entry for Peter in In Their Own Image, by Effie Alexakis & Leonard Janiszewski, (also on this web-site - search under Capsanis), states that Peter was "...born in 1906, (and) left Kythera for Australia at the age of fifteen. After undertaking cafe work in such towns as Uralla and Woodstock in western NSW, and even turning his hand to seasonal fruit picking, in 1935 he settled at Oberon (near Bathurst), where he established a cafe].
[Find a number of other references to Oberon, by utilising the internal search engine.]
Unlike most of the other towns in the Western districts of New South Wales, Cobar has not had a very profound Greek or Kytherian influence over the years.
