Mitata pre.1939

Mitata pre.1939
Copyright (1939)

This group photo from Mitata (although it looks to me like it was taken from a balcony in Keramitianika, a subvillage of Mitata) must have been taken before 1939, because the white-haired man in the centre of the photo, Brettos Haniotis (Aglacitis), my great grandfather, died in that year. The only other people in the photo I can identify are Brettos Haniotis' second wife (to his right) and the young woman right in front of him holding a baby - that is Katarina Haniotis (a really lovely aunt of mine who still lives in Mitata).

Can anyone help me with the names of the others in the picture?

Postscript by Sophia Zantiotis,cousin of the submitter:
This is definitely the balcony of our house - Prineas (Koutsafti) house in Mitata (Keremitianika).
My great great grandfather Ioannis Prineas died in either 1937 or 1938. He is not present in this picture. This is his balcony.
Back row:
