I have an uncle in
Koroni | έχω
expression, which is well-known allover Greece, is used as a testimony
of the means that someone has to achieve his aim. There are many
versions that stand for its explanation.
Among others, there is one version, which goes back in time into the
period of the Turkish conquest of Greece when a Pasha, established in
Tripoli, as a token of his gratitude to an uncle of his that supported
him in his studies and then appointed him as Bey of Koroni. This
'uncle', a benign man, in consideration of his wish to help the people
of Koroni, whenever they asked him a favor was issuing letters of
recommendation addressed to the pasha of Tripoli and all their matters
were settled accordingly.
