I think you might be after Aglantzia. An area of Nicosia suburbs.

just a thought if my dad's brother george worked for the coca cola factory in nicosia then this like sounding name (galantcta) would be close by? just wondering if george would travel to work but would be close to home...what and how did the greeks get to work in the 50'S would it be on foot or bus some other form of transport? :)

The coca-cola factory was (may still be, is it still there???) in the neighbourhood called Strovollos, which is a couple of miles to east of Aglangia.
