I've scoured the internet on Greek history.

I even asked my local priest...

... but I've yet to find any evidence of any impact of classical Greece on the Kalamares (or the Greek wannabes of Cyprus).


By the way.

1. If you were a Cypriot you would know the word is "Kalamaraes" not Kalamares.
2. You would also know that "Kalamaras" stands for the educated person from Greece (have you ever heard of "χαρτί και καλαμάρι" "Cypriot"?)
I, as a Cypriot, would never use that term to distinguish the mainland Greeks from the Greeks of Cyprus. Because it would be like distinguishing between the educated and the uneducated. I would not degrade my fellow Cypriots like that. Capisce, "Cypriot"?

Probably due to frequent violation of this rule:

Why, they didn't teach you that at Oxford University? Strange!!!!!!


not strange atall....


Precisely. Because there was nothing to teach on the issue. Just your wishful thinking. And what astonishes me is how come an Oxford man like you uses guess work and wishful thinking to contradict proven historical facts. Well, I suppose, for some, every method can be used as long as it is to degrade Hellenism.
