This is a rerun of an ancient Mycenaean tale, that of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra....(though the "n" in her name may be a Byzantine addition.....) and some here claim Myceanean Ancestory for Cypriots,,though that too is a myth now seemingly disproven by Genetics as the principal popoluation source for Cyprus seems more likely to be pre Mycenaean settlement from Levant and Anatolia, likely over 6000 years ago, with only a modest contribution from any Hellenic source about 3000 yesrs later.....




Now that is spite........ :D :D :D

Nonsense. The distributions of older stock with newer stock fit exactly with the continuing history of exchanges between the Greek islands and further afield where the Hellenic world, previous and later, touched.

Try to ignore the science if you like, in particular where it does not conform to your own blinkered notions, but the science says you are wrong: https://investigativegenetics.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13323-016-0032-8 as it reflects 66% ancient Anatolian 24% Ancient levant likely reflecting early westwards Migration of Eastern Anatolian/northern Levantine peoples (early agriculturalists) towards the Balkans and Greece, several millennia, possibly as much a five, may be three, before the mythical Mycenean influx, where the relatively small Balkan /Greek influence is the rest, and demonstrably later.

The voyaging of a few merchant traders would not likley influence the picture much but in any event there was nothing demonstrably Greek or Hellenic in existance at that time of early settlement, it likely only emerged after about 2000 BC and only expanded out of the Greece/Aegean region after about 1600 BC which is consistent with the date of the earliest Greek/Balkan genetic influence on Cyprus.

Anyone dumb enough to marry a young, cheap, Brazilian gold-digging whore deserves such fate.

RIP to the fool who despite all the travels never acquired common sense.

A tad harsh, to wish the man dead for his folly.....
