This monument was raised to honor the fallen soldiers from Agiasos in the national and social fights of Greece’s modern history.
During the bloody national and social struggles of Greece’s modern history, Agiasos paid a heavy blood tax, sacrificing many of her children on their altar. With this work we attempt a first recording of the dead (as historical research never ends), paying in principle a minimal tribute to their memory.
The statue has the marking “ΔΩΞΑ ΣΤΟΥΣ ΗΡΩΑΣ” meaning “Honor to the heroes”.
