Kyriakos, Aristotelis. Aristotelis Kyriakos (?-?) was a leader of a gang of bandits in Greece in the 1860s. Kyriakos was notorious in his time and was active from Epirus to Athens, and even fought guerrilla actions against the Ottomans. In the 1920s Kyriakos appeared in various Greek pulp serials as a Gentleman Bandit, robbing from the wicked rich (especially members of the monarchy), giving to the deserving poor, rescuing maidens in peril, and especially fighting against evil foreigners, most especially the Ottomans.
