THEODORAKIS GREATEST "LIVING GREEK"






SKY (SKAI.gr) has organized a “gallup” asking the people who are the 100 greatest Greeks of all times.




The gallup has finished for the 90 Greeks following the first 10 and will be continued only among them.
Mikis Theodorakis is 11th. But all before him are dead.
So he is the first living “greatest Greek”.
This is a wonderful proof how Greek people love and respect him.

The first10 alphabetically:

- Alexander the Great (actually Nr. 1)
- Aristotle (actually Nr. 4)
- Venizelos Eleftherios (actually Nr. 8)
- Kapodistrias (actually Nr. 6)
- Karamanlis Konstantinos (actually Nr. 10)
- Kolokotronis Theodoros (actually Nr. 3)
- Papanikolaou Georgios (actually Nr. 2)
- Pericles (actually Nr. 9)
- Plato (actually Nr. 7)
- Socrates (actually Nr. 5)
