This is the case of the purchase of a property in Epidaurus in 2002, by his villager, a retired officer of the Navy John B. A 330 sq. m. farm in the location "Brinia", was sold to Mr. Adrianos against 2.856 euro , which was characterized as a "symbolic" price, by the experts of the real estate in the area, since he paid less than one euro per meter! ".
