    Well I need help again with a translation and date. I found this Greek Propaganda Poster.

    Can someone help with a translation and perhaps a date?

    The only kind of Greek I read and write is ancient Greek, but I am sure one of our Greek members will chime in. Hopefully.

    I see the Greek word for "victory" - (in the text in a declined form: την νικην)
    And three names: Παπανδρεου (Papandreou), Μακαριος (Makarios) and Διγενης (Digenes)

    The only relevant "Diegenes" I can think of, is:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgios_Grivas

    Don't know if the "Papandreou" is the Papandreou that fled from Greece to the US during the second World War, and became a US citizen?
    But the name Makarios makes me wonder if it is not a poster from the 1960s? The Makarios I know of is either:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makarios_III or Makarios II that was active in Cypriotic politics right after WWII.

    But I don't really want to ruin this with a wrongful translation, this is not the Iliad after all.
    I will leave it to others on the forum to help you out

    I am afraid it is all Greek to me. The only other language I can half way read is Cherokee.

    Hello from Greece.The poster is about the demand for unification (i hope i spell it right..) Cyprus and Greece
    Top left : We were asking for unification, we are asking (still - now) for unification
    Top right : Unification was and still is the goal of our struggle (fight)
    Bottom left : Unification will come, is coming
    Bottom right : United for victory, united for unification, united for the nation
    ΔΙΓΕΝΗΣ and ΜΑΚΑΡΙΟΣ : as stated above by 37Webbing
