LOL, Isn't there anything, I mean ANYTHING, that this Exarchos can get right?

The Melas paternal branch presents themselves as an aristocratic family related to Strategopoulos and Melissenos. They seem to adopt a myth (?) that the Melas Tower of 15th century in Pogdoriani (Parakalamos in Ioannina district) is related to them and their paternal ancestor. Not sure what to say, but according to Exarchos, that makes them... Vlach!

This is the "tower"
