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"

It's possible Exarchos might be using cheap drugs........ but:

1) There is no difference between "Greek Macedonian Fighter" Uniform and Vlach Costume.

2) The English Folk-Play, E. K. Chambers.

Page 229: "In Epirus, where the inhabitants are mainly Hellenized Vlachs, there is a spring revival ceremony without a combat."
