What I can see

The marble bust of the Grevena metropolitan Aimilianos, a work by Anastasios Papadopoulos, is 1.06m high and is placed on a 1.97m high marble base. “Ethnomartyr Aimilianos Lazaridis, metropolitan of Grevena, 1877-1911, from Permata, Asia Minor” is written on it. It is not a sculpture of great artistic value, but it aims to highlight Aimilianos as a historical figure, as can be seen from the bold lines of his beard. The back side of the sculpture has not been sculpted.

What I can't see

Aimilianos Lazaridis was metropolitan of the city of Grevena and actively participated in the Macedonian Struggle for the preservation and defense of Greek identity and Christianity in the region of Macedonia. He was murdered by some Vlach-speakers and comitatzis, who were Greek-origin members of guerilla groups that acted against the Ottoman Empire and served the interests of Bulgaria.
