What I can see

The marble bust of Dimitrios Ypsilantis is characterized by plasticity and is placed on a marble base. The sculptor Efthimios Kalevras rendered in detail the facial features of Ypsilantis and is considered one of the best examples of monumental sculpture in the city.

What I can't see

Dimitrios Ypsilantis was the son of a wealthy (Phanariot) family from Moldova and brother of Alexandros Ypsilantis, leader of the Filiki Eteria (secret organization of the Greek war of independence). He was also a military officer, politician and fighter of the Greek Revolution of 1821. During the revolution, he represented his brother and was in charge of military operations, even though he faced the hostility of Greek chieftains and local lords. After the independence of Greece, he was appointed commander of the army in eastern Greece, with victorious operations against the Turks. He was considered one of the most selfless leaders of the Greek war of independence. There are American cities with his name (Ypsilanti) in the states of Michigan, North Dakota and Georgia.
