History Zante Town Zante Town
During the prefecture of Andreas Ioannou, another marble memorial column from the central cemetery, the work of Iakovos Malakate (1808-1903), was transferred to Solomos Square, which was transformed into a column commemorating the Battle of Nafpaktos (October 7, 1571), which bears the inscription: 'Zakynthos honoured the sacred memory of the Zacynthians who defended Christian Europe, and gratefully erected this column'.
