SUMMARY

After the foundation of the Greek state clear attempts to control brigandage were made. This, however, was often difficult, because of both the neighbouring Ottoman territories and the existence of armed groups that often integrated into the army or the police in critical periods, aiming at permanency. Some brigands, such as chief brigand Christos Davelis, could easily pass from one side to the other. The massacre of Dilesi in 1870, where English and Italian trevellers were held hostages and then murdered, raised an international outcry against Greece and was critical for the suppression of banditry.
