The back row appears to be the Combis Brothers (Grecian Gladiators), Apostolos (1879-1947), Theodoros b.1982, and Athanasios (1885-1971).
I believe the man seated on the left is Michali Patrikios, husband of Marigo Combis, who is seated in the middle, and on the right I believe is Kyriakos Combis (1876-1920) but I would appreciate if someone could confirm the identities these people.
The photo was a part of the archive of photos of the family of Diamandis Haralambos Chlentzos (1874-1969)

This photo was taken in San Francisco, CA around 1917.
Seated is Dimitrios Ioannis Simos (1877-1958) with his son John (1918-1944) seated on his lap.
Iasmia Vourlis Simos (1891-1960) is seated next to him with their daughter Zoe (1917-1987) seated on her lap.
In the back are Dimitrios’ brothers from left to right:
Apostolos (1890-1972) and
The Simos family was originally from Logothetianika. They immigrated to the USA in the early 1900’s, first to New York, then to San Francisco, then finally settling in Bakersfield where the family build the first Greek Orthodox Church there.
Many thanks to Megan Pearse from Bakersfield, CA for identifying each of the family members and providing the dates. Megan is the great granddaughter of Dimitrios Simos. Her grandmother Zoe is seated on her great grandmothers lap.
Megan and me (Vikki Vrettos Fraioli) became acquainted quite randomly when Megan requested to join the Kytherian Society of California Facebook group.
After chatting a bit, we discovered that our families were very close back in the early 1900’s, almost 100 years ago!

In this photo is Marietta Logothetis and her three children Despina (left), Aristoteles (middle) who died as a baby from pneumonia, and Leonidas (right).
Marietta was the only child of Minas and Katerina Logothetis of Logothetianika.
Marietta was orphaned at 13 or 14 years of age. Her divorced parents, Minas and Katerina, both lived in Piraeus, until their deaths (6 months apart) in the early part of the 20th century, possibly around 1910. Marietta was educated at a French Catholic Convent school in Pireaus (name unknown), run by French nuns. Marietta's mother, Katerina, was half Italian and her maternal grandmother, (name unknown), was originally from Naples, Italy. Marietta's maternal grandfather was a ship's captain.
Following the divorce of her parents, Minas Logothetis asked his now ex-wife, Katerina, for custody of his only child. When Katerina refused to hand over her child, Minas disinherited his daughter, Marietta, and never saw her again.
Marietta did inherit her mother's jewellery, all of which was stolen from the marital home by burglars on Andros, where her husband, Pavlos was stationed in the Greek Royal Navy, possibly in 1921. When Pavlos died, Marietta was forced to find work: she trained as a Physiotherapist and, subsequently, lived and worked in Athens at the Evangelismos Hospital. She lived mostly with her husband's young aunts and uncles, who were members of the Kourtis family. Marietta's best friend (name unknown), during her working life, was the matron of the hospital.
Following her parents' death Marietta lived with relatives in Piraeus. She had a first cousin called Alkioni Combis and it was Alkioni's parents who became Marietta's guardians, until her marriage at around the age of 17 or 18 years. Alkioni married a judge and went to live on one of the islands in the Dodecanese with her new husband. Contact with family members from Kythera was limited following Marietta's marriage to Pavlos Pavlou.
Minas Logothetis, Marietta's father, was born around 1846 and as an adult, had a factory in Piraeus that processed waste material from the dock areas where he lived with his family. It is believed that the Logothetis family built a church in Logothetianika, Kythera.
Marietta's daughter Despina Mudie, (nee Pavlou), now 90, lives in England near her eldest daughter, Laura Pavlou-Mudie. Despina, Laura, her sister, Moira and first cousin, Pavlos, would be most appreciative to learn about their Kytherian heritage. If the names, events, and place above are at all familiar to anyone reading this, please contact Laura with information.

Dr Patrikios is a neurologist, and has a research interest in the neuropathology of multiple sclerosis. He is the inaugural Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Brain Bank which is based at the University of Sydney. The brain bank is an initiative of MS Research Australia and the University of Sydney.
Dr Patrikios (b. 1971) was born and raised in Gympie, Queensland, Australia. His parents and grandparents had a take-away/café, known as Patrick’s Café, and he grew up working in the family business along with his three siblings, Steve, Helena and Angelo. His parents, Theo Patrick and Kathy (nee Comino) were also born in Australia. All his grandparents were from Kythera, Greece. They are: paternal grandfather Stavros Patrikios (aka Steve Patrick) from Logothetianika; paternal grandmother Eleni Sophiou (aka Helen) from Christoforianikia; maternal grandfather Panayiotis Kominos (aka Peter Comino, paratsoukli Psilovangelis) from Perlegkianika; and maternal grandmother Maria Sklavou (aka Blavaromaria, parastoukli Pentopoulou) from Mitata.
Dr Patrikios was raised with the name Peter Theodore Patrick but changed his name officially to his Greek name with which he was christened, Panayiotis Patrikios, when he was 18, although in English he is still called Peter.
He attended Gympie Central Primary School, Gympie State High School, and then Aspley State High School (in Brisbane). He studied medicine at the University of Queensland, graduating in 1995. He undertook his internship and specialty training at Royal Brisbane Hospital with secondments to other hospitals including Maryborough, Rockhampton, and Prince Charles Hospitals. His advanced training in neurology was undertaken at Royal Hobart Hospital in Tasmania, and then Royal Prince Alfred and Concord Repatriation General Hospitals in Sydney. He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. He completed a Doctorate of Medical Science at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, in 2006. This was in the field of MS neuropathology and was performed under the supervision of Prof Dr Hans Lassmann, a renowned expert in this field. On return to Australia he was appointed as the inaugural Director of the MS Brain Bank, officially commencing this role in January 2007. The aim of the bank is to acquire human brain tissue as well as other specific body tissues and fluids upon which to conduct medical research. People with MS will be asked to register with the bank and when they die the tissues will be collected at autopsy. The research will be primarily aimed at finding the cause of Multiple Sclerosis but also to answer many other questions about the disease and to hopefully find the cure for this disease. The bank will hopefully acquire tissue from many sites within Australia and also New Zealand and elsewhere.
Dr Patrikios qualifications are thus: MBBS(Qld), FRACP and DMedSci(Vienna). He is fluent in English, Greek and German.
MS Research Australia is working with Dr Peter Patrikios to set up a major research initiative in Australia – a national MS Brain Bank, based at Sydney University.
Research into Multiple Sclerosis in Australia needs more resources, including access to MS-specific human tissue. This facility will serve this purpose and Peter is now its Foundation Director.
