26 December 1930: Rupert Gunnis did not hesitate to go after buried treasures, putting faith in old men’s stories
“Alexis, Yanni and I left early. Left Yanni at Famagusta where I had lunch with Pavlides. He and I to the old town where we collected George and A. and a man who said he knew where buried treasure was. We trailed about but the man was so vague that I threw in my hand and G. and A and I to the forest hut at Salamis where we spent the night.”
