Statue of Adonis Oikonomos

This Hydriot captain played a crucial role in getting Hydra to join the liberation efforts of the Greek Revolutionary War of 1821, despite the resistance of several of the island’s nobles. Though Hydra did eventually join the fight, Oikonomos paid with his life for it, as he was murdered by conspirators of A. Liontou in December of 1821.
