The residents of Prastion responded to each request for defence of the nation. During the EOKA liberation struggle from 1955 to 1959, Stelios Agathokleous played a crucial role in the organisation of EOKA’s actions. After his demise, the community erected a monument in his honour. The erection in the hero’s honour is the minimum act of respect and appreciation for his person. In addition to himself and his family, a hero’s honour also extends to his hometown. Thus, every year on the anniversary of his death, following the memorial service held in the church, a wreath-laying ceremony is held. Stelios Agathokleus’ memorial service is conducted in mid-June.
