      George Speis, a researcher in Greece, writes (March 2012):

      Michael Agelastos, owner of the Zea Coal Company in the island of Kea, was partner at the «Agelastos & Sfezzo Cie» in Istanbul and was involved with the coal company from about 1895 until 1910 when it was bought by Mihalinos. Agelastos created the Zea Coal Company with Welsh coal to supply the British War Fleet at a very critical time of high tensions between the British Empire and The French-Russian coalition. The reason was to prevent the Russians from occupying Istanbul. He must have been a very fascinating person. He was a member of the British Ottoman Chamber of Commerce and must have had very close relations with Sir James Whittall of the Great House, who established the Chamber and was highly regarded as the richest Levantine.
    • According to the Istanbul City Directories 1883-1897, one M. Agelasto, a merchant, of Agelasto Sfezzo & Co., 41 Arslan St., Pera, founded the Greek House in 1883, succeeded by H and N Agelasto. In 1887 M Agelasto was associated with Aristide C. Sfezzo, under the actual firm of Kutchuk, 56-58 Millet Han. They were steamship agents in the coal trade. According to the 1913 directory, one Michel Agelasto was a steamship agent, 24-26 Omer Abid Han, Galata and resided at 11 Rue Anadolou, Péra.
    • His 1902 Istanbul directory listing says he resides in Athens.
    • 4 Dec 1914: Michael Stam. Agelasto, 51, born Athens, swore allegiance to the Greek government.
    • Residence: at DOD, Artis 4, Athens, Greece
    • MICHAEL S(tamati) AGELASTO, aged 60, is included in his brother Demosthenes's hereditary title certificate, issued Mayor of Athens, 18 Jun 1923. [4]
    • 1815 Vienna city directory lists Michael Agelasto under Negroponte Angerinos and Company. [5]

    1905 Athens phone directory
    M. Agelasto is listed for phone no. 249 in the 1905 Athens phonebook (French ed.). (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)
    1933-34 Athens directories
    The directories list a business: M. Agelastos & I. Sotiropoulos, 4 Amalias St. The address is the Miltiades Negroponte building. George Agelastos reports:

    An article in the Chios newspaper I Alithia (The truth), 19 Jan 2010, describes important Athens buildings built and/or owned by wealthy (and noble!) Chiots. One of these was the "Miltiades Negroponte building" at the most central (and noblest!) place of Athens: at Syntagma (Constitution) Square, directly opposite the Greek Parliament which formerly was the King's Palace. That building (it still existed in the 1950s but has been replaced by a modern one) was situated at the corner Amalias/Othonos St. It must have been a quite big building with numerous flats and business facilities in the ground floor. It probably had two entrances, one from Amalias and another from Othonos Street.

    George concludes: these two addresses "12 Othonos St" and "4 Amalias St" found in the 1915, 1921 and 1933 directories were both in the same building, owned by Miltiades Negroponte. This might also mean (possibly but not necessarily) that all persons listed as living or having their business in that building (Miltiades & daughter Helen, St[ylianos?] Negroponte as well as M. Agelasto) were in some way related to each other. (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)
