    1928 Athens directory
    He is listed in the 1928 Athens city directory. 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 That building (it still existed in the 1950s but has been replaced by a modern one) was situated at the corner Amalias/Othonos St. It must have been a quite big building with numerous flats and business facilities in the ground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.
