Story:

The brick comes from the brick construction area of the Greek village of Genitsarohori (or Genitsariotes), 5 km south of Aivali. The inhabitants, apart from agriculture and olive-growing, were engaged in the construction of bricks and tiles, supplying the whole region of Aivali, with clientele of over 60-70,000 inhabitants, Greeks and Turks. The Genitsarohori brickworks were famous for their durability. Until today, such bricks are found in many houses, all of which are sealed with Greek inscriptions of the place (ΓΕΝΝΙΤΣΑΡΟΧΩΡΙΟΝ, ΓΕΝΙΤΣΑΡ, ΓΕΝΙΤΣΧΩΡ, etc.) and the initials of the manufacturer, like in this case, Θ.Κ.
