Description: In April 1870, four aristocratic travellers, three British and one Italian, were kidnapped by Greek brigands while on an excursion to Marathon and held for ransom. The negotiations were bungled amid political meddling, a rescue attempt failed too, and the four men were eventually murdered by their captors at Dilessi, on the Boetian coast. The events triggered a crisis between Greece and Great Britain.
