Murrays Handbook of Travels 1854

Before the Greek revolution the peninsula of Cassandra contained 700 families, 600 of which were small proprietors, and 100 families of farmers on the Metokhia of the monasteries of Athos. These 700 families were proprietors of 2500 head of oxen, besides flocks and herds to the number of 20000 or 30000. Such was the situation of this peninsula when news arrived, in 1821, of the revolt in Moldavia, followed by the intelligence of the rising of the Greeks in the south.

The people of Cassandra then resolved to join the revolt. Finding, however, in the course of a few months, that no extensive region N. of Acarnania and Thermopylae had revolted, they repented the step they had taken, and despatched messengers to sue for mercy. However, finally, Abdulabul, the Pasha of Salonica, entered the peninsula, put all the inhabitants to the sword, and razed their habitations to the ground. The peninsula was left wholly untenanted for 2 years, and has never recovered its former prosperity.
