Biography

Until 2008 this athlete was listed in most sources as Dionysius Kasdaglis and little more was known of him except that he lived in Egypt and was the brother of Xenofon Kasdaglis. Recent research, confirmed by relatives of the two Olympians, has revealed that he was Dimitrios Kasdaglis (alternatively Casdagli), the elder brother of Xenofon, who was born in Lancashire, England. The Kasdaglis/Casdagli family were cotton merchants who left Egypt to settle in England. The family were originally of Russian origin.

Kasdaglis left England to run the Egyptian arm of the family business in 1895. Whilst he is listed as Greek in the Official Report of the 1896 Games and was domiciled in Egypt, we have evidence only of his British citizenship. A case could be made to him to have represented any of three nations, Greece, Great Britain or Egypt.
