Panagis Skouzes (1776-1847), one of the first members of the Philike Etaireia, supplied the first Greek army with guns for the War of Independence of 1821, on his own expenses. Georgios Skouzes (1811-1884), son of Panagis, was originally involved in commerce in Trieste, but later participated in the establishment of the National Bank of Greece, the Ionian-Industrial Bank, and the Athens-Peiraeus Railway Company.
