BEG. MAY 1939, PENTELIKON MOUNTAIN, ATTICA, GREECE, ANTONIS PRIFTIS:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

One Ioannis Yannopoulos reportedly said that in Pentelikon Mountain, Attica, Greece, early in May 1939, at 23:00, Antonis Priftis was coming down the mountain, taking his sheep back to the fold, when he suddenly he saw a bright mushroom-shaped object hovering above some nearby trees. The object had bright searchlights around its rim below and was illuminating the area.

Two strange beings seemed to descend to the ground on one of the beams of the "searchlights." They wore "diverís suits", or were described as "sponge divers". They walked towards the witness and stopped about 3 meters away from him. They did not talk to him, but the witness felt "voices inside his head."

The creatures asked repeatedly him to go with them but the witness refused. They also told him that they had come many times in the same spot and that they would come back again.

After that, they went back to the "flying mushroom" in the same manner. The objectís light seemed to dim and it started gaining height. After a while the object disappeared with great speed, leaving behind it a trail of bright orange light.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Pentelikon Mountain, Attica, Greece, early in May 1939, at 23:00, Mr. Antonis Priftis was coming down the mountain, taking his sheep back to the fold. Suddenly he saw a bright mushroom-shaped object hovering above some nearby trees. The object had bright searchlights around its rim below and was illuminating the area. Two strange creatures seemed to "descend" to the ground on one of the beams of the "searchlights." The creatures were wearing "diverís suits" (the witness described them as sponge divers"). The two creatures walked towards his location and stopped about 3 meters away from him. They did not talk to him, but the witness felt "voices inside his head." The creatures asked repeatedly him to go with them but the witness refused. They also told him that they had come many times in the same spot and that they would come back again. After that, they went back to the "flying mushroom" in the same manner. The objectís light seemed to dim and it started gaining height. After a while the object disappeared with great speed, leaving behind it a trail of bright orange light.

The source is indicated as "Ioannis Yannopoulos".

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

The author indicates that in May 1939 at 11:00 p.m. in Pentelikon Mountain, Attica, Greece, Mr. Antonis Priftis came down the side of a mountain, bringing back his herd of sheep to the sheep-fold when suddenly he saw a shining object in the shape of a mushroom that flew over the close trees.

The object had powerful projectors on its lower circumference, and they lighted all the sector.

Two strange creatures came down to the ground, carried by or slipping on the beam of light of one of the projectors. They wore suits "like those of the sponge fishermen". Both went towards the witness and stopped within three meters of him. They did not speak but the witness perceived "voices inside the head", which asked him on several occasions to come in their apparatus, but Mr. Priftis refused.

They as also told him that they already came many times to the same place and that they will still come. Then they made a half-turn towards the "flying mushroom" and went inside in the same manner they came out, The lights of the apparatus started to decrease and it flew away to reach altitude quickly and to disappear at a high speed, leaving behind a slight wake of orange luminosity.

Jean Sider indicates that the source is Rosales, according to Ioannis Yannopoulos.
