At the end of the nineteenth century the Arvanitidis and Sideridis families were found to have settled in Constantinople. They were merchant families who from the 1870s were also occupied with navigation and shipping, especially with the transportation of petroleum from Batumi. The shipping activity of the Sideridis family ceased in 1914 whilst that of the Arvanitidis family after 1930.
