Patmos, banned

Sign at the Central Square in Chora, Patmos, where the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian is located.
The sign reads: “Saint Lesbian Square, tiled by Theodoros N. Kokkinakis at 1904”
Though the word Lesbian originally means a female inhabitant of Lesbos, the letter “s” has been erased (by the Monastery?) to avoid any homoerotic misconception.
Ironically, due to the white brush stroke, the gay interpretation is even more obvious.
Photo by me. Sorry for the quality, but I (still) can’t afford an iPhone…
Check the sign before the censorship here.
