Note The identification of ‘Petraki’ with the well-known Greek Orthodox cantor Petros Peloponnesios is accepted in the most recent edition of Öztuna’s encyclopaedia of Turkish music (2006), though this is not stated in the 1990 edition. The first edition (1969–76) does not include an entry for Petraki. Cf. (Türk Mûsikîsi Ansiklopedisi, TMA)
Kalaitzidis also accepts the identification. (Post-Byzantine Music Manuscripts as a Source for Oriental Secular Music..., Kalaitzidis 2012, p. 149)
The identification is further supported by TA110, which contains an attribution to ‘Pēt‘raki lambadarikes’ (Բէթրագի լամպատարիգես). (TA110, TA110, p. 64)
However, it should be noted that there were other Greek Orthodox musicians known as Petraki in Istanbul. A instrumentalist at the court of Mahmûd II (r. 1808–39), for example, is referred to in a document from 1837 as ‘çalgıcı Petraki’. (Elhân-ı Aziz : Sultan Abdülaziz Devrinde Sarayda Mûsikî, Toker 2016, p. 54n67)
‘Tiryaki’ (as found in some sources) may be a misreading of پتراکی . See e.g. (NATM/[I], NATM/[I], p. 260)
