Nomikos Lines/Olympic Cruises
Although the cover says "Olympic Cruises" with Nomikos Lines acting as general agent, the brochure has "Nomikos Lines" inside with Nomikos services, fares and list of agents. Nomikos was the original owner of the Achilleus and Agamemnon, but sold them to Olympic Cruises during 1958, apparently acting as agent initially.
