Costaki Anthopoulos (Greek: Κωστάκης Ανθόπουλος, Turkish: Kostaki Antopulos Paşa) (1835–1902) was an Ottoman pasha of Greek origin.

Life[edit]

He became a professor at the Ottoman Naval Academy; then entered the legal branch of the Turkish service, rising to the post of imperial procurator at the court of cassation. He was governor-general of Crete; and, in 1895, was appointed Ottoman ambassador in London, a post which he continued to hold until his death at Constantinople in 1902.[1]

He bore throughout his career the reputation of an intelligent and upright public servant.[1]

In June 1902, the Sultan conferred on him the decoration Nisan-i Iftihar (Order of Glory) in diamonds, in recognition of the loyal services rendered by him to the Ottoman Empire.[2]
