Greece

Greece is officially known as the Hellenic Republic.  It is surrounded by water, the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Ionian Seas.  In the North it is bordered by Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria.

The first Greek stamps known as “Large Hermes heads” were issued in 1861.  Excluding one set of stamps issued in 1927, all Greek stamps were inscribed Hellas (ΕΛΛΑΣ).
