Hello Perf12. Thank you.

Do you know where I can find a copy of Hellas online?

Hi NanoPhilatelic,

The HELLAS ctaalogue is published by A. Karamitsos in Greece:

https://www.karamitsos.com/item.php...84b20df2cc87

It's very reasonably priced at only 15 euros for three volumes.

I find it very useful indeed.

I don't believe it's available as an online catalogue.
