Lack of familiarity with the Greek language has meant that the full range of manhole covers has not been tackled. There are undoubtedly many covers with inscriptions relating to the local municipality and founders' names also appear, often with their telephone numbers. Names are often abbreviated, sometimes to the first letter only, for example ΔΘ means D[imos] Th[essaloniki]. Dates also figure frequently. While there are some striking designs, there is not much to arouse the interest of the operculist and unfortunately most of the covers are of recent date. Covers have been arranged by the place in which they were seen rather than by the place of production.Agios Nikolaos, Chalkadiki
