Super-prefectures of Greece

The super-prefectures of Greece are a second-degree organization of local self-government and an administrative division between the peripheries and the prefectures. They are headed by an elected super-prefect, whose role is largely ceremonial, since most of the prefectural duties are exerted by the prefects coming under the super-prefect.

List of the Greek super-prefectures:

*Athens-Piraeus super-prefecture (Athens Prefecture, Piraeus Prefecture)
*Drama-Kavala-Xanthi super-prefecture (Drama Prefecture, Kavala Prefecture, Xanthi Prefecture)
*Rhodope-Evros super-perfecture (Rhodope Prefecture, Evros Prefecture)
