From 1 January 2011, in accordance with the Kallikratis plan (Law 3852/2010), the administrative system of Greece was drastically overhauled. The former system of 13 regions, 54 prefectures and 1033 municipalities and communities was replaced by 7 decentralized administrations, 13 regions and 325 municipalities.

Geonames, however, still uses the old system:

14 Admin1 names found (shown with Admin1Code): Attica(ESYE31), Central Greece(ESYE24), Central Macedonia(ESYE12), Crete(ESYE43), East Macedonia and Thrace(ESYE11), Epirus(ESYE21), Ionian Islands(ESYE22), Mount Athos(736572), North Aegean(ESYE41), Peloponnese(ESYE25), South Aegean(ESYE42), Thessaly(ESYE14), West Greece(ESYE23), West Macedonia(ESYE13),

55 Admin2 names found (shown with Admin2Code): Chios(50), Lefkada(26), Nomarchia Anatolikis Attikis(445406), Nomarchia Athinas(44540, Nomarchia Dytikis Attikis(445407), Nomos Achaias(3, Nomos Aitolias kai Akarnanias(31), Nomos Argolidos(36), Nomos Arkadias(41), Nomos Artas(20), Nomos Attikis(35), Nomos Chalkidikis(15), Nomos Chanias(43), Nomos Dodekanisou(47), Nomos Dramas(4), Nomos Evrou(1), Nomos Evrytanias(30), Nomos Evvoias(34), Nomos Florinis(, Nomos Fokidos(32), Nomos Fthiotidos(29), Nomos Grevenon(10), Nomos Ileias(39), Nomos Imathias(12), Nomos Ioanninon(17), Nomos Irakleiou(45), Nomos Kardhitsas(23), Nomos Kastorias(9), Nomos Kavalas(14), Nomos Kefallinias(27), Nomos Kerkyras(25), Nomos Kilkis(6), Nomos Korinthias(37), Nomos Kozanis(11), Nomos Kykladon(49), Nomos Lakonias(42), Nomos Larisis(21), Nomos Lasithiou(46), Nomos Lesvou(51), Nomos Magnisias(24), Nomos Messinias(40), Nomos Pellis(7), Nomos Pierias(16), Nomos Piraios(406101), Nomos Prevezis(19), Nomos Rethymnis(44), Nomos Rodopis(2), Nomos Samou(4, Nomos Serron(5), Nomos Thesprotias(1, Nomos Thessalonikis(13), Nomos Voiotias(33), Nomos Xanthis(3), Nomos Zakynthou(2, Trikala(22).

I hope that this can be fixed one day. Best wishes to all,
