I have spent a couple of days each year in and around the harbours west of Piraeus but am a little confused about the naming.
For instance Elefsina, Elevsis, Eleusis & Elefsis all appear to be the same place but is the shipyard in Elefsina as shown on Google,Michelin & Nakas Road maps or Eleusis as used on Shipspotting?
I know it is a matter of translation from the Greek alphabet but surely there must be standard.
In addition what do we put as the location of the old drill ships and heavy lift vessels in the bay? Is it where the ships are or from where the photo was taken?
Any help most appreciated so I can record the correct place when uploading.

Hi Russell
Elefsis or eleusis as I like to call it is just part of the bay of eleusis , many different towns all come together along that coast
From aspropyrgos nearest to the skaramanga shipyards and the oil facility to the other end neo perama its a long way
I think itís best hearing from one of our Greek members for the correct clarification
Although I have been there many many times they have the knowledge
Kind regards
