The Metropolis of Attica is under the jurisdiction of the Church of Greece. In 2010, the metropolis was divided into three metropolises of which the Metropolis of Attica retained five of the original eleven Metropolitan Regions.

Metropolitan of Attica

The throne of this metropolis has been vacant since 2005, when the former Metropolitan Panteleimon was [deposition|deposed]] by the Synod amid charges of financial and sexual scandal.[1] Metropolitan Ierotheos of Limnos has since been reported to be interested in seeking a transfer to Attica.citation needed
