The large-cap FTSE/ATHEX 25 expanded 0.20 percent to end at 425.05 points, but small-caps had a field day, adding 2.94 percent and demonstrating the extent of interest the local bourse commands across its board these days.

Folli Follie grabbed the spotlight among blue chips with a 5.47 percent rise, ahead of Piraeus Bank (up 4.76 percent) and Alpha Bank (3.95 percent). OPAP declined by 2.42 percent.
