Narrow, discontinuous bands of high-grade subophiolitic metamorphic rocks, comprising predominantly amphibolite facies metabasites with rare metasediments, are observed at the contact between the complexes and subjacent mélanges of the Mesohellenic Ophiolite exposed in northwestern Greece.

Both conventional and pseudosection thermobarometry have been used to yield estimated peak pressure-temperature (P-T) conditions of these tectonic sheets. Toward the leading edge of the ophiolite, subophiolitic rocks of the Vourinos Complex record peak metamorphic temperatures of 770 ± 100 °C. Pressures of 4 ± 1 kbar beneath the Vourinos are estimated on the basis of hornblende composition and are similar to the expected pressures...
