In a notice released Monday, Greece's Public Debt Management Agency named banks in charge of managing the auction. PDMA announcements are typically made on the eve of the auction.

Greece is expected to set a 2.5 billion-euro ($2.8 billion) target for its latest bond issue, completing market borrowing needs for 2019 and following successful 5-year and 10-year bond auctions earlier this year.

Low yields in eurozone countries have helped Greece raise money on bond markets after three successive international bailout programs.
