On 22 October 2011, the great archimandrite of the Ecumenical Throne, Athenagoros celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Patriarchal Church of St. George the Victorious in the Phanar to mark the 20th anniversary of the election and enthronement of Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople...

Any idea why they did not serve?

It would be more unusual if they did serve.

who in particular are you asking about? 

also, at the patriarchate it is routine that only 1 priest will serve, with at least 1 deacon (usually 2, and up to 4).  They do this out of a sense of simplicity, they like it when it's simple.  When I was there, there was not 1 co-celebration & there were like 3 feast days, including the Patriarch's name day.  Each time, only 1 priest served, the patriarch was at the throne, and at least 2 deacons served each time.  That's just the way they do it. 
I got nothing.

Bishops from his communion?

In viewing the online pictures, http://www.acrod.org/multimedia/photos?setID=72157627966580940 and http://www.flickr.com/photos/patriarchate/6280875953/in/photostream ,  you will see that Serb's analysis appears to be accurate.

I suspect that all of the Orthodox hierarchs recognized as being part of 'canonical' Orthodoxy by the Ecumenical Patriarch communed, but it would have been outside of Greek practice for a large scale 'concelebration' as one might see in the Slavic traditions to have taken place. I read somewhere online that Archbishop Athenagoras of the Patriarchal Synod was the celebrant of the Liturgy.I don't think there is any affront committed or intended.

The MP's online letter is here: http://www.mospat.ru/en/2011/10/24/news50266/  Archbishop Yustinian, Administrator of the Patriarchal Parishes in the United States, represented the MP. http://www.patriarchia.ru/db/text/1654318.html

Many years! to His All Holiness!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Yes, but I wonder whether arimethea meant the same.
