Repost the question in the Calibre forum, if that's what you're using, Fermthe, and I'm sure that you will get a reply.

With a PDF file, you need to embed a Greek font.

The same is true if you are using Book Designer.
HarryT uploaded some Ionic Greek here:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12166
made in the days when he owned a Sony PRS500. He used Book Designer and embedded a Greek font.

I'm not sure how far Calibre supports font embedding, so suggest that you ask in that forum.

Well, I'm not the OP, BUT thanks a lot Patricia!
Though fonts are not perfect, really impressed to see that there are samples in ancient greek uploaded in MR! Congrats to HarryT too.
However, modern Greek is monotonic (uses a single accent).

Which should make things easier, I hope, Kostas.
