Maxis only provided translations of the game into 18 languages, and unfortunately Greek is not among those.
If somebody would translate all LTEXT file within SimCityLocale.dat into Greek, it would be possible though.

However, that would probably be too big a task for one person, with 5,962 LTEXT files... $%Grinno$%

a greek translation may only be possible if Maxis included greek letters into their embedded fonts. Nobody ever tested this.

But there are some inofficial translations, including catalan and turkish, but no language with non-latin letters.

You can edit the ingame fonts.ini file and set the game to use any TTF font, e.g. one having the full Unicode setup.

This post indicates that the game has been translated to Russian at least:
