The font is in the LGR encoding. The input of greek text is described
here:

ftp://ftp.dante.de/pub/tex/language/greek/doc/usage.pdf

Since LGR uses ligatures for the accented characters, there might be
problems with the hyphenation if using plain ascii. I use mostly emacs
with greek babel input translation and LaTeX with the utf8x inputenc.
At least

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[greek]{babel}
\usepackage{gfsporson}
\begin{document}
\^o
\end{document}

gives me a omega with a circumflex.

best regards,
