Are you sure that that is the UNIcode code point of the numeral sign? To 
me it appaears as an apostrophe. In any case is a strange situations. 
Examine the hyphenation files for ancient greek; thay are prepared by 
Apostolos Syropoulos, who is very knowledeable in this matter.

I am not even responsible for the LGR 8-bit greek fonts, even if I did a 
lot of work on those particular hyphen files; I know that in the LGR 
encoding the upper and the lower number sings are not treated as letters.
