What do you mean with "2 for Greek unless you count Ancient Greek 
together with modern Greek"?
Definitely Ancient Greek and modern Greek  are two different things for 
both hyphenation and lexicon.
May be modern monotoniko and modern polutoniko may be merged in one for 
what concerns hyphenation, because the lexicon is the same and the rules 
for hyphenating are the same; just the use of diacritical signs is 
different. I'd say that monotoniko hyphenation is a subset of 
polutoniko; but only Apostolos can confirm this statement.
for Greek there is another complication; for 8-bit aware typesetting 
engines the hyphenation patterns are different; at the moment they are 
saved in a directory different from hyph-utf8 and i do not see any means 
for getting rid of them and of the  8-bit LGR encoding.
