Thanks for your assistance,
I actually managed to solve my problem in a wholly different way.
In truth, my ultimate goal was to typeset a document in LaTeX that

directives (copied below, in case someone else is interested)
in the preamble as suggested by Apostolos Syropoulos

% ...
\usepackage[greek,american]{babel}
\usepackage{times}
\def\textgreek#1{{\fontencoding{LGR}\fontfamily{cmr}\selectfont
\def\encodingdefault{LGR}#1}}
% ...
