Thanks but that doesn't help, one is shortcut for the other. From the manual, p. 4:

"Some options are convenient shortcuts for loading languages with specific options:
‣ monogreek = greek with option ‘variant=monotonic’ (or ‘mono’)
‣ polygreek = greek with option ‘variant=polytonic’ (or ‘poly’)
‣ ancientgreek = greek with option ‘variant=ancient’

Kind regards

The posting you mentioned doesn't load "ancientgreek" but greek with
variant ancient, so try:
