tlmgr show --list | grep greek

shows nothing for me

If you mean that polyglossia does not directly provide support, which
package should I be using instead?

I know I can specify the ancientgreek, but then I do not understand
the point about \begin{greek}[variant=ancient]

Should I do that only in the paragraphs with AG characters? If I do
that with polyglossia, I get

! LaTeX Error: Environment greek undefined.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.6878 \begin{greek}
