It could be a couple of things:

1) The characters in the cell do not have corresponding glyphs
in the ISO8859-7 encoded font.

2) The ISO8859-7 font is avaiable only as a bitmap (.pcf or .bdf)
and you have set the font size to a value that is far above the
highest available point size.  The X server will attempt to
scale bitmaps to a certain point, but if you pick a size too
large, the glyphs will be invisble.

What does the underlying expression look like for one of the
underlying cells?  You can copy the underlying expression to
the clipboard using

	Edit -> Copy As -> Cell Expression
