Historical study of Greek as part of Jewish education?

Bartenura on the first mishna of Pesachim describes the barrels that need to be checked in a wine cellar as being shaped like a Greek gamma. Was Greek (at least the alphabet) commonly known by Torah scholars of the past millennium? I don’t mean the Greek words that entered Hebrew already by the Mishna’s time, but actually learning to read Greek.
