I am getting some puzzling errors when I try to use the Greek fonts  
in math formulae (to represent Greek numerals as written in mss.)

In a short file, both
\overbar{\grk{kj}} and
work as expected, even when they occur in Greek text.

But in a long, complicated file with lots of Greek etc. and  the same  
environment file, I get

! Math formula deleted: Insufficient symbol fonts.

I am note really sure what this error message means or how to deal  
with it. Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

I am running the latest ConTeXT on the latest teTeX distribution.

Best, Alan
