Why is it difficult to provide a minimal example? I have this:

\definepapersize [test] [width=5.7in,height=4in]

\setuppapersize [test] [test]

\mainlanguage [agr]

\definefontfamily [test] [serif] [Free Serif]

\setupbodyfont [test,12pt]


\strut \hskip1em Ἀπόλλωνα ἰητρὸν καὶ Ἀσκληπιὸν, καὶ Ὑγείαν καὶ Πανάκειαν
καὶ θεοὺς πάντας τε καὶ πάσας, ἵστορας ποιεύμενος, ἐπιτελέα ποιήσειν κατὰ
δύναμιν καὶ κρίσιν ἐμὴν ὅρκον τόνδε καὶ συγγραφὴν τήνδε· ἡγήσεσθαι μὲν τὸν
διδάξαντά με τὴν τέχνην ταύτην ἴσα γενέτῃσιν ἐμοῖσι, καὶ βίου κοινώσεσθαι


Which gives me the attached output - with the expected hyphenation. So this is not a bug, but something is wrong in your document. And we won’t be able to say what unless you provide a minimal example.
