1. Remove the spaces from the key-val entries

2. Don't mix key-val entries with arguments

3. Load hyphenation patterns for greek (you can add them to spain 
because there is no overlap).

The following example works on my system but I suggest to add a math 
font (itemize uses math symbols as fallback).

   [mainface] [rm] [New Athena Unicode]

\definefontfamily [mainface] [rm] [TeX Gyre Pagella]

\definefontfamily [mainface] [ss] [TeX Gyre Heros] [scale=0.75]

\setuplanguage [es] [patterns={es,gr}]

\setupbodyfont [mainface]
