Many Bible commentators cogitate that the ''prince of Greece'' here refers to Alexander the Great, who conquered Persia, and so John Calvin, known as the ''prince of expositors'', is of the same of opinion. But this is less likely. This prince was an angelic adversary, representing Greece.

I hope this was somehow satisfactory, but I believe there are more people that can give a better answer.
