Currently, the policy only allows Wikisource wikis in ancient or extinct languages. The decision on this request will affect that policy accordingly.
Whenever possible, I think ancient languages should be projects on their direct descendant language's wiki — on the Greek Wikiquote in this case. This ensures greater exposure, participation, and organization of the content as a whole. This is particularly true for the Greek Wikiquote, which Zacharias tells me is virtually inactive.
However, Zacharias says that this is not feasible because of the disapproval of a temporary sysop on that wiki, and the poor quality of ancient Greek content on the Greek Wikiquote. These issues could be corrected by replacing the temporary sysop, and with more attention from the ancient Greek community on the Greek Wikiquote.
I'm not opposed to approving Wikiquote wikis in ancient or extinct languages, but I'd like to see more discussion before deciding whether or not ancient Greek needs its own wiki separate from Greek.
