This is looking very similar to the one I found on wikipedia, if it is, it is an introduced species as it sometimes escape captivity because they are commonly kept as pets and can survive in greeces enviroment, but don't take my word for it, would be nice if you could get a close up picture and measure it if you can or at least give an estimation of its size
