If you have a chance of using a Unix/Linux system with X Windows, then

and you will have all Greek Extended glyphs (and all other CEN MES-3
characters) available in numerous font sizes in your usual terminal
emulator window. Advantage over the Windows solution: in contrast to say
Arial MS Unicode, the Greek glyphs in the above font were designed by
someone actually familiar with the Greek script. Disadvantage: these
free pixel fonts are only good for on-screen display and editing, not
for high-res laser printer output.
