Could it just be that the normal Greek (printed) gamma is too easily
mistaken for a "y"?
Just to clarify a couple of points (I am no expert, but have lived in
Greece): the IPA symbol seems to me a reasonable representation of a
modern handwritten gamma; and also, this is indeed pronounced in
modern Greek as a voiced velar fricative (except before front vowels).
