In 2018 Greece made it mandatory that foreigners renting cars have the International Driver's Permit. (EU citizens of the European Union can use their own licenses for driving in Greece). It is not the same as an international license and is basically just a translation and photo ID of whatever license you normally use. Whether or not you will be asked for it I can't tell you but tourists and car rental agencies have been fined. An international driving permit (IDP) allows you to drive legally in Greece and 174 countries and must be accompanied by your valid driver's license. Only two organizations in the US issue IDPs: Automobile Association of America (AAA) and American Automobile Touring Alliance (AATA) and you can order it online if there is not an office nearby.
