Because traditional Greece is oriental, kind of.
Although Greece can be said to be the origin of Western culture, at the same time Greece is in a little bit different category from Western Europe and the rest of Eastern Europe. Greece had a very dominant culture so never fully fell under the sway of Roman culture.
Back in the 1900s, the "Oriental" usually referred to Turkey or Persia, sometimes the northern Levant countries like Syria and Lebanon, maybe the muslim countries in Central Asia. Although Chinese and even Japanese things (and people) might be referred to as Oriental for those who had very little familiarity with China and exotic Eastern culture and origins as more of a broad category. However, "oriental people" usually refers more to East Asian people like China.
