Yes, this is definitely wrong. The tilde produces the tilde-accent
with the politonikogreek.

Sorry, I'm not much familiar with greek, but as I see, there is no
character in the font with a circumflex in it. There is even no
circumflex in the LGR encoding. And v is not in the translantion
table.

Do you actually want the unicode character 1F67: "GREEK SMALL LETTER
OMEGA WITH DASIA AND PERISPOMENI"? This is \char'301 in the LGR encoding
and it's ascii input is <~w:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[LGR]{fontenc}
\usepackage[polutonikogreek]{babel}
\usepackage{gfsporson}
\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{porson}
\begin{document}
<~w \char'301
\end{document}

best regards,
