Well yes. Do you really want to argue that a relevant proportion under discussion at London wasowed to greece?

Germany received massive stimulus funds?

Just like anybody else, including Greece and proportionally the least.

Greece received was funding for the war against the Communists that lasted until 1949. Literally nothing for industry or anything else.

Greece did get:

1948/1949: 176

1949/1950: 156

1951: 45 million $

from the Marshall plan. That is not nothing.

You're evading Upstate NY's point that Greece in the postwar years was a theatre for the "Allies" against Communism in a quite different way from West Germany. While West Germany was the poster child, Greece was literally a battleground.
