The Old Testament altar was for the purpose of blood sacrifices. The New Testament altar is symbolic since Christ sacrificed his life and no more sacrifices are needed.

However, there is a Greek translation of the Old Testament called the Septuagint (LXX), so this may be what someone is referring to by "Greek Testament."
