The learning curve during the first few months is considerable (grammar, vocabulary) and you'll learn a language more thoroughly if you can devote your time to it alone. Once you have the basics down, do as you wish.
If you're wondering which language to learn first, pick the one you're most interested in. I think most people would probably consider Greek somewhat more difficult (there are a variety of reasons for this), but motivation is a huge factor for learning, so if you really have your heart set on Greek, by all means start with that.

Is it true that Latin has much fewer irregular verbs and that the grammar is more logical than Greek?
