You can't split a string over multiple lines. A quoted string literal must be all on one line. Try this:
Tbox=annotation('textbox', 'Position', [.13,.39,.17,.085],'String','\alpha \beta \gamma \Gamma \delta \Delta \epsilon \zeta \eta \theta \Theta \iota \kappa \lambda \Lambda \mu \nu \xi \pi \Pi \rho \sigma \Sigma \tau \upsilon \Upsilon \phi \Phi \chi \psi \Psi \omega \Omega',...
'BackgroundColor',[.5,.5,1])

Using for example
Tbox=annotation('textbox', 'Position', [.13,.39,.17,.085],...
'String',...
'$$\alpha \beta \gamma \Gamma $$',...
,'interpreter','latex')
and doing this in several Tbox annotations gives desired results. Thanks!
