According to otfinfo, greek small capitals are supported in Minion Pro.

otfinfo --script=grek -f MinionPro-Regular.otf

...
smcp    Small Capitals
...

yet the following MWE

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Minion Pro}

\begin{document}
\textsc{Small Capitals}

\textsc{Πεζοκεφαλαία}
\end{document}

results in:

What option should I pass to fontspec in order to have small capitals with Minion Pro for greek Glyphs?

I found a reference which suggested that Minion Pro has no greek small caps. –  Ulrike Fischer May 12 '11 at 18:12
    
@Ulrike Thank you. Can you give a link or something? According to otfinfo there must be small caps. Also on libre office there are small caps, but I don't know if they are real or not. –  pmav99 May 12 '11 at 18:14

I simply ran a google search with "Minion pro greek small caps" and got some hits which suggested that there is a problem but nothing so decisive that I would absolutly rely on it. I also tried to activate the small caps with lowlevel commands and it didn't work so I don't think that fontspec is the problem. Try to find another font for comparision. –  Ulrike Fischer May 13 '11 at 7:53

@Ulrike Ι checked with fontforge and I didn't find anything related with greek small caps... Propably you are right and the greek small caps are not implemented. –  pmav99 May 14 '11 at 20:10
    
It seems so... I tried to \addfontfeature{Script=Greek, Letters=SmallCaps} too and the result is the same –  henrique Jul 1 '11 at 0:01

I think that the appropriate glyphs are not available. Using the MyFonts site for Minion Pro it is possible to do a 'live test' with text of your choice and picking small caps: enter image description here.

As you can see, the result is identical to the TeX result - no small caps.
