I have a problem using a command "\greek" in section.

Here is an example of using the command \greek in normal text, which works fine.

\documentclass[polutonikogreek, oneside,11pt]{CUEDthesisPSnPDF}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenx}
\newcommand{\greek}[1]{{\selectlanguage{polutonikogreek}#1}}

\begin{document}
%\section{\protect\greek{Πρωταγόρας}}
    Protagoras (\greek{Πρωταγόρας}) says that 
    ``Man is the measure of all things'' (\greek{Ἄνθρωπος μέτρον}), 
    meaning that there is no objective truth. 
    One opinion can be better than another, 
    but it cannot be \emph{truer}.
\end{document}

However, if I try to use the command \greek in section, errors show. The message says "Argument of \@sect has an extra }. \section{\protect\greek{Πρωταγόρας}}".

Uncomment the line "%\section{\protect\greek{Πρωταγόρας}}" for example. I have tried to use \protect, but it didn't help.

Any idea please?

Below is the source code of the class file "CUEDthesisPSnPDF" (I think it might be something to do with it).

    Don't use utf8x, but utf8; and do \DeclareRobustCommand{\greek}[1]{\foreignlanguage{polutonikogreek}{#1}}

This should work with a fairly recent TeX distribution:

\documentclass[polutonikogreek,oneside,11pt]{CUEDthesisPSnPDF}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenx}

\DeclareRobustCommand{\greek}[1]{%
  \foreignlanguage{polutonikogreek}{#1}%
}

\begin{document}

\section{\greek{Πρωταγόρας}}

Protagoras (\greek{Πρωταγόρας}) says that
`Man is the measure of all things'' (\greek{Ἄνθρωπος μέτρον}),
 meaning that there is no objective truth.
One opinion can be better than another,
but it cannot be \emph{truer}.

\end{document}

Avoid utf8x.
