Explanation:
I'm not sure I understand what you mean. There is no ancient Greek symbol for @!!! Didn't have e-mail back then ;) If you mean what is the ancient Greek symbol for a normal "a", then it is the same as in modern Greek: α

Προς


Explanation:
Προς=@
This symbol means the same as in English. For example:
5 apples @ $1 each. (5 apples at $1 each)

It is used in all e-mail addresses because it is easier than using a whole
word, I suppose.
It is also used in commerce in English/Greek alike.
