 Some fonts change not only the text font, but also the math font. This is the case with mathptmx. It is possible to grab a single symbol from another font though:\documentclass{article} \usepackage{mathptmx} \DeclareSymbolFont{newfont}{OML}{cmm}{m}{it}% Computer Modern math font \DeclareMathSymbol{\Epsilon}{3}{newfont}{15}% Symbol 15 \DeclareMathSymbol{\Varrho}{3}{newfont}{37}% Symbol 37 \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{ll} $\Epsilon$ & epsilon \\ $\varepsilon$ & varepsilon \\ $\rho$ & rho \\ $\Varrho$ & varrho \end{tabular} \end{document}If you want to find out where symbols reside within the font, see How do I know what symbols/characters are available in a font package?.
