Here is my best explanation:

'rebellion' is the definition.
(mutiny is a kind of rebellion)

'greek character leading insignificant' is the wordplay.
'greek character' becomes 'mu' (letter from the Greek alphabet).
'leading' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'insignificant' becomes 'tiny' (I've seen this before).
'mu'+'tiny'='MUTINY'
