Here is my best explanation:

'depression in greece' is the definition.
(the Vale of Tempe is a gorge in Greece)

'run away from anger' is the wordplay.
'run' becomes 'r' (cricket abbreviation).
'away from' is a deletion indicator.
'anger' becomes 'temper' (I've seen this before).
'temper' with 'r' removed is 'TEMPE'.

'and' acts as a link.
