I heard that the Rambam in his commentary to the Mishna mentioned cases where the custom of the place was different, one such place being יָוָן, where men didn't cover their heads with their tallitot, does anyone know where exactly this is mentioned or of any other sources talking of the same thing?

I found this blog that had a post of an article about R' Akiva Eiger's shul where no one wore their talis on their head. http://onthemainline.blogspot.com/2012/11/on-minhag-not-to-wear-tallis-over-head.html
