Greek word spelling

Hi

I have the font but I am afraid I shall not write this word properly (see screenshot). Could some kind soul write it for me so that I could shamelessly copy-paste it?

It probably means something like City.

Here you go: Πόλις

And yes, it means city, urbs is the same in Latin.

The problem with that list is that all the accented characters from the Extended Greek unicode register are missing - and you can't really do much without them.

I'm a happy user of BabelMap.

I use BbleMap and BablePad as well.

IMHO, it's often easier to use Beta Code converters.

For example:

Greek Beta Code Converter

Beta Code to Unicode converter (German website with a couple of example phrases)

Users familiar with Greek can also use online keyboards.

For example:
Ancient Greek Keyboard Online LEXILOGOS

Every time Greek gets brought up, I always go back to the same resources (see Post #8):

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=321434

Also, read the thread above + the linked ones... there's lots of good Greek info in there (and also proper ways to code it in your ebooks using lang + xml:lang).

PS. You've even posted in many of those threads. Shame on you!
