Greek Dish

A dish with Ancient Greek on it.

Stethi, O harma diaboles!

Annabeth, saying "Stop, Chariot of Damnation!" in Ancient Greek, during The Sea of Monsters

Ancient Greek is the language that was spoken by the Ancient Greeks during the age of Ancient Greece. It is also the language of Greek demigods. Dyslexia is common among Greek demigods because their brains are "hard-wired" for Ancient Greek, whereas Roman Demigods understand Latin, as opposed to Ancient Greek. Ancient Greek can be broken into four main dialects and many sub-dialects.

Ancient Greek is slightly different to Modern Greek.

  • You only use "℩" where sound shifts from /i/ to /j/ if it's not the case you would use "ι".
  • You only use "ς" at the end of a word. If it's in the middle of a word, you would use "σ".


  • "Μήνιν άειδε θεά, Πηλειάδεω Αχηλήος ουλομένην, ή μυρί' Αχαιοίς άλγε' έθηκε." which means: "O, Muse, sing of Achilles' great wrath, that brought unnumbered woes upon the Greeks."
