  1. Funny, but it is not greek. Not in pronunciation, not in rythm, not in meaning, not in "music vibration"… Those were essential in greek language. Nice try, but remove the "reconstructed ancient pronunciation" title… At least try it with a greek actor that has experience of greek texts…

  2. Your pronounciation skills are completely wrong. Hell, it's horrible sorry it's tragically horrible. However taught you this pronounciation deceived and made fun of you and must be beaten up like a cushion doll for example. This word you meantioned by the way CAN exist, but it doesn't exist. It's like suggesting a word like ''Subjectism'' instead of ''Mathematics''.

  3. Μπορείτε να μου στείλετε τον σύνδεσμο σε μήνυμα ή σε ότι σας βολεύει ;;; Ή να προστεθεί στα σχόλια κάτω απο το ίδιο το βιντεάκι.
