Ancient Greek words for things unknown to ancient Greece?

I don't think this needs a special area. Here or on the composition forum would both be great places for such a discussion. The AKWN site you list is always my first visit when worrying about modern vocabulary. It might be nice to subject his list to unicodification at some point.
