Need translation help with hand-written Ancient Greek

Postby gfhauser » Wed Jun 11, 2014 1:56 pm

I have a hand-written document from 1891 with a phrase in Ancient Greek. It is written in all capitals, with diacritical marks I am unable to type. As best I can type it, it looks like this:

Ἡ ΔίΚΗ ΧΕΙΡΟΙ ΤΗΣ ˒AΔΙΚΙΗΣ except the iota at the end of the third word and the eta in the fourth word both have a mark over them that looks like a sideways parenthesis.

Can anyone help? Thanks!
