Areopagus

Postby MDS » Wed Sep 17, 2003 2:09 am

I have no idea how to speak or pronounce ancient Greek (its on the list of things to do) and was wondering if someone could tell me the phonetical (or as close as I can get) English pronounciation of areopagus -> I know it was an Athenian council consisting of mostly ex-arkhontes<br /><br />Thanks!

If you don't mind sounding like an American, one of the standard English pronunciations can be heard here:<br /><br />http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=Areopagus
