Ok. I want to get a tattoo of the ancient greek proverb "KNOW THYSELF" BUT- I cannot figure out a few things. Such as. Do I get it in modern Greek? or Ancient Greek? Or whatever Greek?
Also, here is a link for your ...thinking of this topic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know_thyself
Question: See the picture of the window on the right. See the inscription in Greek KNOW THYSELF. then see how it is written at the beginning γνῶθι σεαυτόν . what is the difference? Is it that the one on the window is in capitol letters and the one written γνῶθι σεαυτόν is in lowercase ???
I want my tatto to be authentic. As it says on wikipiedia: KNOW THYSELF was inscribed in the pronaos (forecourt) of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. If I get it kn modern Greek, will it be different from when it was originally written??? If so, then doesnt make sense to get it in English?
Sorry about all my questions. If anyone can answer who has knowledge, it would be helpful and appreciated.
