English to Greek (Ancient) translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: Light
Light, as in lighting up a dark room.

As a candle would light up a dark room.
Charissa
Greek (Ancient) translation:phos.
Explanation:
The transcription is "phos" or "pho^s" -- or sometimes even "phws".

The names of the three Greek letters are: phi, omega, sigma.

There are several grammatical forms of this word, in addition to PHWS. Its plural is PHWTA. The phrase "of light" would be simply one word, PHWTOS. There are additional forms, too.
