Explanation:
This name is found all over the Hebrew Bible and therefore in all the Greek translations also written during ancient times, such as the one we now call the Septuagint, authored mostly between 250 B.C. and 100 B.C.

The English transcription of the Greek name is Tyros; the Greek letters are tau-upsilon-rho-omicron-sigma.

Remember that Greek was written with a different alphabet, so what you see here is a "transcription", which renders each ancient Greek letter with an approximate (rather than exact) equivalent English letter.
