To Xamanator: No... The answer is ΕΙΡΗΝΑΙΟΣ / Ειρηναίος (Nice name, btw. It's stem is ειρην-. Ειρήνη means peace). The reason why it's not ΕΙΡΕΝΑΙΟΣ is that in ancient times the H symbol used to be a long E. But spelling is spelling. (Modern Greek characters resemble the Ancient Greek characters. If you want to give an ancient style, try to make letters seem more "triangular", e.g. write O as a rhombus, Ρ (greek R) as a triangular flag etc).

Cristen Originally Answered: What role/influence did greek gods have in Ancient Greek theatre?
The gods just like everyday humans and the heros of old were parts of the play. The gods specifically were used for a thing called (in greek) ἀπὸ μηχανῆς Θεός or in modern day theater Deus ex machina (latin) that means tranlated literally "god out of the machine". This is a plot device whereby a seemingly inextricable problem is suddenly and abruptly solved with the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new character, ability, or object. (modern day definition) In ancient greek theater it often ended in all chaos and then a God came (an actor who flew with the help of a theater machine) and resolved everthing. So that the play could find a good end.

There are lots of misconceptions in regards to the Greek gods! Brother-Sister marriages are customary in all polytheistic pantheons of gods. Most commonly on the grounds that the story of construction starts with two gods who produce more, who then marry every different. On account that the gods sit on the prime of the genealogical triangle, brother-sister marriages were the norm. Individuals did worship them as gods of morality, and so they guided every side of every day existence within the old world. Nevertheless, the gathering of myths we have now at present is a blend of studies from 1000s of exceptional kingdoms and a interval of over one thousand years. The normal Greek within the historic world had a smaller assortment, so the quantity of romantic encounters for gods like Zeus used to be a lot smaller. However there have been massive cultural differences. E.G. The role and rights of ladies, who have been viewed as property. Additionally when the gods without problems signify forces of nature they are morally neutral. E.G. Apollo as the god of plague killing plenty of people will not be an evil god, just a traditional drive.

This is an easy one. If you want capitals, EIPENAIO- and the final character is that zigzag like a reversed Z or spiky S with an extra bottom stroke.

There is no "F" in Greek, so that would by a "ph" - Φ φ - for that sound. Most modern words deriving from the "phi" are still spelled with a ph. Or when mixed with languages like old English, you got words like "fear", that came from "phobos", but not that often. One most commonly used new word is "Farma", from "Pharma" referring to the pharmaceutical industry (not usually in a good way). "K" or "kappa" begins words like - καλός, which means "beautiful". These, too, were usually transferred to the letter "Hard C", as in Callistos, Calligraphy (beautiful writing). Other examples of the Kappa to C transformation are "Calisthenics" or "Cacophany" from "κακός" (bad), meaning "bad sound", as in music, sometimes. For "N", you have words like "ναυτικός" ("Nautikos" - referring to sailing or the sea), which gives you english words such as "nautical", "nautilus", "astronaut" (combining "Star" with "sail"), and even "nausea"! The "o" word "οἷκος" or "house" was transformed into "eco-" as a prefix, to give words such as "ecology" and "economics. The OTHER "O" was "Ω" or "omega", which was usually kept as an "o" sound. The exception was when it transformed in to an "h" sound over the millennia -- ὥρα -- or "'ora" (hour). Words like horoscope came from this version. There was no "U" in Greek, but the sound was made with "ou" or οὐ, a prefix meaning "not". This gives words such as "utopia", meaning "no" with "place ("topos" for place). Hope this helped. My Ancient Greek (1 semester) is rusty, but kudos for you for studying it! I just got The Iliad in the original Greek--that should occupy me for the next 10 yrs. (same time as the war lasted, I think).
