NOTE: You will need to install the Greek font "Galilee" in order for this page to display properly. I'm intending to convert this page to the same "bwgrkl" font I use elsewhere on this website, but it might be awhile. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm also sorry if you see extra blank spaces in the middle of the words. I'll try to fix that too, later.
