    Default Words of the Greek origin

    Could you tell me please where can I find transcriptions of the words like"Kirke" or "Circe", "Helios", "Perseis", "Okeanos".

    Am I right when I say "transcriptions of the words", Or should I say "for the words" and if I ask you about these words "Are they pronounced just as/like they are written", or "You read them" will this question be correct?
    Thank you.

    I'm not sure what you want They are transcriptions. If you're looking for a Greek character set, Lucida Sans Unicode should provide everything you need.
