On page 294 of the underlying text, on the 2nd to last paragraph on the page, there is a word in Greek I haven't the faintest clue how to understand or pronounce. It is likely a reference to a Germanic group, so the pronunciation may be a jump ball even if one can read the Greek.

Can anyone help and perhaps write out a pronunciation in the most simple American English for me??

Thanks, CJB

Transliterated, it's "Saksones" i.e. Saxons. That may help you determine a pronunciation. ;)
