This is already more Greek-sounding than probably any professional reader I've heard in an English-language audiobook, but if you want to go for even more accuracy (not required!) I'm hearing "oh-roh-MAY-on" instead of "roh-MAY-on". Great job!

Thank you, Michael -- very kind. Here's my second attempt: Greek sentence. Any better?

My last section is also the last section of the book. Is it sufficent to just say at the end "end of the [book title]' or do I have to preceed it with the "end of chapter,..."?

At the end of the section, say:
"End of section [number]"

At the end of the book, say (in addition):
"End of The Cambridge Modern History. Volume 1, The Renaissance."
So precede with "end of chapter."

Volume is also too low at 84 dB. Not sure how I missed this, sorry.
