More foe furren

Following yesterday's "Foe furren" post and its updates, I saw the following today:

It's not the same (Metrolox) font. It uses the same capital Sigma for an "E", but replaces "U" with V and "I" with capital Phi, neither of which Metrolox does.

Despite the V/U replacement (which suggests Latin) the obvious intent is to look Greek ... despite the reference to Turkey ... both my Greek and Turkish friends will be equally horrified...

There is, of course, a lot of overlap in archaeological terms; many of the Greek islands are, though under Greek soverignty, logically Turkish in geography.
