Subject: Help with mysterious language
Question: Hello. I was looking for linguistic specialist and came across this site. I'm writing this because I need help with a letter I found (please see links). I'm trying to find out the language this letter was written in. After a lot of internet research I couldn't find an answer. This letter looks really old so maybe it has some historical value. I hope you will find some time to take a look at it. Thank you very much. http://s24.postimg.org/8pzj0m9rp/letter1.jpg http://s24.postimg.org/w2xkj4pv9/letter2.jpg
Reply: Just wanted to add that Greek was my best guess as well. Other than that, I have no other insights. Good luck.
