You are very polite Sarah.
Allow me to give more info about "κ.ο.κ."
The modern Greek expression "Και ούτω καθ' εξής" means "And in (the same) manner (the list) is continued".
ἑξῆς < έχομαι = keep, follow, continue (a line of things, persons, ideas e.t.c.). Έχομαι των παραδόσεων = I keep the traditions
Other modern Greek expressions with the ancient word "εξής":
Στο εξής (εις το εξής): From now on (=what will follow from now on is...)
Τα/τους/τις εξής (adverbial use): The following list of
Ως εξής: According to the following (description, list of characteristics)
Of course, I will not bother you more with modern Greek.

Thanks -- I learned something new! And how appropriate that it should be a GREEK acronym!
