Cool! Incidentally, I can still remember learning the frequency table for
English when I was in middle school: 

	e t a o n r i s h d l f c m u g w p w b v k x j q z

This can be compared with your sequence to see which sounds have fairly
different rates of occurance in Greek:

	a e o i n s t u h k r p w m l d g q x f b c z y

For instance, "t" is a lot more frequent in English than in Greek.
