[B-Greek] Epistemological question.

How do we know how Biblical Greek sounded? Or Biblical Hebrew? Or Latin?
What methodology is used to determine how such languages were spoken?
Hebrew and Greek exist in modern forms and are very much alive
languages but Latin is used only for specialized purposes. Is it all
just educated guesswork? Too bad the phonograph wasn't invented a few
thousand years ago. :-)
