I would like to thank the many people who have responded to my question
regarding the transliteration of the word Zion. In the listing Gesenius
gives for Greek transliteration problems (sorry I don't have paragraph
citation with me at the moment) I did not see the Y listed as a problem but
that does seem to be the case here.

Let me now ask about the "n" of Solomon. Where does that come from? I
understand that the SH became S because Greek does not have an SH sound but
where does the added N come from?

Thanks again for any replies,
Al Silberman
