Geocache Description:


PEDESI (PEDERSÖRE) ABC

Den person som först hittar cachen ombeds att göra nästa gömma med någon anknytning till alfabets nästa bokstav inom två veckor inom Pedersöre kommuns gränser.
Om FTF-letaren inte vill göra det kan man meddela det i loggen till STF-letaren. Det viktiga är att alfabetskedjan inte stannar.
Den nya cachen kan vara tradi-, multi- eller mysteriegömma.

Tämän kätkön ensimmäiseksi löytävän toivotaan tekevän seuraavaan aakkosten kirjaimeen liittyvän kätkön noin kahden viikon kuluessa Pedersören kunnassa.
Jos FTF:n löytäjä ei halua tehdä sitä, hän voi kirjoittaa sen logiin STF:lle. Tärkeintä on että aakkosketju ei pysähdy.
Uusi kätkö voi olla tradi-, multi- tai mysteerikätkö.

The person who first finds this cache is humbly asked to make the next cache that is somehow connected to the next letter in the alphabet within two weeks in Pedersöre.
If the FTF don't want to do it, the cacher can write it in the log to the STF. It is important that the alphabet chain don't stop.
The new cache can be a traditional, multi or mystery.

G = GRΣΣK

The Greek alphabet has been used to write the Greek language since the 8th century BC. It was derived from the earlier Phoenician alphabet, and was the first alphabetic script to have distinct letters for vowels as well as consonants. It is the ancestor of the Latin and Cyrillic scripts. Apart from its use in writing the Greek language, in both its ancient and its modern forms, the Greek alphabet today also serves as a source of technical symbols and labels in many domains of mathematics, science and other fields.

In its classical and modern forms, the alphabet has 24 letters, ordered from alpha to omega. Like Latin and Cyrillic, Greek originally had only a single form of each letter; it developed the letter case distinction between upper-case and lower-case forms in parallel with Latin during the modern era.

It is okay to get angry over the use of sigma (Σ) as E in the heading when its equivalent is S. I only used sigma because I think it’s a nice letter and it fit in nicely. My favourite Greek letter is lambda (Λ, λ), what is yours? The mystery itself you will find after the alphabet key. Good luck with finding the coordinates!

Greek Alphabet
Note that stigma, koppa and sampi are part of the old alphabet and not part of the modern Greek alphabet. They vanished early from the alphabet together with digamma and san. Other forgotten Greek letters are heta, which basically is the same as eta, and sjo whose whereabouts is unknown.
