Sphinx's Revenge is

week you will be presented with 3 puzzles. For each puzzle, your task is
to figure out what GREEK
word is being depicted by combining the sounds made by the ENGLISH
words depicted in the puzzle. The answer to the puzzle, though, will
require you to take that GREEK
word and translate it into ENGLISH.
To help you in your task, we provide up to three hints per puzzle, with each
hint reducing the total possible points you can receive for a correct guess. For example:
SKI + LOW = "SKEELO". The English word for SKYLO is DOG, and that's what you put in the answer box-- DOG.
Each puzzle is worth 100 points. There is no penalty for guessing,
however, points will be deducted for each hint that you ask to be revealed.
