Questions in Ancient Greek

This may seem a strange request but I am an artist and need some translations of questions in Ancient Greek.
Any questions would do (the stranger the better really) but simply things like "what? where? who? why?" would be equally useful.

If you could please post the question in english and its translation into ancient greek that would be really helpful.
I hope that all makes sense.

Thanks for your help!

Lots of examples here:  http://cdn.textkit.net/WWG_greek_grammar.pdf , pp. 217 & 344.  A couple of my favorites:  ποῦ γῆς; ("where in the world?") and ποδαπός; ("from what?" = "what sort?").  Don't forget the Greek question mark, which looks like an English semicolon!
