λομλρ βαρακ σοζιρ...

This is a bit of a special request. I'm working on a challenge that asks you to solve an Ancient riddle, as shown in this picture.



I presume it's greek from all the characters but I've had very little luck with any of the online translators. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there.

The characters are Greek, indeed, but the writing does not seem at all Ancient Greek to me but it is more close to modern Greek. Are you sure this is the exact copy of the authentic manuscript?

All the best,

Vicky

This is part of a university course I'm doing on encryption and I think the manuscript is madeup. i.e. made by my lecturer (that looks like a marker pen to me). But yeah, I've had no luck trying to read this at all. No one seems to recognise the text so I think it may be encrypted or something.

Looks like the end of the road though. Thanks for your help anyway.
