Are you sure this is (Modern) Greek? It is not spelled with Greek letters either. Where did you find it?

In that case, ohsi, PANFYMON is more likely to be a Slavic word derived from a Greek epithet, perhaps formed from pan, "completely" + thymοō, "rage," "be high-spirited" (cf. panthymadon, Adv., "most heartily," Homer, Odyssey 18.33).  Maybe PANFYMON = panthymos in the accusative singular or genitive plural case.

thanks for the explanation, I think "completely high-spirited" corresponds best to the context of the inscription
