I recommend settling on a uniform convention: either the accurate transliteration of Greek that sometimes turns up in academic material, or the older Latin transliteration that tends to substitute Latin endings for Greek and that will look more familiar. For the type of campaign you want the latter may be better.

But if you want accurate Greek, you can look up many Greek words on Wiktionary by typing in the customary Latin form.
Excellent. Thanks! I love the aesthetic of the traditional Greek words, so I'm personally inclined to use them rather than the Latinized versions just to maintain that feel. When the PC's go visit that aggressive expansionist empire conquering the Italian peninsula, they can break out the Latin forms.
