Okay, since you agree that we should learn the pronunciation used at the time of
the early Roman Empire, what *is* that pronunciation? I have only one
description here that I know of, from Blass, Debrunnen, und Rehkopf, which
pretty much assumes that I already know how to pronounce ancient Greek.

Is there a comprehensive description of this pronunciation? Is there widespread
agreement on this pronunciation?
