FWIW, the upsilon by this time was probably pronounced identical to eta (as
is the case in modern Greek). For example, some of the alternate spellings
found in Coptic indicate that this is so (at least in late antiquity). It
would have sounded less like "Korea" to them as it does to modern students
of ancient Greek.
