Answers to Questions

How to encrypt using Greek Letter-to-Number cipher?

The encryption phase consists of replacing each character of the Greek alphabet by its rank/position in the alphabet (the alphabet has 24 greek letters, each having a lowercase form and a capital form) that is:

1

α

2

β

3

γ

The decryption phase consists of replacing each number N by the letter located at rank N in the Greek alphabet, thus 1 = α, 2 = β, ... 24 = ω.

Example: 21 becomes φ

How to recognize greek alphabetic rank ciphertext?

The encoded message with greek alphabetic position is theoretically composed of numbers between 1 and 24 (as there are only 24 letters).

What are the variants of the Greek Letter-to-Number cipher?

As for A1Z26 with the Latin alphabet, several variants are conceivable as starting with 'α = 0' (instead of 1), using a deranged alphabet, etc.
