Could Romeyka (Ophitic) Greek Be Wonder Woman’s Dialect?

Could Romeyka (Ophitic) Greek Be Wonder Woman’s Dialect?

Probably not literally so, but this archaic Greek dialect, preserved in the folds and nooks of the rugged Black Sea side of Asia Minor, may be as close as any living person will get to hearing Themiscyran. After all, only a little over 100 kilometers west of Trabazon, the heart of the Romeyka-speaking area, is Aretias, the island formerly sacred to Ares, where Amazons were alleged to have worshipped; and another 200 kilometers along the coast is the river Thermodon (???????? or more recently, Terme), next to which the original Themiscyra was built.
