    It surely is in Greek.Neogreek,actually.How did i figure that (i don't know a word in Dutch and i been living in Belgium for 2 months and a half,so Neogreek is completely strange to me,though a know of my fair share of words in Ancient Greek (especially the ones related to physics and mathematics)) out???Simple,in the second page,among all those Greek letters,the word "Volt" showed up.Had it been in Greek,it should have stated B(large beta,in Neogreek read "V") omicron lambda tau.
