Har () mountain

Megiddo () or Megiddon () Megiddo, the city of Manasseh

Harmagedon () Armageddon (Har + Megiddo)

Translate the Greek name of Jesus into English letters and also add up the numeric value of each letter.  The letter I is the capital version of the lower case iota. The smooth breathing mark (') has no effect on the pronunciation.

There are three letters that fell out of usage in Greek (marked with an asterisk*), although they appeared as part of the ancient Greek alphabet.  Although these were not used on normal Greek words, these ancient characters continued to be used for the purpose of counting and listing numbers.
