Correct!! :D

Anyway, I think those 3 letters are there for decoration only.
There is no connection between the word itself and the level.

Yes, I think so, too... I don't think it's koinè, nor even medieval Greek

Maybe it's a joke (if it isn't just random decoration), the library is a kind of university after all. Having "Drink" plastered all over the place would be fitting for academics.

I don't know if it is allowed to react on an old post.
But I was looking at the collection of the British museum because of some pictures of Lara's home in TR1.

I found this.

Votive relief for the cure of a bad leg, inscription “Tyche [dedicated this] to Asclepios and Hygieia as a thanking gift”. Marble, ca. 100–200 AD. Found in 1828 in a sanctuary in Milos, Ægean Sea.

It has a PIO in it. But it is part of a word Asklepio (asclepius). Reminds me a little of Monty Python with the leg.. :D

It's all Greek to me :p

It could be, actually... they took as textures part of another word, and it would make sense. Because "pio" alone means something else.

AskliPIO (with omega)
