MARKS OF PUNCTUATION

188. Greek has four marks of punctuation. The comma and period have the same forms as in English. For the colon and semicolon Greek has only one sign, a point above the line (.): ““οἱ δὲ ἡδέως ἐπείθοντο: ἐπίστευον γὰρ αὐτῷand they gladly obeyed; for they trusted himX. A. 1.2.2. The mark of interrogation (;) is the same as our semicolon: πῶς γὰρ οὔ; for why not?
