Excerpt from A Catalogue of Greek Verbs: For the Use of Colleges
Dionysius the Halicarnassian (roman. Antiq. Con siders it equivalent to the diphthong 01' or the Latin V. We may suppose then that F had the sound of the English W, or the Latin V as the Romans pronounced it; an... d that, in the time of Dionysius, the diphthong or win sounded like French. As, or English as, as in mean. Compare the exclamation stint, Latin ms, English we or race.
Herodotus in one instance (4, 110) represents it by the diphthong OI (if the reading be genuine). He states that 0269 in the Scythian language means a'mig, man; which seems to be nothing more than the Teutonic war, and Latin air.
