"Hypatia Library" / "Epsatia Librarps"

The letters are real Greek. "Hypatia" is a real Greek name.


Hypatia (/ˌhaɪˈpeɪʃə, -ʃi.ə/; hy-pay-shə, -shee-ə; Greek: Ὑπατία Hupatía;
born c. 350–370; died 415),] often called "Hypatia of Alexandria," was a
Greek mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher in Egypt, then a part of
the Byzantine Empire. She was the head of the Neoplatonic school at
Alexandria, where she taught philosophy and astronomy.

Hope this helps!
