Greek/An English sentence translated into Ancient Greek

Question
Hello, I'm seeking a phrase for my manuscript about Alexander the Greek. What I need is the latinized ancient Greek for "You're my son." I would be grateful for any assistance that you can provide. Thank you so much.

Answer
Hello,

"You're my son" translates into ancient Greek as follows:

Σὺ εἶ ὁ υἱός μου (in ancient Greek letters).

If you want this sentence to be transliterated in Latin alphabet that we use still today, here it is:

S ei ho uis mou (latinized form)

Best regards,

Maria
