There are four marks of punctuation:

  • the comma (,) and the period (.), both written on the line and corresponding to the comma and the period in English;
  • the colon, which is a dot above the line (·), and takes the place of the English semi-colon; and
  • the question-mark (;) which looks like an English semi-colon.” source
 This English mark…  is this in Greek; cf. BBG 4.1 Example: 
 comma comma  θεός,
period period θεός.
 period above the line  semi-colon θεός·
 semicolon  question mark  θεός;

Greek does not use quotation marks to set off direct discourse.
