How the fuck are we going to have greek loans in a greekless word? One way could be from etruscan -- ancient greeks have interacted and colonized italy before the latins were even relevant, some greek have seeped their way into the language. Without a sizeable corpus, we could safely assume within Adia's context that these loans would have been indigenous development.

Another (important) path could be the Copts (ie. elves). Unlike Etruscan, however, the Copts have a consistent and sizeable native corpus, thanks to its survival well into the Christian and Islamic ages. Perhaps Coptic developed two registers, one denoting a pure and literally powerful language (since canonically Coptic is a descendant dialect of "hyrotic", a pan-metharian lingua franca of the time. (adia's magic system explicitly notes that all patterns, including language hold power) The hellenized register couldve been developed to separate that power to the realm of esotery. Hellenic register becomes exoteric, Egyptian register becomes Esoteric.
