Sorry for my additional information.

The comparison is not possible with a person who writes in English 
instead of in his own language.

This choice is in respect with the purpose of Wikipedia: probably the 
information written in English is more widespread than in other language 
(my comparison is with the English, but someone can choose also French 
or Spanish or Russian).

The choice of Old Greek can be acceptable if this choice is based on the 
spreading of information but I don't think that there are so many Old 
Greek readers.
