Specific information about this server

  • Ikariam uses "s6" in its URL as the server designation for this world, no matter which community server / language version you use.
    • Ikariam is using the letters of the Greek alphabet  wp as the names for the first (1st) twenty-four (24) worlds.
    • Ikariam is using Greek gods wp as names for the twenty-fifth (25th) world onward.
  • Ikariam uses a few special servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (not used often / reset after each session) - For when they need to test changes that occur at Higher levels of the game and would take too long at normal speed to reach.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers (1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 )" - For testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers [1 (reset after each round - 1 per language group) / 2 (permenant - in each community)]" - Special servers that run for 6 months at a time, run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules compared to the normal game servers.

General information

Zeta (uppercase Ζ, lowercase ζ; Greek wp: Ζήτα [ziːta] Zita) is the sixth letter of the modern Greek alphabet  wp. In the system of Greek numerals  wp it has a value of 7. It was derived from the Phoenician letter wp Zayin  wp. Letters that arose from Zeta include the Roman Z  wp and Cyrillic З wp.


Unlike the other Greek letters wp, this letter did not take its name from the Phoenician letter wp it was derived from; it was given a new name on the pattern of beta, eta and theta.

The word zeta is the ancestor of zed, the name of the Latin letter Z  wp in Commonwealth English. Swedish wp and many Romanic languages  wp (such as Italian wp and Spanish wp), do not distinguish between the Greek and Roman forms of the letter; "zeta" is used to refer to the Roman letter Z as well as the Greek letter.


Zeta has the numerical value 7 rather than 6 because the letter digamma  wp (also called 'stigma wp' as a Greek numeral  wp) was earlier in the sixth position in the alphabet.
