Κυκλωψ (Cyclops)

My first Greek ambigram, the word Κυκλωψ (Cyclops):
Note: In the Greek alphabet, as in the Roman, some letters have very different capital and lowercase forms — omega (Ωω), for example — which may make it difficult for readers unfamiliar with Greek to see how my ambigram matches the original letterforms. The ambigram actually reads ΚυΚΛΩΨ, using all capital letters except for the second one.
This one is begging for an accompanying ambigraphic in which the Cyclops’s mouth is a mirror image of his single eye. The post-Ulysses Cyclops would be even easier, since gaping holes dripping blood would be appropriate for both eye-socket and mouth.
