Λυκαων (Lycaon)

I’m still on my Greek ambigram kick. This one came very naturally: Λυκαων (actually ΛυκαΩν, with an uppercase omega) — that is, Lycaon, a son of Priam who is killed by Achilles in the Iliad, or, if you prefer, a mythical king of Arcadia who was transformed into a wolf by Zeus as punishment for his cruelty.
Why Lycaon? It just happened to be the first Greek name I thought of that started with lambda and ended with nu. The other letters in the name turned out to be equally cooperative.
