Should the "θ" not be spoken like a "th"? See the example here: http://de.pons.com/übersetzung?q=χθες&l=deel&in=&lf=de (Its a german webpage)
Yes, the θ is pronounced like th. The audio for this word is accurate. From what I hear on the Pons the χ is given too much emphasis. Since this is a one syllable word the χ and the θ sound more like one letter. Try here for Greek spoken by natives: https://forvo.com/search/%CF%87%CE%B8%CE%B5%CF%82/. Hope that helps.
For some reason, this link does not seem to be clickable on mobile :/
I think it's a safety precaution, because it's difficult to see the target of a link on mobile without following it, so it doesn't make links clickable that have a specified link text.
could you share the entire URL
It also sounds like /fthes/ to me, so I'm not sure how the χ should be pronounced - as in χρόνος or as in χέρι?
/x/ as in χρόνος.
