person = πρόσωπο"?

Yep. Also, individual = άτομο. Sometimes πρόσωπο and άτομο are interchangeable in Greek. ^.^

Wait so the three words are the same? Aren’t there any difference?

To me "πρòσωπο" is more like a "face".

Hi, maybe it's just me but this translation sounds weird to me. Isnt the word άνθρωπός more like "human"? In previous lesson there was a word "άτομο" which sounds more suitable to me here. Thanks

It's used as both. Some use the word άνθρωπος to describe a person, some others use άτομο. I personally feel like άνθρωπος is used in a much more generic context. ^.^
