Agathos Daimon

What is the transliteration of the Agathos? Is it Agathos Daimon or Agathosdaemon? I don't mean the Latin translation, I mean the transliteration, in Greek spelling. Such as Apollon and not Apollo. Or Athene instead of Athena.

More properly, it's Agathos Daimon, not Agathosdaimon. The original Greek, Ἀγαθὸς Δαίμων, is two separate words.

Agathodaemon or Ἀγαθοδαίμων Agathodaímōn is a compound word. Otherwise it is two separate words, an adjective and a noun.
