Not recently introduced but not commonly used.We dont have to re introduce ancient greek words.The greek language is a living organism and it has never stopped being spoken in Greece.The contribution of the greek orthodox church is major which as you may know always uses ancient greek during it's liturgy.

In modern Greek, and in the English, the word now means pain.
Perhaps so.On the other hand we do use some compound words today in which ponein is a synthetic and i realise that it has kept its original meaning. Let me give you two examples,filoponia=diligence and fygoponia=lazyness.
Leandros note is correct. I think the word kataponw (w is omega), has the closest meaning to the ancient "ponein". "Kataponw" means "harass, overwork."
Ancient "ponein" could have over one meanings. According to Hesychios 'Lexicon(5th cent.AD) "ponein" means:ποιεῖν(poein). ἀσκεῖν(askein). κακοπαθεῖν(kakopathein). ἐνεργεῖν(energein) that is correspondingly create(through labor), exercise,"have a hard time" and "take action".
The modern greek "ponos" and "ponw" may have evolved from the third meaning.

Rusyn: @leandros nikon Vatra is "fire" in Serbian, and Pyrros is Greek equvialent of that name. Also Pyrros was used to be known as Kralj Vatra in his older accounts hence Admin calls him both ways.
