You could for that matter rename it to ἀμφορεύς, assuming you have a
Classical Greek keyboard.  (If you have a modern one, which is somewhat
more likely, just leave out the rough breathing and call it αμφορεύς,
though that is not an actual Modern Greek word.)

For anyone who is wondering, nobody knows why the word changed gender from
masculine in Greek to feminine in Latin.
