I've set the locale:

$locale
LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

However, while this mount works:

$ mount -t smbfs "//Mercury/Echo" "/Volumes/Echo"
Password for Mercury:

This mount fails:

$ mount -t smbfs "//Προκρούστης/DiningRoom" "/Volumes/DiningRoom"
mount_smbfs: URL parsing failed, please correct the URL and try again: Invalid argument

Any suggestions as to how to fix this?

URL-encode the server name:

Προκρούστης > %CE%A0%CF%81%CE%BF%CE%BA%CF%81%CE%BF%CF%8D%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%82

The quotes aren't required here, so the following should work:

mount -t smbfs //%CE%A0%CF%81%CE%BF%CE%BA%CF%81%CE%BF%CF%8D%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%82/DiningRoom /Volumes/DiningRoom
