I’m confused about your choices. I was taught 2 options:
Standard Latin (now sometimes called Ecclesiastical Latin) - - > aridae would end in the same sound English epoch would start with
The fancy new pronunciation some scholars have claimed is closer to golden age Latin (now sometimes called Classical Latin pr .) - - > aridae would end with the sound that Italian aeroporto starts with.
Neither option agrees with any of yours it seems.
