Is this modern Grek or koine?

Here is a link that has the apostles creed in Greek. Is it Koine or Modern? I don't recognize some parts of the grammar. http://www.creeds.net/ancient/apostles.htm

Pro\j qoukudi/dou qiasw/taj :)

e)/rrwsqe.
I'd like to ask you a question about a difficult -and famous- point in Thucydides. In Qoukudi/dou I(storiw=n V.89.10 (from Melians' dialogue), we read ta\ dunata\ d' ec w=)n e(ka/teroi a)lhqw=j fronou=men diapra/ssesqai. Which verb is the phrase ta\ dunata\ related to? Isn't diapra/ssesqai the object of fronou=men? Of course, in order to answer my question, one must bear in mind the whole text of this chapter. Thank you in advance.

two Thetas

I have run across two ways of writing a Theta in the same piece.
One looks "normal", like so; q
The other one is leaning back and the bottom left side is open.
Why?

need some help with grammar

Hi,

I came across some tricky passages of a work by Dion Chrysostomos. The text is part of a school book I use and there it says that it is taken from D. Chr. IX 14-16 and the authors may have changed some passages...

What poetry to read for a Greek beginner?

I've just finished J. W. White's First Greek Book and am about a quarter way into North and Hillard's Greek Prose Composition. I'd really like to start reading some poetry in Greek.

Being a little bit further in latin I've taken to Cattulus and find it quite do-able; I'm looking for something similar in Greek.

Recommendations anyone?

So many ways to go

I've noticed in the few months I've been studying Ancient Greek that there are several words for "go." I'm wondering if there's a subtle difference between each one that someone here might be able to explain to me.

This will be the first time I'm trying to write in Greek characters here, so hopefully this will come out okay.

Here are the words for "go" that I've encountered so far:

i)e/nai

e)/rxomai

bai/nw

badi/zw


Hope ...

SWZOMENOIS

In the Bible in 1 Corinthians 1:18, the word "SWZOMENOIS" is an adverbial participle dative plural, right? And it should be translated out as " are being saved?" Is that correct?
