Aoidoi.org: Pindar's Olympian 14

My introduction (well, part of it) to Pindar is now commented: Olympian 14.

My thanks to Chad who noticed some spelling errors and suggested a few places where I could give a little more metrical detail.

I keep a list of poems to read. Most things get onto that list because someone suggested it might be interesting. This one made it onto my list because someone (I forget who) on the classics-l mailing list recommended ...

Composition Exercise Number ?? + 1

Having dispatched JPII with a suitable eulogy (or two), I suppose dikh dictates that we should welcome Benedict XVI with a little something too.
Any suggestions for a metrical scheme for such a salutation, Will?

Lysias: Please Help

Hi all,

Please consider this piece (part 20) from Lysias' 12th speech, against Eratosthenes (I hope I got it right!):

Attic Poets?

Are there any poets (or better yet, playwrights if their monologues are in verse) who wrote in Attic and are relatively easy to understand?

the form "bebo^san"

Hi, everybody:
Perseus says "bebo^san" is the "perf. part. act. fem. acc. sing" of "baino^", and this fits the context (Plotinus 1.6.9.15) well.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Infinitive as Mood

This is not specifically a Greek grammar question, I post it here because it came up in my Greek 102 class. There appears to be some difference of opinion among grammarians as to whether the infinitive is properly classed as a mood, and I was wondering if anyone here has some insight on this.

Smyth (355) lists the four "finite" moods (indicative, imperative, optative, and subjunctive) and then goes on to say that the infinitive ...
