Thank you kindly

The first word I just need a confirmation (or otherwise!) of my translation, this is from Dio's Roman History Book 42, Chapter 35.1. Here there is a sentence something like: Then Caesar, ...

Translation from Iliad

I thought I would share a little translation from the first book of Iliad that I worked on. Please take a look if you wish:


It is not meant to be "perfect" or "professional", but I hoped nevertheless it may have some virtue.<pre></pre>
