The Authorship of Prometheus Bound

Any opinions or ideas about the authorship of Prometheus Bound? In my understanding of the matter: Aeschylean authorship was never questioned in ancient times, but Mark Griffith's study has provided quality statistics which seem to show that the language of the play differs significantly from the other Aeschylean works. But (and even Griffith admits this) we have only seven of Aeschylus' plays, and three of them comprise a trilogy, and are therefore likely from the ...

So, I'll ask the question here: are any "direct-reading" style texts like "Lingua Latina" available for ancient greek?

Ancient Greek last names

Well, was there such a thing? I'm trying to find a list of the earliest Greek last names. It's hard to find a list of these, let alone info on this topic. (Please tell me it's at least pre-byzantine! :o )

Learning Accents

Are learning where the accents fall, and where they go in declining important in the beginning? Or should it be gradually learned?

Greek dictionary online

I have tried searching the forum to see if anyone knows of a good on-line Greek dictionary - like Whittaker's "Words" program for Latin. However, it is hard to search for something so specific with 2 words used so much on this forum! So forgive me if there have already been 25 posts about this subject!

This is remarkable little poem. At 12 lines, I think it's a good candidate for memorizing.

Ibycus 286.
