I am needing some help with some Greek words that I just can't seem to find the definition to. They are actually in Origen's Hexapla.




Thank you!

I saw Book I of Athenaze at the bookstore today. Out of curiosity I flipped through it. The thing which caught my attention was that it had NT Greek and (I think) Homeric in the same volume.

If there is anyone here who uses this book, does this series mix different dialects together? From what I've read in the "which dialect to start with" document here on Textkit, I thought there were big differences between ...

Aoidoi.org: Anacreon depressed - PMG 395

The only really serious verses of Anacreon we have, Anacreon 395. Epicurus and Lucretius would have much to say in response.

Can anyone tell me an English word which corresponds with the pronunciation of upsilon. I am having trouble discerning the difference between its pronunciation and Latin u. Any time I look in a dictionary, all I see is a French or German correspondent.

Aoidoi redesign done.

I finally finished the redesign of http://www.aoidoi.org. In terms of appearance, very little actually changed, though I hope it looks a bit less stern. The image system I used for Greek fonts in the older works has been replaced by Unicode (except for one file, soon to be updated). CSS trickery has been employed, so non-PDF pages should print much more attractively now.

Files have been shuffled around a bit, but there's a tricksy set ...

Link for Sappho

At http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/Sappho.pdf you may find a 150 pages introduction to Sappho with Greek texts of some poems, interpretation and some grammatical aids. Though this is the first text I am reading about her, I should say it is worth the click.
At http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris ... cs.gr.html are a lot of more texts by the same author.

Advice: Got a Taste of Greek - Now the Real Work Begins

I have been studying Latin for almost a year now and I decided to get a litle "taste" of Greek this past weekend, out of curiosity. I have a couple of Greek text books from the 19th Century that I purchased a few years back, knowing that I would one day spend some time with the language.

I read William's "Greek Dialects: Where to Start" post:
If you plan to read any other Greek at ...

A fragment of Xenophon on the death of Socrates

To My Colleagues at Textkit--
Once again I am hopeful of finding out the meaning of a sentence, this time from Xenophon, though I am not sure which work, nor where exactly it came from. The topic is common knowledge, though: the death of Socrates in 399 B.C.E. I will include the whole passage, for clarity, but the very last sentence is a mystery, although I think I know what it is saying, because I ...

Just quickly remind me ...

...can the last syllable in verb forms which end in ai (gignomai, essetai, etc) be scanned as short without correption? I'm talking about general lyric poetry.
