Lucian quote

The Greek I can't fully translate is in Loeb 249, the intro to Tacitus' Annals, p. 237. "Nor, in any case, is it given to many historians - to none, perhaps, of the greatest - to comply with the precept of Lucian (repeated almost to the letter by Ranke): Tou suggrapheos ergon en, hos epraxthay eipein." For not the most stubborn of facts can pass through the brain of a man of genius, and issue ...

Greek: An Intensive Course

I read recently a minutum of information presented in "Greek: An Intensive Course" and I encountered an apparent fallacy, supposing Herbert Weir Smyth's book to be the paragon of the Greek Grammars. The book predicated the character rho beginning to never have a rough breathing and upsilon beginning always to have a rough breathing; however, as is insinuated above, Smyth's grammar is at variance with the former, saying both always to have a rough breathing. ...

Books about Classical Greek Literature

Is there a book which exists which would be a survey of Classical Greek Literature in the sense of Duff's Survey of Latin Literature? Duff wrote one volume about the "Golden Age" and another about the "Silver Age". I know this is kind of a tough question!!! Any help would be appreciated!

Accent confusion

Can some one tell me why the accent pattern is different for path/r patro/j and quga/thr qugatro/j ?
Nouns are said to have persistent accents but I can't detect a reason why the accent in quga/thr moves from the penult to the ultima.

Thank you.

Greek Textbooks

Since we're on the subject of Greek textbooks, I'm currently using Reading Greek by JACT. It's a fine text, but I wish the grammar and explanations were more thorough. I've heard alot of great things about Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic Greek. Is it really as good as they say? Another text that gets mentioned is Thrasymachus by Peckett. A somewhat similar approach to RG -- is it any good?

Studying Greek on your own can ...
