Quotes from the Reading Course

One of the things I'm really enjoying about this Reading Course in Homeric Greek book (aside from the fact that I HAVE IT!!!!) is the quotes at the top of each lesson. I'm keeping a running quote list on my computer, and I thought I'd share some of them with the people on the forum. Note that these quotes are taken from a textbook written in 1945.

“The liberal arts college is one of the ...

Xenophon 1:2.7

Entauqa Kurw| basileia hn kai paradeisoj megaj agriwn qhriwn plhrhs, a ekeinoj eqhreuen apo ippou, opote gumna/sai bouloito eauton te kai touj ippouj
I'm having trouble translating this sentence from the place o(pote gumna/sai...
gumnasai is aor opt
bouloito is opt pres
1.I think it should be opt obliqus, is it?
2.If I'm right it is Acc cum Inf, Acc is e(auton Inf is missing(ei)=nai) but then where is Verbum regens?

They said it couldn't be done...they said it couldn't be found...they said it was out-of-print and unavailable...but the Library proved them wrong!

Greek Verbs

I have a few questions about verbs, because while writing my vocabulary / flashcard program, I have gotten quite a bit ahead of myself. So...

1) Are there *ANY* verbs that have 1st person dual conjugations? Smyth and Betts & Henry give me the idea that there are not, but I want to make sure. Databases don't handle exceptions very well, so if there are *any* verbs that have 1st person duals, I need to ...

Mystery Quote

Hi, everyone. I'm trying to put together my group's newsletter (by Friday), and one of the contributors wants to include a phrase often quoted by one of his professors long ago... only he can't remember the exact quote, or who originally said it. ::cough:: I'm hoping it will sound familiar to someone here. If you can tell me who said it, fantastic. If you've got the actual Greek text, well, you're my hero. It's something ...

there is a passage (of Plutarch I think) where a greek spy got his hands cut by Persians without showing any pain. Can anybody help me in finding the book with this story?
Thanks a lot, Pierantonio

I'm always on the hunt for a nice pocket sized Greek New Testament. Does anyone know of any editions which are particularly portable and where to find them? <br /><br />Thank you<br /><br />Geoff

English - Greek (need help)

Hmm... I thought I might try and translate something from English into Greek (I've got an important exam coming up next week...). I've never tried to do this before and it took me absolutely ages! One hour for just this one sentence and I'm not even sure I got it right :'(. <br />Ok here goes:<br /><br />The sun was about to sink below the horizon when she noticed the two ships sailing away from ...
