Mystery Quote

Hi, everyone.

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 ...

courage!

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

Pocket Edition NT

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 ...

Learning Greek- New Testament or Classical?

I am considering learning ancient greek, with the ultimate goal of being able to tackle the works of the well-known greek writers (Plato, the playwrights, and possibly Aristotle)<br />I have heard that New Testament Greek is far less complicated than the Attic Dialect used by later authors.<br />I have never read the New Testament, and would be interested to read it in its original language.<br />If I were to learn New Testament Greek first, how ...

H&Q anyone?

May I ask who else here is working from Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course, and how far you've reached? <br /><br />I've just finished Unit 8 myself, but am rather hoping that I can get through the rest of it with a 'classmate' or two. :)

H&Q Unit 2

Could someone look over these English to Greek translations for me, please? I'm particularly interested in getting the accents right. The themes for this unit were: Active Present, Imperfect, Future, and Aorist indicative tenses, Active Present and Aorist infinitives, and subject-verb agreement.<br /><br />1. You used to send gifts from the market place to the gods of the island.<br />2. Did you (pl.) order Homer to free the five men in the house or not?<br ...
