Replacing a Verb Reference Book

When I was an undergrad, I damaged a professor's book. It was my first 3000-level Greek class and I was overwhelmed, so he loaned me a syntax guide. Before he gave it to me, he made sure that I knew that he adored that book and expected it back in good condition. I managed to crack the spine and several pages detached. I returned the damaged book and just felt horrible about the whole situation. ...

I am just starting to learn Greek

Hi, everyone,

I am just starting to learn the Greek language. I have been taking classes at my local community college, but I am sincerely stuck with what I have to translate. My grandmother and grandfather moved to the United States from Greece, which is why I am so interested in learning the language. To shorten this post, I really need some help translating this quote: "This too can be overcome" I did not want ...

Help with the Potential Optative?

The potential usage of the optative, from what I understand, is meant to be translated with an English modal auxiliary. In fact, having consulted several textbooks and writings, it appears that nearly all of the modal auxiliaries used in English can be used to translate the potential optative. This is probably due to my lack of understanding about the formal grammar of the English language, but how does this set of, what is in my ...

JACT Reading Greek 2nd Ed. Schedule

I was just wondering how fast one should go through the books? I plan to take a year, but that might be too slow. Also, how many days should I dedicate to each section before moving on? Perhaps someone could give me a schedule? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Commentaries on Anabasis

I did a search to see if anyone has brought up the topic of commentaries on the Anabasis. I have the Goodwin commentary from Textkit as well as the two beta versions of Geoffrey Steadman. I was hoping to try and track down a few more to address some of the harder parts (for me at least) of the text. I apologize if there is already a thread for this topic but I could not ...

Stefan Hagel's Aulos reconstruction

The extremely impressive Stefan Hagel continues to be extremely impressive:


Also, a longer video and lecture:


And a concert (the sound gets better after the beginning):


The most pervasive sign of the average classicist's unconcern with the realities of music is the ubiquitous rendering of aulos, a reed-blown instrument, by 'flute'. There was a time when it was legitimate, because the classification of instruments had not been thought out scientifically and it ...

Doric forms?

I'm reading Greek Elegiac Poetry in Loeb Classical Library. This is a from a fragment of Tyrtaios, Plutarch in Plut. Lyc. 6 quoting Lycurgus:

Διὸς Συλλανίου καὶ Ἀθανᾶς Συλλανίας ἱερὸν ἱδρυσάμενον, φυλὰς φυλάξαντα καὶ ὠβὰς ὠβάξαντα, τριάκοντα γερουσίαν σὺν ἀρχαγέταις καταστήσαντα, ὥρας ἐξ ὥρας ἀπελλάζειν μεταξὺ Βαβύκας τε καὶ Κνακιῶνος, οὕτως εἰσφέρειν τε καὶ ἀφίστασθαι δάμω δὲ ὰν<τα>γορίαν ἤμην καὶ κράτος.

I suppose this is some sort of Doric. What I'm wondering about is the ...

hi. :)

what is the dictionary form (finite present indicative singular) of katante^santes ?
I think it is the aorist participle of katantao^, but what is its root verb ?
kata + anti + what ?
In the intermediate Liddell&Scott, I could find, in the antao^ article, that aor.1 was anta^sa,
but I couldnt make sure if there was another form ante^sa (for katante^santes).
