Constantinus Lascaris, Greek Grammar (1476)

The Greek Grammar by Constantinus Lascaris (Κωνσταντῖνος Λάσκαρις) is perhaps the oldest printed work in Greek, dating from 1476.

Two questions. . .

I read through this work, once as an undergraduate and once later, but can't recall seeing any indication as to what Lascaris' own sources were. It is too comprehensive and systematic to have been written ad hoc, and even if it were from memory, it would need a model for organisation. ...

Moeridis Atticistae Lexicon Atticum

Sorry for the lame question, but...

Grammar books dating from the 1820's till well into that century (inc. LSJ) refer to either Moer. or Piers, ad Moer. in their footnotes.

Some of those books are:
A Greek Grammar of the New Testament By Georg Benedikt Winer (1825)
A Copius Greek Grammar, Volume 1 By August Matthiae (5th Ed. 1837)
A catalogue of irregular Greek verbs [extr. from P.C. Buttmann's Ausführliche griechische ... (1837)

I understand ...

Byzantine Greek Reading List

Does anyone have a reasonably extensive Byzantine Greek reading list they would be happy to put up?

I am looking for the sort of list a PhD student in the field of Byzantine Literature would have to read for examinations. But it can be a list someone has made up from their own reading or knowledge of the area.

Crosby and Schaeffer Teacher's Manual

New member here. Been teaching Latin for many years, adding Greek to the curriculum this coming fall. Reviewing the Crosby and Schaeffer text, really like the presentation, should fit well with our existing Latin curriculum (Allyn and Bacon/Jenney) . . . but as it's been a couple decades since I took Greek, sure would be more confident if there were a teacher's manual or resource out there. Read a previous post in this forum (from ...

Hdt. 1.4.1 missing conjunction?? -accusative of "respect."

Every time I re-read this bit of Herodotus I feel I almost understand it but something always seems to slip away.

μέχρι μὲν ὤν τούτου ἁρπαγάς μούνας εἶναι παρ᾽ ἀλλήλων, τὸ δὲ ἀπὸ τούτου Ἕλληνας δὴ μεγάλως αἰτίους γενέσθαι: προτέρους γὰρ ἄρξαι στρατεύεσθαι ἐς τὴν Ἀσίην ἢ σφέας ἐς τὴν Εὐρώπην.

And here is my intentionally over-literal translation
up until this point therefore kidnapping alone there had been between-each-other, the (event) after this (?????) the ...

Declension of Ἐΰς

I'm starting my Homer courses soon, but I was slightly fazed by the adjective ἐΰς. The entries for this word in the various dictionaries seem quite scant, so I'm unable to acquire a good understanding of how this word is to be declined. Formally it seems similar to third declension -ύς, -εῖα, -ύ, but something doesn't fit.

Wikipedia suggests that this word comes from I.E. *῾συ-, which in strong cases should lead me to expect ...

Key to Sidgwick and Morice's Greek Verse Composition

Dear textkiters,

Does anyone know where I can get a copy (or PDF) of this? It has been recently reprinted (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Greek-Verse-Com ... gy_b_img_y), but I see that in other of the Greek works reprinted by this publisher, the Greek has been completely mangled, making them useless! Any help gratefully received.

Archilochus fragment

A fragment of Archilochus, numbered 112 in Campbell's Greek Lyric Poetry (and 191 in West's translation, but I'm not sure what critical edition the number refers to).

τοῖος γάρ φιλότητος ἔρως ὐπό καρδίην ἐλυσθείς
πολλήν κατ̣᾿ ἀχλύν ὀμμάτων ἔχευεν,
κλέψας ἐκ στηθέων ἁπαλάς φρένας

The meaning is pretty clear, but I have problem with the second line: apparently κατ̣᾿ goes with ὀμμάτων, but the interposition of ἀχλύν is strange to me. The other possibility is ...
