I want to write a Latin dedication in a present to a classical friend.
I believe the format should be something like:
name of recipient (first name Latinised and inflected, surname uninflected)
object of dedication (hoc saxum/librum etc.)
reason why (I am not sure how best to introduce the virtues)
name of donor
and a verb of giving implied.
HOX SAXUM MAXIMUM
