Answer Key for Dana and Mantey's Greek Composition Exercises

Recently, while looking for available helps for Greek composition, I noticed that my copy of Dana and Mantey's intermediate grammar for NT Greek had some English to Greek exercises in the back and an English-Greek vocabulary list. I have in the past spent many profitable hours with this grammar, but have never tried the exercises, mainly because I did not have a key. When I was first learning Greek, all my exercises were Greek to ...

De crinibus flavis

Olim vetus caecusque centurio perperam in cauponam Amazonibus plenam vagatus, lecto suo attacto poculoque post paulo accepto, num pincernae iocus de femina flavis placiturus esset interrogavit. hoc audito, quaedam proxima recumbens voce rauca et mascula sic ei roganti locuta est:

"Quod caecus es, hospes, decet tibi res quinque notandas: pincernam artium martialium peritam; coquam magno cultro armatam; custodem bis in bellis militem; a tui tergo sitam interfectricem principalem; et memet claram rudeque ornatam gladiatricem. quae ...

translation of one passage of In Catilinam 1

Non deest rei publicae consilium, neque auctoritas huius ordinis;

I am a latin beginner from China. I think Latin is beautiful and powerful.

Having a hard time with Greek composition (using Sidgwick)

Hi,
I've been working with Crosby's "An Introduction to Greek" and I picked up Sidgwick's "A First Greek Writer" plus key from this site. Feeling fairly confident that I could probably make it through the first exercise or two without excessive errors, I tried Sidgwick's first exercise (the one on swans).

Here's to you by Joan Baez

Here's to you, Nicola and Bart
Rest forever here in our hearts
The last and final moment is yours
That agony is your triumph

Vobis ultimum estis momentum.
Agoniens triumphavistis.


My first translation ever.

Origo Viae Lacteae

de Mythis Cherokiorum de James Mooney

Aliqui in austro habuerunt pistrinum maizio in quo contunderunt maizium et facerunt farem, et aliquod

mane cum venerunt id implere animadverterunt aliquod maizii inter noctem abstulitor. Inspexerunt terram
