am I saying this right?

Im trying to say roughly, shade of rust. I started with umbra aerugo but I don't really understand the declinations part. Should I say umbrae aeruginis? or umbram aeruginem?

Nec reverti nusquam."

Gratia vobis, y'all

Commentary for Aeneid VII - XII?

I've been working through Pharr's commentary on the first six books of the Aeneid, and getting to the point where I'm looking for more to read. I'd like to finish out the second half of Aeneid, but Pharr doesn't cover those books, so I'm looking for recommendations on commentaries.

Fun and Interesting Latin Passages - suggestions?


I have a summer group of Latin students who plan to study Latin on our own.
We're all university students but still need a bit of guidance.

We come from a wide range of backgrounds, Classics, Religious Studies, English, ...
