Future perfect as imperative

Long time, no visiting Textkit, but all is well!

Several times in the current chapter of Fabulae Syrae is the future perfect used as an imperative ("Ne hoc feceris"). Gildersleeve mentions that this usage exists but not more. Is there any real distinction between using the regular imperative and the future perfect? He also mentions the future as imperative, which is idiomatic in English ("You will not do this" or, better, "shall"); I guess the ...

NEW AUDIOBOOK - 'Julia' by Maud Reed

Latinum http://latinum.org.uk has released a new Latin Language audiobook - 'Julia', by Maud Reed.
This Latin audiobook contains stories of Roman myth, legend, pseudo-history, and history. The conceit of the book is that the stories were recited to a young girl, Julia, an inhabitant of Roman Britain.

The audiobook is for the most part quite elementary, and is intended for beginners, although all levels of students of Latin benefit from listening to 'comprehensible input', ...

Am I right in thinking that ...

question in subjunctive: Cicero, pro Sestio no. 128

I'm still having trouble seeing the clues for questions in the subjunctive. This question sent me to the translation before I could make it out. Pro Sestio is an oration in a political trial of Cicero's client Sestius. But Sestius's plight is entangled with Cicero's own politics. For this reason, much of the oration is devoted to justifying Cicero's actions. Cicero has been exiled, but while away the political struggle took a different turn, and ...

Caius or Gaius?

Off to the beach tomorrow for a summer vacation & hope to catch the eclipse in Charleston, S.C.
(Sadly, looks to be cloudy all up and down the Mid-Atlantic states, but The Fates will decide).
Anyway, bringing my Loeb Caesar I, II, III to read. They are the perfect size for the beach and

But I notice that even within individual volumes Caesar is sometimes C.(Caius) as in the text ...
