oscillationis vocab help in Hyginus

I'm stumped by a word. I'm trying to translate Hyginus' Fabulae of Icarius and Erigone and I can't find the word "oscillationis" anywhere.

Here's the context:

Quo responso de pastoribus supplicium sumpserunt et Erigonae diem festum oscillationis pestilentiae causa instituerunt et ut per vindemiam de frugibus Icario et Erigonae primum delibarent.


It looks to me like "oscillationis" is a third declension adjective in the genitive modifying "pestilentiae". Would it be correct to understand this as ...

Latin-English dictionaries

I consider buying a Latin-English dictionary. I know that the options are legion, and that one's choice is dependent on a multitude of things: level of study, areas of interest, price etc. Still, I'd love to hear some opinions about dictionaries. What are your personal experiences in this matter, which ones have you liked or disliked etc.? Please share your thoughts :-)

The cinematographic Latin sentence

Can anyone can help me? In Paragraph 601 of the Allen & Greenough New Latin Grammar, the authors use a passage from Livy’s ‘Ab urbe condita’ to demonstrate long-sentence verb-at-the-end structure. It’s about what happened to the Volscians when they tangled with the Romans.

Someone wrote that Latin sentences have a cinematographic logic, presenting a chain of events as a series of pictures. I think that is true of this sentence, but I wish I ...

We'll see each other on thursday?

Salvete, everybody,

I am writing a short message in Latin and want to finish it off with a "We'll see each other on thursday!"

I have no problem with "on thursday" (die Iovis) nor with the verb see and its inflexions.

But I do wonder how to put the reflexive, mutual part of my sentence. How would one say "each other" in Latin?

Please help! Thanks.

Latin Vocab Word Help?

Greetings from a first time poster. I'm translating a papal document from the early 16th century, and am working from text that I transcribed from a digital camera image of a page in a book. I might have transcribed the word wrong, but at any rate I can't find it anywhere in any dictionary or reference work.

The word as I've transcribed it is "scislionis". Does that look familiar to anyone? FWIW, the context in ...

Allen and Greenough's and connecting relatives

My course syllabus lists A&G's newest edition as 'required text.' We don't do anything directly from it; the teacher just thinks it's good to have as reference. Being the penny-pincher that I am, I downloaded a copy from textkit, but somehow I don't quite think it makes the cut as 'newest edition.' Rogo: So do you think that investing in a copy of A&G's is a wise decision for this cash-strapped student? What are the ...

Question: adverb phrases

Exercises: Chapter 7 of Wheelock's.

1) Sentence 9 reads:
Post bellum multos libros de pace et remediis belli videbant.

After the war, we were seeing many books of peace and remedies of/for the war.

I wondered why 'Post bellum' is not written as 'Post bello' (Ablative) because this is an adverb phrase telling time of action. The book wrote it as the Accusative but this is not an object being acted upon.

2) Could someone ...
