2. Odyssey
3. Thucydides
4. Aesop fables

Sincerely yours,

"False Plautus" and the lacuna in Amphitruo

I was wondering if anyone here might know if Ermolao Barbaro's amendment to Plautus' Amphitruo can be found anywhere online? I have been studying the play and I'm very interested in checking out his scenae suppositiciae and how he fills in the unfortunate lacuna.

Hoping for the best.

De consolatione philosophiae


I plan to make a voice recording of the De consolatione philosophiae for Librivox. Since I need to read from a public domain text, would you recommend one of these three editions over the others? Maybe the most recent (Weinberg)? Or maybe you know other sources I could use. Thanks!

Undecim milibus

Livy (adapted by Orberg (cap XLIV)) is describing how the citizens' (of the early Rome) obligations are decided after a census: '....Undecim milibus haec classis censebatur.' Is this an ablative milibus? How does it work? 'They were estimated at (ablative?) 11,000?

Nec tamen ne ita quidem prius mittendum

I'm having trouble parsing this sentence (Livy XXII.25.11). A tribune of the plebs proposes giving magister equitum Minucius greater power:

Nec tamen ne ita quidem prius mittendum ad exercitum Q. Fabium, quam consulem in locum C. Flamini suffecisset.

The translation gives:

That notwithstanding, he concluded, Quintus Fabius must not be sent back to his army until he had seen to the election of a consul to replace Gaius Flaminius.

The part I'm having trouble with ...

Is there any easy Latin literature I can read yet?

I'm on Chapter VII on LL. I know I'm rushing, but I want to read some Latin lit already! :p. Is there anything out there, anything at all, that I would be able to read at my level?

please check my parsing

Seneca, de ira, book 1, section 10

Context: govern yourself by reason, or become the slave of feelings (fear, etc.)

in tyrannide illi vivendum est in alicuius adfectus venienti servitutem

I had to consult a translation; here is my hypothesis on the Latin.

Illi: dative singular, dative of the agent, with respect to vivendum est

vivendum est: "it must be lived".

venienti: present participle, dative singular, modifies illi, "coming"

in . . . servitutem: "into ...

Arnold/Bradley: 2 questions


I am just putting finishing touches to my transcription of the Key to Arnold's Latin Prose Composition (revised by G.G. Bradley). I have two questions (which may seem basic, but I want to make sure that I am not introducing errors of my own):

  • The whole world knows why you are envied.
  • Cur (quamobrem) tibi invideatur nemo est quid sciat.

Should it not read ...nemo est quin sciat?
  • I have been informed, ...
