Anciens Latina

Does anyone know where I can find resources for ancient Latin? Not any Latin, but specifically the kind used in Senatus Consultum de Bacchanlibus? I would appreciate it. The only things I know so far are a few rules, such as si = sei; punio = poenio; in caelo = in caelod; vulcanus = volcanus; latus = stlatus; and bonus = duenus... Am I missing something, and is there more Latin like this than just ...

translation

Can someone please help me translate this part from fabulae faciles?

Interea ea dies appetebat quam Iason per nuntios edixerat,
et ex omnibus regionibus Graeciae multi quos aut rei novitas
aut spes gloriae movebat undique conveniebant. Tradunt

Cum as a conjunction

I have some problems understanding when I should use the indicative and when I should use the subjunctive with cum. Wheelock says that it should be used with the indicative only when it's temporal (when, not why) and never in the past tenses. But a tutorial I read said that the indicative is always used when it's temporal and the subjunctive when it's causal. Which is right?

Which of these (I bet it's neither... :roll:) translations of "He came to run" is correct:
Venit ut currat. - Primary sequence
Venit ut curreret. - Secondary sequence

ego cramans

Er I'm kind of "self-cramming" for my Latin final Friday so yeah I've got a few more questions...

What is up with this sentence?
Me rus cum amicis ambulaturum pollicitus, non arbitrarus sum me domi debere morari.
Is that a perfect passive participle?? How do you translate that if it it's deponent! (this is just what episcopus said would happen, "i am fished"...)
I am thinking Having promised to walk to my country house with ...

Difficile Est Saturam Non Scribere?

Hello, I'm currently though with any and all basic Latin, as well as mediocre Latin texts (Eutropius etc...) Now, I thought that I might be able to translate some real texts, but I seem to be having problems! The text in question is Juvenal's Satura. The third line just eludes me. Any ideas?
