Hey! How come my name isn't a jolly candy color?

Really, I just want to ask a couple of trivia questions about the board and its displays:

1. How come my name isn't a bright, jolly, candy color?

2. How come those round texty things beside every header are black? - was it blue? Or even red?

3. How come some have the little snazzy red star? (I'm guessing 'cause I started the thread - shucks).

4. Really baffling - How come sometimes the texty ...

Introducing new member Akalovid


My name is Angelos. I grew up on mount ΠΗΛΙΟΝ and lived there until coming of age. I had some education in Ancient Greek, albeit not the profoundest kind, because in the ΛΥΚΕΙΟΝ I chose the ΘΕΤΙΚΗ ΚΑΤΕΥΘΥΝΣΗ to become a physicist.

Then I went to Germany to study astrophysics. I took a lot of classics with me, but my studies really challenged me, so I neglected my Ancient Greek and eventually forgot a ...

Hello - I'm new here.

Hello to All,

I'm new here, and during my registration, I was directed to post about myself, so here we all are. :-)

I don't know anything about Latin or Greek, although I was just beginning to take up the study of Koine Greek when I ran into more than one reference that led me to believe that by studying Classical Greek I would also be able ...

Texts for a beginner

I have started the journey by dabbling with a few apps during the working week, but will shortly be buying a book or two for home study.

I have Gwynne's Latin: the introduction on my wish list. Other recommendations most welcome.

I've studied other languages via immersion for the large part, but recognise studying Latin will be different. Any recommendations for how a grammar phobe can be guided also welcome!

Gratias tibi ago

Easiest Greek & Latin Authors/Texts

Greetings All,

I put this post here in hopes both Latin & Greek Lovers would see it.

A little clarification: 1. By "easiest" I mean just that. Needing the least handholding.
I think traditionally Caesar was often the first Latin author students tackled. 2. By
"authors/texts" I mean a complete text, not selections. So for example, a dialog by
Plato I would consider a text but "Pericles' Funeral Oration" is not a text - it's ...
