Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry for the delay in approving posts and the flood of newly approved posts. I was at Boy Scout summer camp for a half week with my son and then on to a wedding.

Hello/Introducing myself :)

Hello everyone!
My name is Els, I'm currently 17 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I have taken a Latin class in High School, but dropped it after 3 years since I preferred Ancient Greek, which I have taken for four years already.

I'm a new member of this site and this is my introduction. I started to study Koine Greek at spring and my goal is to learn to do good exegesis of the New Testament scriptures. I'm also interested about the textual criticism of the NT.

I found this forum today and this seems to be a very good place to learn Greek with others. :)

historical novels based on Lysias?

I am in the middle of 2 week Ancient Greek course and we have been working on Lysias' "On the Murder of Eratosthenes". As we only have one side of the story it crys out for a historical novel given other sides - the point of view of his wife for example.

Has anyone written an historical novel based on any of Lysias' courtroom speeches?

Hello, I understand that I'm supposed to introduce myself. I will try to do so in a way that doesn't get my account deleted. I am an academic in a non-classics-related subject (computer science, Assoc. Prof. at the University of Mary Washington) but with great interest in ancient Greek literature, particularly Plato, Aristotle, and the New Testament.
