τῇ αυρίον (accent on the penultima)

I am going through Sidgwick’s work, found here: http://www.textkit.com/learn/ID/167/author_id/66/
On page 28, paragraph 37, related to the use of the dative, he supplies the example:

Τῆ ἀυρἰον.

Much as in Modern Greek την επαύριο this stands, I believe for Τῆ ἀυρἰον ἡμέρᾳ.

But why is the accent not on the first syllable? Checking Liddell Scott, I only see accents on the first syllable: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/mor ... ...

Primus Annus / Puer romanus

Hi, I scanned two well-known school books and proof-read them. I'm planning to donate them to
Project Gutenberg such that everyone can conveniently download them.

As I quite likely missed some scanning errors (incl. macron signs), please let me know all typos you become are of. Thanks for any help in advance.

The versions are based on the scans available on archive org:

Diogenes Laertius 7.172

I came across this nicely researched post that I wasn't sure I agreed with. (Warning, dirty story ahead.)

φησὶ δ᾿ ὁ Ἑκάτων ἐν ταῖς Χρείαις, εὐμόρφου μειρακίου εἰπόντος, "εἰ ὁ εἰς τὴν γαστέρα τύπτων γαστρίζει, καὶ ὁ εἰς τοὺς μηροὺς τύπτων μηρίζει," ἔφη, "σὺ μέντοι τοὺς διαμηρισμοὺς ἔχε, μειράκιον· αἱ δ᾿ ἀνάλογοι φωναὶ τὰ ἀνάλογα οὐ πάντως σημαίνουσι πράγματα."

ὁ εἰς τὴν γαστέρα τύπτων γαστρίζει = the one striking his belly "bellies" (as a verb) ...

Is this a purpose clause? Catullus 15

commendo tibi me ac meos amores,
Aureli. ueniam peto pudentem,
ut, si quicquam animo tuo cupisti,
quod castum expeteres et integellum,
conserues puerum mihi pudice,
non dico a populo—nihil ueremur
istos, qui in platea modo huc modo illuc
in re praetereunt sua occupati,—
uerum a te metuo tuoque pene
10 infesto pueris bonis malisque.

I think the line in bold is a purpose clause - 'that, if in your heart, you have ever longed for ...

Thucydides 1.14.1 Penteconters

δυνατώτατα γὰρ ταῦτα τῶν ναυτικῶν ἦν. φαίνεται δὲ καὶ ταῦτα πολλαῖς γενεαῖς ὕστερα γενόμενα τῶν Τρωικῶν τριήρεσι μὲν ὀλίγαις χρώμενα, πεντηκοντόροις δ᾽ ἔτι καὶ πλοίοις μακροῖς ἐξηρτυμένα ὥσπερ ἐκεῖνα.

I've been reading somewhat lazily the first pages of Thucydides, without looking very deep into matters, since I've read this passage already before. I was wondering what exactly is the distinction between πεντεκόντορος and πλοῖον μακρόν here. I think in Herodotus they are more or less ...

ΤΙΣ as self reference?!

In the third section of his ΚΑΤΑ ΜΕΙΔΙΟΥ Demosthenes says:
3] οὕτω δὲ τούτων ἐχόντων, ὅσα μὲν παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ προσῆκε φυλαχθῆναι, πάντα δικαίως ὑμῖν τετήρηται, καὶ κατηγορήσων, ἐπειδή τις εἰσάγει, πάρειμι,...

The translation by Murray on http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.01.0073%3Aspeech%3D21%3Asection%3D3 reads:

This being so, I have in your interests taken all due precautions, and now that the case is before the court, I am here...

Since it is Demosthenes who filed the complaint and later withdrew it, ...

Quid Sibi Vult

Quid sibi vult means "what does it mean." Can you say quid tibi vis to mean what do you mean? Either way, what is the best way in Latin to say, "what do you mean."

Was the sense “probably” for EIKOTΩΣ classical?

In an effort to resurrect my Ancient Greek I participated in the weather discussion on the agora! I wrote this wretched piece:

Βορέας σήμερον όλην τήν Βιέννην χιόνι κατένειψε.
νῦν δέ, ἀκρόθι νυκτός, ἐν σκότῳ,
τόν κῆπον οὐκέτι δύναμαι ὁρᾶν,
εἰκότως η χιών τέτηκε.

It probably contains scores of errors, but now I want to ask about ΕΙΚΟΤΩΣ. Upon seeing the above, the kind ΕΚΗΒΟΛΟΣ remarked:

An "Ash Wednesday" Day Treat

T.S. Elliot, "Ash Wednesday" wrote:Teach us to care and not to care.
Teach us to sit still.
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will.

ἀμερίμνως ἀλλήλους φιλῶμεν.
καὶ δίδαξον ἡμᾶς, Κύριε, ἡσυχίαν ἔχειν.
κἀν τῇ πετρώδει γῇ,
εἰρήνην ἡμῶν εὕρωμεν ἐν τῷ θελήματι αὐτοῦ.
