εἴκοσι ἐρωτήματα -- ἔχω τι ἐν νῷ.

Μᾶρκος τῷ Δαυὶδ καὶ τοῖς ἄλοις φίλοις χαίρειν πλεῖστα.

ἔχω τι ἐν νῷ. οὔ τινα, ἀλλά τι. οὐ πρόσωπόν τι, ἀλλὰ σκευή τις.

τὸν λόγον ὃν ἔχω ἐν νῷ ἀναγιγνώσκομεν ἐν τῇ Καινῇ Διαθήκῃ.

ἐρωτᾶτέ με οὖν ἐρωτήματα εἴκοσι περὶ τούτου. μόνον δὲ Ἑλληνιστὶ γράφωμεν, παρακαλῶ.

Τὰ τοῦ Στεφάνου ἑρμηνεύματα

Τὰ τοῦ Στεφάνου ἑρμηνεύματα

Image

Τὰ ἑρμηνεύματα τοῦ Στεφάνου, ὥσπερ τὰ ἄλλα ἑμηνεύματα, ἔχει τὸ κείμενον καὶ ἐν τῇ Ῥωμαϊκῇ καὶ ἐν τῇ Ἑλληνικῇ. Οἱ γὰρ πάλαι διδάσκαλοι τοῖς ἑρμηνεύμασιν ἐχρῶντο τοῦ ταύτας τὰς γλώσσας διδάσκειν. Ἐνταῦθα δὲ ἀναγιγνώσκω φωνῇ μεγάλῇ ἐκ τῶν τοῦ Στεφάνου ἑρμηνευμάτων τὴν ὁμιλίαν, καὶ τὰς Νικιαρίου ἐρωτήσεις καὶ ἀποκρίσεις, καὶ τὰς Καρφιλίδος , καὶ τὰς ἀποκρίσεις φρονίμων, καὶ τὰ παραγγέλματα ἐν Δελφοῖς παρὰ τοῦ Ἀπόλλωνος ἐπὶ τοῦ στύλου γεγραμμένα πλησίον ...

If the words are correct grammatically is it still correct?

This is for the English to Latin translations. I usually translate them in English word order (sometimes I change a few words around), to get them over quicker. I don't enjoy them as much as Latin to English. My question is, if the words themselves are correct, should I be worrying about the word order at all? Because wouldn't the sentence I give have the same basic meaning as the sentence in the answer key? ...

Lysias. 24 4 ἂν and τε

περὶ μὲν οὖν τούτων τοσαῦτά μοι εἰρήσθω: ὑπὲρ ὧν δέ μοι προσήκει λέγειν, ὡς ἂν οἷόν τε διὰ βραχυτάτων ἐρῶ.

About therefore of these things this much let it be said: on behalf of the things which are to me a concern to say, as far as I should be able through brevity I will speak.

I can't quite see what ἂν and τε are doing. With ἂν I expect to see an optative ...

pronoun antecedents. Hor. Sat. I, #5

Horace and friends spend the night on the road.

proxima Campano ponti quae villula, tectum
praebuit et parochi, quae debent, ligna salemque.



Near to the Campanian bridge an hostelry, which
gave shelter; and purveyors firewood and salt, which things they-are-responsible-for .

I think I have this about right, but I had to work on the two relative pronouns.

Here are my constructions of the two relative pronouns. ...

2nd aorist subjunctive with ει for η in Homer

In I.26 there is the form κιχείω instead of the κιχήω you'd expect; then in line 62 ἐρείομεν for ἐρῶμεν

How are these forms explained?

How to spell a name

I came across this in Rouse's Reader and was able to solve it only with some effort. I'm sure that quite a few of you have seen it before, so no spoilers. But once you've solved it, maybe post a line spoken by said character from a Greek Drama that features him (in English or in Greek)?

However, feel free to ask any questions that you'd like.

Ancient Laconian Doric Alphabet

Hello,

I am looking for a table with all Laconian Doric alphabet letters and an english equivalent to every letter. The laconian I am referring to is the ancient Greek Doric Laconia spoken in Sparta.

All I was able to find are essays on the topic but nothing clear enough to get a clear idea. Does anybody know how to spell Sparta in Laconian Doric ? that would help too

All help is greatly appreciated. ...
