New works


I was perusing a copy of Harry Potter in Ancient Greek, lamenting the time it'll take for me to be fluent enough to read it when it dawned upon me. How much modern work is there for the Homeric and Attic dialects of greek? I'm talking stuff like horror, fiction, et al.

Translation question

I am working on chapter 7 and have a question about one of the english to latin translations....practice and review #13 page 46.

It says: After bad times true virtue and much labor will help the state.

My attempt: Post temporibus malis virtus vera et labor multus civitatem adiuvabunt.

comparative between two members

Hi, I'm working through Chase and Phillips, Chapter 9.

Concerning the comparative adjective between two members: is this always with the neuter ending -ion? If not, when is the masculine and feminine -iwn used?

For example: demokratia kreitton turannidos. Democracy is stronger than tyranny.

arrest and trial...conspirators

I am having trouble translating this sentence in "The Arrest and Trial of the Conspirators."

The thing had been marked by the magistrates alone. (Why no 'ab' before praetoribus?)

Gratias et Vale

I found this website, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.
