Past, Present, and Future

Alright, this is something that has plagued me for a long time. As we all know, there exists this little thing we call time. Now, there are many different kinds of time.

Audio Cic. + Hom.

I remember there have already been posts about audio - tapes on the net. But I don't know, if there are audio - tapes on Cicero, Cato, De senectute and on Homer, Odyssea, 7 and 9.

cordially,

phpBB question

Owner/programmer:
