It's a Girl!

Hi Everyone.

Arthi and I had a girl on Wednesday. We named her Mia.
She's 6 pounds 6 ounces and 18 1/2 inches long. Everyone's doing very well and we're all home from the hospital now.

I'll make a Nathan/Mia soon :-)

Here's a picture to share..

Dialect of the Homeric Hymns

I have a couple of questions about the so-called "Homeric Hymns." First of all, since they are attributed to Homer, I assume that they are written in the epic dialect; is this accurate?
Secondly, I was wondering about how difficult these hymns would be to read for a relatively new student of Greek. Would they be comparable in difficulty to the epic poems, or would it be more like a first year Greek student trying ...

Like:

Clarini et Tsamici

Hitch Hiker's Guide to Galaxy

H2G2 is about to open as a movie.
I only knew this work rather recently. And I'm hooked up and now think it is worth translated into Classical Greek, much more than Harry Potter, Though I cannot read now what shall have been translated, about the time it shall have been translated I shall had had studied enough to read it at least stumblingly. And I will admire whoever would have had succesfully translated it ...

What Declension?

Salve,

I'm in Latin 1. I was trying to write a sentence that said "We were doing nothing." Nihil would be in the accusative case correct? This leads me to my question what declension is nihil? This is my best shot at the sentence:

Nihil faciebamus.

Thanks

Juvenal and TC

Does anyone know a good book about textual criticism and Juvenal, or if not that maybe someone knows where I can find the manuscript P that is supposedly the best manuscript available?

Thanks

Moving tomorrow...

Hi all!
I'm moving to Italy tomorrow so I don't have much time (argh, still not packed half of my stuff yet :lol: ) and it seems I won't have a pc or internet there at first - but you never know, I might find an internet café. As soon as I can I'll be back though with some pics.
For the next six month I'll be ...

Two beloved disciples in John 20:2 ???

TON ALLON MATHETEN ON EPHILEI O IESOUS (John 20,2)

Is there any good reason for translating (with NASB R.Young, ASV, HNV, Webster and Latin Vulgate) this sequence of words straightforwardly and without any comma as

"the other disciple whom Jesus was loving (as a relative/"ephilei" instead of "egapa")"

Rather than using the circumlocution:

"the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved" ?

I find the second translation unnecessarily complicated in addition to containing an absurdity ...
