Various problems on translating and Campania

I am trying to translate:
Don't let us suffer from the dry heat and the long drought, but save us from them.

So far, I have:

Sallust's View on Human Nature...

Logos is planning a Resource to teach Aramaic aimed at those who know Hebrew. Sounds Pretty Interesting. How different are the two languages?

Map of Ancient Italy

I recently scanned in the image of ancient Italy referred to in the text (pg. 1, PDF pg 11). Unfortunately I won’t be able to leave it up indefinitely since the image is 2.62. Mb and I expect to need the space at some point in the future. But it’s available for now.

Book Dedication

I just received my copy of the D'Ooge book and found the book dedication:

Filiolo meo
qui me non solum dicenda
sed etaim tacenda docuit
hoc opusculum est dedicatum


I think it is:

To my little son
who me not only by speech
but also without speaking teaches
this little work is dedicated

genocide, homicide etc derivation

Hi everyone

I have a quick query regarding some english words that are derived from latin, those that end in cide (homicide, pesticide etc). For example, I know that the stem of the word genocide is derived from genus, but is the cide part derived from a latin word? one meaning 'to kill' perhaps?

Thanks in advance for any help

PS what does QED stand for and mean?
