'Papam habemus!'

Quid vos diceretis si fore ego ut Papa sanctique eius Archepiscopi confestim conspicerentur, forentve haud in conspectu sed saltem nobis proximi.

Semper plus vobis minimam Papae urbem commotionis praeferre promitto, in praesenti iam tamen aeger diu hic, idcirco ne una quidem acta caerimonia. At ubi mi episcope, ex me rogetis, archepiscopi vel sacerdotes? Patientiam contra exclamem habeatis! Papa profecto e regia coorta ...

You have been Versified

All this Versifying makes me ask a simple question to myself: what is the point of this? If the Romans copied Greeks then is it natural to require that any Latin poem be in a rigid verse which often causes people to restrict their expression to a set order. I know the slight freedom in cases, elision, spondees for dactyls etc. but why must you put a strong caesura in the third foot? And what ...

Kallisti

I know absolutely nothing about Greek except for the alphabet and some English roots, but I am curious, is 'kallisti' the dative superlative of the word for 'fair' (i.e. 'to the fairest')?

More modern verse in Ancient Greek

Paired aspirated consonants

It’s my understanding that when an aspirateable consonant (i.e. p, t, or k) is placed before an aspirated consonant, both consonants must be aspirated. (Please correct me if I’m wrong.)
i.e. i)xqu&j
