Site with declension of proper names and places?

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know where I can find a website with the Latin declensions of proper names and locations that have inherited some Greek case endings (i.e. Aeneas, Aeneae m. Aeneas, Delos, Deli f. Delos).

Thanks,
Deccius

Omnibus est forma quam tamen multi non vidunt.

The difference between "classicists" and "lat

Hey all,

I've been thinking lately about the differences between "classicists" and "latinists". Here's what I've come up with.

If he/she goes on to become a professional in the field, he/she works very much like a archaeologist, except that it is linguistic evidence that is examined instead of sherds. Everything ...
