Boustrophedon script

I was in the Metropolitian Museum of Art last week, and I spent time in the Ancient Greek and Roman section trying to read some of the Greek inscriptions. I noticed something interesting about one of the grave markers. It consisted of two lines of dactyllic hexameter, and a third line identifying the sculptor; but the first line was written from right-to-left, the second line started at the left side and ran back to the ...

Instrumental vs Ablative

Hi all,

I'm a student of Latin, and I have decided to do some study of Anglo-Saxon for fun and diversion. I notice there is a case called the instrumental case in Anglo-Saxon. I found a reference to it on the web that states, "the instrumental case indicates that a noun is the instrument or means by which the subject achieves or accomplishes an action."

From Smyth (Section.1717) I gathered that the Direct Reflexive Middle would indicate transitiveness, because the self is the direct object. But Smyth also says (Section.1706) that the object of a transitive verb is always ...

Something I was wondering about~Very Advanced Question

Hi Everyone,

I have one of those more advanced questions about Classical Greek. Has there been any kind of writing that has come to light from the time of Homer?
I know that papyrus scraps have been found in Egypt basically in what we would call trash piles today. Has anything been found there relating to this?
I have wondered about the early language and if there was ever anything else found written in the ...
