Lesson XIV Paragraph 133 part 5

The English reads:
It was right for Cyrus to send gifts to his soldiers.

One possible translation is"
a1cion h]n tw|~ Ku=rw|~ dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.

However, that sentence has two dative nouns (one of which is subjective, so it shurely can't be right).

Another possible translation is:
a1cion h]n, o9 ga\r Ku=roj dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.
But that sentence is now broken by a comma, and so doesn't seem quite right.



Any thoughts? ...

prwreu\j
doesn't appear to be in the LSJ. It's obviously some sort of ship's officer. Does anyone know more precisely?

is there a list of books you already have jeff?

maybe a running poll of books on your bookshelf which aren't already scanned?

i'd really really like sidgwick's greek verse composition if you have it. there isn't anything like that on the net at the moment, unlike grammars, prose compositions, commentated texts, &c. and u just can't get that in bookstores around here...

i'm hoping that if sidgwick's prose composition is public domain, then so is his verse composition... ...

Vulgate?

SALVETE OMNES!
Jeff, I don't know if you have it yet, but what about the Vulgate? It certainly is public domain.

Kuhner's Greek Grammar

I have an 1852 translated copy of Kuhner's Greek Grammar by Edwards and Taylor. Sorry - still looking for a public domain copy in German.

I'm seeking input about just where this book should fall in line with other yet to be posted grammars. We also have Hadley and Allen's Greek Grammar, Haldley's Greek Grammar.

Also, my knowledge of the famous German grammars is not the best.
Can anyone set me straight on what are ...

Which reading material contains enough vocab?

Does anyone know which book contains enough vocab to learn latin to an advance level?

Maybe one of Caesar's books?

Speaking of vocab, the average english speaknig person uses ~50,000 words, how many would there be in latin?

thanks

BTW to those who like to be funny, a dictionary is not what I am looking for.
