I have downloaded D'Ooge, and printed up the first chapter.....I think I'll make it my nighttime reading for a while and see how easily it comes (or doesn't come) in the next couple of months.

Critical Apparatus

Would anyone be so kind as to briefly explain how an <i>apparatus criticus</i> works? I understand the basic principle that alternative readings are recorded at the bottom of the page, but I am at a loss as to what '' signify, let alone abbreviations like 'ath.'.

Though I am sure, that mostly everyone here knows Herodotus, I want to explain briefly, why I think such group should be started.

Wheelock Chapter 3

Ok, here's my translation of the selection from chapter 3, with the Latin first.

Agricola et vitam et fortunam nautae saepe laudat; nauta magnam fortunam et vitam poetae saepe laudat; et poeta vitam et agros agricolae laudat. Sine philisophia avari viri de pecunia semper cogitant: multam pecuniam habent, sed pecunia multa viram avarum non satiat.

and my translation:

The farmer praises both the life and the fortune of the sailor; the sailor often praises the ...
