translation help

Hi,
I was trying to translate a sentence which is tough for my level. Is there anyone so kind to translate it for me? I am not writing my translation attempts because they don't make any sense.

"Tum adversarii a nobis saepe superati ridebunt, arma capient, Romam et Capitolium numquam antea expugnatum, numquam deletum petent."

thanks in advance,

Latin Study Group

Hello Everyone!
I'm new to Textkit and was wondering if there is any interest in (or any possibility of) starting a beginners' Latin study group. I would be happy to work through any of the books on the site; I have already downloaded and started looking at D'Ooge. Having a study group would make learning Latin more enjoyable as well as provide some support and motivation to the effort. If there's no interest in the ...

Zeta question

Just flipping through some textbooks and grammars in anticipation of the White study group, and I've come across a disagreement about how the greek letter zeta is pronounced.

Is it sd or ds?

Both pronunciations seem to have their proponents. I'd be grateful if any of you guys could provide an answer, or background to whatever dispute centres around this issue.

Cheers.

Epictetus

Epictetus was a Greek slave, so was his name Greek? How would you pronounse his name? What part of his name would you emphasize?

The Old Idiosyncrat's Method for Starting Homer

In his page http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/HomericProlegomena.pdf Prof. William Harris suggests a method that he used successfully to learn ancient greek; he copies a line of greek from the Iliad, puts a rough translation on the line below, and on the third line he adds any grammar he might need in order to understand the line. He says that by the 100th line he was starting to read with some ease, and that by the 200th line he ...

In Parentheses

I just found this interesting site that offers texts and translations in pdf form. I was interested to find both the Iliad and the Odyssey in a recreated boustropheron Attic script, but it also offers many other languages.

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 ...
