Treasure find

I found Elements of Greek by Francis Kingsley Ball at a garage sale for 50 cents. :lol:

I've never heard of it. But that's a nifty thrifty deal if you collect grammars.

Its published by Macmillan. Anyone know of this one?

Catullus 16:13

Vos, quod milia multa basiorum
legistis, male me marem putatis?


Can anyone help me with marem? It doesn't seem to be in my dictionary or in Perseus' Lewis and Short. Or possibly I'm not looking in the right place?

It seems to mean: you, because you read of many thousands of kisses, do you think I'm no ___?

third declension i-stem rules

How to find out if a third declension noun has i-stem?
I've gathered the following from several Latin Grammar books, including some e-books from the "learn latin" section here.

a 3rd declension noun has i-stem if:
1) parisyllabic nouns in -is or -es, e.g. ciuis, -is ; nubes, -is. exceptions: canis, panis, iuuenis.
2) imparisyllabic nouns, with genitive's -is preceeded by more than one consonant, e.g. ars, artis ; nox, noctis.
3) neuter nouns ...

Please help me with this passage

Salvete,
I am currently working with two separate Latin texts. The first is Clyde Pharr's Aeneid Books I-VI, and the second is "Aeneas to Augustus" by Mason Hammond and Anne Amory. I am currently having trouble with the 8th story in "Aeneas to Augustus". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

"Victores Galli urbem intraverunt, ubi nobilissimos senum in sellis curulibus et honorum insignibus primo ut deos venerati sunt; deinde ut homines despicientes interfecerunt."

two odes, two translations, two epigrams

some compositions i have to hand, i.e. in digital form:

'The London Eye' (Horatian alcaics):

uides ut alti per nitidas means
caeli, palumbes albide, semitas
cursusque praecelsos quietus
pectoribus uolitam serenis?

hic in cubili conspicuo super
urbem uirorum Londiniensium
plenam nec in pennis columbae
nec merulae sedeo coruscis,

sed ferrei me palma uolubilis
tutum gigantis certaque sustinet.
dum Phoebus intonsus pererrat
aetherium radiansque cursum,

labor gregem inter, candide auis, tuam,
nec Noctiluca desuper omnia
crescente ...

suffix -ides

What's the etymology of the suffix -ides,
like in names e.g. Aristides, Archimides, Euclides, or even the Dorian Leonidas?

(I hope am correct saying -idas is another form of -ides...)
