nekron Afrodith?

from the "Visual Cue Cards to Accompany THE ANCIENT GREEKS SPEAK TO US" :
nekro\n A)frodi/th Dionu/sou di/xa kai\ Dh/mhtroj.

nekro/n: adj. dead, neut. sg.
Afrodi/th: fem. sg.
Dionu/sou: Dio/nusoj, masc. sg. gen.
Dhmhtroj: Dhmh/thr, fem. sg. gen.
di/xa: in two ways
kai/: and

I can hardly find a match of grammatical construction in this proverb.

I think a possible interpretation is nekro/n is not an adjective. But an acc. of nekro/s. and Afrodi/th ...

the aorist and the perfect tense?

What's the difference between these two tenses?


Also, is the Greek perfect tense conceptually different from the English equivalent in any way?




EDIT: Just to clarify; by 'differences between tenses' I meant in terms of what verbs of those tenses mean (not how they're conjugated :) ).

Verb form ?

Hi,

Would the 1st pers. aor. ind. mid./pas. of qea/omai 'to gaze' be e)qeasa/mhn? I entered the aorist form in the Perseus morph. analysis tool, but I get an error massage.

Thanks

The Passion of The Christ

Now that it's out, has anyone seen The Passion of The Christ? Can you comment for us on the historicalness (outside of quoting scripture)? Was it actually pronounced in classical Latin, not church-Latin? Any first-century early-christianity historians here? I'm just looking for some good discussion on the movie, that's not just pro- and anti- jewish jobless folk venting... ;)

Eccite Hominem?

Here's a question that I, being such a neophyte, have been puzzling over since I finished Wheelock's Latin Grammar and then heard, once again, the famous Pontius Pilot quote, 'Ecce Homo!'

Pilot was addressing a croud, and 'homo' should be in the accusative, right? So why did he not say 'Eccite Hominem!'? That's assuming that my grammar here is correct, I haven't checked it to make sure.

Is 'Ecce Homo' a colloquial usage that existed ...

Hello to all,

Exercice A

2. Miles sagitta interfectus erat.
3. Puer ...
