Cursive Script

Hey here's the Roman Cursive Script written in Britain.

Look at the box of writing below the alphabet. Click Show transcription. How do you render the latin? It seems deformed to me...but it's probably because I'm not exposed to enough original latin (or any yet!!)

Enjoy, I'll await your replies. (Come on benissimus! You know you want to be ostentatious with this)

New composition exercise for people reading Homer

hi guys, lots of people in this forum seem to have read at least the start of the Iliad or Odyssey (or both)... If you have, try putting the first 4 lines of the Aeneid into greek dactylic hexameter.

Arma virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris
Italiam, fato profugus, Laviniaque venit
litora, multum ille et terris iactatus et alto
vi superum saevae memorem Iunonis ob iram;

I sing of arms, and of the man ...

Pliny Quote

Hello,

I came across the following quote in a book and cannot trace it to its source, or even determine which Pliny it belongs to. Does anyone know?


"The great business of man is to improve his mind and govern his manners."

Thanks,

Byzantine History Book?

Can anyone recommend an introduction to Byzantine history that a non-specialist has some chance of understanding and which is reasonably current? Emphasis on late-antiquity, early Byzantine by preference if such a focused work exists.

Exercise 111, Part 1 # 9

This one I found pretty tough.

Latin: Cena nullius alterius ancillae est bona.

The answer key translation: "The dinner of neither of the maids is good".

So I guess that nullius alterius translates into "neither"?

nullius = none, no - gen singular
alterius = the one, the other - gen singular

Putting them together = not the one or the other = neither?

If true, my translation would be: "The dinner of neither maidservant is ...

New Latin Lati-English and English-Latin dictionaries

I want to ask you: Are there any Latin-English and English-Latin good dictionaries.
But don`t to ancient latin but modern.
I read sometimes new latin from internet for example from GREX, but sometimes I have problems because some words aren`t in my dictionary.
The same problem I have when I want to write in latin. Old wards are in many exelent dictionaries, but modern?
