Cordially,

Orberg texts?

I saw some old threads that mentioned these texts ("lingva latina" series: http://users.cybercity.dk/~bbe6711/ ) and the opinions were generally positive. Are their any more recent views from people on the board about Orberg's books?

Recommendations for reading

Ancient Greek last names

Well, was there such a thing? I'm trying to find a list of the earliest Greek last names. It's hard to find a list of these, let alone info on this topic. (Please tell me it's at least pre-byzantine! :o )

U)PE/R

In cunlliffe's lexicon, in the entry u(pe/r it says [in form comp. fr. u(po/]
