Conspiracy theories... not so stupid

I've often thought these conspiracy theories to be a load of junk, but in the last few years I've started to change my mind. Some are of course rubbish, but there is a bit or sometimes even more than just a bit of truth in them. Maybe my mind is being corrupted by too much information, but I actually believe that whatever I think might be happening behind the scenes is actually nowhere near as ...

Caesar

I know Textkit has the literal Gallic War translation, but is there any interest in a standard school edition of Books I-IV? Or is this need met elsewhere?

Key for Beginner's Latin Question

Hi everyone,

I am planning on using D'ooge's text Latin For Beginners.
I noticed that someone on the board said not to follow the key
too closely, as it may contain errors?
I am worried that that will slow me down. I am very new to Latin.
Can anyone give me some advice? I would imagine that as I go
through the text I will be impeded if I can't rely on the key for ...

latin song lyrics

Most of these are kids songs, some of them pretty amusing:

While we're on the topic, does anyone know if there has ever been made a whole cd of latin music? I don't want kids songs but real songs... stories, prayers, whatever... I just like listening to it. I've got a few gregorian chants but I'm looking for something less choral. My favourites are the latin prayers from ...

Ancient Greek Coins

I recently bought on ebay an authentic, Ancient Greek silver drachma coin (c. 340 BC) on ebay. On one side you have the head of the goddess Hera with her hair rolled up, and on the other side an eagle holding a serpent in its talons. I have to admit, it wasn't my intention to purchase anything, I was just browsing; but, when I happen to chance on it, I just couldn't resist. I thought ...

I think therefore I am.

Hello everyone! I am new to these forums, and this is my very first thread! It is very nice to be here. Anyway, I created this thread to address a certain topic. I would like to discuss the topic of existence and the quote that is the title of this thread. René Descartes said the following: I think therefore I am. How many of you people agree with this statement? I, for one, think this ...

A question: which would be the best book containing an overview of the entire Roman history?

Lesson XIV Paragraph 133 part 5

The English reads:
It was right for Cyrus to send gifts to his soldiers.

One possible translation is"
a1cion h]n tw|~ Ku=rw|~ dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.

However, that sentence has two dative nouns (one of which is subjective, so it shurely can't be right).

Another possible translation is:
a1cion h]n, o9 ga\r Ku=roj dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.
But that sentence is now broken by a comma, and so doesn't seem quite right.



Any thoughts? ...

doesn't appear to be in the LSJ. It's obviously some sort of ship's officer. Does anyone know more precisely?
