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...)

I've got a list of enclitics from a book available here (bennett's "a latin grammar") and this is it:

-que, -ne, -ue, -ce, -met, -dum, -cum

I've searched these fora and the web, and got no explanations except for the -que and -ne particles, and loosely for the -ue. could someone show me examples using each one of those enclitics, and explain their functions to me?

Numeralia Graeca: 20307?

xai/rete w)= so/foi

I am speculating about how the Greeks wrote numbers. My grammar is not much help in that regard.

I understand they used the letters, but I am not quite sure how the system works. Are Greek numeralia like the Roman numeralia?

Specifically, I want to write 20.307. What would that be?

Thanks :D

uncial latin script font


I'm trying to make a font that resembles latin uncial script. I've only seen some pictures of hand-copied scripts, and in none of them did I see periods and commas.

Right now all I have is what can be seen in the pictures below. The commas ...

I've been learning Latin for nearly a year and a half now, and a week today I'm taking a Higher exam in it. (Scottish equivalent of English A-levels. Big exam, anyway.) For it, I've studied parts of Cicero's In Verrem V and parts ...

Hello everyone!!!

I am quite interested in Russian Literature and many people have told me about the poet Alexander Pushkin. I haven't read him, so I was wondering if anyone of you have, because I would really appreciate your comments on it.

Quote for a Bad Teacher

Just wondering if anyone could give me some help with this:

I have an English class with a teacher who marked my final grade down today from an A to a B based on "who I am" even though I had earned an A through the coursework. She told me that despite my work this semester, I didn't deserve an A because of my attitude toward the class. To get to the point, we are ...
