We still haven't settled on a start date yet, but we've opened up the list for subscription.


That page has a link at the top of the description to the page for joining the mailing list.

oscillationis vocab help in Hyginus

I'm stumped by a word. I'm trying to translate Hyginus' Fabulae of Icarius and Erigone and I can't find the word "oscillationis" anywhere.

Here's the context:

Quo responso de pastoribus supplicium sumpserunt et Erigonae diem festum oscillationis pestilentiae causa instituerunt et ut per vindemiam de frugibus Icario et Erigonae primum delibarent.

So does this mean it is not wrong to put ...

Salvete, omnes!

I happen to be an interested Latin student, and apparently I have too much time on my hands. Either that or I'm following Amy. It's interesting to see how much everything is interconnected; I got here through a search for some poetry, which I started because of another forum I looked at, which I viewed because I wanted to search for a haiku I wrote once.

sorry, quick question on Ch.29

HEy All,
I just started Ch. 29 and I was a bit confused because the topic is imperfect subjunctives but there seem to be both passive and active forms, and in the back there were no forms that corresponded exactly to their paradigms. Anyone have any light to shed?
