Ruling "from ... to ..."


I would like to say

Croesus, ruling from 560 BC to 546 BC, was ...

in Latin.

How would you construct this phrase? It is especially the "from ... to" bit which I am not sure how to translate (I am not even sure my English is correct: would you say "from ... through" instead?).

Also, would you use "annus" in this case and how?

Thanks. :D ...

Hello, Salvete, Hola

This is one hell of a username to type out, so first of all, address me by my first name, Keith.

Second of all, this forum seems awesome. When you have people congregating to discuss the Classics of their own accord, you're bound to get a lively, eclectic mix of personalities. Or so I hope. ;)

I've been studying Latin for four years and am currently in ...

Need some short phrases translated please

A friend is starting some video game group, and asked me to translate some of his name ideas into latin. Unfortunately I remember almost nothing from my couple years of latin. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me out putting these few things into latin:

Knights of the Abyss
Bringers of Darkness
Destroyers of Light
Under the Veil of Night

Happy sounding stuff huh? :P Thanks ...

help with purpose/result clauses

1. So many soldiers attacked the citadel that they easily captured it.
tot milites arcem oppugnaverunt ut eam facile captaverint.

2. Cicero wanted to speak with the intention of criticising Antony.
Cicero dicere eo consilio voluit ut Antonium iudicaret.

have i used eo consilio in the right sense and place, or best just to ...

new puter!

I've long been itching to buy a new computer. My laptop is 5 years old and my old pc is 8 years old. Both are dying, but I put off buying a new one because I am poor like most of the rest of you.

So finally today I got a new computer!

And it is so fast and pretty. lol

I also got a 17" LCD monitor, which I wasn't expecting to be able ...

All the Greek Verbs

I'm reading enough Greek now to get stuck on the verbs. The reviews of Marinone's reference book of All the Greek Verbs are either very positive or very negative. From the description, though, the book sounds as if it's what I need. Does anybody use this book?
