I need a word...

how does one express in Greek the idea of "to exchange", meaning 'I give you and you give me at the same time; I give you something and you pay off with something'.

I guess it should be some prefixal derivative of "ameibesthai" or "allattein" or "didonai", but I can't figure it out right now... :(

What is everyone reading?

We've not had a book thread in a while.

In Greek, as always, I'm reading Homer. Also Pindar. I recently got D. Page <i>Sappho and Alcaeus: An Introduction to the Study of Ancient Lesbian Poetry</i>, and this means I'm reading a good deal of those two poets. Little bits of Lucian as the mood strikes, but my major bus-to-work reading is still Eurpides' <i>Alcestis</i>. I'm using a self-contained student edition (text, notes, full vocab), but ...

XAIPETE! SALVETE OMNES!

I only just discovered this forum (and the Textkit site in general) yesterday, which was quite a surprise to me, as I have been collecting links of interest for Greek, Latin, classics, history, polytonic Greek fonts, and the like, for probably about eight years, now. I am not sure quite how I managed to miss this one :oops: but it's great.

I wish I had known about ...

3 little problems

saluete omnes

I have some problems with these sentences. I hope you can help me out.

Plinius, Epistula IX, 36
uenor aliquando, sed non sine pugillaribus, ut, quamuis nihil ceperim, non nihil referam

"sometimes I go hunting but not without my notebooks, so that I, even if I ... anything, do not bring back nothing"

I don't understand the ceperim: why perfect subjunctive? how would you translate it? which tense would you use in English ...
