I've heard alot of great things about Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic Greek. Is it really as good as they say? Another text that gets mentioned is Thrasymachus by Peckett.

Nice Seymour book up for auction


This doesn't come up for auction but only 1 or 2 times a year. It's described as near fine condition

Seymour's Language and Verse of Homer

I think it's fair value is somewhere around 25-30 dollars US.

I don't know the seller, so beware. I'm just pointing out a nice item if anyone's interested.

Nice ebay auction for Latin books...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... gory=29306
