tollere

1) I find tollere an interesting verb because its perfect active, sustuli, is so differently spelled from its present active.

2) Concerning the subjunctive mood, certain verbs look identical to the future active indicative mood, like agam (I will lead) and agam (Let me lead, if iussive). These two expressions have ...

Griesbach/scholz text

I realize this is more a textual criticism question than a Greek Q, but what can anyone tell me about the Griesbach Text and the Scholz text?

Thanks in advance
