Pardon my senility!

I blame it for why I have not been introduced.<br /><br />Greek I am learning to decipher that famous passage of Homer concerning names of places and how many men and ships they had and too many names of generals to remember afterwards. A passage so tedious and yet a part of our great literature surely must hold some secret!<br /><br />You who know me from the Academy, you also know of my relationship with ...

Delphoi

Hello everyone,<br /><br />I'm German so please be patient with my English. I'd like to ask your advice: I'm trying to find out the right Ancient Greek spelling of the famous Delphic inscription "Know Thyself". It is usually written "gamma, nu, omega, theta, iota - sigma, alpha, upsilon, tau, omicron, nu". I've come across a different version where the last word is written with an "epsilon" behind the "sigma". <br />I'm also trying to figure ...

nearing 100,000! - how about an online contest?

For me 100,000 downloads is a nice and noteworthy benchmark and I'm thinking some sort of 'celebration' event is in order. <br /><br />I would like to write a register to win contest. It'll be free to enter (with a newsletter subscription of course!) and the winner will receive free books that we'll mail to them - we'll ship world-wide.<br /><br />For Textkit, the contest should serve as an interesting way to bring attention to ...

Forum Romanum

http://www.forumromanum.org/index2.html<br /><br />Excellent site. They're building up a library of all literature in Latin down to the 18th century, and have transcripts of The Private Lives of the Romans, Outlines of Roman History, and A Grammar of Oscan and Umbrian. They also have their own Latin Language Resources section, and a genealogy of the Roman gods and goddesses.

A belated introduction of myself.

Hi, I hadn't greeted any of you before I simply began writing irritating post after irritating post; I am David Walker. It is nice meeting all of you. I hope that the inordinate amount of time that I anticpate I will be spending here will be justifiable in some wise. I hope we, all of us sharing the same (or similar) esoteric pursuits, get along famously.

Translation difficulty, pars tertia.

I am trying to imagine a way of saying: "Although he may be evil, nevertheless I do not think I believe the punishment to be just." Here is what I have so far:<br /><br />Cvm is malvs sit, tamen non scio me puturum esse poenam dignam esse.<br /><br />Please tell me if this is not correct and, subsequently, tell me what would be correct if this is not. Thank you. ...
