greek fonts

I'm looking for a cool greek font for a particular purpose, and want to check out as many as possible. I already have the following fonts:

Spionic (of course)
GraecaII
PYLH

and possibly a couple of other common ones on my other computer.

What else does everyone suggest? Free or really cheap is best. I'd kinda like one that is a little scripty, like handwriting. Ideas?

Aristotle's Categories

This is the only site I've found so far that has a copy of The Categories in Greek on it. There are also other Greek writers from the classical to the modern period. You need to download the pylh font for it. http://www.pe.sch.gr/books/

principle parts

Are there any sort of patterns for the 3rd and 4th principal parts of the 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io conjugations?

laudo, laudare, laudavi, laudatum - 1st conjuation verbs all follow this model. Is there anything to keep in mind for 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io?

Or do you just have to memorize each principal part set for each and every verb?

Thanks,
Robbie Moran

Now that's a first for Amazon

When I order books from Amazon I simply assume that the classics titles I'm ordering are going to be delayed, and that any other more current titles will be on my doorstep in a few days.

However, from my order yesterday, the OCT Pindar has already shipped, but the quite recent "The New Humanists: Science at the Edge" has been delayed two weeks.

Amazing.

A Quick Translation Attempt

I'm trying to translate this into Latin:

"Since that day when Marius the Great defeated the Dragon of Ravenna, its spirit has ever protected our family."

Is this correct?

Ab die ipso ubi Marius Magnus Serpentum Ravennae vicerat, eius spiritus familiam nostram semper protexit.

Are there other, perhaps better ways to say "since"? or clearer word orders?

Salvete!

Salvete, amici!

I was overjoyed when I discovered this website and its amazing forum. I love languages, but I just started Latin this past semester. Knowing Italian and German, Latin seems a beauteous synthesis of the two in some ways, bearing the Romantic loveliness of Italian, and yet retaining the delightful complexity of grammar as is also possessed by German. And yet it's a completely different tongue, with its own idiosyncrasies and organizations like nothing ...

Iliad 1:161

A few times I have been alerted to the fact that the dative case can show possession.
When I was reading Iliad 1:161, I Thought; "Aha! I know why moi is dative, it is a prize to me, ie; my prize.
The footnote in Pharr however indicates that the dative is to show that the thing is done to its (moi) disadvantage or advantage.
Here is the line: kai\ dh/ moi ge/raj au)to\j a)fairh/sesqai a)peilei=j, ...

the form "epistasthai"

I am wondering if this form can possibly be aorist infinitive middle of "ephiste^mi" in a first century or later text. The grammar books say that "histe^mi" does not have a second aorist middle form. Yet Perseus identifies one meaning of both "stasthai" and "epistasthai" as aorist infinitive middle of "ephiste^mi". Is this a logistics glitch, or a true fact? Thanks in advance for any help.
