Iliad 1:63

The second half of Iliad 1:63 reads kai\ ga/r t' o)/nar e(k Dio/j e)stin,<br />- for also a dream is from Zeus,-<br />I don't understand why there is a KAI and a TE in this line.<br />It is hard to translate both words. Something like this may be possible - for even a dream is from Zeus too,-<br />Is this more or less the force of these two words in this line?<br />Thank you.<br />Bert.

Ancient Greek music

This site is excellent http://www.oeaw.ac.at/kal/agm/<br />Someone has already mentioned a part of this site here, the Classical pronunciation I think, but not the music :). Just listen to "Demodokos' song about Ares and Aphrodite", played on the four-stringed phorminx, under the Homeric singing section. It's quite mysterious :) I wish I knew Greek ...

Learning Greek- New Testament or Classical?

I am considering learning ancient greek, with the ultimate goal of being able to tackle the works of the well-known greek writers (Plato, the playwrights, and possibly Aristotle)<br />I have heard that New Testament Greek is far less complicated than the Attic Dialect used by later authors.<br />I have never read the New Testament, and would be interested to read it in its original language.<br />If I were to learn New Testament Greek first, how ...

H&Q anyone?

May I ask who else here is working from Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course, and how far you've reached? <br /><br />I've just finished Unit 8 myself, but am rather hoping that I can get through the rest of it with a 'classmate' or two. :)

Episcopus going to Oxford

Not that it's very important but it's cool anyhow. I thought that this was going a little off-topic.<br /><br />However for me I must learn faster. I am going on a "elite pupils [from deprived area!)" (but we're not really elite) visit to Oxford University. It is mainly à faire avec English with the English head's being very zealous; however I plan to run off and lose myself in normal fashion to the Latin place. ...

Virent Ova! Viret Perna!!

http://www.salon.com/ent/wire/2003/09/2 ... index.html<br /><br />NEW YORK (AP) --"Green Eggs and Ham" is an easy read. After all, the late Theodore Geisel, belovedly known as Dr. Seuss, wrote it after his editor challenged him to do a book in just 50 words.<br /><br />But have you tried to read it in Latin?<br /><br />Retitled "Virent Ova! Viret Perna!!" the Seuss classic has been rendered into Latin by Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers Inc. ...

Earthquake in Japan

I'm really glad to hear that not too many people were seriously hurt; their buildings must be really stable to survive such a quake. <br />My own experiences with this natural disaster are very sad ones indeed and hearing of earthquakes in the news always brings back memories.

H&Q Unit 2

Could someone look over these English to Greek translations for me, please? I'm particularly interested in getting the accents right. The themes for this unit were: Active Present, Imperfect, Future, and Aorist indicative tenses, Active Present and Aorist infinitives, and subject-verb agreement.<br /><br />1. You used to send gifts from the market place to the gods of the island.<br />2. Did you (pl.) order Homer to free the five men in the house or not?<br ...

Going English

Tentatively I'll be in England this December - around London mostly, although (if I'm called in for interview) I'd have a week or so in Oxford... anyway, I was wondering if anyone else here might be in town around then - perhaps we could meet up? ;)
