help with exercises *9/6*

I was just working on some Greek-English exercises and I came across this:
toi=n phgai=n
it's in the dual, according to my charts. Yet isn't dual used for nouns that come in pairs like eyes, ears, nostrils, shoes, etc.?
so it would translate into "of/to the two-fountains"

Also, in an English-Greek exercise, would "the two-fountains" be tw= phga/?

Hehe, I'm starting slow but I'm learning fast!

PS-I'm using a textkit book called "A First Greek ...

Hello all,

I have been reading the excellent posts on this website for a spell and thought I should register and introduce myself. I am a Latin enthusiast with a lot more to learn. I'm working through Wheelock now and I may switch to the CUNY Intensive Latin course book soon. (I have read the long thread about the pros and cons of both!)

Loeb Classical Library...suggestions needed!

After searching in vain for the better part of two years I finally located a bookstore in Toronto that regularly carries Loeb's. I was estatic until I started adding up totals and realized that I'd either have to become a millionaire or selectively choose which to purchase. I believe there are close to 500 titles currently available and sadly I only own four.

May I ask why?

Why doesn't Greek have an ablative case? This is going to be quite a challenge indeed, learning this language. :?

using abhinc

I'm confused about the correct way to say 'three days ago'. My Longmans' book says abhinc plus accusative. N&H also shows an example with abhinc followed by the accusative: 'three days ago - abhinc tres dies' but in the key to the exercises, the time is in the ablative: (36.9)'I saw my friend at Carthage three months ago - Tribus abhinc mensibus Carthagini meum amicum vidi'
Should the time be ablative or accusative?
