I noticed something interesting about one of the grave markers. It consisted of two lines of dactyllic hexameter, and a third line identifying the sculptor; but the first line was written from right-to-left, the second line started at the left side and ran back to the ...

Instrumental vs Ablative

Hi all,

I'm a student of Latin, and I have decided to do some study of Anglo-Saxon for fun and diversion. I notice there is a case called the instrumental case in Anglo-Saxon.
