Cool Picture of OLD Latin!

A while back, William Annis introduced me to the Oxyrhynchus Papyri project, and I was digging around on the site yesterday. It linked off to a parent site, which contained yet more Oxyrhynchus papyri. In that part of the site was a page called "A Millenium of Documents", (http://www.csad.ox.ac.uk/POxy/VExhibiti ... ame_hi.htm), and that in turn, three lines from the top, has a picture of a Latin letter (Syneros to ...

Per Aroua Ad Astra

<br />I caught the beginning of an episode of "Buck Rogers", an old SciFi program, where you see a spaceship called Searcher. The name of the ship is on the outside, and directly beneath it, I noticed the words "per aroua ad astra" and thought it looked very much like Latin. Well I tried working it out:<br /><br />er = through<br />ad = to<br />astra = stars (ACC PL of astrum)<br /><br />I couldn't figure ...

hello to all

Um, I've never really done an online chat-forum thingy before, so I hope people will bear with me!<br />I'm a full-time political science major (I'm not becoming a lawyer!) and work part-time for a non-profit. I've studied Plato in translation for some years and have wanted to learn Greek. I was very pleased and excited to discover that this site existed! I go to a small liberal arts school in northern Idaho, so neither Greek ...

homeric formulas

hi guys,<br /><br />does anyone know where i could get a simple list of homeric formulas (grouped by length and case, eg masculine caesura to end: nominative; masculine caesura to end: genitive; &c &c).<br /><br />I saw a few random tables throughout Milman Parry's papers a few months ago in the Uni of Sydney library, but that book is never in anymore, and I don't have a library card there... Books in my uni's library ...

BLD Ex111 PtII Pg47 Irreg Adjs

<br />I'm trying to get a grasp on these irregular adjectives. Are my translations to Latin correct?<br /><br /><br />#2 Some towns are great and others are small.<br /> Alia oppida magna, alia parva sunt.<br /> Alia oppida magna sunt, alia parva.<br />(oppida magna=NOM PL)<br /><br />I wasn't sure in which position sunt should be. However for the next question, I placed the verb at the end which felt like the right thing to do. ...

introduction

hey! here is my Official Introduction Thread ;)<br /><br />my name is Holly and I am in the process of learning classical greek and latin... I'm still a beginner in both, and am teaching myself (or, attempting to ;).<br /><br />I do, however, have three years of formal study in Koine Greek, and have since kept up simply by reading on my own and with partners... nothing too in depth since my classes though.<br /><br ...

Latin "r"

I'm confused about the pronunciation of the Latin "r"-am I supposed to roll it, the way you do in French (bonjour, au revoir), or leave it short, the way you do in English (or, short), or does it matter? <br /><br />Keesa

Hello

Hello. <br /><br />I'm new here. My name is Keesa. <br /><br />I've been wading through Ancient Greek on my own for a couple of months now, and wanting to learn Latin "someday". (Maybe today!) I hope to study English and the Classics at Oxford University someday; for now, I'm still a high school student (homeschooled) here in America. (I'm also learning French and Spanish; I just like languages!)
