autos tetartos elthen

On page 257 of Thraymachus the sentence, "au)to\j te/tartoj h]lqen." is translated as, "he came with three others".

Shouldn't that sentence mean, "he came fourth"?

EDIT: Spelling

Am I a spammer?

So here’s the story. I sign up for this language exchange program: http://www.mylanguageexchange.com

Then I get this email from this girl saying she is willing to help me. I reply and say thank you. Since she is a local person, I asked if she wanted to help me with French through email or in person.

Because the barbarians are coming today.


Now that the reasons -- WMD, Iraq/al-Qaeda link -- for going to war against Iraq have been completely discredited, having in the process WASTED so many lives (904 poor American boys killed and counting, thousands seriously burned and missing limbs; tens of thousands of Iraqis killed, mostly civilians), the question that remains is who is next on the kill list for the Bush admnistration. Will it be Iran? North Korea? How about Venezuela and ...

Finding actual greek-language books

A couple of months ago, I downloaded William W. Goodwin's First Four Books of Xenophon's Anabasis, liked it, but I found it inconvenient to read on my computer (and I didn't want to print it).

So, I bought a used copy on line for about $10, and have been very happy with it.

But here's a question: does anyone know of a way to search for booksellers who have greek-language books in stock? I haven't ...

Help with translation

o(i pa/lai sofoi\ ou)k apoqnh/skousin a)lla\ paideusin a)ei/

First of all, did the above go through and, if so, does the translation read:

The wise ones of long ago have not died but they always teach.

I should say that I am using a book called Ancient Greek: A New Approach

Sallust's View on Human Nature...

My Latin teacher has plunged us right into the 38 Latin Stories, and I'm having trouble with the Sallust (64-65)..I know requests for long translations are frowned upon & rightly so..but I wanted to know if any kind soul could tell me how my translation measured up against theirs. He is, so far, not my favorite writer...but you have to give them all a try I suppose.. :wink: ...
