face = fac ut?

Nepos' Life of Pausanias has this letter from Pausanias to Xerxes (2:3-4)

`Pausanias, dux Spartae, quos Byzantii ceperat, postquam propinquos tuos cognovit, tibi muneri misit seque tecum affinitate coniungi cupit. Quare, si tibi videtur, des ei filiam tuam nuptum. Id si feceris, et Spartam et ceteram Graeciam sub tuam potestatem se adiuvante te redacturum pollicetur. His de rebus si quid geri volueris, certum hominem ad eum mittas face, cum quo colloquatur.'

This word 'face' is ...

::pokes tentatively:: Salvete.

Nomen meus est...forget it. This is MyIlium. (Bleargh. Sounds like some kind of exotic disease.) I am strong on syntax but weak on vocab, and cursed with terrible lethargy (read: laziness). And, er, yeah...hi.

Great site, by the way. I wish I'd found it when I was slugging my way through Wheelock.

What poetry to read for a Greek beginner?

I've just finished J. W. White's First Greek Book and am about a quarter way into North and Hillard's Greek Prose Composition. I'd really like to start reading some poetry in Greek.

Being a little bit further in latin I've taken to Cattulus and find it quite do-able; I'm looking for something similar in Greek.

Recommendations anyone?

Is this not *cool*?!

Unix Sysadmin position - it requires you to go to Antarctica for the (southern) summer.

If only I didn't own a home...

Edit: I wonder how many books they'd let me take.

Why is the genitive & genus of every substantive indicat


Beeing a beginner in latin, I have some questions:
In my latin book, all substantives are presented in this way: puella,-ae (f), vinum, -i (n) etc. Isn't it redundant to specify the genus and genitive? Isn't it obvious from the ending what the genus and the genitive of the word are? Since all the books I've seen so far indicate them, there surely must be some importance to this information.

What exactly is the difference between the normal imperatives and the future imperatives? And how do you form the future imperatives?
