Reading Material after Xenophon?

I'm teaching myself, and I've gotten to where I can read Xenophon pretty well. (Many negative comments on the Anabasis have been stated here but I'm enjoying it quite a lot).<br /><br />Who would be some good authors to try and read next?<br /><br />I was recommended Lysias but I read some on Perseus and found it extremely difficult (It seems to require much specific knowledge about athenian courts, and also because you're getting one ...

This sentence is driving me nuts

From Nepos' Life of Timoleon 2.2<br /><br />Cum interficere posset, noluit tutoque ut Corinthum perveniret effecit, quod utrorumque Dionysiorum opibus Corinthii saepe adiuti fuerant, cuius benignitatis memoriam volebat exstare, eamque praeclaram victoriam ducebat in qua plus esset clementiae quam crudelitatis; postremo ut non solum auribus acciperetur, sed etiam oculis cerneretur quem ex quanto regno ad quam fortunam detulisset.<br /><br />What tense is adiuti fuerant?<br />What are the antecedents of cuius and qua?<br />Why is ...

Hello, everyone

My name is Bingley and I am sinking back into my ancient world addiction. <br /><br />I studied Latin and Greek to A Level at school, but seem to have forgotten most of what I ever knew. I'm slowly piecing the scattered fragments of knowledge back again, and am glad to have found a site where I can meet like-minded people.

May I introduce myself?

Skylax omnibus salutem plurimam dicit.<br /><br />As you see, what matters in my case is the use of the English language. But it is an opportunity for me to train a little and for you to exercise skills in linguistic deciphering.<br /><br />As a former Greek and Latin teacher, I spend years teaching rudiments of both languages to French-speaking children in Liege, in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Now I'm retired, living in a green ...

In Need of a Brush-Up

I studied Greek and Latin at school, but that was (agh-hmm) years ago now, and I've found that I've forgotten a lot. Of the books available on this site, which would you most recommend for a brush-up, rather than starting from scratch?

Katharos=pure in Greek, what about in Latin?

Got this from skylax<br /><br />"The original Greek form is Aikaterine (Ekaterini), a word of obscure etymology, which became Katerina.<br />The name became then Catharina in Latin because the Latin-speaking people believed that the name derived from the Greek "katharos", meaning "pure".<br /><br />What would be the best word for pure to match this in Latin? sanctus, castus?<br />
