Cornelius Nepos, Aristides: perfect infinitive issue

Cornelius Nepos, Aristides

Context: The Athenians banish Aristides

The problem: to study verb forms.

. . .exilio decem annorum multatus est. qui quidem cum intellegeret reprimi concitatam multitudinem non posse, cedensque animadvertisset quendam scribentem, ut patria pelleretur, quaesisse ab eo dicitur, quare id faceret aut quid Aristides commisisset, cur tanta poena dignus duceretur. cui ille respondit se ignorare Aristiden, sed sibi non placere, quod tam cupide laborasset, ut praeter ceteros Iustus appellaretur.

Dictionary of Latin synonyms?


can anyone recommend a (public domain) dictionary of Latin synonyms? There are quite a few out there (including the Döderlein at Project Gutenberg), and I am not quite sure which to use.

Comic based on the dialogue by Jakob Gretser: Mutatio Calami

Salvete! Our beloved bedwere introduced a set of lively dialogues in a wonderful grammer book written back in 17c to me as my potential project,

colloquia ista a Pontiano humanista conscripta ac Graece reddita

Completed version: with Greek-Latin side-by-side (311KB, click and the full sized picture opens)

which I found perfect to be put into comic strips so that hopefully some beginners might naturally be dragged into the flow of ...

First Conjugation Quizlet Flashcards

there are many sets of flashcards on Quizlet, but many are riddled with errors and/or are inconsistent. I made a set for amāre, with macrons, and with simple english translations, using the subjunctive translations from Bennett's grammar:


if you're searching from the quizlet app on a phone, just search for user "longchenpa" to find it. (I actually use the app "flashcards" on the iphone, but its not yet showing up in the quizlet search ...

Martial 2.8

Hello everybody :)

I would like to hear your opinion about this Martial's epigram:

Si qua uidebuntur chartis tibi, lector, in istis
siue obscura nimis siue latina parum,
non meus est error: nocuit librarius illis
dum properat uersus adnumerare tibi.
Quod si non illum sed me peccasse putabis,
5 tunc ego te credam cordis habere nihil.
'Ista tamen mala sunt.' Quasi nos manifesta negemus!
Haec mala sunt, ...

result clause, not indirect statement

Cornelius Nepos, "Themistocles"

I want to test my understanding of a grammar issue.

Nam cum pecunia publica, quae ex metallis redibat, largitione magistratuum quotannis interiret, ille persuasit populo, ut ea pecunia classis centum navium aedificaretur.

Rough translation:

Now when (before) the public income, which derived from mines, was used up every year by handouts to the citizens, he got the people to spend the money to build a fleet of one ...

P.Egerton 2

Found S. E. Porter in my local library yesterday. The probability of this happening is very low. But they also have a book by Michael Bird so it isn't impossible. Porter is currently dabbling in papyrology. He launches into a very dense argument for an early date for John's Gospel based in part on allusions to John in P.Egerton 2, a document that has been known since the 1930s. Porter's argument isn't overwhelmingly persuasive but ...

Missing pages in Rutherford's First Gammar Syntax

I'm new to textkit.
I've downloaded Rutherford's book here at textkit and noticed that some pages are missing, namely pages 19, 64 and 65.
Unfortunately, I can't post the link yet, as I'm a new member, but it seems like the only digital version of the book avaible is that made by textkit, wherein those pages are missing.
Does anyone has the missing pages?
Thank you!

Help with 'quia'

hi there, could you help me? I found this sentence in Jordani Bruni Opera Latine Conscripta:

De praefatione tenendae sunt quindecim rationes, quibus Alexandro studium rhetorices commendatur.
Harum 1...2...3.Quia indegnum est illum, qui in rebus gestis caeteros vincit et exsuperat, interdum sermone humilioribus et indignioribus cedere.
Now, after Quia the author used the accusative, but wouldn't it be better to use the nominative: Quia indegnus est ille, qui...? why the accusative?
Thank you for reading ...
