Help with Sapphic proper names

Hello. I do not have any background in Greek, but I am hoping someone can help me approximate a reasonable guess at some proper nouns in an English sapphic poetry translation. These names don't seem to appear in any conventional pronunciation guides, but my guess is that someone with some knowledge of Greek naming conventions can easily guess how they are pronounced.

Unfortunately, I am not that person ... ...

Horace, Epistles, vol.1, iii, lines 15 ff.

Context: the poet is gently mocking Celsus, who seems to be too imitative of already published poets.

quid mihi Celsus agit? monitus multumque monendus
privatas ut quaerat opes et tangere vitet
scripta Palatinus quaecumque recepit Apollo
ne, si forte suas repetitum venerit olim
grex avium plumas, moveat cornicula risum
furtivis nudatata coloribus.


Translation:

And what is my Celsus up to? Already warned, and deserving further warning
that he should ...

verb denuntio

Does this verb take the dative? I am translating a sentence which has this verb coupled with a dative object but I find no reference that this is indeed a dative verb.

Ancient Athens – Modern India parallels (Murder of Eratosthe

This quote "Families are more willing to have the stigma of rape rather than having the stigma of their daughter choosing her own sex or life partner,"  from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38796457 reminded me of Euphiletos claim that seducers were worse than rapists:

Euphiletos wrote:The assumption is that those who achieve their aims by force are hated by those they have violated, while seducers so corrupt the souls of their victims that they ...

Far into the early spring night Ben-Hur and his friends debate when and how Jesus will proclaim himself king of the Jews. Then, just as Ben-Hur is about to return to his army, a messenger arrives.

Primo autem vere in serum noctis Benhur et amici disputant quando ac quomodo Jesus se regem Judæorum pronuntiaturus sit. Deinde, Benhur jam ad exercitum revertente, nuntius pervenit.

scanning & pronouncing an elision in Horace

Context: going back through the Epistles, vol. 1 to find points I overlooked the first time through.

Horace, Epistles, 1.1, ln 4

non eadem est aetas, non mens. Veianius armis


How I scanned it: DSSSDS

non ea/dem est ae/tas, non/mens Ve/ianius armis

eadem: at first I wanted to read eadem as the adverb, but Lewis and Short show this adverb to be pronounced eādem, and I couldn't make this fit the meter. So I ...

[Unified Topic] definitions of the authent- words

It may seem rather audacious of me to question the work of such auspicious scholars as Strong, Thayer, Liddell, Scott. Jones, MacKenzie, Vine et.al., yet what they have provided has not always aided a straightforward or semantically homogenous understanding of the uses and meanings of these words. In fact, the semantic family with the authent- stem have become notoriously difficult to rationalise across the range of literature which contain them.

Most lexica are honest enough ...

What advanced Latin grammars or textbooks are available?

Hi!

I have gone through Wheelock's and have translated Cicero's first speech against Catiline with help from Maclardy's Completely Parsed Cicero. Are there any more advanced textbooks I can go through to expand my Latin? I am interested in exploring poetry (Virgil, Ovid) or prose (J. Caesar, Livy) but haven't been able to find many resources except for Latin "readers" like Maclardy's.

Thanks for help!
