My New Blog: Latin & Greek Aids, Bible Studies, Et Cetera

χαιρετε εταιροι!-salvete, sodales!-Hello, friends/members!

I haven't posted as much here as on B-Greek, but plan to do more this year.

After being away from blogging for several years, I've started a new Biblical studies blog, Let Ancient Voices Speak, which will feature Bible studies on various topics from a Christian perspective, sermons, poetry, ancient language aids (including Greek and Latin) and my own Bible version.

An inscribed stele near the acropolis of Athens

A friend of mine visiting Athens sent this photo. You will have guessed which particular detail caught his attention. I've tried to decipher the inscription, but I haven't quite got it. Here's my best shot:

Diogenes Laertius 9.[13]

I would welcome anyone's opinion on the questions I have about the following passage from Diogenes Laertius' biographical sketch of the enigmatic Ephesian philosopher Heraclitus. The passage is from a letter (to us moderns, clearly bogus) from the Persian king Darius to Heraclitus.

Dareios to Herakleitos.

καταβέβλησαι λόγον περὶ φύσεως δυσνόητόν τε καὶ δυσεξήγητον. ἔν τισι μὲν οὖν ἑρμηνευόμενος κατὰ λέξιν σὴν δοκεῖ δύναμίν τινα περιέχειν θεωρίας κόσμου τε τοῦ σύμπαντος καὶ τῶν ἐν τούτῳ ...

abbreviation for "fragment"

Greetings,

Apologies in advance for the rudimentary question. I've noticed different scholars using "fr." and "F" as abbreviations for fragments. Are there conventions for which to use for which ancient authors/types of fragments, or is it a matter of picking one and staying consistent? In the case of "F" how do you make it plural (for "fr." I've seen "frr.")?

Many thanks for shedding light!

Biblical Greek text N A G D

Hi, I'm new to the board.

I am self-taught in Latin using the Oxford Course which uses N V A G D A case orders, so I am looking for a Biblical Greek text that uses N A G D - I don't think I can adapt to the N G D A that I am seeing elsewhere.

Can anyone recommend a good text that uses N A G D?

Thanks.

Acquiring communicative competence

Hello, I am an undergraduate of Classics and would like to know whether there exists any kind of dictionary, besides Liddell and Scott, which does not only tell the translation, but also says the sense that a certain word had in the past, so that I can use words more appropriately, or not. And is there any kind of dictionary of colocations?

As you may notice, I am eager to both compose and speak Ancient ...

Epitaphs, memorial phrases

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for typical phrases which are said when commemorating a dead person, like epitaphs. Are there any known greek phrases? I don't know where to search, but maybe you know some literature hints or are sufficiently fluent in ancient greek to come up with your own suggestions. I would be also interested to have translations of the latin "in memoriam" or "requiescat in pace" into greek. But just state everything which ...
