Were the degrees cancelled at a caesar's death?

One passage from the Talmud says to wait patiently, because the degrees of the Caesar would be cancelled at his death. Is tgat an historically accurate statement under Roman law?

Archimedes said, "Eureka!" Latin Version?

Greetings All,

I was gonna include in the title of this post - "But the Romans said,...?"
But I knew someone would quip, "You're a dead man, Archie!"
I am curious if the Romans had a similar phrase for such exclamations?

Hope you can help,

Hey! How come my name isn't a jolly candy color?

Really, I just want to ask a couple of trivia questions about the board and its displays:

1. How come my name isn't a bright, jolly, candy color?

2. How come those round texty things beside every header are black? - was it blue? Or even red?

3. How come some have the little snazzy red star? (I'm guessing 'cause I started the thread - shucks).

4. Really baffling - How come sometimes the texty ...

Introducing new member Akalovid


My name is Angelos. I grew up on mount ΠΗΛΙΟΝ and lived there until coming of age. I had some education in Ancient Greek, albeit not the profoundest kind, because in the ΛΥΚΕΙΟΝ I chose the ΘΕΤΙΚΗ ΚΑΤΕΥΘΥΝΣΗ to become a physicist.

Then I went to Germany to study astrophysics. I took a lot of classics with me, but my studies really challenged me, so I neglected my Ancient Greek and eventually forgot a ...

Why ἐφ᾽ οἷς ἠδικημένῳ μοι συνῄδει

In the second paragraph of his Meidias Demosthenes says:

ἐφ᾽ οἷς ἠδικημένῳ μοι συνῄδει (~in which they knew me to have been wronged)
Why is it not ἠδικημένoν?

In the same work Demosthenes later says:
νυνὶ δὲ τοσαῦτ᾽ ἐστὶ τἄλλ᾽ ἃ πολλοὺς ὑμῶν ἠδίκησεν

Hello - I'm new here.

Hello to All,

I'm new here, and during my registration, I was directed to post about myself, so here we all are. :-)

I don't know anything about Latin or Greek, although I was just beginning to take up the study of Koine Greek when I ran into more than one reference that led me to believe that by studying Classical Greek I would also be able ...
