BC/AD vs BCE/CE

Open Board



BC/AD vs BCE/CE

I'm curious what everyone thinks about this topic. I've noticed that it can be a very heated subject on wikipedia articles. My personal view is that the BC/AD system is better on practical grounds: 1) the uniformity of two characters in each 2) easier to distinguish at ...

Latin influence in Mark's Gospel

Koine Greek And Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek



Latin influence in Mark's Gospel

This is something I just stumbled upon and never heard about before: http://ntresources.com/blog/?p=1205 The argument is that the author of Mark may have spoken Latin or at least his Greek was influenced by Latin idiom. I've noticed the loanwords ...

αὐτό as αὐτόν

Learning Greek



αὐτό as αὐτόν

Avoiding the original thread. The LSJ says that αὐτό is sometimes written αὐτόν and gives Leg. Gort. 3.4 as a reference. This is short for Leges Gortynensium (GDI 4991, Schwyzer 179). GDI is Sammlung der griechischen Dialekt-Inschriften. Inscription 4991 is here: https://books.google.com/books?id=_3IsA ... ...

Archilochus/ Enualios

Learning Greek



Archilochus/ Enualios

First fragment, by Archilochus, in Cambell's Greek Lyric Poetry:

Εἰμὶ δ' ἐγὼ θεράπων μὲν Ἐνυαλίοιο ἄνακτος,
καὶ Μουσέων ἐρατὸν δῶρον ἐπιστάμενος.

Am I right in assuming King Enualios/ Enyalius is the god of war Ares? I think I came across this name in the Iliad. However I'm a ...

forms of qui

Learning Latin



forms of qui

The book that I am using says a form of qui is used at the beginning of a sentence in order to "tie the sentence more closely to the one preceding" but offers no further explanation. Is it correct in this case to observe the grammatical rules ...

Reading manuscripts

Is it worthwhile to spend time with this manuscript until I get comfortable with the script?

http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/FullDispla ... d_MS_11884

I can read it, but slowly. I can't tell how much of that is the difficulty of an unknown script or poor handwriting. ...

Result clauses

Result clauses

I'm still struggling with result clauses. This is from De Bello Gallico (possibly abridged, I'm not sure)

Quae cum appropinquarent Britanniae et ex castris viderentur, tanta tempestas subito orta est, ut nulla earum cursum tenere posset, sed aliae eodem unde erant profectae referrentur, aliae ad inferiorem partem insulae, ...

Calypso to Hermes, ε 87 ff.:
τίπτε μοι, Ἑρμεία χρυσόρραπι, εἰλήλουθας,
αἰδοῖός τε φίλος τε; πάρος γε μὲν οὔ τι θαμίζεις.
αὔδα ὅ τι φρονέεις· τελέσαι δέ με θυμὸς ἄνωγεν,
εἰ δύναμαι τελέσαι γε καὶ εἰ τετελεσμένον ἐστίν.

Hainsworth, the Oxford commentary to the Odyssey:
