Garriamus igitur!

The Agora

Garriamus igitur!

...incipientes sumus. :lol:

Confabulemur Latine amoena etsi fatua, et rumores senum severiorum errataque nostra gravissima aestimemus, umm, quisquiliarum.

Nonne cottidie velimus frui lingua Latina, etsi adhuc inhabilis simus? Sic saltem spero. Solum desipite, sodales!

So, let's chat, shall we? Let's ...

a typo (?) in Dickey

Learning Greek

a typo (?) in Dickey

Am wondering whether I am missing something or the accented enclitic here is a typo:
τοῖς παρὰ τῷ δικαστῇ ἐστ ξένος Μαραθῶνι. (p.231)
Dickey herself says (p.5): "If the preceding word has a circumflex on the ultima, there is no change. Thus...ἀγαθῶν τινων."

On-Line Latin College Degree

I am considering an attempt at obtaining an on-line college degree in Latin and I am looking for recommendations regarding schools.
I can't get in, let alone afford any of the big name colleges, but would like to 'graduate' from a relatively well known university.
Also, ...

A greek verse inscription

Homeric Greek and Early Greek Poetry



A greek verse inscription

This is too tough for me:

Image

My best attempt at a transcription (assuming boustrophedon):

εδομεψοικγεϝομαπθιτονα.ϝει
εαριμτομεθεκεηεραιτερηομκαικ
ταμλεγαθανδιαιδδαεε.μφαϙ

Reversed:

ιεϝ.ανοτιθπαμοϝεγκιοψεμοδε
κιακμοηρετιαρεηεκεθεμοτμιραε
ϙαφμ.εεαδδιαιδναθαγελματ

Neither direction makes any sense to me, I'm afraid.

πολυπειρία

Learning Greek



πολυπειρία

Falsely accused of eating two of his master's figs, Aesop purges himself in front of everyone to prove himself innocent.

1.3 διὰ δὲ τῆς πολυπειρίας δοὺς ἀπόδειξιν (Vita Aesopi G).

LSJ lists "great experience" as the gloss for πολυπειρία, which confused me, as it makes it look like something ...

Anyone have Kalos language software?

I still occasionally use the Kalos Greek software if I'm having trouble figuring out what verb form I'm looking at. Unfortunately, my computer died and the program is no longer hosted by the creator. Does anyone on the site have a copy of the program ...

Reading exercise from Moss's First Greek Reader

Hi there, I'm currently working my way through Charles Moss's A First Greek Reader. I have completed now 32 out of 42 chapters of Mastronarde's 1st edition of Introduction to Attic Greek, and I think I should start getting some reading practice. I ...

Learning Greek



the force of ἄν in Plato's Apology 20 e5

οὐ γὰρ ἐμὸν ἐρῶ τὸν λόγον ὃν ἂν λέγω--
The context suggests that it is what Smyth calls anticipatory (futural) subjunctive, except that he is calls it "Homeric" (section 1810) and is rather vague about its use in Attic.
Thanks in ...

I do like Chambers The Greek War of Independence but it is too hard to use without a dictionary. Hence I have started to put a version online with some images which hopefully will help a reader with vocabulary. The trickiest idioms ...
