aedificata sunt typo error?

I know the translation but in the book I am reading the last a has a macron which would mean ablative first declension so am I correct in assuming this is a typo?

Regarding John 8:58

Koine Greek And Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek



Regarding John 8:58

εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Ἰησοῦς Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, πρὶν Ἀβραὰμ γενέσθαι ἐγὼ εἰμί.

Numeral adverbs beyond 100

Salvete!

I am trying to create a javascript which lets me create numeral adverbs (and cardinal numbers) from 1-999. It works for the cardinal numbers 1-999 and numeral adverbs 1-99, 100, 200, etc. But I do not know how to construct numeral adverbs beyond 100.

How to translate: a room 10' x 10'

Salvete,

I am wondering how to translate the following sentence:
You entered a small room 10' x 10'.

Of course, one might write:
Conclave parvum, quod in longitudinem 10 pedes et in latitudinem 10 pedes patet, intravisti.

Is there something more compact ...

Iliad16 and interpolations

Homeric Greek and Pharr's Homeric Greek - A Book For Beginners



Iliad16 and interpolations

Ecloga I

Ecloga I

Or perhaps Eclogae I-II, to get a bit more experience before returning to Catiline. I'm not having too much trouble yet -- I've read the first five lines, can scan them properly, and mostly make sense of the text -- but I'm probably going to make a thread ...
