A NT Hapax...

Koine and Biblical and Medieval Greek

Mark 8:12 εἰ = if they think ..., there is another thing com

LLPSI Cap XLV

LLPSI Cap XLV

In LLPSI Part II Cap XLV Orberg (Livy) gives us an account of Tarquin's way to power:

Two questions:

1) Hospitia

Latinorum sibi maxime gentem conciliabat, ut peregrinis quoque opibus tutior inter cives esset; hospitia cum primoribus eorum iungebat...

Herodotus 3,9,2

οὗτος μὲν ὁ πιθανώτερος τῶν λόγων εἴρηται, δεῖ δὲ καὶ τὸν ἧσσον πιθανόν, ἐπεί γε δὴ λέγεται, ῥηθῆναι.
