Help me with Plato's Apology!

Postby GreekOut » Tue Jan 31, 2012 9:39 am

Hello everybody, I'm trying to translate Plato's apology, what I want to do is go word by word and write out it's grammatical function + anything really interesting about it.

Anyway, I would post each blog here but the format changes and it would just be a pain; so instead I'm just going to post one section at a time, and if you know anything interesting about it, please tell me

ὅτι μὲν ὑμεῖς, ὦ ἄνδρες Ἀθηναῖοι, πεπόνθατε ὑπὸ τῶν ἐμῶν κατηγόρων, οὐκ οἶδα: ἐγὼ δ᾽ οὖν καὶ αὐτὸς ὑπ᾽ αὐτῶν ὀλίγου ἐμαυτοῦ ἐπελαθόμην, οὕτω πιθανῶς ἔλεγον. καίτοι ἀληθές γε ὡς ἔπος εἰπεῖν οὐδὲν εἰρήκασιν. μάλιστα δὲ αὐτῶν ἓν ἐθαύμασα τῶν πολλῶν ὧν ἐψεύσαντο, τοῦτο ἐν ᾧ ἔλεγον ὡς χρῆν ὑμᾶς εὐλαβεῖσθαι μὴ ὑπ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐξαπατηθῆτε

Also, my blog is http://dailygreekout.blogspot.com/ if you want to help out.

Cheers!
