In 1988 I took an incredibly intense Attic Greek class; by the end we had read Plato's *Ion* and Euripedes *Medea*. I thought I was going to write a philosophy thesis with my new-found Greek, but my life went otherwise.
I'm trying to get my skills back, and I want them to stick this time. I'm working from the Mastronarde "Introduction to Attic Greek" text, which doesn't seem much mentioned here, but which is working for me... but to the point...
I'm getting a little jumpy. I really want to start reading as soon as possible. I remember about 70% of my Greek, which is not enough to jump back into the *Ion*, but enough that I'm very impatient to at least stumble through a text. Any recommendations for what to bite off first? I don't need to be able to read quickly; but if every clause stumps me, I'll probably not enjoy it.
