Tyria

Postby pmda » Thu Feb 21, 2013 6:57 am

Here are two words which Orberg explains as follows:

Tyrus, -i (f): regio Syriae maritima; incolae: Phoenices, -um (m)
Regnum autem Tyri habebat frater Didonis Pygmalion, rex impius atque scelestus.

Tyrii, -orum (m) < Tyrus, -i (f): regio Syriae maritima; incolae: Phoenices, -um (m)


BUT...then I find the phrase: ' At in regia magnificum convivium apparatur: triclinium splendide ornatur, veste picta purpuraque Tyria sternuntur lecti, mensae vasis argenteis atque aureis teguntur.

What does 'Tyria' mean here: Does Tyrus, -i (f) the region, have Tyria in the ablative...?

Tyrus (f) = noun // nomen
Tyrius -a -um = adjective//adjectivum
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
