Good job ! Only minor inaccuracies :

1. Ï„á½°Ï‚ Ï„Ï￾á½±Ï€ÎµÎ¶á¾±Ï‚ Î»á½»Î¿Î¼ÎµÎ½.
Ï„Ï￾Î±Ï€á½³Î¶Î±Ï‚ accent : see paradigms. It is because the accent cannot go backwards farther than the 3rd "short beat" (long alpha = Two beats, so the epsilon is the 3rd beat from the end backwards)

2. Î¿á½￾ Ï„á½°Ï‚ á¼￾Î¼Î±Î¾á¾±Ï‚ á¼￾Ï￾Ï€á½±Î¶Î¿Ï…ÏƒÎ¹.
Ï„á½°Ï‚ á¼￾Î¼á½±Î¾á¾±Ï‚ (accent) Î¿á½￾Ï‡ á¼￾Ï￾Ï€á½±Î¶Î¿Ï…ÏƒÎ¹Î½ (nu movable) would be more natural.

3. Î±á¼± Î³á½³Ï†á¿¡Ï￾Î±Î¹ Î¼Î±ÎºÏ￾Î±Î¹ ÎºÎ±Î¹ ÏƒÏ„ÎµÎ½Î±Î¹ á¼”ÏƒÎ±Î½.
á¼¦ÏƒÎ±Î½ with an eta

4. Ï„á½±Ï‚ Î¼á½±Ï‡Î±Î¹Ï￾á¾±Ï‚ á¼￾Î½ á¼…Î¼Î±Î¾á¿ƒ á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹Î½Í¾
Î¼Î±Ï‡Î±á½·Ï￾á¾±Ï‚ accent again á¼￾Î¼á½±Î¾á¿ƒ accent á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹ NO nu movable here !

5. Î¿á½» Ï„á½°Ï‚ Ï†Ï…Î»Î±Îºá¾±Ï‚ ÎµÎº Îºá½½Î¼Î·Ï‚ Îµá¼°Ï‚ Î¸á½±Î»Î±Ï„Ï„Î±Î½ á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹Ï‚.
á¼￾Îº don't forget the breathing á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹ is the 3rd person singular.

(Note : I say nothing about missing accents)

Thanks for your help with these - it is much appreciated. I hope to get some more done over the Christmas break.

Far worse than Greek next week will be trying to see if I can still get into my wetsuit! An annual ritual accompanied by much pain and cries of horror - I can't have put on that much weight! At least I frighten away the Great White sharks that live near Adelaide.

I hope you all have a very happy Christmas and New Year!

Be careful : if you are right, you will rather attract them !

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

Hi!!

I have two quick questions about the last two sentences...

4. Ï„á½±Ï‚ Î¼á½±Ï‡Î±Î¹Ï￾á¾±Ï‚ á¼￾Î½ á¼…Î¼Î±Î¾á¿ƒ á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹Î½Í¾
isnt it better to use Îµá¼°Ï‚ instead of á¼￾Î½ to emphatise the inside location and the article since we are referring and specific wagon ?
4. Ï„á½°Ï‚ Î¼Î±Ï‡Î±á½·Ï￾á¾±Ï‚ Îµá¼°Ï‚ Ï„Î·Î½ á¼„Î¼Î±Î¾Î±Î½ á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹;

5. Î¿á½» Ï„á½°Ï‚ Ï†Ï…Î»Î±Îºá¾±Ï‚ ÎµÎº Îºá½½Î¼Î·Ï‚ Îµá¼°Ï‚ Î¸á½±Î»Î±Ï„Ï„Î±Î½ á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹Ï‚.
well, I little more difficult for me, it is better to add the article since we are talking about specific villages and sea? and á¼￾Îº isnt follow by genitive?
plus I think it would be better if we use á¼￾Ï€á½· instead of Îµá¼°Ï‚ to indicate the mouvent "over" and not "inside" the sea?
5. Ï„á½°Ï‚ Ï†Ï…Î»Î±Îºá¾±Ï‚ á¼￾Îº Ï„á¿¶Î½ ÎºÏ‰Î¼á¿¶Î½ á¼￾Ï€á½· Ï„á¿†Ï‚ Î¸á½±Î»Î±Ï„Ï„Î·Ï‚ Î¿á½￾Îº á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹.

I don't think so because the swords are carried on the wagon, thus here the swords don't come into the wagon, and Îµá¼°Ï‚ means rather "into", denoting a "entry".

Yes you are theoretically right ! However, even so, the sentence sounded Greek.

Hammurabi wrote: and á¼￾Îº isnt follow by genitive?

Îºá½½Î¼Î·Ï‚ is the genitive singular but you are right : the exercice called for a plural, thus ÎºÏ‰Î¼á¿¶Î½ !

Hammurabi wrote:plus I think it would be better if we use á¼￾Ï€á½· instead of Îµá¼°Ï‚ to indicate the mouvent "over" and not "inside" the sea?
5. Ï„á½°Ï‚ Ï†Ï…Î»Î±Îºá¾±Ï‚ á¼￾Îº Ï„á¿¶Î½ ÎºÏ‰Î¼á¿¶Î½ á¼￾Ï€á½· Ï„á¿†Ï‚ Î¸á½±Î»Î±Ï„Ï„Î·Ï‚ Î¿á½￾Îº á¼„Î³ÎµÎ¹.

I don't think so, because Îµá¼°Ï‚ here is the fitting word for "towards". á¼￾Ï€á½· Ï„á¿†Ï‚ Î¸á½±Î»Î±Ï„Ï„Î·Ï‚ (with genitive) would mean "over the sea" (without movment).
á¼￾Ï€á½¶ Ï„á½´Î½ Î¸Î¬Î»Î±Ï„Ï„Î±Î½ with accusative would not be wrong but could easily denote hostility or be unnecessarily accurate ("up to the seashore")
