This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.

ΓΕΛΟΙΟΝ

ἀνὴρ πρὸς τὸ ἐν δελφοῖς χρηστήριον ἔβη χρῄζων σοφίας διότι ὁ ἑαυτοῦ βίος χαλεπός ἦν καὶ οὐκ οἴδεν ἃ πράττειν. ὁράω μέγαν ποταμὸν, ἔφη τὸ χρηστήριον, μετὰ τὴν τελευτὴν τῆς ὁδοῦ ἣ πρὸς τῇ οἰκίᾳ σου ἔρχεται. χρὴ λούεσθαι σεαυτὸν ἐν τοῦτῳ τῷ ποταμῷ διὰ τῆν πᾶσαν ἡμέραν. τῇ ἐπειδῇ ἕῳ, ὁ ἀνὴρ ἐκ τῆς οἰκίας διὰ τὴν ὁδὸν ἔβη καὶ τὸν ποταμὸν ἐζήτει. τέλος, ἐν τῇ τελευτῇ τῆς ὁδοῦ, δύο μεγάλους ποταμοὺς ηὗρεν. ἔλεξεν οὖν ὥδε ·

πότερος ποταμός;

Edited to convert to polytonic (it is not listed in my WIndows regional settings :roll: so I had to rewrite part of my Greek Unicode utility to include it) and to fix an error with ποταμός which is not neuter as I misremembered. :oops:

I wasn't sure how to express the concept of "beyond the end of the road" so I put μετὰ with an accusative for "after".

OK time for me to get back to the textbooks παύσουσα ἁμαρτάνειν. :D
