Re: ασιαμ

Thank you very much! I found this one nearby! Here is my very best guess: πανχρνίαμ which of course isn't a word. It possibly has the same typo as above, with a "μ" at the end instead of a "ν" maybe because the word is accusative and the writer is thinking in Latin, accusative words in which often e...

ασιαμ

Hello!

I am having trouble making out the Greek in the following passage:

I think it is two words, and that the second one is "ασιαμ," but I'm stumped overall and would appreciate elucidation if I merit any!

Sub nomine et appellatione...

I am having trouble figuring out this Greek word, in the image below. The first part looks like an alien to me, or a pair of scissors, but I am very eager to learn what it actually is! The word on the next line looks like "νεοπίςωμ" but that interpretation is of course absurd, and not a word in any ...

I am having trouble identifying part of this word:

Specifically the letter after the delta and before the omega, and what accent exactly is above the omega. I would appreciate any help!

Re: Word Indentification

I'm sure you're correct! I am new to Latin, and here did not detect that indirect statement business, where the "subject" of the statement (in this case "sensus nonnullos") is in the accusative case, and the verb is an infinitive. I am curious how you detected it! Here is another mystery for me, alo...

Re: Word Indentification

Or the first might be ποιητικὴ. If you give us some context we'll probably be able to tell. Here is the sentence with the first word: Descriptos animadverti tres Horizontes, Horizontem, inquam, temporis, et infinitae aeternitatis: Horizontem aeternitatis temporalis: Horizontem mundi super supremi, ...

Word Indentification

Hello! This is my first non-introductory post! I am translating a Latin manuscript that employs a Greek word now and again, but I am having trouble making out the letters as it is a photocopy of an old manuscript and I am quite unfamiliar with Greek. So far these two words (which I have isolated fro...

Introduction

Hello! I have joined this forum because I am translating Latin texts photocopied from old manuscripts. I am familiar enough with the Latin to at least make out the letters, but often the authors employ Greek as well, in smudgy, or alternative letters which baffle me greatly! I look forward to meetin...
