Re: Conventiculum Europense

The "Centro Nazionale di Studi Classici Grecolatinovivo" hosted two bidua this year, the most recent one last weekend. They have schools throughout north Italy but hold their conventiculum style events in Florence. A triduum is in the works for late March 2020 (also promising spoken Greek). More inf...

Re: Ab urbe condita...

Like Matteo Rovere's film il Primo Re , which came out earlier this year (at least here in Italy), this series will be in proto-Latin. For the movie Rovere had a team from Sapienza Roma translate his script into a form of archaic Latin in order to accurately present the language spoken half a millen...

Re: TLGMarathon: Odyssey, resources

When it comes to Scholia, wouldn't Erbse, "Scholia" and van der Valk, "Researches" be a better option?
Not if you're reading Odyssey :wink:

Re: TLGMarathon: Odyssey, resources

Thanks for this! Now, I'm no expert when it comes to Homer, but one might add: The Making of the Odyssey/M. L. West; Oxford 2014 . The Loeb editions (HUP; 1998^2), and perhaps (though not so *modern*) Scholia Graeca in Homeri Odysseam ex Codicibus Aucta et Emendata/Gulielmus Dindorfius; Oxford, 1855 .

Re: iambic practice

This can’t be an accident. In fact I fancy that the last line should end not οὐδ᾿ ἁλίσκεται τέχνῃ but οὐδε τέχνῃ ἁλίσκεται, with the last two words slurred together (he is drunk, after all) and successfully achieving the triumphant close to the set of five. For reference, L. P. E. Parker (2007). Eu...

Re: Οίον το τοιούτον

Do you mean οἷον τὸ τοιόνδε, instead of τοιούτον? It occurs in Phae. 65b and Rep. 353d. Other than that I can't say whether it is a specifically Platonic idiom or not. It is, however, quite a useful way of elaborating on a presented argument. As for an ellipse, no. οἷον operates adverbially as an ac...

Re: Phaed 64e

I think this could be impersonal like you said (cf. LSJ III s.v. δύναμαι) or personal with an ellipse of the pronoun. Either way it still refers to the hypothetical φιλόσοφος referred to in this discussion. [Look back to 64d: φαίνεταί σοι φιλοσόφου ἀνδρὸς εἶναι κτλ. Picked up continually throughout....

Re: Phaed 61b ellipse of οτι

Here ὅτι follows the participle ἐννοήσας to introduce a kind of indirect statement. This indirect statement finishes in one of the sections you left out: ... ποεῖν μύθους, ἀλλ' οὐ λόγους , καὶ ... Here the regular adversative force of ἀλλά balances and closes the indirect statement. Accordingly we d...

Re: Looking for a memrise collaborator.

Hi there, I have finished the first chapter of your course and would gladly help with the editing in line with your two objectives. Rather than read through the entire course in one slog I would prefer to work through it at a learning pace with a correct-as-you-go approach. I have found this has wor...

Re: Classical Greek Recommended Word Processing Software

Regarding the original post - Does anyone have a recommendation for Classical Greek word processing software? - I might suggest the 'MultiKey' Add-in developed by Stefan Hagel. I use it occasionally (though polytonic keyboard is my default) since it has readily accessible digamma, koppa, and sampi. ...

An Introduction

Hi everyone, New member. My name is Nathaniel, I'm an Australian currently residing in Italy. I have studied both Greek and Latin at undergraduate level and am set to commence postgraduate studies later this year. My academic pursuits stick pretty closely to Greek tragedy, however I maintain a gener...
