Untranslated Greek & Latin texts

A while back, there was some discussion about "untranslated" Greek and Latin texts. Does anybody have any update on that topic? I would love to have a fairly interesting Greek (or Latin) text to work on. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Lesson 13-I might need a little review-haven't looked at the book for a while. It's very good for sharpening your skills though, I miss it. I hope a fairly slow pace is acceptable.
