Plato Explained In Koine Greek

Post by mahasacham » Tue Apr 10, 2018 4:13 am

I found a really cool channel (in my own opinion) on youtube that has really improved my auditory comprehension of Ancient Greek as well as my vocabulary:

This video in particular is pretty cool:

ὁ τοῦ Χριστοφόρου Ρίκω διάδοχος οὗτός ἐστιν. ἐκ γὰρ αὐτοῦ ἔμαθε καὶ ὁμοίως αὐτῷ διδάσκει.
οὐ μανθάνω γράφειν, ἀλλὰ γράφω τοῦ μαθεῖν.

This is really cool! The videos of him teaching full classes in Greek are wild... it looks like a lot of fun to learn that way. I'm curious about what people here think about his pronunciation. In particular, his circumflexes seem extremely subtle to me, but maybe I've just been exaggerating when I say them?

I like it very much. It is comprehensible, euphonic and close to historically accurate.
