A Greek Inscription in Galilee

A Greek Inscription in Galilee

Postby RandallButh » June 9th, 2011, 9:48 am

I wasn't quite sure where to put this so I've chosen "other" to get things started.

Greek inscriptions provide data for seeing how ancient Greeks were using their own language.

There is some fun stuff in it that touches on several issues, and it is short and fairly straightforward.

That link is broken. Could you fix it?

Nice link :)

I want to bring in the Greek to this thread:

ΜΝΗΣΘΗ ΕΙΣ ΑΓΑΘΟΝ ΚΑΙ ΕΙΣ ΕΥΛΟΓΙΑΝ ΠΡΟΦΟΤΟΥΡΟΣ Ο ΜΙΖΟΤΕΡΟΣ ΕΠΟΙΗΣΕΝ ΤΗΝ ΣΤΟΑΝ ΤΑΥΤΗΝ ΤΟΥ ΑΓΙΟΥ ΤΟΠΟΥ ΕΥΛΟΓΙΑ ΑΥΤΩ

That is a good reading of the text, with one correction needed. The phrase in the middle is ΤΗΝ ΤΑΥΤΗΝ ‘this pillared meeting-room’, ‘stoa’

The thread concludes that the tile is reading something like:

member for good and for praise
the greater ??? did/made this 'pillared meeting-room' colonnade of the holy place
praise to him

You list 'the greater'. That fits with a new comment.
The grammar strikes a funny-bone in me.

I wanted to write more yesterday but because I am a newbie when I accidently hit the submit button I also then realised I can not edit and add more to my posts!! :lol:

I am certain that I wanted to point out that:

ΠΡΟΦΟΤΟΥΡΟΣ

[in my opinion]

is a combination of two words not one word, as that forum seems to think.

ΠΡΟ + ΦΟΤΟΥΡΟΣ

infact, I dont even think the latter is one word but also two separate words belonging to separate parts of the sentence. So, my thinking is:

ΠΡΟ + ΦΟΤΟΥ

and ΡΟΣ is for the next part of the sentence.
