Re: Ps 29 (30) v6

Hi Barry, That's what I was considering after I came up short for a missing noun, and for πρωί that seemed quite ok to me. But ἐσπέρα is an noun rather than an adverb. So I was wondering if that was still valid or if perhaps one needed to assume an omitted infinitive ? Thx D But notice that it's ἑσ...

Re: Ps 29 (30) v6

τὸ ἑσπέρας αὐλισθήσεται κλαυθμός, καὶ εἰς τὸ πρωὶ ἀγαλλίασις. I don't think it's necessary to supply any missing noun. The neuter articles here simply substantialize the adverbs. In this case the first usage would be an accusative of respect "weeping lodges in the evening" and the second ...

Re: Weekend Papyrus 6-11-2021

4 τοὺς μετʼ ἐσοῦ πάντας. περὶ οὗ μοι παλλάκεις Looks like this text was retyped by an American. I'm not at all sure what you mean. The text is as the manuscript has it. I will call attention to ἐσοῦ, which seems to be by analogy with ἐμοῦ. Normally with σύ the difference is simply with the accent. ...

Re: Weekend Papyrus 6-11-2021

I've finally had to resort to an Accordance workspace specifically for these :) Having ready access to all the dictionaries and grammars plus the web resources - not least a page on the Ancient Greek month names - it just became too hard swapping back and fourth. Not that it has everything I want bu...

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 6-4-2021

Hi Barry, I'm so far going with ἔχων should be ἔχον as far as agreement errors go. But I'm puzzling over how ὥστε is functioning here. I am possibly missing it's common 'so that' use but here it just seems to be redundant to the dative sense conveyed by Διονυσἰῳ. LSJ notes a usage like this, if I'm...

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 6-4-2021

The addressing ones are really interesting - thanx. Not a generally usable addressing system today. The postman must have known the recipients or people who did - I wonder when envelopes first came in. I can't remember which book I read it in, but usually the letter was given to an acquaintance who...
