This is much delayed, and perhaps those who were asking don't care by now,
or have left the List. But there really are cassettes available which
presewnt readings of classical Greek (including pitch accents).

They are read by Prof. Stephen Daitz, Prof, of Classical Languages
at CUNY. They include:
"The Pronunciation and Reading of Ancient Greek: A Practical Guide"
(two cassettes plus booklet--readings from Homer and Plato, plus exercises)
@ $34.95

Readings of complete texts, such as Aristophanes' Birds, Euripides"
Hekabe, Sophocles' Electra, the entire Iliad, entire Odyssey, Plato's
Apology and Crito, selections from poets and orators, etc., etc.

You can get a full list from:

96 Broad Street
Guilford, CT 06437

Phone orders can be made on 800-number: 1-800-243-1234

I HAVEN'T HEARD THESE. Perhaps Carl Conrad knows them, and can comment on
their quality. But don't bother him if he doesn't post a comment on them,
