Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

Siebenthal is that it essentially gives me the clear explanations of Smyth Smyth is the most lucid reference grammar I have ever used. The language of Harvard a century ago might cause problems for non-native speakers but compared to Guy Cooper it is clear and concise. I used Cooper for Homer and A...

Re: Declension of foreign names --- Judith 2:24

The Judith 2:24 Αβρωνα is w/o breathing marks. For what its worth ... probably nothing.

I wonder however if it rather conveys something ...
