I think you'll find people on the list receptive to questions on LXX and
even on classical Attic--there are some of us here who may know more about
Attic than about NT Greek! I've used the old Conybeare and Stock--I don't
know whether you mean the LXX reader they edited long ago and which has
been re-issued in the last 20 years or so in paperback or the grammar
introduction which has been issued separately under the title of "LXX
Grammar" or some such. At any rate, I've used them both for teaching and
for reference with satisfaction.
