I dont' know about Lucian the quote elliptical? this is a
guess? or is the verb elited? Don't know without the passage before
the part I did want to ask: Does ease of reading make one less skilled
or less-educated?
Since...I don't have any attic or classical background...I find Luke's
greek quite proficient. but I'm a novice.
