Round-Up: March 3

Here is a round-up of today's blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you can subscribe by email.

AudioLatinProverbs.com: Today's proverb is Tranquillo quilibet gubernator est. In English: When it's calm, anybody can be the helmsman. Listen to the audio, and find out just why it is perfectly good Latin to call Arnold Schwarzenegger the "Governator."

AudioLatin.com: Verses: Here is some more audio for the Vulgate Verses book - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English notes and commentary on these verses also. Today's group includes the Biblical reference to the famous Cretan liars paradox: Cretenses semper mendaces.

Greek Via Fables: Here's the latest from the Greek fables of Syntipas. Today's fable is Θηρευτὴς καὶ λύκος, The Hunter and the Wolf, a fable about the demise of the wolf which is preserved only in the fables of Syntipas.

For an image today, here is the Governator, to accompany the post at AudioLatinProverbs.com:
