August 18 Round-Up

Apologies in advance: my posting is going to be really sporadic and unpreditable over the next couple of weeks due to back-to-school craziness - I'm sure many of you are experiencing the same! Meanwhile, here is a round-up of today's blog posts - and for previous posts, check out the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives. You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you might prefer to subscribe by email.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Nemo est supra leges (English: No one is above the laws). You can use the Javascript to include the Latin proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog. Meanwhile, to read a brief essay about this proverb, visit the AudioLatinProverbs.com website.

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Πολλὰ μεταξὺ πέλει κύλικος καὶ χείλεος ἄκρου (English: This is the Greek equivalent of "many a slip 'twixt cup and lip"). You can use the Javascript to include the Greek proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - and each Greek proverb also comes with a Latin version.

RomanSudoku.com: For your numerical amusement, it's Sudoku played with Roman numerals! You can visit the blog for a large version of today's puzzle (it's a perfacile puzzle this time, very easy!!!), which is conveniently sized to print out and play.

Learning Latin Links. The link for today is Latin Grammar Tables - a really nicely done webpage with basic noun and verb paradigms for quick reference.

Latin Via Fables: Today, along with a Latin fable from Odo of Cheriton (delightful medieval Latin!), I've added an image slideshow to the blog! It is for Perry 358, the story of the donkey in the lion's skin. I've got about a dozen different illustrations in the slideshow; here is one of them: isn't it ingenious? Look closely and you will see the donkey!
