Round-Up: February 26

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.

LatinViaProverbs.com: I'm working away on the online guide to Latin Via Proverbs, with grammar notes and English translations, working through the book group by group. Today I've posted notes for Group 166, a group of proverbs which includes this great riddling proverb about time: Feriunt omnes, ultima necat.

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 this fine verse about how all things are possible with God: Apud homines impossibile est, sed non apud Deum.

Greek Via Fables: Here's the latest from the Greek fables of Syntipas. Today's fable is Ποταμοὶ καὶ θάλασσα, The Rivers and the Sea, a story which is preserved only here in Syntipas.

For an image today, I'll let the Roman Emperor of the Week widget supply us a portrait of this week's ruler!
