Abracadabra mortiferum magis est quod Graecis hemitritaeos vulgatur verbis; hoc nostrā dicere linguā non potuēre ulli, puto, nec voluere parentes. inscribes chartae quod dicitur abracadabra saepius et subter repetes, sed detrahe summam et magis atque magis desint elementa figuris singula, quae semper rapies, et cetera figes, donec in angustum redigatur littera conum : his lino nexis collum redimire memento. nonulli memorant adipem prodesse leonis.

Quinctius Serenus Sammonicus, Liber Medicinalis 923-941 (ed. Vollmer in Corpus Medicorum Latinorum 3.2, Leipzig: Teubner, 1916). The work seems to date from the 2nd to the 4th centuries AD, and is usually assigned by scholars to around AD 200, based on the dubious identification of the author as Serenus Sammonicus, a scholar and moral critic of the age of Septimius Severus. Vollmer sensibly suggests linques or scribes for figes, which he believes is a corruption carried over from figura in the previous line. Here is my translation: A New Semester.

Ultraviolet light reveals how ancient Greek statues really looked. @Mark 2000: Is this true?

Ultraviolet light reveals how ancient Greek statues really looked

I can't believe I didn't know this. But I can completely understand. I certainly would have done the same thing! @92BuickLeSabre: Institutionalized science was about getting the result you wanted back then, not about learning something new. @Mark 2000: Right. @Mark 2000: Well, some would argue that this is still true. (And, no, I don't mean crazy people that don't believe in climate change or dinosaurs.)

But in this case, I would argue that it was an objectively good idea. Latin texts with adjustable interlinear vocabulary: no dictionaries. The Latin Library. Perseus Digital Library. Learn Latin - Download Textkit's Latin grammar and reading textbooks.
