Latin Teaching Resources for Halloween from from Rogueclassicist

Werewolf Week at Sententiae Antiquae
We know there will be plenty of Latin teachers wondering how to fit Hallowe’en into tomorrow’s distracting day (for students), so here are all of the awesome Sententiae Antiquae’s Werewolf Week posts … should keep the kids busy for a while (they’re in ‘reverse order’, most recent first; I don’t think there is any nsfw language in any of these):

ΛΟΓΕΙΟΝ - Logeion

 [First posted in AWOL 7 May 2012, updated 30 October 2016]

ΛΟΓΕΙΟΝ - Logeion
  • Logeion (literally, a place for words; in particular, a speaker's platform, or an archive) was developed after the example of, to provide simultaneous lookup of entries in the many reference works that make up the Perseus Classical collection. As always, we are grateful for the Perseus Project's generosity in sharing their data. None of this would be possible without their commitment to open access. To improve the chronological range for which the dictionaries are useful, we have added DuCange (see further updates below!), and to enhance this site as both a research and a pedagogical tool, we add information based on corpus data in the right side bar, as well as references to chapters in standard textbooks. More such 'widgets' will be added over time, along with, we hope, still more dictionaries.
  • Update January 2016: We are delighted to announce the advent of the Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources in Logeion. Many thanks to the British Academy (specifically, its Projects committee and its DMLBS committee), and in particular to the editor of DMLBS, Richard Ashdowne, for making this happen. We are thrilled to add another newly-released resource on the Latin side. Academic users: please do urge your libraries to purchase print copies of DMLBS (and DGE!), if they have not yet done so.
  • Many thanks to Matt Shanahan, Josh Day, and XSLT wizard Alex Lee for their help in bringing DMLBS to Logeion.
  • The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources is the work of a century-long British Academy project, based first in London and then at the University of Oxford, that ran from 1913 to the completion of the printed dictionary in 2013. The DMLBS has been based wholly on original research and it documents the vocabulary of Latin in medieval Britain from the sixth to the sixteenth centuries. The DMLBS is a copyright work and the text appears on the Logeion site under licence from the British Academy, to whom we express our thanks. Users will find the following resources at the DMLBS project website helpful: A user's guide to the dictionary, the bibliography and notes to the bibliography, and guidelines for citing DMLBS.
  • Hellenists also have reason to rejoice: The Woordenboek Grieks/Nederlands, a Dutch project in progress, has made its finished letter ranges available to us. We thank the editors-in-chief, Ineke Sluiter, Albert Rijksbaron, and Ton Kessels, and their project coordinator, Lucien van Beek. A full roster of the team of writers and editors, and further information about the project, can be found on its website. At Logeion we believe that all users stand to benefit from up-to-date Greek dictionaries such as DGE and Grieks/Nederlands, regardless of their mother tongue. This is the first dictionary that Walt Shandruk has handled for Logeion; and while it takes skill to adapt third-party data, Walt has dealt with that but also confronted third-party code - with aplomb. Many thanks.
  • In other news, BWL, which is derived from a useful Dutch resource for intermediate Latin students, and illustrates important constructions and idiomatic usages of the most frequent Latin words, now features translations for its example sentences. This was a long-time desideratum, and we thank Rebekah Spearman for doing the last push that this project needed. She, however, cannot be held responsible for all the thousands of translated sentences! Please send your comments our way if you encounter problems. The other existing dictionaries, too, have seen the usual additional cleanup of infelicities in the original data entry process. Many thanks to all users who pointed out errors. If you find more, please report them: we are grateful for your assistance in incrementally improving this resource.
  • Update January 2015: We are grateful to Philip Peek of Bowling Green State University for making available his file with vocabulary for Chase & Phillips.
  • Update August 2014: In addition to the usual editing of existing dictionaries and morphology (keep reporting typos to us, please!), we are delighted to add a first author-specific lexicon on the Latin side, thanks to efforts at Dickinson College. Users will now encounter Frieze-Dennison's lexicon to Vergil's Aeneid for relevant entries. Many thanks to Christopher Francese and the DCC 'crew'! On another note, Logeion and the Logeion app got a mention in the New York Times, which we are thrilled about. We are, as always, grateful to Josh, Matt & Josh for developing this site and the app, and to the College of the University of Chicago for its support and its 'ambidextrous' undergrads, who know their way around Python and XML as well as around Greek and Latin.
  • Update December 2013: We are delighted to announce that we are adding the premier dictionary for Ancient Greek, the Diccionario Griego-Español (DGE), to Logeion. Both for entries from DGE and from DuCange, we will include a link to these dictionaries' home sites for every entry we display. As we work on displaying these entries better, we recommend (also) visiting the home sites, which look positively elegant. This update also brings the Latin-Dutch dictionary, LaNe, up to date with the printed 6th edition, which will be coming out soon.
  • Update October 2013: Logeion is now available as an app for iOS, so that you can consult it even without a working internet connection. Find the Logeion app in Apple's app store.
  • Update January 2012: We have now added a Latin-Dutch dictionary to the collection: The Woordenboek Latijn/Nederlands. One notable feature of this dictionary, for those who do not speak Dutch, is that a lot of attention has been paid to ensure accuracy of vowel length for the lexical entries. For further information see below.

      Internet Archaeology E-Monograph Series
      Internet Archaeology is a journal but some articles are monograph length and they may contain 100s of images or link to or integrate large sets of data. These e-monographs have been brought together in one place to form an E-Monograph series. This is not a separate digital publication (all remain listed as articles in their respective issues) but our aim is to showcase and highlight these particularly large bodies of work and to remind potential authors of the publishing opportunities available via Internet Archaeology.

      Portraits du Fayoum

      [First posted in AWOL 6 December 2013, updated 30 October 2016]

      Portraits du Fayoum
      Peints sur des plaquettes de bois précieux ou sur de la toile de lin, les portraits du Fayoum sont datés de la période romaine: du Ier au IVe siècle ap. J.-C.

      Il en existe quelques milliers conservés dans les musées depuis que W. M. Flinders Petrie découvrit en mars 1888 "un immense cimetière d'époque romaine avec des chambres tombales en brique contenant encore les corps de leurs propriétaires". L'émotion le saisit lorsqu'il aperçoit, encore fixé sur sa momie, le premier portrait, "une jeune fille magnifiquement dessinée, dans de douces teintes grises.
       La majorité des portraits funéraires présentent les visages grandeur nature. Ils doivent assurer au défunt un visage dans l'au-delà identique à celui de sa vie sur terre. Ils sont très expressifs, même après 2000 ans d'oubli.

      Sappho’s Poems Online

      [First posted in AWOL 15 July 2011, updates 29 October 2016]

      Sappho’s Poems
      Sean B. Palmer
      This is an attempt to collect Sappho's entire work together in one page — with Greek originals, succinct translations, and commentary.
      [Portrait of Sappho]
      When I first searched for Sappho's poems on the web, I found that most sites used out-of-date translations and numberings, with no original Greek. I wanted a complete work to peruse at leisure, with annotations and explanations throughout.
      Whilst this page is still far from acheiving the goal of being a complete and readable edition of Sappho, it's still hopefully quite useful.
      If you're new to Sappho, it's worth reading Wikipedia's introduction to her before starting on the poems. There's an awful lot of misinformation out there, so getting a good feel for the biographical and textual issues before you start on the poems will probably help you to enjoy them more.

      Goodspeed Manuscript Collection, University of Chicago Library

       [First poseted in AWOL 15 March 2013, updated 29 March 2016]

      Goodspeed Manuscript Collection
      The Edgar J. Goodspeed Manuscript Collection comprises 68 early Greek, Syriac, Ethiopic, Armenian, Arabic, and Latin manuscripts ranging in date from the 5th to the 19th centuries. The acquisition of these hitherto unknown manuscripts was spearheaded by Edgar J. Goodspeed in the first half of the twentieth century in order to support new scholarship in the humanities.

      With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grants for Libraries - Building Digital Resources program, the University of Chicago Library is creating a unique digital resource based on this collection. All 68 New Testament manuscripts and an additional 114 papyri fragments will be digitized in their entirety and presented with high-quality zoomable images through an interface that supports browsing within individual manuscripts and across the collection. The Goodspeed Manuscript Collection Project continues the scholarly tradition of the Goodspeed Collection itself and will support new types of research and teaching made possible by digital technologies.

      Homer and the Papyri

       [First posted in AWOL 16 May 2011, updated 27 October 2016]

      Homer and the Papyri


      Homer and the Papyri, first created by Professor Dana Sutton of the University of California, Irvine, is here published in a second electronic edition. The edition consists of a database of Homeric papyri published prior to the year 2004.

      Homer & the Papyri Editors and Advisors

      Editor in Chief: Gregory Nagy, Director of the Center for Hellenic Studies

      Editor Emeritus: Dana F. Sutton, The University of California, Irvine

      A note to users about the Homer and the Papyri database

      The database archived here was created in 2002 by Michael Jones, with the cooperation and supervision of the Stoa Consortium, edited at that time by Anne Mahoney and Ross Scaife. The database is now more than a decade old and has not been updated since 2003. Instead, complete editions of Homeric papyri are now being published as part of the Homer Multitext project. What follows is an overview of the current functionality of the two major types of searches available in this archived version of Homer and the Papyri.

      Searching for variants: Users may search for variants by specifying Iliad or Odyssey, book number, or a particular witness, as described on the Homer and the Papyri Help page and in the Introduction.

      Searching and generating lists of papyrus witnesses: Lists of Homeric papyri (regardless of whether or not they contain variants) can be generated by the database for the Iliad and Odyssey by simply choosing the title and selecting the "search witnesses" button. This list cannot be further specified.
