With enthusiasm and wry wit, author Jones takes you step by step through the rudiments of the Western World's first great language--the medium of Plato and the New Testament. Introduces the Greek alphabet, explains each grammar point in layman's terms, gives plenty of study hints, provides answers for the exercises, and even presents a "to-do" list at the end of most chapters. Not too far into the book you'll already be reading masterful Greek literature, in extracts chosen from such authors as Plato, Sophocles, and Thucydides. Offers a discussion of Greek history and culture in each chapter, and another feature that looks closely at Greek words, with special emphasis on related words in English.--From publisher description.

Empire of Ancient Greece chronicles the remarkable legacy of the Greeks, as well as the diversity of their societies - from the thriving democracy of Athens to the militarism of Sparta to the oligarchy of Thrace. It explores the conditions that made it possible for the ancient Greeks to develop a culture that set the foundation for our intellectual lives today, and explains why Greek power eventually declined. Connections in our own world to the ancient Greeks are numerous, including the Olympics, much of our classical literature, the scientific method, architecture, and many English words.

This workbook eases you into the complexities of writing Ancient Greek. You will learn to write Greek starting with the individual letters of the Greek alphabet. You will build syllables out of the Greek letters and create whole words from those syllables. Finally, you will put Greek words together in phrases, sentences and even paragraphs. All along the way, the workbook offers ample opportunity and space to practice writing Greek. A range of exercises and copy practice cover all the letter forms, diacritic combinations (including accents and breathings) and punctuation required to read Greek. Practice pages give Greek and English names of letters and characters, standard pronunciation and transcription, and the number and direction of pen strokes needed to compose each character. The appendix introduces three other historical Greek scripts and provides answers to every exercise. Includes a thorough table of contents and short index.

Modern Greek Folklore and Ancient Greek Religion

A Study in Survivals

Originally published in 1910, this book analyses the customs and superstitions of modern Greece as a means of gaining a greater understanding of ancient Greek belief structures. Analogies and coincidences between ancient and modern Greece had been pointed out prior to the publication of this edition, but no large attempt had been made to trace the continuity of the life and thought of the Greek people, and to exhibit modern Greek folklore as an essential factor in the interpretation of ancient Greek religion. The text is highly accessible, and all quotations from ancient and modern Greek are translated into English. This is a fascinating book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in anthropology and the classical world.

Professor Lloyd has chosen fifteen of his most important and influential articles from the last two decades to be reprinted in this collection. They tackle a wide range of problems in ancient Greek and Chinese thought, focussing especially on science but including also medicine, mathematics, philosophy and mythology. Alongside papers that deal with technical issues in the interpretation of our sources, others raise strategic questions to do with the institutional framework of ancient science, the role of literacy in its development, and the underlying ontological and epistemological presuppositions of different groups of ancient investigators. Two of the articles appear here for the first time in English.
