Today is a Latin day. Work with Greg at 11:00 am on the story of the killing of the Python by Apollo. That’s Book I:416-450. I’ve finished translating it and since I began this round of translating at Book I:1 that’s as far as I’ve gotten. By the time I hit Book II at verse 779, and perhaps before, I’ll be able to translate on my own. Then I’ll rely on occasional consultation with Greg, Perseus, my collection of commentaries, Wheelock, dictionaries, other English translations and, of course, the Latin text, most often the one mounted on Perseus, but I have other manuscripts, too, especially the Oxford Classical Text, considered the current scholarly consensus.
