SPQR, due February 11, 2012

by carole

I’ve been studying Latin on-line for about 1 1/2 years, and I hope that posting my exercises will foster a little diligence!

Chapter 21, Wheelock’s Latin, 6th ed.

TR 1 Venit iam magna aetas nova: de caelo mittitur puer, qui vitam deorum
habebit deosque videbit et ipse videbitur ab illis.
TR 1 cam Now a great new age is coming; a boy is sent from heaven, who will have the life of the gods and who will see the gods and who himself will be seen by them.

TR 2 Hic puer reget mundum cui virtutes patris pacem dederunt.TR 2 cam This boy will rule the world to which the virtues of his father have given peace.
TR 2 cam This boy will rule the world to which the virtues of his father have given peace.

TR 3 .. Pauca mala, autem, remanebunt, quae homines iubebunt laborare atque bellum asperum gerere.
TR 3 cam Few evils, however, will remain, which will command men to work and even wage harsh war.

TR 4 .. Erunt etiam altera bella atque iterum ad Troiam magnus mittetur Achilles.
TR 4 cam There will be other wars, and even the great Achilles will be sent to Troy again.

TR 5 .. Tum, puer, ubi iam longa aetas te virum fecerit, erunt nulli labores, nulla bella; nautae ex navibus discedent, agricolae quoque iam agros relinquent, terra ipsa omnibus hominibus omnia parabit. 
TR 5 cam Then the boy, where now a long life will have made a man of you, there will be no labors, no wars; sailors will disembark from their ships, and even farmers will leave their fields; the earth itself will provide all things for all men.

TR 6 .. Currite, aetates; incipe, parve puer, scire matrem, et erit satis spiritus mihi tua dicere facta.
TR 6 cam Fly by, ages; begin, small boy, to know your mother, and there will be enough breath for me to tell your deeds.

Chapter 21, Scribblers, Sculptors, and Scribes, ed. Richard LaFleur

IN 1 ..  Hic fuimus cari duo nos sine fine sodales; nomina si [quaeris, Caius et Aulus erant.
IN 1 cam In this place, we two were dear comrades to the end; our names, if you will ask, were Caius and Cuilus.

IN 2 .. Labora, aselle, quomodo ego laboravi, et proderit tibi.
IN 2 cam Toil, little ass, in the way in which I worked, and it will prove a benefit for you.

IN 3 .. D(is) m(anibus). T(itus) Flavius Martialis hic situs est. ‘quod edi, bibi, mecum habeo; quod reliqui, perdidi.’ V(ixit) a(nnos) LXXX. in f(ronte) p(edes) V; in a(gro) p(edes […].
IN 3 cam Into the hands of the gods, Titus Flavius Martialis, is placed here, “What I ate, I drank, I have with me; what I left behind, I ruined.:  He lived 80 years.  In front 5 feet; (x) feet in the field.

IN 4 .. Hospens, quod deico paullum est: asta ac pellege.  Heic est sepulcrum hau pulcrum pulcrai feminae; nomen parentes nominarunt ‘Claudiam’.  Suom mareitum corde deilexit souo. Gnatos duos creavit; horunc alterum in terra linquit, alium sub terra locat.  Sermone lepido, tum autem incessu commodo.  Domum servavit; lanam fecit.
Dixi — abei.
IN 4 cam Guest, what  I say is a small thing, stand and read it over. Here is the tomb, by no means beautiful, of a beautiful woman; her parents provided her with the name “Claudia.” She loved her husband with her heart.  She bore two sons; she left one of them on earth; she placed the other under the earth;  she was a women of agreeable speech and a pleasant bearing.  She kept house; she wove cloth.  I have spoken — you may leave.
