Pavlos & Insidious.. I envy your ability to read these texts without having to rely on translations, like us poor plebs There is no truer phase than 'Lost In Translation' especially into a mongrel of a language such as English. I wonder if Latin verse makes a less torrid journey when translated into Italian, French or Spanish...?

The only Latin I learnt in my line of work are the names of the muscles in the body
