OLD POSTS: Ancient Greek Passages

(Continuing my inventory.) As with the previous post — I am person that cannot, does not, never will, know Ancient Greek –Attic, Doric, Ionic, Homeric, Common or what have you– a mere perpetual student of it, but have sought in these posts to preserve something of what I tried to understand and to catch glimpses of great writing in the original…  A standout: very much like Herbert Weir Smith’s translation of these lines from the Libation Bearers.
