Text: Plato's Apology of Socrates, etc.  G. P. Rose ed.
(Bryn Mawr Commentary);  Other trial narratives as time permits.
You will also need an Intermediate Greek Lexicon (or better) &  reference grammar 

Objectives:  The first aim of this study is to build a command of basic vocabulary, 
syntax and interpretive skills for reading Greek prose. 
You should also gain a general sense of the political and intellectual context of 
these texts.
Requirements: competent translation from the Greek, command of vocabulary 
and grammar, using dictionary, commentary and other references. 
Translating in class should not  be a recitation of a prepared version.  
I encourage you not to write out prepared translations--you will not be allowed 
to consult them in class.  
Keep a list of required vocabulary, esp. verbs with principal parts; 
and problematic constructions (e.g. conditions). 

The course grade will consist of 2-3 quizzes (total 50 pts), Final Examination (30) 
and record of daily participation.  

For rules regarding attendance, make-ups,  non-discrimnation and special accomoda-
tions, see online Policy statement.
