Grammatica[fontem recensere]

  • quod, not qui, to agree with flumen (neuter) (do others concur with this? or should it agree with Ebrus? I think I'm right)
  • you can say Graece but not Graece antique; and what we really mean is that it's "from the ancient Greek name Ebros", so that's what I've written
  • in Mare Mediterraneum, not marem, because mare is neuter so the accusative is always identical with the nominative

Yes, flumen . . . quod. But I'd worry about aquas vertit; it may be a good idiom, but I'd have to look it up, and I don't see it in L&S. Given aquas, maybe fert or fundit or something else? (As I say, there's probably an idiom.) Also, in Praeclarae urbes a Hibero sectae sunt Caesaraugusta . . . et Dertosa = 'The famous cities C and D have been cut by the Hiberus' uses mighty strange word order. I suspect the author was trying to say 'Famous cities cut by the H are C and D'—which may want a different Latin construction. IacobusAmor 17:15, 9 Maii 2007 (UTC)
