Good job ! Only minor inaccuracies :

1. τὰς τ?άπεζᾱς λύομεν.
τ?απέζας accent : see paradigms. It is because the accent cannot go backwards farther than the 3rd "short beat" (long alpha = Two beats, so the epsilon is the 3rd beat from the end backwards)

2. ο? τὰς ?μαξᾱς ??πάζουσι.
τὰς ?μάξᾱς (accent) ο?χ ??πάζουσιν (nu movable) would be more natural.

3. αἱ γέφῡ?αι μακ?αι και στεναι ἔσαν.
ἦσαν with an eta

4. τάς μάχαι?ᾱς ?ν ἅμαξῃ ἄγειν;
μαχαί?ᾱς accent again ?μάξῃ accent ἄγει NO nu movable here !

5. ού τὰς φυλακᾱς εκ κώμης εἰς θάλατταν ἄγεις.
?κ don't forget the breathing ἄγει is the 3rd person singular.

(Note : I say nothing about missing accents)

Thanks for your help with these - it is much appreciated. I hope to get some more done over the Christmas break.

Far worse than Greek next week will be trying to see if I can still get into my wetsuit! An annual ritual accompanied by much pain and cries of horror - I can't have put on that much weight! At least I frighten away the Great White sharks that live near Adelaide. :wink:

I hope you all have a very happy Christmas and New Year!

Hi!!
:D

I have two quick questions about the last two sentences...

4. τάς μάχαι?ᾱς ?ν ἅμαξῃ ἄγειν;
isnt it better to use εἰς instead of ?ν to emphatise the inside location and the article since we are referring and specific wagon ?
4. τὰς μαχαί?ᾱς εἰς την ἄμαξαν ἄγει;

5. ού τὰς φυλακᾱς εκ κώμης εἰς θάλατταν ἄγεις.
well, I little more difficult for me, it is better to add the article since we are talking about specific villages and sea? and ?κ isnt follow by genitive?
plus I think it would be better if we use ?πί instead of εἰς to indicate the mouvent "over" and not "inside" the sea?
5. τὰς φυλακᾱς ?κ τῶν κωμῶν ?πί τῆς θάλαττης ο?κ ἄγει.

Almost ! It is the head of Sargon of Akkad, a masterpiece I have always admired.
