We were pleased to welcome back Leonard Muellner, who introduced the features and plans for the CHS project entitled The Free First Thousand Years of Greek (FF1K). The FF1K comprises the texts attested in manuscript from the earliest antiquity up to the 3rd Century CE., with some later additions that are part of the “normal” corpus of texts that classical Greek and Latin includes, such as the marginal scholia for authors like Homer and Pindar, or Stobaeus (5th Century CE).

We are pleased to share the following video about ancient Greek meter, featuring Professor Leonard Muellner. In this video, Muellner describes the basic rules of prosody, with a focus on dactylic hexameter, the meter of Homeric epic, and iambic trimeter, a meter used in ancient Greek tragedy.
This presentation is accessible to absolute beginners, as no previous knowledge of ancient Greek or poetic meter is assumed.
