That's easy to answer!
I have studied ancient Greek for five years, getting top degrees at my
final examinatons, and I can't understand a damned single word in the
(three) KOMIX issues I have!


(I can't read Homerus either... that's not the kind of Greek I learned
(Koine'). I can't read Saffo (?) either, but for a couple of poems...

BTW... Why isn't Latin called "Ancient Italian" ?   ;-)
