Catching Up and Looking Ahead
I’m putting the finishing touches on the six jokes necessary to bring Ioci Antiqui up to date. They should be up in an hour or so. I’m still mulling over how and when to make the transition to posting jokes … Continue reading
Oops . . . .
Spam comments on my two weblogs combined have increased from 400 per day only a month ago to over 800 now. I’ve been told that Spam Karma will solve the problem, and it certainly looks like just what I need, … Continue reading

Not Quite Caught Up
I spoke wrote posted too soon. The Ioci Antiqui page is again behind, though by only one day, since I have deleted the epigram of Martial that I’d already used for November 23rd. I’ll try to catch up tomorrow.
As promised, January’s Ioci Antiqui are now caught up through tomorrow (Monday), with five new jokes for the 19th through the 23rd, of which one or two are actually funny — opinions may differ as to which one or two. … Continue reading
Sorry about the missed days: I’ve been under the weather and bogged down in end-of-semester grading. I will post five more ancient jokes by midnight tonight to make up the deficit. These will be in the usual PDF file. At … Continue reading
Problems with Ioci Antiqui
I hadn’t planned to start posting these as ordinary posts, but Filezilla is refusing to upload my PDF file. Is 118k too big? I’ll try again in the morning — or perhaps the afternoon, since it’s the first day of … Continue reading
New Feature: Ancient Text of the Week
Coming up shortly, an English translation of the Younger Pliny on the murder of Larcius Macedo (Epistle 3.14). This is a private letter, but no doubt polished up, since Pliny published it himself in his own lifetime. I have tried … Continue reading

Now that I have my laptop back and have found a temporary and partial fix for my spam-comment problem (more on that soon), it’s time to start posting more regularly. But first I have a question for my readers. I’m … Continue reading
Starting Monday, I will continue my Ioci Antiqui series, begun five years ago and interrupted after two months by press of other work. For the first time in five years I have means, motive, and opportunity all at the same … Continue reading
I’ve added a dozen or so titles (all in Classics) to my list of Books for Sale (link in the left margin). Several seem to be rarities — at least no one else is offering copies on ABE. Please take … Continue reading
Now that I have my library mostly unpacked, I will posting more frequently on various topics. Some of these will be classical blogules: ideas interesting enough to write up, but too small to send off to a journal. Of these … Continue reading
Categories (Mine, not Aristotle’s)
Posting should be more frequent now that I’ve settled the categories. WordPress doesn’t make it easy. The category archives are displayed in the order in which the categories were added. Since I want them to appear in a particular logical … Continue reading
It’s too early to party, but I have uploaded the first e-fascicle of an electronic text of the complete epigrams of Martial: Book IV, with a few textual novelties, an original selection of variants and conjectures, and an apparatus criticus … Continue reading

1. It’s been more than five years since I first posted a Greek crossword puzzle, so I’ve made up another one. This one is bigger and better: 16 x 12 instead of 9 x 6, and using the entire Greek … Continue reading

The categories will be completely reworked in the next few days. For teachers, the new ones will be partly by subject, partly by level, so that all posts likely to be of interest to middle-school, high-school, college, or graduate school … Continue reading
At Last . . . .
It looks like the transfer of this site and domain to their new host (Hosting Matters) is complete. Welcome again to anyone who got here by using the domain name rather than the complete numerical address (http://220.127.116.11/~curculio). If you have … Continue reading
Welcome to the new improved WordPress Curculio. The overall appearance will change frequently, perhaps drastically, over the next few weeks, but I’m eager to start posting again, so here it is. No need to update your blogrolls: as soon as … Continue reading
