    Safe Greek Fun!
    A lively and engaging demonstration on ways to use Liddell-Scott
    Jones Greek Lexicon and other tools on the Perseus Project, even if you
    don’t know Greek and don’t have plans to learn it right away. This is painless
    and fun, and only sophistical in the best, pre-postmodern recuperative
    sense.
