    An Ancient Greek Potter

    Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (as the first Harry Potter book is titled outside the U.S.) has now been translated into Classical Greek (as in Plato) and will be published later this month by the British publisher Bloomsbury under the title Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis. For further information about this innovative idea, read the review at,

    That title sounds Latin, not Greek.

    Has anyone considered someone has too much time on their hands? Think of the valuable translation projects to be accomplished and this is the result?
