livy-ing it up in my parents' house

i was delighted to come across a future passive infinitive tonight while reading book 1 of livy. yes, this all-too-rare form in 'iri' always brings joy to the heart of american youth. tonight's gem was 'dicatum iri', 'would be dedicated'.

if it's been a while since you've read livy's account of the hercules/cacus episode...well, perhaps you should turn off 'friends' and check it out.
