preteriteblog asked: I don't know if anyone has answered the question about the Sappho fragment (I say someone in another time will remember us) yet. I'm so new to Tumblr I don't how to find out. Anyway the Greek is Μνάσεσθαί τινά φαμι καὶ ὕστερον ἀμμέων. It's quoted by Dio Chrysostom in Oration 37, section 47. Sorry if someone's got there before me. I used the Loeb edition of Dio to check it.
This question hadn’t been answered, so thank you very much. I will include here the rest of the information concerning the quote that you sent in separate messages for anyone else interested:
"I expect you know about the Perseus Digital library. You can find the Greek text of Dio Chrysostom’s Orations (inc. 37 with the Sappho quote) there at perseus(.)tufts(.)edu (omitting brackets) and drill to the Greco-Roman collection and then down to Dio."
The best ideas are common property.
