I bought a $200 antique Iliad

Completely in ancient greek. I also bought an $80 ancient greek compilation with Euripides and Aristophanes.
I don't speak a word of ancient greek. I thought this would spur me to learn it but that was 4 months ago. What do?

      The guy that sold it to me said it was the copy Alexander carried around with him. Idk who he meant but it sounded important.

    Can you post an image you the books you bought? If you dropped $80 for used OCT or Loeb copies of Euripides and Aristophanes you got complete ripped off. Three volumes of complete Euripides and two volumes of Aristophanes should be $50 at the very most.
    Also for learning Greek through Homer I would recommend Pharr's Reading Greek.
