    Πονοῦσιν οὖν ὅ τε πατὴρ καὶ


    ὁ παῖς καὶ ὁ δοῦλος.

    In this sentence, why pais, doulos and pater are in nominative case and not in accusative?

    Because they're the subject of πονοῦσιν. "Therefore both the father and the son and the slave work."

    Hau mirandumst te, Danti uel Danti cum 'i' breui, ita Atticissantem audire, ὡς ἔπος εἰπεῖν. Tun tantum perdoctu's linguam Latinam ut eiusdem ingenio te taedeat tuopte!? Macte uirtute, adulescentule!
