Hello there! I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to translate habuisse in a sentence that says: Itaque se quidem, Asiam incolentes, aiunt Persæ, raptarum mulierum nullam habuisse rationem.
Thank you very much!

Hello,

Is it the phrase rationem habere that you're having trouble understanding, or is it the entire construction se... habuisse? Are you familiar with indirect statements and the accusative-and-infinitive construction?

Hi, is this homework? Why don't you make an attempt at translating this passage yourself, and post it here?
