YES! I am in fact enough of a nerd to have bought it in Latin and really enjoy reading it. ( )

Oddly, only 14 LibraryThing users admit to owning this book in Latin, but 143 apparently do in Greek. I'm wondering about a filing problem, myself. I bought both of them thinking I could use them for unseen translation tests for my students, but the Latin and Greek are both too hard for elementary students.
