I just finished a course of classical Latin and going over it again. Duolingo makes the so called dead language come to life! It is amazing! My hope is that Duolingo will have more lessons of this fascinating language and hopefully classical Greek as well.
I . . . finished a course of classical Latin . . .

Agreed! It was really fun, too.
My hope is that Duolingo will have more lessons of this fascinating language . . .
So do I! And according to the developers that is the intention.
and hopefully [Duolingo will offer] classical Greek as well.
That would be so great. And if a Duolingo classical Greek course would be anything like the Latin course it would be super.
I also finished Latin last week and would be really excited by some additional content (though I understand real people have to make that, and it's not going to be instantaneous). It's probably helping me to do two practices a day, but not as much as it would to complete a course as developed as the German or Spanish offerings. It'd be really good to get some Latin Duolingo stories as well, even just existing classical texts adapted to the format--I don't know enough about the language to seek out simple material suitable to my current very basic level of competence in the language. I'm also using Clozemaster every day for vocabulary, but don't have the time at the moment (given my primary language-learning commitments) to engage with the Oxbridge courses.

There are already in the comments some authors (as Cicero for example) that are worth looking into (search for these books, as an example).
