This could provoke some debate. I would say "the latter part of the day", or refer to "later in the day". Emotion: smile
Maybe with some context? With English, you definitely cannot do without the context!
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
"Later" and "latter" are synonymous in the meaning of "more advanced in a period".
So "later" and "latter" are both correct in your sentence, though people seem to prefer the "latter".

1. I read Arabic in the afternoon, and Greek in the morning. In my opinion, the latter half of the day is more conducive to the study of an ancient tongue.

2. I read Greek in the morning, and Arabic during the later half of the day.
