This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 Excerpt: ...fiaaiXitov, they are ruled by kings (active, jSacriAeis apovo-iv avriov). Yvo dWofpvkwv /xaXXov i TTtfiovXtvovro, they were more plotted against by men of other races, T. 1, 2 (active, iirefiovkevov aii-ois). 1237. N. Other prepositions than mo with the genitive of the agent, though used in poetry, are not common in Attic prose: such are irapa, irpos, oc, and d?rd. (See 1209, c.) 1238. 1. The perfect and pluperfect passive may have the dative of the agent. 2. The personal verbal in-t«os takes the dative (1596), the impersonal in-rtov the dative or accusative, of the agent (1597). 1239. When the active is followed by two accusatives, or by an accusative of a thing and a dative of a person, the case denoting a person is generally made the subject of the passive, and the other (an accusative) remains unchanged.

A Wo ri /xti£ov imTa6o-io-$c, you will have some other greater command imposed on you (active, aAXo Ti /xe?£ov v/xtv f7riTa4ovo-tv, they will impose some other greater command on you), T. 1,140. Ot tmTtTpap.jxivoi Ttjv (pvkaitrjv, those to tchom the guard has been intrusted (active, imTpeirtiv rrjv (pvXaxrjv Tovtcms), T. 1,126. Aip6epav ivnp.fj.fvo;, clad in a leathern jerkin (active, (.va-wrtiv Ti Tivl, to Jit a thing on one), Ar. N. 72. So inKoirTto-Oixi T6v 6j6aXp.6v, to have his eye cut out, and aKortp.vtcrdoj. Ttjv KofraX-qv, to have his head cut off, etc., from possible active constructions iKKorrruv Tl Tivl, and diroWpvciv rt Tivi This construction has nothing to do with that of 1058. The first two examples are cases of the cognate accusative (1051) of the thing retained with the passive, while the accus...
