Nor can we suppose that Graecisms were employed by Plautus, as by the Augustan poets (e.g. Horace, Carm. 2.9desine mollium tandem querelarum”), to embellish his style. This is out of keeping with the colloquial tone of Comedy.

On Pers. 385non tu nunc hominum mores vides?” see VI. 2; on Asin. 634quas hodie adulescens Diabolus ipsi daturus dixit”, see V. 34; on the Genitive of Respect, e.g. Rud. 213incerta sum consili”, II. 5, and of Exclamation, e.g. Most. 912mercimoni lepidi”, II. 6.
