The type of Genitive represented by lucri facere, a type variously explained in Grammars as ‘Genitive of Material’ and ‘Partitive Genitive,’ is much affected by Plautus. Here are some examples: The phrase damni facere occurs only in a context which admits of damni being a Partitive Gen, We find also the Accusative in these phrases: We find also ponere (addere, conferre) ad compendium, e.g. Cas. 517id ponito ad compendium.
