The ‘Partitive’ Genitive with largiter, adfatim borders on the ‘Genitive of Plenty and Want.’ Here, as we have seen, the Ablative competes with the Genitive -- cf. -- although different words seem to show a predilection for the one Case or the other. Thus From the other Dramatists may be cited Pacuvius 291 “postquam est oneratus frugum et floris Liberi”, Pomponius 101 “domus haec fervit flagiti”. Vitae seems to be Genitive in Stich. 18haec res vitae me, soror, saturant”.
