Of the ‘Possessive Genitive’ these examples are noteworthy: With a Genitive like Capt. 583est miserorum ut malevolentes sint”, may be compared the use of the Possessive Pronoun, e.g. non meum est ‘that is not my habit’ (cf. IV. 2). We also find officium in this type of expression, e.g. Truc. 436non amantis mulieris, sed sociai unanimantis, fidentis fuit officium facere quod modo haec fecit mihi.
