A like freedom of construction with Genitive or Dative appears in some Adjectives, e.g. par, usually with Dative, e.g. Poen. 376, but with Genitive in Rud. 49 “ei erat hospes par sui Siculus senex” (parvi MSS.), Accius 465 “quodsi ex Graecia omni illius par nemo reperiri potest”. But editors are perhaps right in rejecting all cases of Dative with similis; for the evidence for this construction is weak (see my note on Capt. 582). Studiosus takes Dative in Mil. 802 “qui, nisi adulterio, studiosus rei nulli aliaest improbus”. (On Pseud. 183 “vino modo cupidae estis”, see above, 15） Conscius (with esse) seems to take the Dative (Ablative?) in Rud. 1247 “ne conscii sint ipsi maleficiis suis” (consci Pylades). This Dative is of the same type as Ter. Adelph. 671 “auctor his rebus quis est?”, and the examples, cognatus esse, etc., quoted above, 23
