The competition of Accusative with Dative has been already mentioned (25) in connexion with ausculto, etc. To the Compound Verbs which take Accusative as well as Dative (e.g. Epid. 135nunc iam alia cura impendet pectori”), we may add Anteeo (antideo) takes Accusative with an Ablative of Respect, e.g. Bacch. 1089solus ego omnes longe antideo stultitia et moribus indoctis”, but otherwise Dative, e.g. Pers. 778solus ego omnibus antideo facile”, Amph. 649virtus omnibus rebus anteit.Parco has Accusative and Dative indiscriminately, e.g. Mil. 1220ne parce vocem, ut audiat” (cf. Most. 104, and the old formula, like Gk. εὐφήμει, used at sacrifices parcito linguam), Pers. 682tace, parce voci” (cf. Poen. 1145).
