The same variation of construction that appears in classical Latin with verbs like circumdo, (1) c. murum urbi, (2) c. urbem muro, is seen with instruo in Plautus, e.g. Mil. 981 “aurum atque ornamenta quae illi instruxti mulieri.” Impertio aliquem aliqua re is the usual construction, e.g. Epid. 127 “Stratippoclem impertit salute servus Epidicus”, Ter. Eun. 270, etc., but aliquam rem alicui (usual with Cicero) appears occasionally, Pseud. 41 “Phoenicium Calidoro amatori suo … salutem impertit” (cf. Vidul. 39, Novius 11).
