The Ablative of Comparison is used not merely with Comparatives, but with aeque, e.g. Curc. 141 “qui (= quis) me in terra aeque fortunatus erit?” (On the use of aeque with the Comparative of an Adjective, e.g. aeque miserior, see III. 2). Some appeal to a line like Amph. 704, “ex insana insaniorem facies”, in support of the theory that the Ablative of Comparison is a developement of the Ablative of Motion or Provenience.
