The Ablative with dignus is associated in some Grammars with the Ablative of Comparison, in others with the Ablative of Price. In Plautus we find not only dignus aliqua re, but dignus ad, e.g. Mil. 968 “ad tuam formam illa una dignast”. (On id dignus esse, see above, 40). He gives decorus the same Ablative as dignus in Mil. 619 “neque te decora neque tuis virtutibus.”
