Is in Old Latin, as in classical Latin, is the Demonstrative which (1) refers to some thing or person previously mentioned, (2) accompanies a Relative Pronoun, e.g. is . . qui. (On its use instead of a repeated Relative, see above, 7) This function is shared by the Conjunctions and Adverbs formed from the same Pronominal Stem: ita (see VIII. 2), ibi1, inde, eo, etc.

1 In Livius Andronicus Odyss. 9 ibi seems to be used differently. Homer's line (Od. 2, 317)ἠὲ Πύλονδ᾽ ἐλθὼν αὐτοῦ τῷδ᾽ ἐνὶ δήμῳ” is thus rendered: “<aut> n Pylum deveniens aut ibi ommentans”. But we do not know the context.
