Although a phrase like quae tua est prudentia (qua es prudentia, cuius es prudentiae), nihil te fugiet is unknown to Plautus, the beginnings of this use of the Relative may be seen in lines like Mil. 951quin tu tuam rem cura potius …, quae tibi condicio nova et luculenta fertur”. (In Mil. 801 Parataxis is preferred: “ille, eiusmodi est, cupiet miser”. On Terence's utist audacia and ut est dementia, see VIII. 2 s.v. ‘ut.’)
