Lastly may be mentioned that the curious Latin use of 2nd Person Singular of this Mood in general statements, not referring to a definite person, is as early as Plautus, e.g.
- Bacch. 63 “ubi periclum facias (when one makes trial), aculeata sunt”,
- Truc. 569 “quod des, devorat”,
- Trin. 914 “fieri istuc solet: quod in manu teneas atque oculis videas, id desideres.”
- Most. 243 “videas eam medullitus me amare”,
- Ter. Hec. 58 “per pol quam paucos reperias meretricibus fideles evenire amatores, Syra.”
