The Old Latin Infinitive bibere in the phrase dare bibere (biber), e.g. is in some Grammars explained like aquam dare, in others as an Infinitive of Purpose. The Infinitive of Purpose is a common usage, e.g. In this function the First Supine competes with the Infinitive, e.g. Most. 594venisti huc te extentatum?” (see below, 42), also ut (or Relative Pronoun) and Subjunctive. These two are combined in Ter. Andr. 514missast ancilla ilico obstetricem arcessitum ad eam et puerum ut adferret simul.
