The Positive sense of the Comparative ocius is established as early as Plautus, e.g. Most. 679evocadum aliquem ocius”, but the Comparative sense appears in a line like Curc. 154nec mea gratia commovent se ocius”. Of comic Comparison we may take as example paenissume, Most. 656ita mea consilia perturbat paenissume.
