586. Article with toiou=tos and the like.

τοιοῦτος, τοιόσδε, τηλικοῦτος, τηλικόσδε, τοσοῦτος, τοσόσδε”, are treated like ordinary adjectives, and, like them, may be used substantively with the article, or adjectively in the attributive position, but “τοσοῦτος” and “τοσόσδε” in either use are rare.

ORATORES ATTICI. — Instances of the article with “τοιοῦτος” are very numerous and references need not be given. The words “τηλικόσδε” and “τοσόσδε” seem not to occur and “τοιόσδε” is rare. “τοσοῦτος”, though exceedingly common, has furnished no satisfactory instance of the articular use treated in this section.
