previous next

patuisset represents the future perfect indicative of oratio recta, just as paterer in line 141 represents a future simple, the subjunctive being required by what is virtually oratio obliqua (Kennedy, P. S. L. G. § 191, Arnold's Lat. Prose Comp. ed. Bradley, §§ 449, 474). For the tense see R. § 620.
