sumpsisse. The infinitive is used, as in the next six lines, to represent in oratio obliqua the indicative of a principal clause in oratio recta, the relative being used to coordinate these clauses, each of which carries on the narrative. See Roby, § 1781, Madv. § 402 (a, b). For coordination by the relative in oratio recta see Roby, § 1026 (b), Kennedy, P.S.l.G. § 82, Madvig, § 448.
