Victorius quotes in illustration, Cic. pro Muren. c. 39, Si L. Catilina cum suo consilio nefariorum hominum quos secum eduxit hac de re posset iudicare, condemnaret L. Murenam: si interficere posset, occideret....Idemne igitur delecti amplissimis ex ordinibus honestissimi atque sapientissimi viri iudicabant quod ille importunissimus gladiator hostis reipublicae iudicaret?

οὗ ἐναντίον] The gen. immediately following the ordinary construction ἐναντίον, is remarkable. The genitive after the adjective is accounted for by the comparison implied in it, just as it follows ἕτερος, ἄλλος, διάφορος, διαφέρειν, διαφερόντως, ἀλλοῖος, ἀλλότριος. See for examples Matth. Gr. Gr. 366, on ἐναντίος, Obs. 2.
