Nor can we suppose that Graecisms were employed by Plautus, as by the Augustan poets (e.g. Horace, Carm. 2.9 “desine mollium tandem querelarum”), to embellish his style. This is out of keeping with the colloquial tone of Comedy. On Pers. 385 “non tu nunc hominum mores vides?” see VI. 2; on Asin. 634 “quas hodie adulescens Diabolus ipsi daturus dixit”, see V. 34; on the Genitive of Respect, e.g. Rud. 213 “incerta sum consili”, II. 5, and of Exclamation, e.g. Most. 912 “mercimoni lepidi”, II. 6.
