Of the attraction of the Relative to the Antecedent (like Horace's “iudice quo nosti populo,Sat. 1.6.15) there is apparently an example in Terence, Heaut. 87A. scire hoc vis? B. hac quidem causa qua dixi tibi”; but not in Plautus; for in Cas. 932inde foras tacitus profugiens exeo <hoc> ornatu quo vides”, we can easily supply me exeuntem (See R. Foerster ‘die Casusangleichung des Relativ-pronomens im Lateinischen’ in the Jahrbücher class. Philologie, Suppl. xxvii, pp. 170 sqq.).
