The Perfect Deponent and Passive can take as Auxiliary fui in the sense of sum, e.g. Most. 694non mihi forte visum ilico fuit.” The substitution of fui gives precision to the Preterite sense, which is often obscured in Perfects like solitus est = solet, lubitum est = lubet. Similarly with fuerim for sim in Perfect Subjunctive, e.g. Epid. 225, Pers. 379.
