§ 180. “σχῆμα καθ᾽ ὅλον καὶ μέρος”.—Not infrequently a verb takes two objects in the same case (commonly accusative, but the dative is found also), of which the former indicates a whole, the latter a part to which the action of the verb is limited. E. g. A 362, “τί δέ σε φρένας ι?κετο πένθος;” ‘why has grief come to your heart’ (‘to you, to the heart’)? 16.289, “τὸν βάλε δεξιὸν ὦμον”, ‘he hit him on the right shoulder.’
