1525. With αὐτός.—The idea of accompaniment is often expressed by αὐτός joined to the dative. This use is common when the destruction of a person or thing is referred to. Thus, ““τῶν ϝεῶν μία αὐτοῖς ἀνδράσινone of the ships with its crewT. 4.14, ““εἶπεν ἥκειν εἰς τὰ_ς τάξεις αὐτοῖς στεφάνοιςhe bade them come to their posts, crowns and allX. C. 3.3.40. The article after αὐτός is rare; and σύν is rarely added (X. C. 2.2.9). Hom. has this dative only with lifeless objects.
