In the sentence

Hominem ad me agebant (long e on the me)

What is "me" in this sentence? I think that hominem is accusative as it is the direct object of agebant, and ad takes the accusative so would that mean "me" is accusative of "me" (in the English sense)?

Possible translation:

They were leading the man to me?

Ad takes the accusative.

Ego declines thusly:

Nom. Ego
Acc. me
Gen. mei
Dat. mihi
Abl. me

Sentences can have more than one of each case of course.
