Drill, I, 4d and 5a
I may have gone way astray here, so correct, please.
I-4-d. Quidam dixerunt aliquos vicisse Caesarem.
Quidam looks like the subject of dixerunt; hence: "Certain ones said. . ."
but both aliquos and Caesarem look accusative. So should it be Englished as:
"... Caesar defeated somebody";
or, "somebody defeated Caesar".
My intuitive preference, "Caesar defeated somebody."
I-5-a. Homines quidam mirantur verenturque Caesarem.
Should it be "Certain men admire and fear Caesar";
or, "Certain (men) admire men, and fear Caesar".
My intuitive preference is the former.
