Happy New Year (don't know how to say it in Latin yet!)
Well, I've been reading Benn's Easy Latin Stories.
Some of the passages have thrown me for a loop.
"Tum Pythius quidam, prodigium veritus, oravit Xerxem ut unum e quinque filiis, qui in exercitu essent, sibi relinqueret."
Now, I understand what the sentence means and everything, but the "unum e quinque filiis."
I was thinking partitive genitve, but it's in the ablative, so is it ablative of separation?
