Quam 'as'

Postby pmda » Thu Mar 27, 2014 1:59 pm

Volo intellectum confirmare verbi 'quam' (secundi) in hac sententia:

Helenus Aeneam monebat:

Italia quam tu iam propinquam esse reris,

[Italy which you believe yourself to be near,]

longo cursu abs te dividitur:

[is separated from you by a long journey:]

prius circum Siciliam tibi navigandum est

[first it is necessary that you must circumnavigate Sicily]

quam in illa terra urbem condere poteris.

quam = quoniam ?

for in that land you will found a city...

prius quam = earlier than = before

You must (first) sail around Sicily before you will be able to found a city in that land.
