Illud te, Tulle, moneo - Roma Aeterna XLIII Line 56

Illud te, Tulle, moneo—I warn you, Tullus.

What is illud doing in this sentence? It doesn't seem to be necessary.

Illud is a complement of moneo. "I admonish/warn you of this." Moneo can take two accusative complements: (1) the person admonished/warned; and (2) the thing admonished/warned against, moneo aliquem aliquid. See Lewis and Short I(g) (this looks like a typo for I(c)):
