Page 46, Exercise 107, end of chapter XV.
The sencence :The Germans, with (their) sons and daughters, are hastening with horses and wagons.
is translated as :Germani cum filiis filiabusque cum equis et carris properant/maturant.
in the answer key.
Why is the cum used? I interpreted the English sentence as: The Germans along with their sons and daughters are fleeing by means of
horses and wagons. So doesn't that make the equis et carris
ablatives of means, which according to D'Ooge should not have a cum preceding them. So shouldn't the second cum be absent in the snetence?
One explanation I could think of is that the horses and wagons are also ablatives of accompaniment, but why not means?
Could someone please help me out here.
