In terms of the construction of indirect question, you can find similar examples in Smyth 2664. My only question is why the dative. [edit out]Do you mean your own inquiry/research or hearing this from someone?[/edit out](irrelevant)

Oh, I understand. I think It fits perfectly.
EDIT: This dative is the common construction with the comparative. I was just not familiar with it so I asked. I've searched and found that In classical writers, we often find ἤ+object of comparison with this construction instead of genitive.
