Aeneid VI 875-6

By Cinefactus, in 'Aeneid', Oct 12, 2019.

  1. Cinefactus Censor

    • Censor
    litore aureo
    Nec puer Īliacā quisquam dē gente Latīnōs
    in tantum spē tollet avōs

    Can anyone explain the grammar of in tantum spe? I would have thought it should be in tantam spem
  2. Dantius Homo Sapiens

    • Civis Illustris
    in orbe lacteo
    in tantum is a separate phrase ("so much"), and then spe is abl. of respect/means/something like that.
