    Hi,

    I was wondering if this is a feasible alternative to the titular sentence:

    Populo urbis Romanis superato est


    Thanks

    Hi,

    No, it doesn't make sense. The subject of the sentence (populus) and the participle agreeing with it (superatus) need to be in the nominative.

    Where does the phrase in the title come from? It's a fragment rather than a complete sentence.

    From an exercise. I was just experimenting with the passive perfect form, and you have confirmed what I needed to know ('The subject of the sentence (populus) and the participle agreeing with it (superatus) need to be in the nominative.")

    Thank you!
