    What is the meaning and role of the datives in this sentence?

    "Quem rem ita fraudi esse non debet, ut pudori nulli mihi duco."
  2. Quasus Civis Illustris

    • Civis Illustris
    Coimbra, Portugal
    Fraudi, pudori: dativus finalis.
    Mihi: dativus commodi.

    Cum dativus finalis & dativus commodi simul usurpantur, constructio dativus duplex dicitur.
    Bitmap and Issacus Divus like this.
  3. Right. The wiki gives suis saluti fuit as another example of the double dative.
