The participle with σύνοιδα or συγγιγνώσκω am conscious, accompanied by the dative of the reflexive pronoun, may stand either in the nominative agreeing with the subject, or in the dative agreeing with the reflexive. Thus, συνειδὼς αὐτὸς αὑτῷ ἔργον εἰργασμένος conscious (to himself) that he had done the deed Ant. 6.5, ἐμαυτῷ ξυνῄδη οὐδὲν ἐπισταμένῳ I was conscious of knowing nothing P. A. 22c.

a. When the subject is not the same as the object, the latter, with the participle, may stand in the dative, or (rarely) in the accusative. Thus, ξυνίσα_σι Μελήτῳ μὲν ψευδομένῳ, ἐμοὶ δὲ ἀληθεύοντι they know as well as Meletus that he is lying, and (as well as I do) that I am speaking the truth P. A. 34b, συνειδὼς τῶν ἀ_θλημάτων δούλους μετέχοντας knowing that slaves participate in the contests D. 61.23. (The force of σύν at times almost disappears.)
