When the omitted antecedent is genitive or dative, the relative (if standing in a different case) is usually attracted into the genitive or dative. But a relative in the nominative masculine or feminine (sometimes in the neuter), or a relative depending on a preposition, retains its own case.

a. Genitive: ὧν (for τούτων οἷς) ἐντυγχάνω πολὺ μάλιστα ἄγαμαι σέ of those whom I meet with, I admire you by far the most P. Pr. 361e, δηλοῖς δὲ καὶ ἐξ ὧν (for ἐκ τούτων ἃ) ζῇς you show it also by the life you lead D. 18.198. But εἰδέναι τὴν δύναμιν (τούτων) ἐφ' οὓς ἂν ἴωσιν to discover the strength of those against whom they are to proceed X. A. 5.1.8. Cp. E. Ion 560 (in cross2488) where οἵ τούτων οἵ).

b. Dative: τοῦτο δ' ὅμοιόν ἐστιν ᾧ (for τούτῳ δ) νῦν δὴ ἐλέγετο this is like that which was said just now P. Ph. 69a, ἐμμένομεν οἷς (for τούτοις ἃ) ὡμολογήσαμεν δικαίοις οὖσιν ἢ οὔ; do we abide by what we agreed was just, or not? P. Cr. 50a. But διὰ τὸ ἀναγκαῖον αὐτοῖς εἶναι διαλέγεσθαι (τούτοις) παρ' ὧν λάβοιεν τὸν μισθόν because it is necessary for them to give lessons to those from whom they expect to receive their fee X. M. 1.2.6.
