Reflexive Comparison.—The comparative followed by the reflexive pronoun in the genitive is used to denote that an object displays a quality in a higher degree than usual. The degree of increase is measured by comparison with the subject itself. αὐτός is often added to the subject: αὐτοὶ αὑτῶν εὐμαθέστεροι γίγνονται they learn more easily than before I. 15.267, πλουσιώτεροι ἑαυτῶν γιγνόμενοι becoming richer than they were before T. 1.8. Cp. cross1093.
