Many verbs ordinarily construed with the accusative are also followed by a genitive of a person, apparently dependent on the verb but in reality governed by an accusative, generally a neuter pronoun or a dependent clause.

Ἀθηναῖοι σφῶν ταῦτα οὐκ ἀποδέξονται the Athenians will not be satisfied with them in this T. 7.48, ὂ μέμφονται μάλιστα ἡμῶν which they most censure in us 1. 84, εἰ ἄγασαι τοῦ πατρὸς ὅσα πέπρα_χε if you admire in my father what he has done (the actions of my father) X. C. 3.1.15, διαθεώμενος αὐτῶν ὅσην χώρα_ν ἔχοιεν contemplating how large a country they possess X. A. 3.1.19, θαυμάζω τῶν στρατηγῶν ὅτι οὐ πειρῶνται ἡμῖν ἐκπορίζειν σι_τηρέσιον I wonder that the generals do not try to supply us with money for provisions 6. 2. 4, ἐνενόησε δὲ αὐτῶν καὶ ὡς ἐπηρώτων ἀλλήλους he took note also how they asked each other questions X.
