— In comparisons, with atque, ac, or et, more rarely with nisi and quam; with the latter, in good class. authors, only when preceded by a neg. clause, or by an interrog. implying a neg.; cf. Ruhnk. ad Ter. And. 3, 3, 13; instead of quam, the comp. abl. or praeter, and similar words, sometimes appear, other than, different from, etc. With atque, ac, or et: illi sunt alio ingenio atque tu, Plaut.

Matth. Gr. 903; Hoogev. ad Vig. p. 475; Kuhn. Gr. Gr. II. p. 825): tribunatus P. Sestii nihil aliud nisi meum nomen causamque sustinuit, Cic. Sest. 6, 13: ut nihil aliud nisi de hoste ac de laude cogitet, id. Imp. Pomp. 22, 64; Liv. 2, 8: et hostes quidem nihil aliud (i. e. nullā aliā re factā) quam perfusis vano timore Romanis citato agmine abeunt, id. 2, 63; 31, 24: sed ab lictore nihil aliud quam prehendere prohibito, cum conversus in Patres impetus esset, id. 2, 29: ut domo abditus nihil aliud quam per edicta obnuntiaret, Suet.

—(η) With praeterquam: cum aliud, praeterquam de quo retulissent, decemviri dicere prohiberent, Liv. 3, 40. Esp. In distributive-clauses repeated even several times, and also interchanged with non nulli, quidam, ceteri, pars, partim, etc., the one ... the other; plur., some ... others: quid potes dicere cur alia defendas, alia non cures? Cic. Phil. 2, 111: latera tegentes alios, alios praegredientes amicos, id. ib. 13, 4: cum alii fossas complerent, alii defensores vallo depellerent, Caes. B. G. 3, 25; id. B. C. 1, 55: alii experimentorum notitiam necessariam esse contendunt, alii non satis potentem usum esse proponunt, Cels. prooem.: quae minus tuta erant, alia fossis, alia vallis, alia turribus muniebat, Liv. 32, 5; so Vulg. Matt. 13, 5 sqq.; ib. 1 Cor. 12, 10; Cels. 3, 3, enumerating the different kinds of fever, repeats aliae seventeen times: cum aliis Q. Frater legatus, aliis C. Pomptinus legatus, reliquis M.

Verr. 2, 5, 56, § 146: alias bestias nantes, alias volucres, serpentes quasdam, quasdam esse gradientes; earum ipsarum partim solivagas, partim congregatas; immanes alias, quasdam autem cicures, non nullas abditas, id.

E. 1, 65: alii superstantes proeliarentur, pars occulti muros subruerent, Tac. H. 4, 23.

—Sometimes alius is omitted in one clause: Helvetii eā spe dejecti navibus junctis, alii vadis Rhodani, etc., Caes. B. G. 1, 8: Veientes ignari in partem praedae suae vocatos deos, alios votis ex urbe suā evocatos, etc., Liv. 5, 21; Plin. 2, 43, 44, § 114: castra metari placuit, ut opus et alii proelium inciperent, Tac.

Pan. 72: aliud est male dicere, aliud accusare, Cic. Cael. 3; id.

— Alius repeated in another case, or with its derivatives, aliter, alias, alio, alibi, aliunde, etc. (but never with its derivatives in Tac.), in imitation of the Greek (cf. L. and S. s. v. ἄλλος, and Ochsn. Eclog. 110): simul alis alid aliunde rumitant inter se, Naev. ap. Fest. pp. 135 and 225; cf. Bothe, Fragm.

Act. 19, 32: illi alias aliud iisdem de rebus sentiunt, now this, now that, Cic. de Or. 2, 7 fin.: aliter ab aliis digeruntur, id. ib. 2, 19; Vulg. 3 Reg. 22, 20: equites alii aliā dilapsi sunt, some in this way, some in that, Liv. 44, 43: cum alii alio mitterentur, id. 7, 39: Alis alibi stantes, omnes tamen adversis volneribus conciderunt, Sall. ap. Charis. 2, p. 133: jussit alios alibi fodere, Liv. 44, 33; Vulg. Sap. 18, 18.

— Alius ex alio, super alium, post alium, one after another; so often of the connection between ideas: ut aliud ex alio incidit, occurrit, etc., Ter. Heaut. 3, 3, 37: aliud ex alio succurrit mihi, Cic. Fragm. C. 12: alid ex alio reficit natura, Lucr. 1, 263; 5, 1305; 5, 1456: sed, ut aliud ex alio, mihi non est dubium, quin, etc., Cic. Att. 16, 14, Plin. Pan. 18, 1: ex alio in aliud vicissitudo atque mutatio, Cic. Tusc. 5, 24, 69: alias ex aliis nectendo moras, Liv. 7, 39: aliam ex aliā prolem, Verg. G. 3, 65; id.

Ner. 49: deinde ab eo magistratu alium post alium sibi peperit, Sall. J. 63, 5.

— Alius atque alius or alius aliusque, the one and the other; now this, now that; different: eadem res saepe aut probatur aut reicitur, alio atque alio elata verbo, Cic. Or. 22, 72: alio atque alio loco requiescere, in different places, Sall. J. 72, 2: inchoata res aliis atque aliis de causis dilata erat, Liv. 8, 23: aliud ejus subinde atque aliud facientes initium, Sen.

—In Sall. also alius deinde alius or alius post alius: saepe tentantes agros alia deinde alia loca petiverant, J. 18, 7: alias deinde alias morae causas facere, id. ib. 36, 2: aliis post aliis minitari, id. ib. 55, 8.

— Of another kind or nature, i. e. different; hence, alium facere, to make different, to change, transform; and alium fleri, to become different, to be wholly changed: nunc haec dies aliam vitam affert, alios mores postulat, Ter. And. 1, 2, 18 (aliam vitam pro diversam, contrariam, Don.): alium nunc censes esse me atque olim cum dabam, id. ib. 3, 3, 13: Huic aliud mercedis erit, Verg. E. 6, 26: longe alia mihi mens est, Sall.

Fam. 11, 12: mutaberis in virum alium, Vulg. 1 Reg. 10, 6; cf. supra, II. A. fin.

—Hence, in alia omnia ire, transire, or discedere, sc. vota, to differ from the thing proposed; and in gen., to reject or oppose it, to go over to the opposite side: qui hoc censetis, illuc transite; qui alia omnia, in hanc partem: his verbis praeit ominis videlicet causā, ne dicat: qui non censetis, Fest. p. 221; Plin. Ep. 8, 14, 19: frequens eum senatus reliquit et in alia omnia discessit, Cic. Fam. 10, 12: de tribus legatis frequentes ierunt in alia omnia, id. ib. 1, 2 Manut.: cum prima M. Marcelli sententia pronunciata esset, frequens senatus in alia omnia iit, Cael. ap. Cic. Fam. 8, 13: discessionem faciente Marcello, senatus frequens in alia omnia transiit, Hirt. B. G. 8, 53: aliud or alias res agere, v. ago, II. 7.

— Of that which remains of a whole, = reliquus, ceteri, the rest, the remainder: Divitiaco ex aliis Gallis maximam fidem habebat, Caes. B. G. 1, 41: inter primos atrox proelium fuit, alia multitudo terga vertit, Liv. 7, 26: vulgus aliud trucidatum, id. 7, 19; 2, 23; so id. 24, 1: legiones in testudinem glomerabantur et alii tela incutiebant, Tac. H. 3, 31; id. A. 1, 30; 3, 42: cum alios incessus hostis clausisset, unum reliquum aestas impediret, id. ib. 6, 33 al.

— Like alter, one of two, the other of two: huic fuerunt filii nati duo, alium servus surpuit, etc., Plaut. Capt. prol. 8; cf. id. ib. arg. 2 and 9: eis genus, aetas, eloquentia prope aequalia fuere; magnitudo animi par, item gloria, sed alia alii, Sall. C. 54, 1 Kritz: duo Romani super alium alius corruerunt, one upon the other, Liv. 1, 25, 5: ita duo deinceps reges, alius aliā viā, civitatem auxerunt, each in a different way, id. 1, 21, 6; 24, 27: marique alio Nicopolim ingressus, Tac. A. 5, 10 (Ionio, Halm); so, alias partes fovere, the other side, id. H. 1, 8.

—Also in the enumeration of the parts of any thing: Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam Celtae, Caes. B. G. 1, 1 Herz.: classium item duo genera sunt: unum liburnarum, aliud lusoriarum, Veg. 2, 1 (cf. in Gr. μείναντες δὲ ταύτην τὴν ἡμέραν, τῇ ἄλλῃ ἐπορεύοντο, Xen. Anab. 3, 4, 1; and so the Vulg.: Aliā die profecti, the next day, Act. 21, 8).

—Hence, alius with a proper name used as an appell. (cf. alter): ne quis alius Ariovistus regno Galliarum potiretur, a second Ariovistus, Tac. H. 4, 73 fin.: alius Nero, Suet. Tit. 7.

— A peculiar enhancement of the idea is produced by alius with a neg. and the comp.: mulier, quā mulier alia nulla est pulchrior, than whom no other woman is more beautiful, to whom no other woman is equal in beauty, Plaut. Merc. 1, 1, 100: facinus, quo non fortius ausit alis, Cat. 66, 28: Fama malum quā non aliud velocius ullum, Verg. A. 4, 174: quo neque melius neque amplius aliud in naturā mortalium est, Sall. J. 2, 4: quo non aliud atrocius visum, Tac. A. 6, 24: (Sulla) neque consilio neque manu priorem alium pati, Sall. J. 96, 3: neque majus aliud neque praestabilius invenias, id. ib. 1, 2; Liv. 1, 24: non alia ante Romana pugna atrocior fuit, id. 1, 27; 2, 31; Tac. A. 6, 7 al.; cf. under aliter, 2. b. ζ.

—Hence the advv. aliō, adv. (an old dat. form, designating direction to a place; cf.: eo, quo), elsewhither (arch.), elsewhere, to another place, person, or thing, ἄλλοσε (class., esp. among poets; but not found in Lucr. or Juv.). In gen. Of place: fortasse tu profectus alio fueras, Ter. Eun. 2, 2, 49: ut ab Norbā alio traducerentur, Liv. 32, 2: translatos alio maerebis amores, Hor. Epod. 15, 23: decurrens alio, id. S. 2, 1, 32: nam frustra vitium vitaveris illud, Si te alio pravum detorseris, id. ib. 2, 2, 55.

—With quo: Arpinumne mihi eundum sit, an quo alio, to some other place, Cic. Att. 9, 17: si quando Romam aliove quo mitterent legatos, Liv. 38, 30.

— Of persons or things (cf. alias, alibi, alicunde, etc.): illi suum animum alio conferunt, Ter. Heaut. 2, 4, 10 (cf. Plaut. Merc. 2, 2, 62: ne ad illam me animum adjecisse sentiat): ne quando iratus tu alio conferas, id. Eun. 3, 1, 60 Don.: hi narrata ferunt alio, Ov. M. 12, 57: tamen vocat me alio (to another subject) jam dudum tacita vestra exspectatio, Cic. Clu. 23, 63; Cic. Verr. 2, 1, 53, § 139: sed, si placet, sermonem alio transferamus, id. de Or. 1, 29, 133: quoniam alio properare tempus monet, Sall. J. 19, 2; so Tac. A. 1, 18 al.

— Of purpose or design: appellet haec desideria naturae: cupiditatis nomen servet alio, for another purpose, Cic. Fin. 2, 9, 27: hoc longe alio spectabat, looked quite elsewhere, had a far different design, Nep. Them. 6, 3.

— Alio ... alio, in one way ... in another; hither ... thither, = huc ... illuc: hic (i. e. in eā re) alio res familiaris, alio ducit humanitas, Cic. Off. 3, 23, 89: alio atque alio, in one way and another: nihil alio atque alio spargitur, Sen. Brev. Vit. 11, 2.

Aug. 98 Ruhnk.: quo alio nisi ad nos confugerent? Liv. 39, 36, 11; cf. Hand, Turs. I. pp. 232-234.

— aliā, adv. (sc. viá), in another way, in a different manner (in the whole ante-class. and class. per. dub.); for in Plaut. Rud. prol. 10, aliuta has been proposed; in Lucr. 6, 986, Lachm. reads alio; in Liv. 21, 56, 2, Weissenb. alibi; and in id. 44, 43, 2, viā may be supplied from the preced. context; certain only in Don. ad Ter. Hec. 1, 2, 5; cf. Hand, Turs. I. p. 219.

aliās, adv. (acc. to Prisc. 1014 P., and Corss. Ausspr. I. p. 769, an acc. form like foras; but acc. to Herz. ad Caes. B. G. 5, 57, and Hab. Syn. 79, old gen. like paterfamilias, Alcmenas, etc. In the ante-class. per. rare; only once in Plaut., twice in Ter., twice in Varro; in the class. per. most freq. in Cic., but only three times in his orations; also in Plin.). Of time, at a time other than the present, whether it be in the past or (more freq.) in the future.

—In the future, freq. in contrast with nunc, in praesentiā, tum, hactenus: recte secusne, alias viderimus, Cic. Ac. 2, 44, 135: Hactenus haec: alias justum sit necne poema, Nunc, etc., Hor. S. 1, 4, 63: sed haec alias pluribus; nunc, etc., Cic. Div. 2, 2 fin.; Liv. 44, 36 fin.: quare placeat, alias ostendemus; in praesentiā, etc., Auct. ad Her. 3, 16, 28.

Att. 4, 2, 2: consilio numquam alias dato, Hor. C. 3, 5, 45: numquam ante alias, Liv. 2, 22, 7: non umquam alias ante tantus terror senatum invasit, id. 2, 9, 5; 1, 28, 4: si quando umquam ante alias, id. 32, 5 (where the four advv. of time are to be taken together): Saturnalibus et si quando alias libuisset, modo munera dividebat, Suet. Aug. 75.

— Alias ... alias, as in Gr. ἄλλοτε ... ἄλλοτε; ἄλλοτε μέν ... ἄλλοτε δέ, at one time ... at another; once ... another time; sometimes ... sometimes; now ... now: Alias me poscit pro illā triginta minas, Alias talentum magnum, Plaut. Curc. 1, 1, 63; so Varr. L. L. 8, § 76 Mull.; id. R. R. 2, 1, 15; Cic. Verr. 1, 46, 120: nec potest quisquam alias beatus esse, alias miser, id. Fin. 2, 27, 87: contentius alias, alias summissius, id. de Or. 3, 55, 212: cum alias bellum inferrent, alias inlatum defenderent, Caes. B. G. 2, 29; so id. ib. 5, 57 al.; it occurs four times in successive clauses in Cic. Inv. 1, 52, 99.

Sen. 15, 51: geminatio verborum habet interdum vim, leporem alias, id. de Or. 3, 54, 206: hoc alias fastidio, alias contumaciā, saepius imbecillitate, evenit, Plin. 16, 32, 58, § 134; 7, 15, 13, § 63.

—Sometimes one alias is omitted: illi eruptione tentatā alias cuniculis ad aggerem actis, etc., Caes. B. G. 3, 21; Plin. 26, 3, 7, § 13.

— Alias aliter, alias alius, etc. (cf. alius), at one time in one way ... at another in another; now so ... now otherwise; now this ... now that: et alias aliter haec in utramque partem causae solent convenire, Cic. Inv. 2, 13, 45: alii enim sunt, alias nostrique familiares fere demortui, id. Att. 16, 11 (Madv. interprets this of time): illi alias aliud iisdem de rebus judicant, id. de Or. 2, 7, 30; id. Or. 59, 200: (deos) non semper eosdem atque alias alios solemus venerari, id. Red. in Sen. 30: ut iidem versus alias in aliam rem posse accommodari viderentur, id. Div. 2, 54, 111.

— Saepe alias or alias saepe ... nunc, nuper, quondam, etc.; also: cum saepe alias ... tum, etc. (very common in Cic.): quod cum saepe alias tum nuper, etc., Cic. Tusc. 4, 4, 7: fecimus et alias saepe et nuper in Tusculano, id. ib. 5, 4, 11: quibus de rebus et alias saepe ... et quondam in Hortensii villā, id.

— Raro alias, rarely at other times, on other occasions: ut raro alias quisquam tanto favore est auditus, Liv. 45, 20; 3, 69; Tac. H. 1, 89.

— Non alias, at no other time, never, = numquam (a choice poet. expression, often imitated by the histt.): non alias caelo ceciderunt plura sereno Fulgura, never at any other time did so much lightning fall from a clear sky, Verg. G. 1, 487: non alias militi familiarior dux fuit, Liv. 7, 33; 45, 7: non alias majore mole concursum, Tac. A. 2, 46; 4. 69; 11, 31: non sane alias exercitatior Britannia fuit, id.
