AdverbEdit

eōdem (not comparable)

  1. to the same (place, person, thing)
    • 45 BCE, Cicero, De finibus bonorum et malorum 2.102:
      Idemne potest esse dies saepius, qui semel fuit? Certe non potest. An eiusdem modi? Ne id quidem, nisi multa annorum intercesserint milia, ut omnium siderum eodem, unde profecta sint, fiat ad unum tempus reversio.
      Can a day again be, which already was? It assuredly cannot. Or even a similar day? Not even that can be, unless many thousands of years have passed, so that all the stars simultaneously return to the place whence they have moved.
