The adjectives dignus, indignus, aptus, and idōneus can take a relative clause with the subjunctive - this is really an extension of the relative clause of characteristic, which we will explore in greater detail in this video. While poets might prefer to use an infinitive phrase, this specific type of relative clause is common in prose.

I've added a new activity over at hexameter.co called Rapid Scan. My goal is to help create a natural ability at scanning lines quickly and naturally. You have five minutes to get as many lines correct as you can (don't worry, you get easy lines to start), and your attempt is over when you get three lines incorrect. Subscribers get unlimited access to Rapid Scan, and other users are limited to just three attempts each day. Climb the charts! Challenge yourself!
This video is a sequel to rule 55, since the adjectives dignus and indignus take an ablative of respect (also known as the ablative of specification), to show what something is worth (or unworthy) of. I hope this video is worthy of your time, and I'm worthy of your views!

Ucalegon is a small character in Vergil's Aeneid. He shows up once during the sack of Troy, simply because his house is on fire. And then that's it. Except that over the course of the last two thousand years, his name has become associated with his appearance in the Aeneid, and the term "Ucalegon" has come to mean someone who suffers the same fate: a neighbor whose house is on fire.
