261. Rule for Ablative of Personal Agent. The ablative with the preposition ā or ab is used with passive verbs to indicate the person by whom the act is performed.
Note. The literal meaning of ā Rōmānīs is from the Romans, but in our idiom by the Romans is a better translation.
262. Ablative of Means and Ablative of Agent Compared. Compare the two sentences:
In the first sentence ā Rōmānīs is the ablative of personal agent; in the second nāvigiō is the ablative of means. To aid in distinguishing these two constructions, which are often confused, observe the following facts:
a. The agent is a person; the means is a thing.
b. The ablative of personal agent has the preposition ā or ab; the ablative of means has no preposition.
c. The ablative of personal agent is used only with a passive verb; with the ablative of means the verb may be either active or passive.
