OF prepositions some will have an accusative after them, some an ablative, some both, according to their different signification.

And for an accusative after ad, a dative sometimes is used in poets; as, It clamor cœlo. Virg. Cœlo si gloria tollit Eneadum. Sil. for ad cœlum.
An ablative these, A, ab, abs, absque, cum, coram, de, e, ex, pro, præ, palàm, sine, tenus, which last is also put after his case, being most usually a genitive, if it be plural; as Capulo tenus. Aurium tenus.
These, both cases, In, sub, super, subter, clam, procul.
In, signifying to, towards, into, or against, requires an accusative; as Pisces emptos obolo in cœnam seni. Animus in Teucros benignus. Versa est in cineres Troja. In te committere tantum quid Troes potuere? Lastly, when it signifies future time, or for; as Bellum in trigesimum diem indixerunt. Designati consules in annum sequentum.

Super, over or upon, may have either case; as Super ripas Tiberis effusus. Sæva sedens super arma. Fronde super viridi.
So also may subter; as Pugnatum est super subterque terras. Subter densâ testudine. Virg. Clam patrem or patre. Procul muros. Liv. Patriâ procul.
