Description The rich and variegated documentation of Latin curse tablets, recently enriched of new founds offer very original proves of the use of comparison in Latin. In the Latin epigraphical evidence mainly curse tablets use the comparative clause introduced by quomodo – sic, quemadmodum – sic rarely also ita uti - sic in the so called simile formula, which is acting upon analogy, which is nowadays well attested from all provinces of the Roman Empire. This contribution pursue the phonetic-phonological, functional and semantic development of the Latin comparative conjunction quomodo.
