Advenis quom desideras

Having 2 verbs, does it make sense?


1 Answer 1


I would translate this as, "you arrive when you desire". Advenis is second person present, not imperative. Note that quom is an archaic spelling of classical cum.

Being a conjunction, quom introduces a second clause, and each clause normally has its own finite verb, so I see no issue there.

  • Now that desidero is not in subjunctive mood. It sounds to me more fit as a complaint than a concession
