|English term or phrase: Marcus has asked why Gaius had come to Rome|
|Is an extract from the texy Latin via Ovid|
|Marcus quaesivit cur Gaius Romam venisset.|
Historical sequence of tenses in indirect question ('venisset' is pluperfect subjunctive because the action or state of the verb in the subordinate clause is complete; had it been incomplete, the imperfect subjunctive would have been proper).
'Romam' without 'ad' because prepositions indicating place to which are omitted with the names of cities, towns, small islands, and a few other words (especially 'domus' and 'rus').
