At Claud. Cons. Stil. II 224, elusa should be read for elusae. This conjecture entails the coordination of an adjective, auidae (223), functioning as a secondary predicate of the subject, and an ablative absolute, tantos … noui spe consulis annos / elusa (223s.), functioning with concessive force – an exceptional instance of an already uncommon phenomenon, viz. the coordination of two functionally non-equivalent phrases belonging to different lexical categories.
