P. and V. δίς.

Twice as large as: Ar. and P. διπλάσιος (gen.).

Twice as well: P. διπλασίῳ ἄμεινον.

Twice as great, or twice as much, adj.: P. δὶς τοσοῦτος (Thuc. 6, 37), V. δὶς τόσος.

Twice as much, adv.: V. δὶς τόσως, Ar. διπλασίως μᾶλλον (Ar. 1578).

Your father's house, glorious before, you have now made twice as glorious: V. πατρὸς δὲ καὶ πρὶν εὐκλεᾶ δόμον νῦν δὶς τόσως ἔθηκας εὐκλεέστεραν (Eur., Rhes. 159).

Surely these troubles are twice as many instead of single: V. ἆρʼ ἐστι ταῦτα δὶς τόσʼ ἐξ ἁπλῶν κακά; (Soph., Aj. 277).
