The trouble with this equivalence is that "ca" is aorist, so doesn't get
the right effect. If we say that one event is simultaneous with the
aftermath of another, we do >not< exclude that they might overlap, because
the first event might have started before the second event ended.
To solve this problem, we must change your "ca" to "ca'o" which is obviously
circular. Sumti tcita ZAhO is truly sui generis. (3 langs, 1 sentence!)
