Nominative: predicate NP
ἀνθρώπων ὁ σοφώτατος πρὸς θεὸν πίθηκος φανεῖται
‘The most wise among men looks like a monkey compared to a god, both where wisdom is concerned, where beauty is concerned and in all other respects.’ (Heraclit. Fr. (Diels-Kranz) 83)
The nominative signals a predicate NP, expressing a property or identity of the subject.
The predicate NP in the nominative is hardly ever accompanied by an article.
