Acts 24:10 NEUSANTOS AUTW TOU hHGEMONOS LEGEIN

 

Am I correct in reading this entire phrase as a modified genitive absolute? 

In other words, the genitive absolute is NEUSANTOS TOU hHGEMONOS  

But AUTW LEGEIN completes NEUSANTOS and is added as an extension to the
"absolute" nature of the construction?

 

Similarly. 

Acts 24:25  DIALEGOMENOU DE AUTOU PERI DIKAIOSUNHS KAI EGKRATEIAS KAI TOU
KRIMATOS TOU MELONTOS EMFOBOS GENOMENOS 

 

Am I correct in reading this entire passage as another modified genitive
absolute? In other words that the "absolute" nature  of DIALEGOMENOU AUTOU
encompasses it all?

 

Thanks!
