AUTOS preceded by an article can mean; the same. (Mounce calls this the 
Identical Adjective.)
C.F.D. Moule says that Luke uses AUTOS without the article as an Identical 
Adjective. I read somewhere else (I forgot where) that Luke is the only NT 
writer that uses it that way.
Is it rare (or non-existant) in other Greek writers as well?
It seems strange that Luke, a Greek, would be the only NT writer to make use 
of a non-standard construction.
