latter than

Is there any context in which “latter than” could be used? <——-Question from original thread title added to post by moderator (Florentia52)——->
There many examples of the restrictive use of the comparative adjective "latter" (Ex. I prefer the latter picture to the former.), but I can't think of any good sentences with the word in predicative use, unlike "later" (Ex. "The revolt of the Egyptian was later than this." "The painter fell on hard times in his later years.")

    It’s up to you to provide the example sentence, Exp. If you can’t think of one yourself and can’t find any by searching, that may answer your question.
