Name that case

Take a look at these two sentences:
A) I gave the book TO YOU.
B) I received the book FROM YOU.
In sentence A, "to you" would take the dative case. In sentence B, "from
you" would take a different case (I know there is a proper name, but I
can't remember what it is.)
The conlang I am working on uses the same case in both sentences,
basically "the second party involved in an act of transferral, neither
the agent nor patient of the verb." Is there a proper name for this
