[Used] with a dative.[1] Demosthenes used this for "straightway" and "on the spot", and in his treatise For Orators he says: "death, you see, is not a piteous plight to those who think rightly; for as soon as it comes to someone he has knowledge of everything".[2] Aeschines [uses it] for "at the very time in which" in the [speech] Against Ktesiphon: "how he sold, for thirty mnai, both the insult against him and at the same time the people's vote of censure".[3] Also Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Meidias.[4] And in Antiphon a(/ma is assigned the same meaning. For he says in Proems: "but if the matter seems better for me then, and at the same time I shall provide testimonies of excellence".[5] And in Demosthenes in the [speech] On the Crown: "but as he has resorted to all blames and blasphemies at the same time".[6]
