[*drw/ntwn] instead of dra/twsan,[1] xrh/sqwn instead of xrh/sqwsan ["let them use"].[2] The form is characteristic of Attic speakers, just as they [said] poiou/ntwn instead of poiei/twsan ["let them make"],[3] fronou/ntwn instead of fronei/twsan ["let them think"],[4] and noou/ntwn [instead of] noei/twsan ["let them consider"].[5]

= Phrynichus, Praeparatio sophistica fr. 302. The entry contrasts Attic forms of the third person plural present imperative with later forms; see Smyth ยง466aD at web address 1. Adler suggests that the primary instance given stems from scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds, as the second one certainly does (lines 453 and 439 respectively).
