Aristophanes in Clouds [sc. uses the phrase].[1] Meaning a)lla\ kai\ ga\r in Attic dialect; as Callimachus [wrote]: "you hear Hipponax [say]: 'Nay, for I have come.'"[2] Meaning, for I have come [kai\ ga\r h(/kw]. Also in Frogs, "Nay, for" [ou) ga\r a)lla/], meaning kai\ ga\r in Attic dialect. Meaning, for I am poorly [e)/xw ga\r kakw=s]. But he said, "Nay, for I am poorly"[3] [ou) ga\r, a)lla\ kai\ e)/xw]. But the a)lla\ is brought in in Frogs, too: "Nay, for one must obey."[4] Meaning, for one must obey [kai\ ga\r peiste/on]. Never, he is saying, ought you to say, but also to give, so that I will trust you, that you give me the same report. Also in Thesmophoriazusae: "nay, for strangely how full of persons in white the assembly was to see."[5]
