Aristophanes [writes]: "and then how did I not sneeze?"[1] Meaning 'did I not perceive'; for a sneeze [is] a sensation of the head; since those who touch the nostril with a thin straw sneeze, or they smell it after they bring it near. Thus, he is saying, the blow affected me in the manner in which a straw affects a nostril.

[1] Aristophanes Frogs 647 (web address 1), with comments derived from the scholia; see already at epsilon 2869. (Aristophanes uses here a verb, ptai/rw, related to the headword (cf. pi 3021); the headword itself, a masculine noun in the nominative singular noun, occurs only in the commentary.)
