[1] The earlier aorist stem of pai/zw "play, dance" was paisa- from paid-sa-. Cf. scholion on Aristophanes, Frogs 388, where the headword occurs (web address 1).
[2] In later Attic, paisa- was the aorist stem of pai/w "strike," and the aorist stem of pai/zw was paica- (formed by analogy with -zw-verbs from roots with gamma).
