The καί of εἰ καί may go closely with a following word. Here the meaning is either also or indeed; as εἰ καὶ δυνήσει γε if thou shalt also be able (besides having the will) S. Ant. 90, δεινόν γ' εἶπας, εἰ καὶ ζῇς θανών a strange thing truly hast thou uttered, if, though slain, thou indeed livest S. Aj. 1127. Where trajection is assumed (εἰ μὴ καί for εἰ καὶ μή) the καί is intensive, as εἰ μὴ καὶ νῦν . . . ἀλλά if not already . . . at least T. 2.11. 6, εἰ μὴ καὶ δέδρα_κεν unless he has actually done it 6. 60. 3.
