Temporal δή often, especially with καί, approximates in meaning to ἤδη already. Thus, ὁ δὲ θανὼν κεύθει κάτω δὴ γῆς but he is dead and already is hidden beneath the earth S. O. T. 967, ὁπότε . . . θηρῴης καὶ δὴ δύο ἡμέρα_ς when you have hunted (already) for two days X. C. 2.4.17, καὶ δὴ λέγω σοι well I will tell thee (without further ado) S. Ant. 245. So also in τέλος δή, νῦν δή.—Of succession, δή means next.—Poetic δαὖτε (δὴ αὖτε) means now again.
