οὔτε . . . τέ on the one hand not . . . but, not only not . . . but (cp. neque . . . et). The τέ clause often denotes the contrary of that set forth in the οὔτε clause (so far from). Thus, οὔτε διενοήθην πώποτε ἀποστερῆσαι ἀποδώσω τε so far from ever thinking to deprive them of their pay I will give it to them X. A. 7.7.48, ὤμοσαν . . . μήτε προδώσειν ἀλλήλους σύμμαχοί τε ἔσεσθαι they swore that they would not betray one another and that they would be allies 2. 2. 8. So οὔτε . . . οὔτε . . . τέ. τὲ . . . οὔτε is not used.

a. Sometimes the negative may be added in the τέ clause: οὔτε ἐκεῖνος ἔτι κατενόησε τό τε μαντεῖον οὐκ ἐδήλου neither did he stop to consider and the oracle would not make it plain T. 1.126.
