ἆρᾰ,
  interrogative Particle, implying anxiety or impatience, = Epic dialect and Lyric poetry ἦ ῥα:
__1 alone, it simply marks the question, the nature of which is determined by the context: e.g. in Demosthenes Orator 35.44 a negative answer is implied in the question ἆρ᾽ ἂν οἴεσθε..; but an affirmative in Xenophon Historicus “Institutio Cyri (Cyropaedia)” 4.6.4 ἆ. βέβληκα δὶς ἐφεξῆ; compare ἆρ᾽ εὐτυχεῖς.. ἢ δυστυχεῖ; Euripides Tragicus “Phoenissae” 424.—To make it plainly neg., we have ἆ. μή..; Aeschylus Tragicus “Septem contra Thebas” 208, Plato Philosophus “Phaedo” 64c ; and to make it plainly affirmative, ἆρ᾽ ο; ἆρ᾽ οὐχ; Sophocles Tragicus “Oedipus Coloneus” 791, “OT” 540 ; ἆρ᾽ οὐχ οὕτω; Plato Philosophus “Philebus” 11d.
__2 ἆ. οὖ; is used to draw an affirmative inference, prev. author “Grg.” 477a, “La.” 190b ; also when a negative answer is expected, prev. author “Chrm.” 159b ; with a negative, ἆρ᾽ οὖν οὐ..; prev. author “Phdr.” 263a, etc.
__3 in ἆρά γε, each Particle retains its force, γε serving to make the question more definite, Aristophanes Comicus “Plutus” 546, Xenophon Historicus “Memorabilia” 1.5.4, etc.
__4 less frequently with τίς interrogative, τίνος ποτ᾽ ἆρ᾽ ἔπραξε χειρί Sophocles Tragicus “Ajax” 905 ; τίδ᾽ ἆρ᾽ ἐγὼ σ; Euripides Tragicus “Iphigenia Aulidensis” 1228; τίς ἆρ᾽ ὁ φεύγω; Aristophanes Comicus “Vespae” 893 ; with ἤν, Euripides Tragicus “Rhesus” 118.
__5 in indirect questions, σκεψώμεθα τοῦτο ἆ... Plato Philosophus “Phaedo” 70e, compare “R.” 526c, al., Aristoteles Philosophus “Physica” 204b3, etc.
__II in Poets sometimes like{ἄρα}, Archilochus Lyricus 86, 89, Pindarus Lyricus “P.” 4.78, Aristophanes Comicus “Vespae” 3; τοιοῖσδε χρησμοῖς ἆ. χρὴ πεποιθένα; Aeschylus Tragicus “Choephori” 297, compare 435; τῷ δὲ ξιφήρης ἆρ᾽ ὑφειστήκει λόχος Euripides Tragicus “Andromache” 1114: in exclamations, βραδεῖαν ἡμᾶς ἆρ᾽ ὁ τήνδε τὴν ὁδὸν πέμπων ἔπεμψεν Sophocles Tragicus “Ajax” 738; ὀδυνηρὸς ἆρ᾽ ὁ πλοῦτος Euripides Tragicus “Phoenissae” 566, compare “El.” 1229, “Hipp.” 1086; ἦ δεινὸν ἆρ᾽ ἦν prev. author “fragment” 931; ἔμελλόν σ᾽ ἆ. κινήσειν Aristophanes Comicus “Nubes” 1301, compare “Ach.” 347.
__B In Prose, ἆ. almost always stands first in the sentence, but compare Plato Philosophus “Gorgias” 467e ; καὶ ὑπὲρ τούτων ἆ... Julianus Imperator “Orationes” 2.61c: in Poetry greater licence is taken, see above 1.4, 11.
