Παρὰ προσδοκίαν means "against expectation", "contrary to what is expected", i.e. the unexpected. Footnotes that use this term (e.g. In Lysistrata 59, 64, 66, BIRDS 11, 86, ECCLESIAZUSAE 64), are not always clear on what they want to say. They refer to occasions when Aristophanes ends a sentence in unexpected ways. Perhaps having a look at the examples above will let you understand easily how this expression is used. It is not a phrase that you will find in Aristophanes' text itself, but a philological expression describing a literary scheme.

Good evening, George.

I'm nearly finished the ebook, and am looking for a way to say 'The End' at the end of each play. The Methuen translation uses 'Exeunt omnes', but this doesn't seem appropriate for Greek plays. Is there a traditional way to say 'The End' for Greek plays?

Regards, Alex

No, there isn't any traditional way to say "the end", but, if your book will be in English, I mean the front cover, etc, you can have this too in English, "The End."
