Greek Particles

Hugh Lloyd-Jones, Blood for the Ghosts: Classical Influences in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries (Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1983), p. 82:
We are told that when Gaisford said to his pretty daughter 'You can't turn down Jelf; he knows more about γε than any man in Oxford', Miss Gaisford is said to have replied that she knew something about μέν.
Transliterated, γε is ge and μέν is mén. Jelf was probably Richard William Jelf.
