Phrynichus fr. 27 K-A: a pun

Classical Quarterly 48 (01):291- (1998)
Punning on names was common in Old Comedy. Aristophanes punned on the name of Lamachus, who died at Syracuse . In the same play he made the famous joke, ‘some went to Kamarina, others to Gela, and some to Katagela’—‘an invention of the poet's from the fact that the men's officers laughed at them’
