P. and V. ἔργον, τό, πρᾶγμα, τό. Event: P. and V. συμφορά, ἡ, Ar. and P. συντυχία, ἡ. Truth: P. and V. ἀλήθεια, ἡ, τἀληθές. As a matter of fact (as opposed to apparently): P. and V. ἔργῳ. Those who look for the facts of the case: P. οἱ τὴν ἀκρίβειαν ζητοῦντες τῶν πραγμάτων (Antiphon, 139). You seek to discover the facts of the case: P. ζητεῖτε εὐρεῖν τὴν ἀλήθειαν τῶν γεγενημένων (Isae. 70). Really: P. and V. ὄντως, P. τῷ ὀντί. As the facts themselves proved: P. ὡς αὐτὸ τὸ ἔργον ἐδήλωσε (Dem. 928). It is not the same thing to state a surmise and proclaim what is said as a fact: V.τοὐτὸ δʼ οὐχὶ γίγνεται δόκησιν εἰπεῖν κἀξακριβῶσαι λόγον (Soph., Trach. 425).
