Ellipsis of Neither before Nor, One before Other.

“(Neither) He nor that affable familiar ghost.

“But (neither) my five wits nor my five senses can
Dissuade one foolish heart from seeing thee.” Ib. 141. “A thousand groans . . .
Came (one) on another's neck.” Ib. 131.

Pomp. You will not bail me then, sir.
Lucio. (Neither) Then, Pompey, nor now.
