οὐ σχολὴ αὐτῷ: a customary announcement to unwelcome visitors. In Cic. de Senec. 10, Cato remarks nemo adhuc convenire me voluit, cui fuerim occupatus. Symp. 212d, when a company of revellers knocks at the door late at night, Agatho bids his servants, ἐὰν μέν τις τῶν ἐπιτηδείων , καλεῖτε: εἰ δὲ μή, λέγετε, ὅτι οὐ πίνομεν, ἀλλὰ ἀναπαυόμεθα (have gone to bed) ἤδη.—

αὐτῷ: himself; so slaves called their masters, pupils their teachers, parasites their patrons. Cf. Poll. iii. 74 Ἀριστοφάνης μέντοι κατὰ τὴν τῶν πολλῶν συνήθειαν τὸν δεσπότην αὐτὸν κέκληκεν, also the αὐτὸς ἔφη, ipse dixit of the pupils of Protagoras.
