Smyth can (#2928):
[face=spionic]nu/[/face] (enclitic; Epic and Cyprian), a still weaker form of [face=spionic]nu=n[/face], and less emphatic than [face=spionic]dh/[/face]. It is common in questions and appeals; less freqent in statements; as [face=spionic]ti/j nu[/face]; who now? Also after other particles, as [face=spionic]kai/ nu/ ke, h)= r(a/ nu[/face].
