Anaphoric Interjections (?)

  • Civis Illustris

Can anyone here recall reading an example of a Latin interjection used as an anaphor, meaning that instead of introducing a thought, idea or thing (which would be the usual cataphoric usage of an interjection) it, rather, refers back to a thought, idea or thing already mentioned in the text?

sī rēctē intellegō, tālia?

Alc. Lāvistī.
Am. Quid postquam lāvī?
Al. Accubuistī.
S. Euge optimē.
(Plaut. Amphitruō 802)

vel:

Catōnem vērō quis nostrōrum ōrātōrum, quī quidem nunc sunt, legit? aut quis nōvit omnīnō? at quem virum, dī bonī!
(Cic. Brūtus 65.3)
