    In the Apology Socrates refuses his image created by Aristophanes as illusory. It was parody of his person, but people overtaken these illusions as real. Socrates was by Aristophanes portrayed as strange person, who examines under earth and heaven, makes bad to be good and learn this the others. Socrates thanks to Aristophanes must refuse these nonsenses. This is the only my experience about a connection between Socrates and comedy. But the connection between nomos and physis can be understood as an environment in which Plato works. Ancient Greeks believed in harmony in all the universe including their society which must be only fulfilled.
