ἐπίστασο φανὲν τοὔπος ὦδε know that the tale was thus set forth: ἐπίστασο ὡς φανὲν τοὔπος ὧδε, know that you may take the story to have been thus set forth: where ὡς merely points to the mental attitude which the subject of ἐπίστασο is to assume. Soph. Phil. 567 “ὡς ταῦτ᾽ ἐπίστω δρώμεν᾽, οὐ μέλλοντ᾽ ἔτι,” know that you may assume these things to be a-doing, not delayed: and Soph. Phil. 253, Soph. Phil. 415: below 956. So with the gen. abs.: Soph. Aj. 281 “ὡς ὧδ᾽ ἐχόντων τῶνδ᾽ ἐπίστασθαί σε χρή,” these things being so, you must view them in that belief.
