ὡς “κ.τ.λ.”: “"as purposing that Argos should either possess the Theban land in honour, or exalt Thebes to the skies"” (by the glory of having defeated Argos). ὡς … Ἄργος … καθέξον ἢ … βιβῶν, acc. absol. in the personal constr., as O. T. 101 “ὡς τόδ᾽ αἷμα χειμάζον πόλιν”: Thuc. 6.24 “ἔρως ἐνέπεσε τοῖς πᾶσιν...ἐκπλεῦσαι...ὡς ἢ καταστρεψομένοις ἐφ᾽ ἃ ἔπλεον, ἢ οὐδὲν ἂν σφαλεῖσαν μεγάλην δύναμιν”, in the belief that they would reduce Sicily, or that at all events a great armament could suffer no disaster. Eur. Ion 964 “ΠΑΙΔ. σοὶ δ᾽ ἐς τί δόξ᾽ εἴσῆλθεν ἐκβαλεῖν τέκνον;—ΚΡΕΟΥΣΑ. ὡς τὸν θεὸν σώσοντα τόν γ᾽ αὑτοῦ γόνον”.
