ὅμως with μὴ παρόντος: it usu. follows the partic. (as 851, 1529), but sometimes precedes it, as Eur. Ion 734δέσποιν᾽ ὅμως οὖς᾿”. It would be possible, however, to take ὅμως with οἶδα: "but nevertheless (though my protection is needless)." Possibly it should be ὁμῶς, "equally" ( Ai. 1372κἀκεῖ κἀνθάδ᾽ ὢν... ὁμῶς”).
