οὐδ᾽ ὥς, not even (I say) in that case,—repeating the supposition, “οὐδ᾽ εἰ θέλουσ᾽”. Cp. Il. 9.379 ff.οὐδ᾽ εἴ μοι δεκάκις τε καὶ εἰκοσάκις τόσα δοίη, ... οὐδέ κεν ὣς ἔτι θυμὸν ἐμὸν πείσει᾽ Ἀγαμέμνων”. Od. 22.61 ff. “οὐδ᾽ εἴ μοι πατρώϊα πάντ᾽ ἀποδοῖτε ...οὐδέ κεν ὣς ἔτι χεῖρας ἐμὰς λήξαιμι φόνοιο”.—Attic prose, too, used “καὶ ὥς”, ‘even in that case’ (Thuc. 1.44), “οὐδ᾽ ὥς” (id. 1. 132), etc.—“παρήσω. οὐ μή”, with the 2nd pers. fut. ind., prohibits; but with the 1st or 3rd pers. it can be used in emphatic denial, though the aor. subjunct. is more usual: El. 1052οὔ σοι μὴ μεθέψομαί ποτε”: see n. on O. C. 177. There is no reason, then, for suspecting the text (see cr. n.).
