ὡς with the gen. absol. (cp. 1063 n.) marks the point of view which is to be taken: ‘in the certainty that matters stand thus.’ πάρεστι βουλ. τὰ ἄλλα, ‘ye may consider of the rest’: i.e., such are the facts; it only remains to deal with them as may seem best. βουλεύειν, to form plans, decide on a course of action, O. T. 619: τὰ ἄλλα, adverbial acc. of respect, ‘as to what remains,’ instead of “περὶ τῶν ἄλλων” ( Ai. 551 “τὰ δ᾽ ἄλλ᾽ ὅμοιος”). ὧδ᾽ ἐχόντων, neut. gen. abs., without a subject: Ai. 981 “ὡς ὧδ᾽ ἐχόντων... ι πάρα στενάζειν”: El. 1344 “τελουμένων εἴποιμ᾽ ἄν”: Aesch. Pers. 170 “πρὸς τάδ᾽, ὡς οὕτως ἐχόντων τῶνδε, σύμβουλοι λόγου ι τοῦδέ μοι γένεσθε, Πέρσαι”. Thuc. 1.116 “ἐσαγγελθέντων ὅτι...νῆες...πλέουσιν”.
