ὡς ὧδ᾽ ἐχόντων “κ.τ.λ.”: “ὡς” marks the point of view to be taken: the gen. abs. presents the state of the facts as the condition under which one's opinion must be formed. Cp. Aesch. P. V. 760“ὡς τοίνυν ὄντων τῶνδέ σοι μαθεῖν πάρα”. Eur. Med. 1311“ὡς οὐκέτ᾽ ὄντων σῶν τέκνων φρόντιζε δή”. Thuc. 7. 15§ 1 “ὡς..τῶν στρατιωτῶν..μὴ μεμπτῶν γεγενημένων οὕτω τὴν γνώμην ἔχετε”. Xen. An. 1. 3. 6“ὡς ἐμοῦ οὖν ἰόντος ὅπῃ ἂν καὶ ὑμεῖς, οὕτω τὴν γνώμην ἔχετε”. See also below, 904, 981.
