222. Ἄν never begins a sentence, or a clause before which a comma could stand. But it may directly follow a parenthetic clause, provided some part of its own clause precedes. E.g. Ἀλλ᾽ μέλ᾽ ἄν μοι σιτίων διπλῶν ἔδει, Pac. 137.So τὸ μέλλον, ἐπεὶ γένοιτ̓, ἂν κλύοις (or without the commas), the future you can hear when it comes, AESCH. Ag. 250.
