282. In AR. Ach. 343 is the single case of ὅπως μή with a present tense, expressing a suspicion and apprehension concerning a present ground of fear: ἀλλ᾽ ὅπως μή ν᾽ τοῖς τρίβωσιν ἐγκάθηνταί που λίθοι, but I am afraid they now have stones hidden somewhere in their cloaks. This bears the same relation to the common ὅπως μή with the future (272) that φοβοῦμαι μὴ πάσχουσιν, I fear that they are suffering (369, AR. Ach. 1), bears to φοβοῦμαι μὴ πάσχωσιν, I fear that they may suffer (365); and the same that μὴ τοῦτο ἐατέον ἐστί (269) bears to μὴ σκεπτέον (265).
