328.Ὅπως.) Ὅπως does not occur in Homer in pure final clauses with either κέ or ἄν. Ὅπως ἄν final with the subjunctive appears first in Aeschylus, and remains in good use in Attic poetry and prose, being almost the only final expression found in the formal language of the Attic inscriptions. One case of ὅκως ἄν occurs in Herodotus. E.g. Φύλασσε τἀν οἴκῳ καλῶς, ὅπως ἂν ἀρτίκολλα συμβαίνῃ τάδε, watch what goes on in the house, that these things may work harmoniously. AESCH.

Διὰ τῆς σῆς χώρας ἄξεις ἡμᾶς, ὅπως ἂν εἰδῶμεν, κ.τ.λ. XEN. Cyr. v. 2, 21. Καί φατε αὐτὸν τοιοῦτον εἶναι, ὅπως ἂν φαίνηται ὡς κάλλιστος καὶ ἄριστος. Symp. 199A.

Εὐσεβοῦμεν καὶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην ἀσκοῦμεν, οὐχ ἵνα τῶν ἀλλων ἔλαττον ἔχωμεν, ἀλλ᾽ ὅπως ἂν ὡς μετὰ πλείστων ἀγαθῶν τὸν βίον διάγωμεν.
