332. A final clause may stand without a leading verb expressed, when the omission can easily be supplied; as ὅτι ἦρξα, μὴ ἀποδημήσω; ἵνα γε μὴ προλαβὼν χρήματα τῆς πόλεως πράξεις δρασμῷ χρήσῃ, because I held an office, may I not leave the country? No: that you may not take to flight, etc. AESCHIN. iii. 21.
