347. As relics of the Homeric usage we find ὡς with the subjunctive in sentences of this class in EUR. Med. 461, I. T. 467, PLAT. Rep. 349 C; and with the optative in AESCH. Prom. 203 (see 353, below). Herodotus has ὡς with the future indicative in iii. 84, 159, vii. 161 (in the last ὡς στρατηγήσεις γλίχεαι). Herodotus has ὡς ἄν with the subjunctive in iii. 85, μηχανῶ ὡς ἂν σχῶμεν τοῦτο τὸ γέρας, which is cited as the solitary case of ὡς ἄν in these object clauses after Homer, except in Xenophon (351). See also Sept. 627, Eum. 771; SOLON xiii. 38; SOPH. Ant. 215 (in 281, above).
