360. A singular use of ὅπως and the future indicative with δεῖ σε in place of the regular infinitive occurs in SOPH. Aj. 556,δεῖ σε ὅπως δείξεις” , for δεῖ σε δεῖξαι, and Ph. 54, τὴν Φιλοκτήτου σε δεῖ ψυχὴν ὅπως λόγοισιν ἐκκλέψεις λέγων. So Cratinus, Ph. Fr. 108, δεῖ σ᾽ ὅπως εὐσχήμονος ἀλεκτρυόνος μηδὲν διοίσεις. This would be like δέομαι ὅπως (355) except for the object σέ, which is like σέ in δεῖ σε τούτου, the ὅπως clause representing the genitive.
