It will be seen that the apodosis here (444) may consist of any future expression,—the future indicative, the imperative, the subjunctive in exhortations and prohibitions, the infinitive in any future sense, the potential optative with ἄν, or the optative in a wish. It may also contain a present indicative including a reference to the future, like χρή or δεῖ or the verbal in τέος, or the present used emphatically for the future, like ὁμολογῶ above quoted (444) from XEN. Cyr. v. 5, 13 , or παῦλά ἐστι in PLAT. Rep. 473D.
