450. By far the most common Homeric form with the sub junctive in future conditions is εἴ κε, often εἰ μέν κε, εἰ δέ κε, etc. (218). Ἤν also is frequent, being the only Homeric contraction of εἰ ἄν. Εἰ δ᾽ ἄν occurs in Il. iii. 288, and εἴ περ ἄν in Il. v. 224 and 232. Ἤν περ γάρ κ᾽ ἐθέλωσιν is found in Od. xviii. 318.
