561. The indicative in the construction of 525, referring simply to the present or past, cannot be affected by assimilation, as this would change its time. E.g. Ὑμεῖς δ᾽ ἕλοισθε τι καὶ τῇ πόλει καὶ ἅπασι συνοίσειν ὑμῖν μέλλει, “and may you choose what is likely to benefit the state and all of you.” DEM. iii. 36.Compare this with DEM. ix. 76, τι δ᾽ ὑμῖν δόξειε (so Σ originally), τοῦτ̓, πάντες θεοὶ, συνενέγκοι, whatever you may decide, may this be for our good.

In SOPH. Ant. 373, ὃς τάδ᾽ ἔρδει would belong here; but ὃς τάδ᾽ ἔρδοι (Laur.), =εἴ τις τάδ᾽ ἔρδοι, falls under 558.
