[*] 595. Ὥστε μή, however, as the ordinary form with the infinitive, may be used in indirect discourse (594), even with the future infinitive or the infinitive with ἄν. E.g. Τηλικαύτην ἡγεῖσθαι πόλιν οἰκεῖν τὸ μέγεθος, ὥστε μηδ᾽ ἂν ὁτιοῦν ᾖ δεινὸν πείσεσθαι. DEM. ix. 67. Ὤιμην οὕτως ἐμφανὴς εἶναι τοῖς ἀλαζονευομένοις πολεμῶν, ὥστε μηδέν᾽ ἄν ποτε γενέσθαι πιστὸν τῶν λεγόντων. ISOC. xii. 20: so xii. 144. In ISAE. iii. 51, ὥστε μηδὲ ἐκδοῦναι would have been the same in the direct form.
