[*] 62. In questions with τί οὐ, expressing surprise that something is not already done, and implying an exhortation to do it, the aorist is sometimes used strangely like a future. E.g.
- “Τί οὖν οὐ διηγήσω ἡμῖν τὴν ξυνουσίαν;” “why then don't you tell us about the meeting?” PLAT. Prot. 310A.
- “Τί οὖν οὐ καὶ Πρόδικον καὶ Ἱππίαν ἐκαλέσαμεν;” “ why then don't we call Prodicus and Hippias too?” Ib. 317D.
- So “τί οὖν οὐ . . . ἐσκέψω;” Soph. 251 E.
- See also SOPH. O. T. 1003.
