μν́ησομαι is probably aor. subj., like “λάθωμαι”. For the subjunctive as an emphatic future in principal clauses see H. G. § 274 f. With the first person in affirmative sentences the subj. expresses a resolution on the part of the speaker; cf. Il. 9.121. It is possible that “μνήσομαι” is fut. indic. There is a similar doubt in Il. 2.488, Od. 4.240 “οὐκ ἂν ἐγὼ μυθήσομαι οὐδ᾽ ὀνομήνω”, Od. 6.126 “πειρήσομαι ἠδὲ ἴδωμαι”, Od. 12.383 “δύσομαι εἰς Ἀΐδαο καὶ ἐν νεκύεσσι φαείνω”, Od. 13.215 “ἀριθμήσω καὶ ἴδωμαι”. Cf. also on h. Dem. 366.
