In subordinate clauses the action expressed by the aorist may be (a) contemporaneous, (b) antecedent, or (c) subsequent to that set forth by the main verb. The context alone decides in which sense the aorist is to be taken. (a) ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ ὃν ἐπέσχε ὅσα ἐδύνατο κατενόησε during the time he waited he learned all he could T. 1.138; (b) ἐτράποντο ἐς τὸν Πάνορμον, ὅθενπερ ἀνηγάγοντο they turned toward Panormus, the very place from which they had put out T. 2.92 (see cross1943); (c) ἐμάχοντο μέχρι οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι ἀπέπλευσαν they kept fighting until the Athenians had sailed away X. H. 1.1.3.
