Infinitive in Wishes.—The infinitive with a subject accusative may be used in the sense of the optative of wish, usually with the same ellipsis as in 2013 c.
θεοὶ πολῖται, μή με δουλεία_ς τυχεῖν
τὸν κυνηγέτην ἔχοντα ἐξιέναι . . . ἐλαφρὰ_ν ἐσθῆτα
a. The nominative with the infinitive (instead of the optative) after αι' γάρ occurs in Homer (η 311, ω 376).
