A subordinate clause may be coördinate in structure.

ἐπεὶ δ' ἠσθένει Δα_ρεῖος καὶ ὑπώπτευε τελευτὴν τοῦ βίου, ἐβούλετό οἱ τὼ παῖδε παρεῖναι but when Darius was ill and suspected that his end was near, he wished his two sons to be by him X. A. 1.1.1.

a. So a relative clause, though properly subordinate, may be equivalent to a coördinating clause: εἰ δ' ὑ_μεῖς ἄλλο τι γνώσεσθε, ὃ μὴ γένοιτο, τίν' οἴεσθ' αὐτὴν ψυ_χὴν ἕξειν; but if you decide otherwise, —and may this never come to pass!— what do you think will be her feelings? D. 28.21. In such cases ὅς is equivalent to καὶ οὗτος, οὗτος δέ, οὗτος γάρ.
