Final clauses were developed from original coördination.

θάπτε με ὅττι τάχιστα· πύλα_ς Ἀίδα_ο περήσω bury me with all speed; let me pass the gates of Hades Ψ 71, where we have a sentence of will added without any connective; and (negative) ἀπόστιχε μή τι νοήσῃ Ἣρη depart lest Hera observe aught A 522 (originally let Hera not observe anything, cross1802). Even in Attic, where subordination is regular, the original form of coördination can be (theoretically) restored, as in καί σε πρὸς . . . θεῶν ἱκνοῦμαι μὴ προδοὺς ἡμᾶς γένῃ and I entreat thee by the gods | do not forsake us S. Aj. 588. We can no longer trace the original coördination with ἵνα and ὡς.
