After verbs meaning to consider, plan , and try ὄπως or ὡς with the subjunctive (with or without κέ) or optative is used by Homer, who does not employ the future indicative in object clauses denoting a purpose. Thus, φράζεσθαι . . . ὅππως κε μνηστῆρας . . . κτείνῃς consider how thou mayest slay the suitors α 295, πείρα_ ὅπως κεν δὴ σὴν πατρίδα γαῖαν ἵκηαι try that thou mayest come to thy native land δ 545. Here ὅπως with the future indicative would be the normal Attic usage.
