Many relative clauses are equivalent to coördinate clauses (e.g. cross2553). In such cases the relative has the force of a demonstrative or personal pronoun with a connective (καί, ἀλλά, δέ, γάρ, οὖν, ἄρα, etc.). Thus, πῶς οὖν ἂν ἔνοχος εἴη τῇ γραφῇ; ὃς ( = οὗτος γὰρ) . . . φανερὸς ἦν θεραπεύων τοὺς θεούς how then could he be subject to the indictment? For he manifestly worshipped the gods X. M. 1.2.64. Greek often uses here the demonstrative (contrast ταῦτα δὲ εἰπών with quae cum dixisset).
