When the antecedent is definite, the simple relatives (ὅς, οἷος, ὅσος, etc.) are used; when indefinite, the compound relatives (ὅστις, ὁποῖος, ὁπόσος, etc.) are used, but the simple relatives are often employed instead. When the antecedent is indefinite, ὅς usually has the subjunctive with ἄν or the optative; while ὅστις is preferred to ὅς if the verb is indicative ( cross2569).
