ὡς is often found before sentences apparently independent, where it is sometimes explained as a conjunction with the verb suppressed. Thus, ὡς τῆσδ' ἑκοῦσα παιδὸς οὐ μεθήσομαι (know) that of my own accord I will not relinquish my child E. Hec. 400, ὡς δὴ σύ μοι τύραννος Ἀργείων ἔσει (do you mean) that you forsooth shall be lord and master of Argives A. Ag. 1633. Some scholars regard this ὡς as causal, others regard it as demonstrative, others as comparative.
