Att. also ὡδί (q. v.), demonstr. Adv. of ὅδε:
I of Manner, in this wise, thus, sts. so very, so exceedingly, freq. from Hom. downwards: in Hom. usu. before the Verb, but after it in Il. 1.181, 574, 10.91, 18.392; Pl. and X. mostly place it after the Verb: — in construction ὧδε is answered by ὡς, so.., as.., Il. 3.300, Od. 19.312: answering ὥς περ, Il. 6.478, cf. S. OT 276, etc.: folld. by a relat., τίς ὧδε τλησικάρδιος, ὅτῳ..; A. Pr. 160 (lyr.); by εἰ, δοκῶ μοι ὧδε ἂν μᾶλλον πιθέσθαι σοι, εἴ μοι δείξειας.. Pl. Cra. 391a; εἰ φρονῶν ἔπρασσον, οὐδ' ἂν ὧδ' ἐγιγνόμην κακός S. OC 272: c. part., δύαις τε καμφθεὶς ὧδε δεσμὰ φυγγάνω A. Pr. 513: ὧδέπως is freq. in Att., Pl. R. 393d, X. Mem. 2.1.21, etc.; also in later Prose, Luc. Herm. 32, etc.
2. of a State or Condition, as it is, πρόμολ' ὧ. come forth just as thou art, Il. 18.392, cf. Od. 1.182, 2.28 (rightly so taken by Aristarch. ap. Sch.A Il. 2.271, cf. Sch.A Il. 18.392: v. infr. 11); στρεύγεσθαι ὧδ' ἄτως Il. 15.513, cf. 10.91.
3. of something following, thus, as follows, esp. to introduce quoted words, Il. 1.181 (where it follows the verb), Od. 2.111, Hes. Op. 203, etc.; ὧδ' ἠμείψατο S. Ph. 378: sts. referring to what goes before, Hdt. 5.2.

II of Place, hither, cf. ὅδε 1: Aristarch. denied this usage in Hom. altogether (cf. Sch.A Il. 2.271, Apollon. Lex. s.v. ὧδε, A.D. Adv. 178.25, Eust. 792.2, al.); and most of the passages taken in this sense may be referred to signf. 1.1 or 2, just as you see, v. supr. 1.2: but hither seems prob. in Od. 17.544, Il. 12.346, 10.537: examples of ὧδε, hither, are found in Trag. (esp. in S., as OT 7, 144, 298, OC 182 (lyr.), 841 (lyr.), 1206, 1547, Tr. 402); also in Com., as ἴτω τις ὧ. Ar. Av. 229 (lyr.); and later, as Herod. 1.49; χιλίας ὧ. καὶ χιλίας ὧδ' ἐμβαλεῖν Id. 5.48; ὧ. χὦδε χασκεύσῃ Id. 4.42; ὧδε καὶ ὧδε this way and that, AP 5.128 (Autom.): προσάγαγε ὧ. τὸν υἱόν σου Luke 9:41.
