Subjunctive in main clause: hortation in the second or third person
φέρ᾽, ὦ τέκνον, νῦν καὶ τὸ τῆς νήσου μάθῃς
‘’ (Soph. Phil. 300)
The subjunctive in the main clause occasionally signals a command or prohibition in the second or third person. In classical Attic this construction virtually never occurs.
