HELPS Lexicon excerpt

5259 hypó (a preposition) – properly, under, but with a different connotation when followed by the genitive ("from under") or accusative ("under at") case.  5259 (hypo) followed by the genitive case links back to the source, often with the sense "under the authority" of someone, i.e. working as a  subordinate (under someone/something else).  5259 (hypo) followed by the accusative case often relays, "under at the (dynamic) point of," especially under (with) its effects (because at that location or situation, cf. Mt 8:9; Gal 4:5).

Strong's Greek Dictionary

5259
ὑπό (hypó)
a primary preposition; under, i.e. (with the genitive case) of place (beneath), or with verbs (the agency or means, through); (with the accusative case) of place (whither (underneath) or where (below) or time (when (at))
:--among, by, from, in, of, under, with. In the comparative, it retains the same general applications, especially of inferior position or condition, and specially, covertly or moderately.
