μή is used when the infinitive stands in apposition ( cross1987), and hence is like τὸ μή with the infinitive. Thus, τοῦτο ἕν ἐστιν ὧν φημι, μηδένα ἂν ἐν βραχυτέροις ἐμοῦ τὰ αὐτὰ εἰπεῖν this is one of the things I maintain—that no one can say the same things in fewer words than I can P. G. 449c. Cp. A. Pr. 173, 431, 435, P. R. 497b. Such cases are not to be confused with μή after verbs of asseveration or belief ( cross2725).
