c. τοῦ μή (cp. cross2744. 5): ἡ ἀπορία_ τοῦ μὴ ἡσυχάζειν the inability to rest T. 2.49.

d. τὸ μὴ οὐ (cp. cross2744. cross10): οὐ μέντοι ἔπειθέ γε τὸ μὴ οὐ μεγαλοπά_γμων . . . εἶναι he could not, however, persuade them that he was not a man who entertained grand designs X. H. 5.2.36, ἄλογον τὸ μὴ οὐ τέμνειν διχῇ it is irrational not to make a two-fold division P. Soph. 219e.
