This future has the support of the best MSS. in Xen. Anab. 7.7.3 “οὐκ ἐπιτρέψομεν ... ὡς πολεμίους ἀλεξόμεθα”: and of grammarians, Bekk. Anecd. p. 415: the aorist ἀλέξαι, ἀλέξασθαι also occurs. These forms are prob. not from the stem ἀλεξ （whence present ἀλέξω, cp. ἀέξω, ὀδάξω） but from a stem ἀλκ with unconsciously developed ε, making ἀλεκ （cp. ἄλ-αλκον）: see Curtius, Verb, 11.258, Eng. tr. 445. Homer has the fut. ἀλεξήσω, and Her. ἀλεξήσομαι. —Cp. 539.
