ἑκών, “"if thou canst help it"”: cp. Plat. Prot. 345D “ὃς ἂν ἑκὼν μηδὲν κακὸν ποιῇ”: in prose more often with “εἶναι” added, as Symp. 214 E “ἑκὼν γὰρ εἶναι οὐδὲν ψεύσομαι”: almost always in sentences which contain or imply a negative: but Her. 7.164 has “ἑκών τε εἶναι καὶ δεινοῦ ἐπιόντος οὐδενὸς...καταθεὶς τὴν ἀρχήν”.
