[*] 819. Μὴ οὐ occasionally occurs with nouns, in the same general sense as with participles, to express a negative condition to a negative statement. E.g. Αἵ τε πόλεις πολλαὶ καὶ χαλεπαὶ λαβεῖν, μὴ οὐ χρόνῳ καὶ πολιορκίᾳ, the cities were many, and difficult (=not easy, 817) to capture except by time and siege. DEM. xix. 123. Τοιαύτης δὲ τιμῆς τυχεῖν οὐχ οἷόν τε μὴ οὐ τὸν πολὺ τῇ γνώμῃ διαφέροντα, “to attain such honour is not possible except for one who is of far transcendent wisdom.” ISOC. x. 47. (If τόν is omitted, διαφέροντα as a participle belongs under 818.)
