κοὐκ ἀρκέσει, not “μηδ̓”, though εἰ precedes, for “οὐκ ἀρκέσει” is felt rather as a statement of that which is sure to happen, than as a hypothesis. Similarly “οὐ” often stands in the second of two clauses after “δεινὸν εἰ” or the like: Thuc. 1. 121§ 5 “δεινὸν ἂν εἴη εἰ...οὐκ ἄρα δαπανήσομεν”: Lys. or. 10 § 13οὐκ οὖν δεινόν, εἰ...οὐκ ἀξιοῖς”.
