*)eqelh/sei: dunhqei/h. *(/omhros: ou)d' e)/qele prorre/ein. kai\ *)aristofa/nhs: ou)d' e)qelh/sei maqei=n. a)nti\ tou= ou) dunhqh=|.
[1] Future indicative of e)qe/lw (third person singular) glossed with the aorist optative of du/namai. See also theta 105, and n. 3 below.
[2] Homer, Iliad 21.366 (on the discomfiture of the River Xanthus, web address 1), with scholion; cf. omicron 840.
[3] Aristophanes fr. 911 Kock, a phrase that includes the headword's future indicative (glossed here with an aorist subjunctive). [The fragment's validity has been questioned, however: one suggestion is that it is a faulty version of Peace 852 (ou) ga\r e)qelh/sei fagei=n), and latterly Kassel-Austin roundly declare it to be Birds 581 (ou)k e)qelh/sei ma\ Di/'). The scholia vetera there gloss the verb with dunh/setai and append the Homeric phrase given here.]
