[1] Homer, Iliad 21.366 (the river Xanthus--web address 1), though Munro and Allen read e)/qele rather than e)qe/lei. For the use of e)qe/lw in this sense, see generally LSJ s.v. A2 (web address 2: "with neg., almost = du/namai"). A scholion to Odyssey 3.121 is similar, and compares Iliad 21.366. See also Aristophanes, Birds 581 (ou)k e)qelh/sei), with scholion.
