The verb is not common in early papyri, but cf. P Strass I. 22.22 (iii/A.D.) σιωπήσαντος τοῦ νομίζοντος αὐτῷ δτιαφέρειν καὶ ἀνασχομένου ὑπἐρ δεκαετίαν (a statute of limitations comes in), P Gen I. 76.14 (iii/iv A.D.), P Lips I. 5 ii. 8 (iii/A.D.), 55.11 (iv/A.D.), and P Oxy VI. 903.36 (iv/A.D.) κἀγὼ οὐκ ἠνεσχόμην ἐκβαλεῖν αὐτήν, ";but I refused to send her away"; (Edd.). Later examples are P Oxy I. 130.15 (vi/A.D.) οἱ διαφέροντες τοῦ ἐμοῦ δεσπότου οὐκ ἠνέσχετο (l. ἠνέσχοντο) πιοῆσαι κατὰ τὴν κέλευσιν τοῦ ἐμοῦ ἀγαθοῦ δεσπότου, ";the servants of my lord refused to do my kind lord’s bidding"; (Edd.), and P Grenf. I. 64.2 (vi/vii A.D.) οὐκ ἠνέσχετο τοῦτο ποιῆσαι. There is a note on the syntax of the verb in W. Schmidt Jos., p. 424 f., and one on the complexities of its augment in Crönert Mem. Here., p. 207.
It may be noted that Nestle (ExpT xix. p. 284) has drawn attention to the interesting reading ἀνέξεται (for ἀνθέξται) in Matthew 6:24 = Luke 16:13, as supported by the OLat (sustinebit or patietur) and OSyr (";endure,"; Burkitt) : it was familiar from the common Stoic formula ἀνέχου καὶ ἀπέχου. ";Put up with the one, and take advantage of the other"; (see s.v. καταφρονέω) will be the meaning.
