Are there any other instances in the LXX or Classical Greek in which EGW
EIMI, SU EI, AUTOS ESTIN or HMEIS ESMEN occur without a complement? I don't
have much chance to use TLG and besides I don't think it allows for searches
to include "without a complement."

My hunch is that AUTOS ESTIN without a complement would, in theory, be
equivalent to YHVH.
