Matthew 1:20, “τὸ γὰρ ἐν αὐτῇ γεννηθὲν ἐκ πνεύματός ἐστιν ἁγίου
I just noticed this text, where ἦν (which is not enclitic) separates a similar phrase in a very similar way.

Luke.2.25 Καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος ἦν ἐν Ἰερουσαλὴμ ᾧ ὄνομα Συμεών, καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος οὗτος δίκαιος καὶ εὐλαβής, προσδεχόμενος παράκλησιν τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, καὶ Πνεῦμα ἦν Ἅγιον ἐπ’ αὐτόν·

Does that damage the enclitic theory?
I've noticed, and I think I've even mentioned it on B-Greek a while ago, that ὴ͂ν seems to behave like an enclitic in terms of placement.
