I was looking at Wallace Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics, at his description of missing elements in his description of the nominative. One example he lists is a missing subject in Mark 10:13.
“Καὶ προσέφερον αὐτῷ παιδία ἵνα αὐτῶν ἅψηται· οἱ δὲ μαθηταὶ ἐπετίμησαν αὐτοῖς.”
(Μάρκον 10·13 Novum Testamentum Graece (New Testament in Greek))
I had a search for Null Subjects so I ran that and found that this verse was not found. Looking at the syntax chart I see this :

There is no Subject in the chart in the first clause. I was expecting a null subject indicating the embedded subject in the verb προσέφερον, perhaps cataphoric referring to αὐτοῖς in the following clause. There is no really obvious antecedent that I can see back to the beginning of the chapter.
Part of the reason I ask is the statement in the guide that :
Clause—The most complex type of constituent, consisting of a subject and
yet in this case there is Subject in this N clause.
Due to the prohibition on searching for an initial NOT element I am having difficulty constructing a search for more examples, if there are any.
