The aim of this work is to fnrnish in concise form the essential 
material for an introductory study of the Greek dialects. Hitherto 
there has been no single volume intended to fulfill the requirements 
of college and graduate students who wish to gain a first-hand 
knowledge of Greek dialects, whether for a better understanding of 
historical Greek grammar, or for a greater appreciation of the vari- 
ety of speech in the Greek world, only half suspected from the few 
dialects employed in literature, or as a substantial foundation for a 
critical study of these literary dialects, or merely for the ability to 
handle intelligently the numerous dialect inscriptions which are 
important in the investigation of Greek institutions. 

It is now more than ten years since the author formed the plan 
of publishing a brief collection of Greek dialect inscriptions with 
explanatory notes for the use of students, and made a selection for 
this purpose. At that time Cauer's Delectus inscriptionum Graeca^ 
rum (2d ed. 1883), which proved useful for many years, had already 
ceased to be a representative collection of dialect inscriptions. In 
the case of several dialects the material there given was quite over- 
shadowed in importance by the discoveries of recent years. In the 
meantime this situation has been relieved by the publication of 
Solmsen's Inscriptiones Graecae ad inlustrandas dialectos selectae. 
But another need, which it was equally a part of the plan to supply, 
namely of more explanatory matter for the assistance of beginners 
in the subject, has remained unfilled up to the present time, though 
here again in the meantime a book has been announced as in prep- 
aration (Thumb's Handbuch der griechischen Dialekte) which pre- 
sumably aims to serve the same purpose as the present one. 

With regard to the explanatory matter, the first plan was to ac- 
company the inscriptions not only by exegetical, but also by rather 
full grammatical notes, with references to the grammars where the 


peculiarity in question -was treated as a whole. But tlie desire to 
include all that was most essential to the student in this single vol- 
ume led to the expansion of the introduction into a concise " Gram- 
mar of the Dialects," and the author has come to believe that this 
may prove to be the most useful part of the work. Without it the 
student would be forced at every turn to consult either the larger 
Greek Grammars, where, naturally, the dialectic peculiarities are 
not sifted out from the discussion of the usual literary forms, or 
else the various grammars of special dialects. For, since Ahrens, 
the works devoted to the Greek dialects, aside from discussions of 
special topics, have consisted in separate grammars of a single dia- 
lect or, at the most, of a single group of dialects. Some of the ad- 
vantages which this latter method undoubtedly possesses we have 
aimed to preserve by means of the Summaries (pp. 129-153). 

Highly important as are the dialects for the comparative study 
of the Greek language, this Grammar is distinctly not intended as 
a manual of comparative Greek grammar. It restricts itself to the 
discussion of matters in which dialectic differences are to be ob- 
served, and the comparisons are almost wholly within Greek itself. 
Furthermore, the desired brevity could be secured only by elimi- 
nating almost wholly any detailed discussion of disputed points and 
citation of the views of others, whether in agreement or in oppo- 
sition to those adopted in the text. Some notes and references 
are added in the Appendix, but even these are kept within narrow 
limits. Several of these references are to articles which have ap- 
peared since the printing of the Grammar, which began in Septem- 
ber 1908, was completed. 

Especial pains have been taken to define as precisely as possible 
the dialectic distribution of the several peculiarities, and it is be- 
lieved that, though briefly stated and without exhaustive lists of 
examples, fuller information of this kind has been brought together 
than is to be found in any other general work. Biit, as the most com- 
petent critics will also be the first to admit, no one can be safe from 
the danger of having overlooked some stray occurrence of a given 
peculiarity in the vast and still much scattered material; and, further- 
more, such statements of distribution are subject to the need of contin- 
ual revision in the light of the constantly appearing new material. 


The reasons for not attempting in the Grammar a fuller account 
of the peculiarities exhibited by our literary texts in dialect are set 
forth on p. 14. 

The Selected Inscriptions show such a noticeable degree of coin- 
cidence with the selection made by Solmsen, in the work cited above, 
that it is perhaps well to state expressly that this is not the result 
of having simply adopted a large part of his selections with some 
additions, as it might appear, but of an independent selection, made 
some years before the appearance of his work, and, except for some 
necessary reduction, adhered to with probably not over half a dozen 
substitutions. Eor a brief collection the choice of the most repre- 
sentative inscriptions from a time when the dialects are comparar 
tively unmixed is fairly clear. The later inscriptions with their 
various types of dialect mixture are of great interest, and some 
few examples of these have been included. But to represent this 
phase adequately is possible only in a much more comprehensive 

The transcription employed is also identical with that used by 
Solmsen in his second edition, but this again is the result of long- 
settled conviction that this system, as used for example by Baunack 
in his Inschriften von Gortyn (1885) and his edition of the Delphian 
inscriptions (1891), is the one best adapted for a work of this kind. 

The brevity of the notes is justified by the assistance given in 
other parts of the book. If, before beginning the inscriptions of a 
given dialect, the student familiarizes himself with its main charac- 
teristics by the help of the Summaries (180-273), he will not feel 
the need of a comment or reference for a form that, from the point 
of view of the dialect in question, has nothing abnormal about it. 
Furthermore, the Glossary makes it unnecessary to comment on 
many individual words. Detailed discussion of the problems of 
chronology, constitutional antiquities, etc. which are involved in 
many of the inscriptions is not called for in a work the principal 
aim of which is linguistic. 

It is sometimes advisable for a student to depart from the order 
in which the inscriptions are given, and to begin his study of a dia- 
lect with one of the later inscriptions, e.g. in Arcadian to read first 
no. 18, leaving until later the more difficult nos. 16, 17. 


The Glossary and Index, besides serving as an index to the Gram- 
mar, is intended to include all words occurring in the Selected In- 
scriptions which are not to be found in Liddell and Scott, or exhibit 
unusual meanings. 

Some time after this book was first planned, I learned that the 
editors of the College Series had already arranged for a volume 
dealing with the monuments, inscriptional and literary, which rep- 
resent the different dialects of Greece, by Professor H. W. Smyth. 
But, finding that Professor Smyth, because of other interests, was 
quite willing to relinquish the task, the editors invited me to con- 
tribute my contemplated work to the Series. The late Professor 
Seymour, under whom more than twenty years ago I had read my 
first dialect inscriptions, gave me valuable counsel on the general 
plan, and before his lamented death read over a large part of my 
manuscript. I am also under obligation to Professor Gulick for the 
great care with which he has read the proofs and for important sug- 
gestions. ■ The proofreading in the office of the publishers has been 
so notably accurate and scholarly that I cannot omit to express my 

appreciation of it. m r. r,

Classification and Inteeeelation of the Dialects ^ 

1. When the ancient grammarians spoke of the four dialects of 
Greece — Attic, Ionic, Aeolic, and Doric, to which some added the 
Koiv^ as a fifth — they had in mind solely the Literary dialects, wliich 
furnished the occasion and object of their study. But these hterary 
dialects represent only a few of the many forms of speech current 
in Greece, most of which play no part whatever in literature, and, 
apart from some scattered glosses, would be entirely miknown to 
us were it not for the wealth of inscriptions which the soil of 
Greece has yielded in modern times. 

The existence of Ionic, Aeolic, and Doric elements in the people 
and speech of Greece is an undoubted fact of Greek history, and 
one of first importance to an understanding of the dialect rela- 
tions. But there is no warrant, either ia the earUer Greek tradition 
or in the linguistic evidence, for making this an aU-inclusive classi- 
fication. These three elements were precipitated, as it were, on the 
coast of Asia ilinor, where their juxtaposition gave rise to the his- 
torical recognition of the distinction. And as the lonians, Aeolians, 
and Dorians of Asia Minor were colonists from Greece proper, it 
was a natural and proper inference of the historians that they re- 
flected ethnic divisions which also existed, or had once existed, in

at the end of the book. 



the mother country.^ As to who were the Dorians of Greece proper 
there was of course no mystery. They formed a well-defined group 
throughout the historical period, and the tradition that they came 
originally from the Northwest is completely home out by the close 
relationship of the Doric and Northwest Greek dialects (see below). 
That the lonians were akin to the inhabitants of Attica was an 
accepted fact in Greek history, and the Athenians are called Ionic 
both in Herodotus (e.g. 1.56) and Thucydides (6.82, 7.57). The 
linguistic evidence is equally unmistakable. The only uncertainty 
here is as to the extent of territory which was once Ionic. There 
are various accounts according to which lonians once occupied the 
southern shore of the Corinthian gulf, the later Achaea (e.g. Hdt. 
1.145-146, 7.94), Megara (e.g. Strabo 9.392), Epidaurus (e.g. Pans, 
2.26.2), and Cynuria (Hdt. 8.73). If these accounts in themselves 
are of questionable value, yet we cannot doubt that the lonians 
before the migration were not confined to Attica. The close rela- 
tions of Epidaurus and Troezen with Athens, in cult and legend, are 
significant for the Argolic Acte, and it is reasonable to assume that 
at least the entire shore of the Saronic gulf was once lonic.^ 

The affinities of the Aeolians were more obscure, for theirs was 
the earliest migration to Asia Minor, the most remote from the 
historical period. But Thessaly was the scene of their favorite 
legends, the home of Achilles, as also of their eponymous hero 
Aeolus, and many of their place-names had their counterpart in 
Thessaly. In Herodotus we find the tradition that the Thessalians 
of the historical period were invaders from the west who occupied 

1 It is equally natural, and quite iustiflable as a matter of convenience, to 
apply the same names to these earlier divisions. That the name Ionian, for ex- 
ample, did not gain its current application on the mainland, but in the east, is 
of no consequence. Such generic terms are everywhere of gradual growth. 

2 That is, in a period contemporaneous with the Aeolic and Achaean occupa- 
tion of other parts of Greece (see below). Of a still remoter period the view has 
been advanced that the lonians formed the first wave of Greek migration, were 
in fact the much-discussed Pelasgians, and for a time occupied also the territory 
which with the next wave of migration became Aeolic or Achaean. This is, 
naturally, much more problematical. 


what had hitherto been an AeoUc land,i and with this the hnguistic 
evidence is in perfect accord. For Thessalian is of all dialects the 
most closely related to Lesbian, and at the same time shai-es in some 
of the characteristics of the West Greek dialects, this admixture 
of West Greek elements being somewhat stronger in Thessaliotis 
than in Pelasgiotis. See 201, 202, 210, and Chart I. The Boeo- 
tians also are called Aeolians by Thucydides,'' and the Boeotian 
dialect is, next to Thessalian, the most closely related to Lesbian. 
These thr-ee have several notable characteristics in common (see 
201 and Chart I), and are known as the Aeohc dialects. But in 
Boeotian there is an even stronger admixture of West Greek ele- 
ments than in Thessalian (see 217 and Chart I), the historical 
explanation of which must be the same. If we credit the state- 
ment of Thucydides that the Boeotian invaders were from Arne, 
whence they had been driven by the Thessalians,^ we should recog- 
nize in these Boeotians, not a part of the old AeoKc population of 
Thessaly, but a tribe of West Greek invaders from Epirus (cf. Mt. 
Boeon), like the Thessalians who forced them onward. The Aeolic 
element is to be ascribed rather to the tribes, or some of them, 
comprising the early stratum, as for example the Minyans of 
Orchomenos. However obscure such details may be, the evidence 
is perfectly clear that both Boeotia and Thessaly were once Aeolic, 
but were overrun by West Greek tribes which adopted the speech 
of the earlier inhabitants in greater or less degree. 

It is a natural presumption, of which there ai-e some specific 
indications, that not only Thessaly and Boeotia but the interme- 
diate lands of Phocis and Locris, and even southern Aetolia — in fact

all that portion of Greece north of Attica which plays a r61e in the 
legends of early Greece — was once Aeolic. Phocaea in Asia Minor, 
which, though later Ionic, surely belonged originally to the strip 
of Aeolic colonies, was believed to be a colony of Phocis, and in the 
dialect of Phocis there are actually some relics of Aeolic speech, as 
the dative plural of consonant stems in -ecrai (107.3), which is also 
found in eastern Locris. As for southern AetoHa, the region of 
Calydon and Pleuron was once called Aeolis aecordmg to Thucyd- 
ides,i and the probability is that the Aetolians of the Homeric period 
were Aeolic, though their name was taken by the later. West Greek, 
invaders. The Aetolian occupation of Elis was an accepted tradi- 
tion, and the existence of an Aeolic element in the dialect of Elis, 
like the dative plural in -ecrai, may be brought into connection with 
this if we assume that while the invaders were Aetolians in the 
later sense, that is West Greek, as Elean is distinctly a West Greek 
dialect, they had nevertheless adopted certaiu characteristics of the 
earlier Aeolic Aetolian and brought them to Elis. Corinth was 
also once occupied by Aeolians according to Thucydides,^ and it is 
a noteworthy fact that the dative plural in -ecro-t, which is unknown 
in other Doric dialects, is found in various Corinthian colonies (107.3). 
But we have passed beyond the limits within which the term 
Aeolic, or in general the division into Ionic, Doric, and Aeolic, can 
with any propriety be applied to the peoples and dialects of the 
historical period. It is only in Strabo that these three groups are 
made into an all-inclusive system of classification, by means of an 
unwarranted extension of Aeolic to include everything that is not 
Ionic or Doric. And yet it is, unfortunately, this statement of 
Strabo's,^ the error of which has long since been recognized, that

has often been taken as representative of ancient tradition and 
still colors, in the literal sense, our maps of ancient Greece. The 
historical Phocians, Locrians, Aetohans, etc., were not, as Strabo's 
statement implies, called Aeolic. Neither in Herodotus, Thucydi- 
des, nor any early writer, are they ever brought under any one of 
the three groups. Their dialects, with that of Elis, which Strabo 
also calls Aeolic, all of which may be conveniently designated the 
Northwest Greek dialects, are, in spite of some few traces of AeoHc 
as mentioned above, most closely related to the Doric dialects. 
There is scarcely one of the general characteristics common to the 
Doric dialects in which they do not share, though they also have 
certain peculiarities of their own. See 223 with a, 226, and Chart I. 
If we were to classify them under any one of the three groups, it 
is unquestionably Doric to which they have the best claim, and if 
Strabo and our maps so classed them there would be no very seri- 
ous objection. Indeed modem scholars do often class them under 
" Doiic in the wider sense," calling them then specifically " North 
Doric." But on the whole it seems preferable to retain the term 
Doric in its historical application and employ West Greek as the 
comprehensive term to include the Northwest Greek dialects and 
the Doric proper. 

In fact the most fimdamental division of the Greek dialects is 
that into these West Greek and the East Greek dialects, the terms 
referring to their location prior to the great migrations. The East 
Greek Eire the " Old Hellenic " dialects, that is those employed by 
the peoples who held the stage almost exclusively in the period 
represented by the Homeric poems, when the West Greek peoples 
remained in obscurity in the northwest. To the East Greek division 
belong the Ionic and Aeolic groups, though, of the latter, Thessalian 
and Boeotian, as explained above, are mixed dialects belonging in

part also in the West Greek division. And to East Greek belongs 
also another group, the Arcado-Cyprian. 

No two dialects, not even Attic and Ionic, belong together more 
obviously than do those of Arcadia and the distant Cyprus. They 
share in a number of notable peculiarities which are unknown else- 
where. See 189 and Chart I. This is to be accounted for by the 
fact that Cyprus was colonized, not necessarily or probably from 
Arcadia itself, as tradition states, but from the Peloponnesian coast, 
at a time when its speech was like that which in Arcadia survived 
the Doric migration. This group represents, beyond question, the 
pre-Doric speech of most of the Peloponnesus, whatever we choose 
to call it. The term Achaean is used in so many different senses ^ 
that it might be well to avoid it entirely. But it is convenient to 
apply it to this group, which actually has the best claim to it, 
whenever the need is felt of some other term than Arcado-Cyprian, 
which, whUe describing accurately what is left of the group in 
the historical period, is strikingly infelicitous when applied to 
prehistoric times. The relations of this group to the others of the 
East Greek division, especially Aeolic, are the most difficult to 
interpret historically. Strabo, of course, calls the Arcadians Aeolic, 
but without warrant in earlier usage. For example, Thucydides, 
in describing the forces engaged at Syracuse (7.57), makes the 
most of the distinction between Ionic, Doric, and Aeolic nations, 
but does not class the Arcadians with any one of these. Yet the 
Arcadian and Cyprian dialects show notable resemblances to the 
Aeolic dialects which cannot be afecidental (see 190.3-6 and Chart I), 
and some would class them all together under the head of " Aeolic 
in the widest sense" or "Achaean" (Aeolic in the usual sense 
then appearing as " North Achaean "). On the other hand, many 
of the characteristics common to the Aeolic dialects are lacking, 

1 ' ' Achaean ' ' is applied by some to a supposed stratum intermediate between 
that which survived in Arcado-Cyprian and the later Doric. But there is no 
good evidence, either linguistic or otherwise, that any such intermediate stratum 
ever existed. 


and there are certain points of agreement with Attic-Ionic (see 
190.1, 193.2,3, and Chart I). One may surmise that the latter, 
which are in part confined to Arcadian, are due to contact with 
lonians on the coast of the Peloponnesus (see above, p. 2), and 
that the connections with Aeolic are earlier and more fundamental, 
reflecting a period of geographical continuity with Aeohc peoples 
somewhere in Northern Greece. But that brings us before the " mys- 
tery of the Achaean- name," that most difficult problem of the 
relation between the Achaeans of the Phthiotis and the pre-Doric 
Achaeans of the Peloponnesus, and of those again to the historical 
Achaeans on the Corinthian Gidf, whose dialect is West Greek. 
Conservative procedure here consists in recognizing Arcado-Cyprian, 
or Achaean, as a distinct group intermediate between Aeolic and 
Attic-Ionic, and conceding that the precise historical background of 
their interrelations is hopelessly obscure. Arcadian shows some few 
West Greek peculiarities which we may properly attribute to the 
influence of the surrounding Doric dialects in the historical period. 
Just as in the Northwest Greek dialects some traces of the 
former Aeolic speech have survived, as noted above, so it is not 
surprising to find some traces of Achaean speech in the Doric 
dialects spoken in lands formerly Achaean. For example, in 
Laconia Poseidon was worshiped under the name of IlohoiSdv, 
which recalls Arc. HoaoiSdv, the true Doric form being Hotoi- 
Sdv (49.1, 61.5). Here possibly belongs Iv = iv in some Cretan in- 
scriptions (10). Besides survivals which bear specifically either the 
Aeolic or the Achaean stamp, there are others of forms which are 
common to both, and so from the linguistic poiat of view might 
be called Aeolic-Achaean, only their provenance leading us to 
infer either Aeolic or Achaean source (e.g. probably Achaean, 
Te\etr<f>opevT€<; 157, TreSa 137.5, ypo<f)ev<} etc. 5, 6) ; or again others 
which might be called simply East Greek without further differ- 
entiation. But, apart from some few striking examples, the ques- 
tion of survival versus accidental agreement or historical borrowing 
is a very delicate one. 


The classification of the dialects is then, in outliae, as follows : ^ 
West Greek Division East Greek Division 

1. Northwest Greek: Phocian, 1. Attic-Ionic. 

Locrian, Elean, etc. 2. Aeolic : Lesbian, Thessalian, 

2. Doric : Laconian, Corinthian, Boeotian. 

Argolic, Cretan, etc. 3. Arcado-Cyprian or Achaean. 

2. The Greek dialects, classified in accordance with the preceding 
scheme, and with their important subdivisions noted, are the fol- 
lowing. For summaries of the characteristics of each, see 180-273. 


I. The Attic-Ionic Group 

1. Attic. 

2. Ionic. 

A. East Ionic, or Ionic of Asia Minor. The Ionic cities of the 
coast of Asia Minor and the adjacent islands, Samos, Chios, etc., 
together with their colonies, mostly on the Hellespont, Propontis, 
and Euxine. There are some local varieties, of which the most 
marked is Chian, containing some Lesbian features. 

B. Central Ionic, or Ionic of the Cyclades. The Ionic Cyclades, 
Naxos, Amorgos, Paros with its colony Thasos, Delos, Tenos, An- 
dres, Ceos, etc. 

C. "West Ionic, or Euboean. Chalcis (with its colonies in Italy, 
Sicily, and the Chalcidian peninsula) and the other cities of Eu- 
boea. A local dialect with marked characteristics is the Eretrian, 
seen ia the inscriptions of Eretria and Oropus. 

1 Pamphylian, of which the meager remains permit only a very imperfect 
knowledge, and which is therefore, barring occasional references, ignored in this 
book, shows notable affinities on the one hand with Arcado-Cyprian (u = o, i^ 
with dat., etc.), on the other with West Greek (<l>lKa.Ti, lap6s, Sko, etc.). As 
Thessalian and Boeotian represent a mixture of Aeolic and West Greek, so 
Pamphylian of Achaean and West Greek. Quite probably the earliest colonists 
were Achaeans from the Peloponnesus, later followed by Dorians. 


II. The Akcado-Cypeian oe Achaean Geoup 

1. Arcadian. The most important material 'is from Tegea and 

2. Cyprian. There are numerous short inscriptions, and one of 
considerable length, the bronze of IdaJium. All are iu the Cyprian 

III. The Aeolic Geoup 

1. Lesbian, or Asiatic Aeohc.^ The inscriptional material is fairly 
extensive, but late. There is nothiug approaching the time of the 
poems of Alcaeus and Sappho, and very little that is older than the 
Macedonian period. Most of the inscriptions are from the chief 
cities of Lesbos, but a few are from other islands and to-wns of 
the Aeolic mainland. 

2. Thessalian.^ Two subdivisions with marked differences are 
formed by the dialect of Pelasgiotis and that of Thessaliotis, which 
may be conveniently, if not quite appropriately, designated as East 
and West Thessalian. 

From Phthiotis there is an early Thessalian inscription, but most 
of the material is from the period of Aetohan domination and in 
the Northwest Greek Koivri. See 279. From Histiaeotis, Perrhaebia, 
and Magnesia the material is very scanty. 

3. Boeotian.^ The material is very extensive, and representative 
of all the important Boeotian towns, but is meager for the early 


IV. The Noethwest Gkeek Group 

1. Phocian. A large part of the material,including nearly all that is 
of an early date, is from Delphi, and is quoted specifically as Delphian. 

1 Sometimes called simply Aeolic. But, to avoid confusion with Aeolic in its 
wider sense, the designation Lesbian is to be preferred in spite of the formal 
impropriety of applying it to a dialect not restricted to Lesbos. Most of the 
material is actually from Lesbos. 

2 That Thessalian and Boeotian are only in part Aeolic, in part West Greek, 
has been explained above, pp. 2, 3. 


2. Locrian. The early and important inscriptions are from west- 
ern Locris. From eastern Locris the material is meager and late. 

3. Elean. All the material, much of which is very early, is from 

4. The Northwest Greek Koivri. Employed in Aetolia and other 
regions rmder the domination of the Aetolian league. See 279. 

Note. Only Phocian, Locrian, and Elean are known to us as distinct 
dialects of this group. Of others which presumably belong here we have 
practically no material from a time when they retained their individuality. 
In Aetolia, for example, before the rise of the Northwest Greek Koivq there 
was undoubtedly a distinct Northwest Greek dialect, probably most nearly 
related to Locrian, but of this pure Aetolian we have no knowledge. Of the 
speech of Aeniania and Malis previous to the Aetolian domination we have 
no remains. It is natural to suppose that Northwest Greek dialects were 
once spoken also in Acarnania and Epirus. But here the influence of the 
Corinthian colonies was strong from an early period, as shown by the use 
of the Corinthian alphabet in the few early inscriptions ; and in later times, 
from which nearly all the material dates, the language employed is not the 
Northwest Greek Kowq, but the Doric koivtq, like that of the contempora- 
neous insci-iptions of Corcyra. -See 279. Hence the actual material from 
Acarnania and Epirus is more properly classified with Corinthian. From 
Cephallenia and Ithaca we have decrees in the Northwest Greek kolvti from 
the Aetolian period (see 279), but from earlier times not enough to show 
whether the dialect was Northwest Greek or Doric. From Zacynthus there 
is almost nothing. The dialect of Achaea (i. e. Peloponnesian Achaea in 
the historical period) is generally believed to belong to this group. This 
is probable on general grounds, but there is as yet no adequate linguistic 
evidence of it. For, apart from the inscriptions of Achaean colonies in 
Magna Graecia, which, both on account of their meagemess and the mixed 
elements in the colonization, are indecisive, nearly all the material is from 
the time of the Achaean league, and this is not in the Northwest Greek 
Koarfj, but in the same Doric Kotvij that was used in Corinth and Sicyon. 

V. The Doric Group 

1. Laconian and Heracleata. Laconia and its colonies Tarentum and 
Heraclea. Heraclean, well known from the Heraclean Tables, has 
peculiarities of its own, and is treated as a distinct dialect. 


2. Messenian. There is scarcely any material until a late period, 
when the dialect is no longer pure. 

3. Megarian. Megara, and its colonies in Sicily (especially Selinus) 
and on the Propontis and Bosporus (as Byzantium, Chalcedon, etc.). 
Except from Selinus the material is late. 

4. CorintMan. Corinth, Sicyon, Cleonae, Phlius, and the Corin- 
thian colonies Corcyra (with its own colonies ApoEonia and Dyrrha- 
chium), Leucas, Anactorium, Ambracia, etc., and, in Sicily, Syracuse 
with its own colonies. Material from places other than Corinth, 
though coming under the general head of Corinthian, is generally 
quoted specifically as Sicyonian, Corcyraean, Syracusan, etc. 

5. Argolic. Argos, Mycenae, etc., and the cities of the Acte, as 
Hermione, Troezen, and Epidaurus together with Aegina.^ Argolic 
(abbreviated Argol.) is used as the general term, while Argive (Arg.) 
refers more specifically to the material from Argos (with the Argive 
Heraeum), as Epidaurian to that from Epidaurus. 

6. Rhodian. Ehodes (Camirus, lalysus, Lindus, and the city of 
Eliodes) with the adjacent small islands (Chalce, etc.) and Carpathus, 
Telos, and Syme, the settlements on the mainland (the Ehodian 
Peraea) and Phaselis in Pamphylia, and the Sicilian colonies Gela 
and Agrigentum (an inscription of Ehegium, though not a Ehodian 
colony, is in the same dialect). The material is very extensive, but 
little of it is early. 

7. Coan and Calymnian. The material is considerable, but not early. 

8. The dialects of Cnidus, and of Nisyrus, Anaphe, Astypalaea, 
and other small islands. The material is late, and insufficient to 
determine whether any of these should properly be grouped with 
Ehodian, Coan, or Theran. Nisyrus, for example, was nearly always 
connected politically with either Cos or Ehodes. 

9. Theran and Melian. Thera with Cyrene, and Melos. Early in- 
scriptions are numerous, but brief. 

1 From Aegina there is not much material from the period before the Athe- 
nian occupation, but enough to show that the dialect was Argolic (note tapios 
with lenis, 58 &). 


10. Cretan. This is now the best-known of all the Doric dialects, 
owing to the very extensive early material, especially from Gortyna. 
The dialect of Gortyna and other cities of the great central portion 
of the island is also known more specifically as Central Cretan, to 
exclude the divergent type seen in the iascriptions, mostly late, 
from the eastern and western extremities of the island. See 273. 
But the term Cretan alone is to be understood as referring to this 
Central Cretan, unless otherwise stated. 

The Dialects in Liteeatuee 

3. Of the numerous dialects of Greece a few attained the rank 
of literary dialects, though for the most part in a mixed and arti- 
ficial form not corresponding to anything actually spoken at a 
given time and place. Moreover, in the course of literary develop- 
ment these dialects came to be characteristic of certain classes of 
hterature, and, their r61e once established, the choice of one or the 
other usually depended upon this factor rather than upon the native 
dialect of the author. 

The literary development of epic songs began with the Aeolians 
of Asia Minor, whence it passed into the hands of the neighboring 
lonians, and the language of Homer, which became the norm of 
aU epic poetry and strongly affected subsequent poetry of all classes, 
is a mixture of Aeolic and Ionic, — in the main Old Ionic but with 
the retention of many Aeolic forms, such as dfifie<; beside ■^fiel's, 
genitive singular in -do beside -eco, etc. The language of Hesiod is 
substantially the same, but with some Aeolic forms not used in 
Homer, also some Boeotian and Doric peculiarities. The elegiac 
and iambic poets also use the epic dialect with some modifications, 
not only lonians like Archilochus, but the Athenian Solon, the 
Spartan Tyrtaeus, the Megarian Theognis, etc. 

Of the melic poets, Alcaeus and Sappho followed very closely 
their native Lesbian dialect, though not entirely unaffected by epic 
influence. The language of these and other Lesbian poets was 


directly imitated by some later writers, notably by Theocritus in 
three of his idyls, and contributed an important element to the 
language of many more, e.g. Anacreon of Teos, who in the main 
employed his native Ionic (New Ionic), and, in general, to the 
choral lyric, which Xv^as mainly Doric. 

The choral lyric was developed among Doric peoples, though 
under the impulse of Lesbian poets, who we know were welcomed 
in Sparta, for example, in the seventh century. Its language is 
Doric, vnth an admixture of Lesbian and epic forms, no matter 
whether the poet is a Dorian, or a Boeotian like Pindar, or an 
Ionian like Simonides and Bacchyhdes. This Doric, however, is not 
identical with any specific Doric dialect, but is an artificial com- 
posite, showing many of the general Doric characteristics, but with 
the elimination of local peculiarities. An exception is to be made 
in the case of Alcman, whose Doric is of a severer type and evi- 
dently based upon the Laconian, though also mixed with Lesbian 
and epic forms. 

The earliest prose writers were the Ionic philosophers and Ms- 
torians of the sixth century, and in the fifth century not only 
Herodotus, but Hippocrates of Cos, a Dorian, wrote in Ionic. In 
the meantime, with the political and intellectual supremacy of 
Athens, Attic had become the recognized language of the drama, 
and before the end of the fifth century was employed in prose also, 
though the earlier prose writers as Thucydides, like the tragedians, 
• avoided certain Attic peculiarities which were stUl felt as provin- 
cialisms (e.g. TT = crcr, pp = per). Henceforth Attic was the lan- 
guage of literary prose. 

The dialects mentioned are the only literary dialects known and 
cultivated throughout the Greek world. But some few others were 
employed locally. Epicharmus and Sophron wrote in their native 
Syracusan Doric, as did, later, Archimedes. A form of Doric prose 
was developed among the Pythagoreans of Magna Graecia, seen in 
some fragments of Archytas of Tarentum, Philolaus of Croton, and 
others, though the greater part of the writings of this class are 


spurious. The comic poet Ehiuthon, from whom the grammarians 
sometimes quote, used the Doric of Tarentum. The fragments of 
Corinna of Tanagra, whose fame was scarcely more than local, are 
in Boeotian, and the Boeotian dialect, as well as Megarian and 
Laconian, are caricatured by Aristophanes. But the great majority 
of the dialects play no role whatever in literature. 

Even for those dialects which are represented, the literary re- 
maias must for the most part be regarded as secondary sources, 
not only because of their artificial character but also because of 
the corruptions which they have suffered in transmission. Excep- 
tional importance, however, attaches . to the language of Homer 
because of its antiquity, and to the Lesbian of Alcaeus and Sappho 
because it is relatively pure and much older than the inscriptional 

Note. In the following exposition, dialectic forms from literary and 
grammatical sources are not infrequently quoted, especially where the 
inscriptional evidence is slight, as it is, for example,' quite naturally, for 
the personal pronouns. Such forms are sometimes quoted with their spe- 
cific sources, sometimes simply as literary Doric (lit. Dor.), literary Lesbian 
(lit. Lesb.), literary Ionic (lit. Ion.), or grammatical (gram.). But a de- 
tailed treatment of the dialectic peculiarities observed in our literary texts 
is so bound up with questions of literary tradition and textual criticism 
that it is best left to the critical editions of the various authors. It would 
be impracticable in a work of the present scope, and would, moreover, tend 
to obscure that more trustworthy picture of the dialects which is gained 
from inscriptions, and which is so important as a basis for the critical study 
of the mixed literary forms. 


The Alphabet 

4. The numerous diEFerences in the local alphabets, so far as 
they consist merely in variations of the forms of the letters, need 
not be discussed here, important as the}- are to the epigraphist in 
deciding the age and source of inscriptions. But certain points in 
the use of the alphabet and its development as a means of express- 
ing the Greek sounds should be noted. 

1. In the most primitive type of the Greek alphabet, as it is 
seen in the earliest inscriptions of Crete, Thera, and Melos, the 
non-Phoenician signs <|), X, Y have not yet been introduced, and the 
I is not in use. The sounds of <fi, y^ are represented by ttA, k/i 
(or fh), or, as in Crete, where B (H) when used is tj not A, are not 
distinguished fi-om tt, k ; those of yjr, f , by ttct, Ktr. 

2. In the next stage of development, after the introduction of 
<l>, X, Y, the alphabets fall into two classes, according to the values 
attached to these signs. The eastern division, to which Ionic 
belongs, employs them as <|), %, '^, and also uses the i as ^, though 
a subdivision of this group, represented mainly by the Attic aljdia- 
bet, uses only the first two and expresses fjr, f by <f>(r, x'^- The 
western di^ision,^ to which belong the majority of the alphabets 
of Greece proper as weU as that of Euboea, whence it was carried 
to Italy by the Chalcidian colonies and became the source of the 
Latin alphabet, employs <l>, X, Y as ^, f, x. not using I at all, and 

1 This distinction of eastern and western alphabets, the distribution of wliich 
is clearly shown in the Chart in Kirchhoff s Sludien zur GeschictUe des griechi- 
schen Alphabets, has no connection with that of East and West Greek dialects, 
and is anything but coincident with it. 



generally expressing yjr by ttct or, oftener, ^a (only in Locrian and 
Arcadian by a special sign *). 

3. In the earliest inscriptions nearly all the alphabets have the 
f (van or digamma); and many the 9 (koppa), which is used before 
or V, and that too even if a liquid intervenes, e.g. ioptvdodev, 
h6ppo<!, Aop/30?, ippore, IlaT/aopXo?, XepvOof, 2\vtos (in other posi- 
tions it is very rare). 

4. Two signs were available for o-, namely ^ or 5 (sigma) and 
M (san), and most alphabets use one of these to the exclusion of 
the other. But there are some few examples of a differentiation. 
In an early Arcadian inscription of Mantinea (no. 16), the charac- 
ter \A, a simplified form of the san, which is known from other 
sources, is used to denote a sibilant of specifically Arcado-Cyprian 
origin, as in v^t? (transcribed a;i<;) = Cypr. o-ts, Att. tk. See 68.3. 
A sign T, which is also probably a modification of the san, is used 
in some Ionic inscriptions of Asia Minor for the usual acr = Att. tt, 
e.g. from Hahcarnassus ' KXiicapvwve{(o)v beside ' AXiKupvacrcrecov, 
from Ephesus TeTape;, reTapaKovra = reaaapei;, etc., from Teos 
\ff\d\wvr]'i beside OaKaacrav. 

5. In Boeotian, V, a compromise between E and I, is sometimes 
used for the close e, later i (9.2). At Corinth and Megara there 
were two characters, & and E, for the e-sounds, but usually dififer- 
entiated. See 28. 

6. In most of the alphabets the H (early B) is the sign of the 
spiritus asper, and neither 77 and co nor the lengthened e and ("spu- 
rious et and ow") are distinguished from the short e and 0. But 
in East Ionic, where the sound of the spiritus asper was lost at a 
very early period, the H, which was thus left free, was turned to 
account as a vowel sign, not so much to show a difiference in quan- 
tity (in the case of a, I, v no such need was felt) as one of quality. 
It was probably used first only for the extremely open e coming 
from d, that is for the specifically Attic-Ionic -q (8), which for a 
time was more open than the sound of the inherited e, though this 
was also open as compared with the short e, and both soon became 


identical and were denoted in the same way. To be sure, no such 
distinction is to be observed in East Ionic inscriptions, but it is 
seen in some of the Cyclades, to which the use of the H had passed 
from East Ionic, e.g. from Naxos (no. 6) NiKcivSpr), popr], etc., but 
avedeKev (with E in the penult). Siinilai- examples from Ceos (e.g. 
no. 8) and Amorgos. 

The use of H = ?/ extended not only to the Ionic but also to the 
Doric islands, Rhodes, Thera, Melos, and Crete, where it is found 
in the earliest inscriptions, though in Crete it went out of use for 
a time, not appearing for example in the Law-Code. In Central 
Ionic, where the sound of the spiritus asper still survived, as also 
in Ehodes, Thera, and Melos, the sign was used both as t) and as 
k It occurs also with the value of he, at Delos, Naxos (no. 6), 
and Oropus (no. 14.46). 

The Ionic alphabet is also characterized by its distinction of o 
and o) through dififerentiated forms of (usually Q = (o, but in 
some of the islands, namely Paros, Thasos, and Siphnos, Q = o, and 
or G = w). 

7. In 403 RC. the Ionic alphabet was officially introduced at 
Athens, and not much later replaced the native or "epichoric" 
alphabets in other parts of Greece. Inscriptions of the end of the 
fifth or the beginning of the fourth century often show a transi- 
tional form of the alphabet, partly epichoric, partly Ionic. Even 
with the full Ionic alphabet, f was generally retained where it was 
still sounded, and sometimes a form of H was used for the spiritus 
asper, as h in the Heraclean Tables and occasionally elsewhere 
(Elis, no. 60, Sicyon, Epidaurus). The Delphian Labyadae inscrip- 
tion (no. 51) has B = h, H = ?/. 

For the Cyprian syllabary, see no. 19. 

5. o for a before or after liquids. Examples are most numerous 
in Lesbian, mainly from literary and grammatical sources, as 


(7t/jo'tos = arpaTO^, hpoaea)<i = Bpaaewi, ^oKaicri = y^dXcoai, etc. 
So an^p[6]Trjv (no. 21) = dfiaprelv, like Horn, rjn^porov = •^fj.ap- 
Tov (fjL^p from iu,p, as regularly). Both arporayoi; and a-Tpdrayo'; 
occur in inscriptions, Kkewise in Boeotian crrpoTo^ in numerous 
proper names, a-TporicoTa';, ia-TpoTevaO-rj, but also a-Tparo^ in proper 
names, arpaTay(ovTo<i. The forms with a, which are the only ones 
attested for Thessalian, are to be attributed to icoivri tafluence. 
Cf. Boeot., Thess. iporo'i = e/aaro?, ^pox"<i == ^paxv<;, attested by 
proper names, Boeot., Lesb. ttojovot^ = Trdpvoyjr, whence Lesb. 
IlopvoTricov (Strabo 13.613), Tiopvoiria (no. 23). 

In Arcado-Cyprian also we find Arc. i(ji6opKd><; = e^BapKm, 
TravdyopcTK = iravrjyvpL'i but iu form belonging with West Ion. 
(Naples) dyappa (49.2), crTopirdo<; = aa-rpairaloi; (also Arc. a-Topird, 
Cypr. arpoTrd in Hesych.), Cypr. Kop^Ca (Hesych.) = KapSia, Kare- 
fopyov = *KaTepapyov aorist of *icaT-epepyco {icaTelpyoa) with the 
weak grade of the root as in eSpaKOv from SepKOfiai (49.2). 

In various West Greek dialects occur derivatives of ypd^ca with o, 
though the verb itself always has a. Thus ypo^ev<; in EUs, Argolis, 
Sicyon, in Argolis also ypo<l>evco, (Tvyypo(j)o<;, etc., Heracl. aveiriypo- 
</>09, Cret. aTToypo^ov, eyypo^ov, Mel. Tpocfxov. Cf. also Cret., Epid. 
KaTaXo^ev<i = *Kara\a/3ev';, support, Cret. a/3Xo7ria = a^Xa^Ca. 

a. Some of tlie examples, if taken by themselves, might be regarded 
simf)ly as inherited o-grade forms (cf . 49.2), e. g. Arc. i(j>dopKioi (cf . i<j)9opa). 
But an actual substitution must be recognized in Lesb. o-rporos etc., and, 
■while the precise conditions and scope of the phenomenon are not clear, it 
is evidently one in which all the Aeolic dialects and Arcado-Cyprian had a 
share. Whether ypoc^eiJs etc. are anything more than inherited o-grade 
forms may be less certain, but it is probable that these are Achaean sur- 
vivals (see p. 7), and belong in this same connection. 

6. for a in other cases. 6v = avd in Lesbian, Thessalian (Pe- 
lasgiotis), and Arcado-Cyprian {iv, see 22). Lesb., Arc. SexoToi = 
Se/earo?, also Arc. Ssko = Se'/ca, heKorov = ewoToV, and Lesb. evoro^ 
— evaTO's. Thess. k^ofieivvov = e^dfirjvpv. Delph. evTo^rjia, burial 
rites, Heracl. to</)kbi^, hurial-plaee (cf. ra^os). Kodap6<i = Kadapo^ 
in Heraclea, Sybaris, Locris (Heppodapidv), Elean Kodaptni;. 


a. The explanation is uncertain, and not necessarily the same for all 
the forms cited here. For example, it is possible that the o of SeKoros etc. 
is to be viewed in the same light as that of cIkoiti = West Greek piKaTi. See 
116 a. But the preference for o appears to he, here as in 5, an Aeolic- 
Aohaean characteristic. 

7. e for a. For forms with e beside a which fall within the 
regular system of vowel-gradation, see 49.2-4. 

An actual change of final a to e is seen in Thess. Sie = Sid. Of. 
Thess. -ec = -at (27). 


8. Attic-Ionic r/ from d. Original a, which remains unchanged 
in all other dialects, becomes tj in Attic-Ionic. Thus ti/j,'^, ^rjfii, 
la-Trjfii, but in other dialects Tifia (a-stem), (j^dni (Lat. farl), la-Tdfii 
(Lat. stare). For the contrast between this rj and that which repre- 
sents an inherited e-sound and is common to the other dialects 
also, note Att.-Ion. lirjT'qp, elsewhere /MaTrjp (Lat. mater). 

But Attic differs from Ionic, in that it has d, not 17, after e, i, 
and p, as yevea, olicid, x'^P^ = Ion- jeve'^, oIkCtj, x^PV- 

a. The change of a in the direction of ij began in the Attic-Ionic period, 
and was universal. The d in Att. X'^^P^ ^tc. is not the original d unchanged, 
but a special Attic reversion to d, which occurred, however, before the new 
sound had become completely identical with that representing original e, 
and hence did not affect the latter (so Att. ■jrpa.TTOi, but pjjTwp). That is, 
the 17 from d was at first an extremely open e-sound, even more open than 
that of original e, and even in the historical period the two sounds are 
distinguished in the spelling of some inscriptions of the Cyclades. See 4.6. 

6. The d arising from lengthening of a in connection with original inter- 
vocalic vcr, (TV, etc., undergoes the same change, e.g. Att.-Ion. i<j>rjva. from 
l<^va,, original *£^av<Ta. See 76, 77.1. But in rds from Tavs and irStra from 
irdva-a, original *iravTia., the d was of later origin and was unafiected. See 
77.3, 78. 


9. t from e before a vowel. 

1. Even in Attic an e before another vowel had a closer sound 
than in other positions, and was frequently written «, as 0«o'? = 
6e6<;, veiuK = vew. So, sometimes, in Ionic, as £?&)? = em?, Seto'/iei/o? 
(Oropus) = Seoiievoi. 


In several dialects the e progressed so far in the direction of t 
that it was frequently, or even regularly, written i. Thus : 

2. Boeotian. The spelling is usually i, but sometimes e, ei, or H 
(see 4.5), as diof, OeLot = 0e6<;, aveOiav, avedeiav beside avedeav, 
Ylo\vic\V-e<i = IloXvKXer]';, lovTO'i = iovTOi, piovrof = peovTOi. 

a. Boeotian € in general had a relatively close sound, and the spelling a 
occurs occasionally even before a consonant, as HevapEiVo) = 'Sivaperov, ®i6- 
<l>euTTOs = *®£66€(TTOi (68.2), ■jreiroLOVTtuTa-t = -eero-t. In ev ©eurirt^s, ©etoTrteus, 
etc. the spelling a is so constant that it perhaps stands for original ij (16), 
which in other dialects was shortened as if the name of the town were 
connected with OicnrK etc. 

3. Cyprian. At Idalium the spelling is regularly t, as 6i6<i, 
l6(v)Ta = iovTU, peiTija = eirea. 

4. Cretan. We find t regularly, except where the e was once 
followed by f . That is, the change was prior to the loss of inter- 
vocalic p; and the e which later, with the loss of f, came to stand 
before another vowel, was unaffected. Thus 16vto<; = e6vT0<;, Kokimv 
= KoKeatv, TrXte? = Hom. 7r\ee9, — but vleo';, ponceo's, hpop,edv. 

5. Laconian. We find i, with the same restriction as in Cretan, 
in early inscriptions (also in Alcman and Ar. Lysist.), e.g. Bioi, 
avioxeov = ^vioxecov. In later inscriptions the spelling is usually e. 

6. Heraclean. Verbal forms show i, with the same restriction 
as in Cretan, e.g. aSiKiav, ep^eTplcofiea, but peovra, Seofieva. In 
other words, TifiOKpario';, but usually e, as pireo'i, owing to Koivrj 

7. In Argolic and Thessalian, both of which usually show e, 
there are some examples of t, as Arg. ^to'?, irehiov = fiereatv, Thess. 
dio^, Aimv. 

10. t from e before v in Arcado-Cyprian. Iv = iv is the regular 
form in Arcadian and Cyprian, also in compounds as Arc. Ivdym, 
ifi^aivo), lvcf)op^ia), lyKexvPVicoi, ivBiKO'i, ivTratni, IvrroXd, lyyvo^, 
lviiev<l)ri<i and IV/ioi/^os, hlameworthy (opp. to afiep,^^^, ap,op.<^o<;), 
Cypr. ivaXCva (lva\a\ia-p.eva). Cf. also early Arc. (Mantinea, no. 16) 
airexop.ivo'}, a7ruSeSo/u,t'v[o?] = -pAvovi. But €V occurs in other 


words, and the more precise conditions of the change are not yet 
clear, iv = iv is found also, possibly an " Achaean " survival (see 
p. 7), in some Cretan inscriptions of Eleutherna and Vaxus, and ia 
an Achaean iascription. 

11. t beside e in other cases. The occasional interchange of i 
and e in related words, as irCrvrifii beside weravvvfii (a kind of 
vowel-gradation, but not of the common types given in 49), is occa- 
sionally seen among dialectic forms of the same word. Horn, iriav- 
pes = iretyervpes, Tecrcrepe;, Att. ■xtXioi from *j^i(7\toi, while Ion. 
j^eCXioi, Lesb. j^eXXiot, etc. are from *;^eo-Xtot (76). Att. earta 
appears with i in all other dialects, so far as quotable, e.g. Ion. 
ia-riTj, Lesb. larCa, Thess. 'lo-o-Ttateio?, Boeot. 'la-Tirico, Delph. 
'lo-Ttto, Locr. laria, Hera;cl. 'ItrTieto?, Syrac. 'laria, Ehod. IcrnaTo- 
piov, Coan larCa, Cret. '\aria. Arc. Fto-rtau. In this case the t, as 
well as the early substitution of ' for /r ia most dialects, may he 
due to the influence of la-Trjfii. 

12. a from e before p in Northwest Greek. Locr. ^dpeiv, irardpa, 
cLfidpa, av(f>6Tapo<i, peairdpio<s (but p-epo';). Here also hapicTTai 
(no. 55 ; hut heXearai no. 56) = eXeaOai, with p ioT \ after the 
analogy of the present alpeto (as, vice versa, Cret. alXea = aipeco, with 
X from the aorist)'. EL <f>dpev, pdpyov, irdp (= Trepi), bw6Tapo<i, 
varapiv, but the spelling ap is not quite uniform even in the early 
inscriptions, and later gives way to ep (see 241). Delph. <^dpev 
in a fifth-century inscription (no. 50), and Mpfiara, irevTafiapi- 
reiav (no. 51), show that in Phocian too p had a similar effect on 
the pronunciation of a preceding e, but except in these instances 
the spelling is ep {<j>epev even in no. 51). Cf. also Ach. Zeus 'Afid- 
pto9, and Pamph. virap = v/rep. 

a. Elean has a also after p, as XoTpai[d/to'ov] beside XaTpuoiievov, pa- 
arpdai from * (31), KartajoatW, Karuxpavaoi in contrast to fjtvyaBdrjv, 
<t>vya8cuavTi (see 161.1); also before final v,asfiav = p-hr, yvoiiav = yvZfiev, 
3 pi. opt. aTTorCvoiav, iniOeuiv, (Twrnv, etc. ; occasionally elsewhere, as eim- 
/8eoi = cuo-£)8eot, (TKevdov = -io>v, showing that Elean e in general had a very 
open sound. Cf . El. d = ij (IS)- 


b. Epid. Kpa/juxa-ai = KpejjAa-ai and /mvroL = fLfinoi, thougli more isolated, 
and open to other possible explanations (fjulvToi contamination with /xav = 
/xiyv, Kpa/jiaa-ai weak grade or assimilation), are perhaps to be viewed in the 
same light as the Elean forms under a. 

13. West Greek a = East Greek e. Besides the examples of 
dialectic interchange of a and e cited under the head of vowel- 
gradation (49.2-4), in which the distribution of the a and e forms 
is various (e.g. apa-rjv, epar]v, — /SaWto, SeWco), there is a group 
of by-forms in which the preference for the a forms is a marked 
West Greek characteristic. 

1. lapog (or lap6<;) is the regular form in early inscriptions of 
aU West Greek dialects and Boeotian, iep6<; occurring only later 
and plainly due to kolvti influence. The situation is probably the 
same in Thessalian, though the occurrences of both forms are late, 
te/ao's (or te/jo'?) is Attic-Ionic and Arcado-Cyprian, whUe a third 
form is seen in Le'sb. lpo<; (likewise ipev;, Ipeia, IprjTevco, late xarei- 
pmv with €1 = I), Ion. ipd'i, ip6<; beside lepo';, lepo'i (probably from 
*la-po- beside *la-apo-, *la-epo-). There are many other words with 
variation between -epoi and -ap6<;, as fiiep6<i, fjLiapoi, but with 
widely different dialectic distribution. 

2. "Aprafii';, so far as the name is quotable from early inscrip- 
tions, is the form of all West Greek dialects except Cretan, and of 
Boeotian. In later Doric and Delphian inscriptions this is usually 
replaced by "Apre/it?. 

3. Ku = Ke (dv) is the form of all West Greek dialects and Boeo- 
tian, while Thessalian has ks, like Lesbian and Cyprian. See 134.2. 
The same ku in oku, toku, ttoku, which are also West Greek (and 
doubtless Boeotian) = Att.-Ion., Arc.-Cypr. ore etc. (but Lesb. o'to 
etc. See 132.9). 7a = 76 is likewise West Greek and Boeotian. Ad- 
verbs in -da = -9e, -6ev, belong to some, but not all. West Greek 
dialects. See 133.1. 

a. wrtpiK = iTepos is not confined to West Greek dialects, but is also 
quotable from Arcadian, Boeotian, and Lesbian, and even for Attic is 
implied by artpoi with crasis. So far as we know, Irtpos belongs to Attic- 
Ionic only, all examples in other dialects being late. 


14. Original r), that is r) representing original e, remains un- 
changed in nearly all dialects. Contrast the special Attic-Ionic tj 
from d (8), both being seen in Attic-Ionic /iijTTj/ci = ixaTtjp of other 
dialects. On the introduction of the character H, see 4.6. 

15. d from -q in Elean. The sound of r} was so open in Elean 
that it approximated that of d, and was frequently, though by no 
means consistently, denoted by a. Thus nd (but also /ie, /i^) = 
ixri, fpdrpa = prjrpa, ^aai\de<; = -ije?, ea (but also eU) = eirj, Safio- 
aioia = -oiT), irXadvovra beside irXedvovri. Of. a for e (12 a). 

16. ei from r) in Thessalian and Boeotian. In these dialects the 
sound was so close that with the introduction of the Ionic alpha- 
bet it was uniformly denoted not by tj but by et, which at that 
time represented a close e. Thess., Boeot.-/tiet = yn??, dve6eiKe = 
aveOrjKe, fieiv6<; = fiTiv6<;, Thess. ySacriXetos, Boeot. •ypaixfjLareio'i = 
-fjO<;, Thess., Boeot. a-Tarelpa'i, Boeot. /idreip, iraTeip = -rrjp-. 

a. In late Boeotian inscriptions the spelling t is sometimes found, as irapt's 
beside wapeis (eis = ^s, Att. -rjv, 163.3). 

17. Lesb. al/jitaecov = r)p.ia-eoav, also (Etj'm. Magn.) alp.Lovo'; — 
■fjiiiovo';, Kiaioho'i = 'HcrioSo?. The explanation is difficult, since 
in all other cases rj remains unchanged in Lesbian. Perhaps t) was 
more open initially than in other positions, and this, in connection 
with the epenthetic vowel (47), led to ai. 

18. e from i after p in the Aeolic dialects. An open pronuncia- 
tion of I after p is indicated by occasional spellings such as Lesb. 
Aa/iOKpeTQ) = Aij/iOKpiTov (but Kpivvat, KpiTiov), Thess. Kpevvdfiev 
(Lesb. KpCvvm), 'T/Sjoe'o-Ta? beside 'T^piarwi, direkevOepeaOevaa 
from cnreXevdepi^Q}. Lesb. reprot is perhaps from *TpeTO<; = rpl- 
To<;, but cf. also 19.2. A probable Boeotian example is rpeireSSa, 
TpeTreSSira?, beside rpdireSSa. Cf. Hesych. rpOire^av ■ rrjv rpdire^av. 
BoicoToi. But vowel-assimilation (46) is also possible. 


a. Lesb. Kcpvav = Kipvdvai owes its c to the influence of inipfura etc. 
6. El. ■TTo'Xtp = ttoXk, and y3ei/coi = fiwioi, though isolated occurrences, 
indicate an open pronunciation of the i. Cf . El. a = e and a. = rj (12 a, 15). 

19. Consonantal t (t) from antevocalic i in Lesbian and Thes- 
salian. The consonantal pronunciation of antevocalic i might 
occur anywhere in rapid speech, but was especially characteristic 
of AeoUc, as indicated by the following related phenomena in 
Lesbian and Thessalian. 

1. Lesb. §■ from St in ?a', Kcip^a, ZoWuo-o?, from glosses or late 
inscriptions, the usual inscriptional spelling being Stti etc. Cf. 
also Ziovv{aLos:) on a coin of Phocaea, Cypr. icop^ia- KapSi'a 

2. Lesb. fi€T€ppo<s, aXXoVe/a/aos, lieppap.o'i (Herodian) = /ier/ato?, 
aXKoTpiQ';, Ilpia/jLO';, -the development being pi, p^, epi, epp. 

3. Thessalian doubling of consonants before i, which may then 
be retained or omitted in the spelling, as ISSiav, Tro'Wtos, irpo^ev- 
viovv, Kvppov beside Kvpiov, apyvppoi beside apyvpioi, Mvacraa = 
Mvaaid. Cf. Att. ^oppai from /Sopedf. 

4. Omission of i, as Lesb. apryvpa = apyvpia, Thess. rpaicdhi = 
rpiaKaSt, etc. (see also under 3). 

20. Interchange of i and v. Assimilation of t to w of the fol- 
lowing syllable is seen in rj/xvav — •^fiiav, which appears in Attic 
in the early fourth century, in other dialects only late ; the oppo- 
site assimilation in /3t/3\to)c beside ^v^Xiov. Influence of the pre- 
ceding ev, or of the suffix -avvr), in Lac. 'EXeuAwta = 'EXewff/wa 
(also Olynth. 'EXeuo-vvto?, name of a month). Other by-forms, the 
relation of which is uncertain, are 'A/x^tKribi/e? and 'AfKpiKTvovei, 
Meg. alcTifivd.Ta'i, ai(7if»,vSivre<; = al<Tvp,vrjTri<; etc. 

21. I remains unchanged everywhere. But in late inscriptions 
it is sometimes denoted by ei, which had come to have the sound 
I, as Tet/tta or Teifirj = tI/ii]. 


22. V from o, especially in Arcado-Cyprian. In both Arcadian 
and Cyprian, final o neariy always appears as v. Gen. sg. -dv = -ao, 
as Arc. KaWiau, Cypr. 'Ovaaijopav. Cypr. 3 sg. mid. -tv = -to, as 
yevoiTv, ifpeTcia-aTv (in Arcadian there are no early examples of 
the ending, and -ro in a late inscription may be due to koivt] influ- 
ence). Arc, Cypr. airv = airo, Arc. kutv formed after airv, Arc. 
dWv = dWo. But d-irv is also Lesbian and Thessalian. Cf. also vv 
for 6v = dvd (6) in Cypr. vvedeKe (once) bfeside ovedeice, and Arc. 
vveOvae (no. 15 ; in later inscriptions dvd, due to the Koivrj). 

a. In Lesbian there are several examples of initial v = o, especially 
before ]tl, as v^ioicus, v/jLoKoyux. 

b. ow/jua = ovofia is common to nearly all, perhaps all, dialects except 
Attic-Ionic. Cf. the compounds dvuint/xos etc., which are universal. 

c. In Chalcid. hmrv = inro, and 9ijpvDs, the second v is due to assimila- 
tion to the first. 

d. In Pamphylian, o in final, syllables regularly becomes v, written v 
or ov. 


23. ov from w in Thessalian. Long 6 in Thessalian, •whether 
original or secondary (25), became a close o, then it, and, after the 
introduction of the Ionic alphabet, was regularly denoted by ov. 
Xovpa = ;^<»/3<x, <j)i\dv0povira = (pikdvdpmira, rovv rayovv irdv- 
Tovv = Twv raywv irdvTmv. Cf. et from i? (16). 

V and u 

24. Instead of becoming a sound like German u, French u, as 
it did in Attic at an early period, the original M-sound (English oo 
in food) was retained in several, perhaps the majority of, dialects. 
This is most obvious where, the Attic values of the letters being 
taken as a basis, the spelling v was replaced by ov. 

In Boeotian, ov begins to appear beside v about 350 B.C., and is 
frequent after 300 B.C., though v is not vmcommon until the last 
quarter of the century. Thus ovirep, Kovpio<;, dpryovpiov, a-ovvypa- 
^ov, Tov)^a, ovovfia (22 I), etc. In the tliird century the spelling 


lov (pronounced like English u in cuhe ?) is also employed, though 
never consistently, after t, S, 6, v, and \, as Tiovj(^a, Siovo = Svo, 
'WlovSiko^, oviov/ia, Ai(oviovcno<;, Aiov/cia/cco, etc. ; also once after <r 
(J,i,ow£en<;) and once initially (lovico = vlov). Another, but compara- 
tively rare, spelling in Boeotian is o, as oTrep = inre'p, Qoaia = dvaCa. 

a. Except in Boeotian and Pamphylian, where ou is also frequent, the 
spelling V is retained in inscriptions. So in Laconian, for which the reten- 
tion of the «-sound is amply attested by the numerous glosses spelled with 
ov in accordance with Attic values, and by the pronunciation of the modem 
Tsakonian. In various other dialects, as Arcadian, Cjrprian, Thessalian, 
Lesbian, Cretan, Euboean, there are indications, of one kind or another, of 
the same pronunciation, such as the occasional spelling ov or o for v, or v 
for (22 a), use of 9 before v (Chalcid. 9v9vvs, X-qifvOcK, etc.), or-present- 
day pronunciation. 

Secondary i and 5. " Spurious Diphthongs " 

25. In many dialects, as in Attic, e and o differed in quality 
from T) and «, being close vowels \e, q). Consequently the long 
vowels which came from them by contraction or compensative 
lengthening, since they retained the same quality, were not iden- 
tical with Tj and <o, but were e and o, the latter becoming u, and 
eventually came to be designated by et and ov after these original 
diphthongs had become monophthongs in pronunciation (28, 34). 
But in other dialects they were identical with t) and to, and were 
so written. Hence such dialectic variations as rpets and Tprj<: from 
*rpeie<i (42.3), eljjii and r)ixi from *e(Tp,C (76), <f)6eip(o and (i>6rip(o 
from *^6epia) (74), ^eivo? and ItjVo? from f eV/ro? (54), x^^'^i-oi- and 
XV^oi from *%e£rXtot (76), ^ovXij and /SmXa from */3o\va (75), 
Kovpr] and Kcopd from Koppd (54), gen. sg. -ov and -to from -oio 
(106.1), ace. pi. -OK? and -to? from -01/9 (78). 

The dialects which regularly have 7/ and a in such forms are 
Arcadian, Cyprian, Elean, Laconian, Heraclean, and Cretan. Boeo- 
tian has to, but et as for original rj (16). 

a. Other dialects which occasionally show iy and u, though « and ou are 
usual, are Argolic (^A,eTo beside tiXtTo, tj/jlcv, ySuXas, etc.; at Hermione 


gen. sg. in -m, ace. pi. in -us), Rhodian (^/tt, k^vos, BojXios, HjjvtdSa, etc.), 
Coan (ij/i.ei', k^vos, St^Ko/ml, KapTruivri, etc.), Theran (^/At, Tfsrj's, ButXaKparrp, 
etc.; at Cyrene, a colony of Thera, regularly rj, (o). It is probable that 
these dialects belong properly with those which have ?;, <o regularly, and 
that their usual a, ov are due to the fact that with the introduction of the 
Ionic alphabet they also adopted in the main the Attic-Ionic orthography 
of such words. 

6. XOP' ~ X"P" (-'^tt. ^ap, x^pos) is even more widespread, e. g. not only 
Cret. Ktpavs, Arc. lyKejfi/pijKoi, Cypr. v^pov, but Epid. )(rjpas and even Delph. 
iK£)(ripiav, Corinth. cvcK^iypov. But it is probable that this xijp- does not 
rest whoUy upon *^ep<T- (79), but is due in part at least to the influence of 
a nom. sg. ^(^p (quoted by Herodian as Aeolic) formed after the analogy 
of inherited p-stems in -j/p. Cf. Att. /xi^v in place of /ias (112.3). 

c. SmXxK, Dor. SuXos (Cret., Theocr., CalUm.) do not belong here. 8ov- 
Xos has a genuine diphthong, as shown by the spelling ov in early Attic 
inscriptions and in Boeotian, while Su>A.o9 must come from a by-form *8o>i;- 
Xos. The relation of Lesb., Boeot., Dor. Stv to Att. ow is obscure, since av 
is also Ionic. 

d. It is to be remembered that the early inscriptions of most dialects have 
simply E, 0, which we transcribe e, o, no matter whether the later spell- 
ing is et, ov, or rj, la. Among the ij, to dialects the actual spelling rj, *) does 
not occur, of course, until the introduction of the Ionic alphabet about 
400 B.C., except that in Crete, Rhodes, etc., where H = i; is much earlier, 
we find -q/u etc. in the earliest inscriptions. 

Of the ei, ov dialects, Coriuthian is the only one in which the identity of 
genuine and spurious et, ov belongs to the earliest period, ovring to the very 
early monophthongization of the diphthongs (28, 34). The spelling even 
of the earliest inscriptions is El, OV at Corcyra (e. g hviov, api), and 
OV (but E, not El) at Corinth. In Attic-Ionic examples of El, OV occur 
in the fifth century (E\pl even earlier), but E, are more common until 
after 400 B.C., and occasionally appear much later. In general El becomes 
established earlier than OV, and many inscriptions use El uniformly but 
vary between and OV. In Ionic the gen. sg. -0 is especially persistent. 
In Locrian no. 56 has only E, (e.g. hayev, tos), while the somewhat 
earlier no. 55 has El (<j>a.pE\v etc.), and OV in the ace. pi. (tovs) but 
in the gen. sg. (Sa/io). This last difEerenee, though only a graphic vagary, 
is observed also in several Ionic inscriptions. In other dialects El, OV 
come in with the introduction of the Ionic alphabet, and even then the 
spelling varies for a time. 



26. 7] from ai in Boeotian. The diphthong is retained in the 
earliest inscriptions, sometimes as ai, sometimes as ae, especially 
at Tanagra, e.g. Aecrxoi'Sa?, 'Otci^ae. But it came to be pronounced 
as a monophthong, an open e, and with the introduction of the 
Ionic alphabet was regularly denoted by r), e.g. /c^ = Kai, rj = al, 
@ei^rio<s = @r]^aio<;, dat. sg. and nom. pi. -v = -«', dat. pi. -j?9 = at?, 
infin. -ar), -f^^V = -<^a*. -a-0ai. In very late inscriptions even et is 
found, as @et;8etos. 

27. ei from at in Thessalian. ' In general at, remains, but at 
Larissa we find ei for final ai, e.g. e'T|ra0to-Tet = iyjr'q<f)ia-Tac, ^e'Wet- 
Tei = ^ovXtjtm, yivveirei = jiyvr]Tai, and, with added v (139.2, 156), 
Treireiareiv = ireTrela-daL, 6v<ypd'\{reip = avaypdy^ai, e^dvypevGeiv = 
e(j)aipovVTai, ^eWovvdeiv = ^ovXavrai. 


28. Sooner or later ei became everywhere a monophthong, a close 
e (e), though the speUing was retained and extended to the e of 
different origin (25). In Corinthian this had taken place at the 
time of the earliest iuscriptions, and, while at Corcyra the spelling 
was El (25 d), at Corinth the sound was nearly always denoted by 
a single sign, though generally differentiated from the open e or tj, 
e.g. ApEvia, i.e. Afevia=AeLviov, HoteSuvi, i.e. JloreSavi (rarely 
UoTBiSdv), but uvsObkb = aveOrjKe. Cf. also reSe = reiSe in an early 
Megarian inscription (here & = e, E = t; and genuine or spurious ei). 

a. At a late period the i progressed still further to an i, usually mth 
retention of the old spelling a, which then came to be used also for original 
i (21), but sometimes with phonetic spelling i. In some words this late 
spelling with i became fixed in our texts, e. g. ritrio, erura, cktio-is, of which 
the proper spelling, as shown by inscriptions of Attic and other dialects, is 
Titcu), tTeicra, eKTacris. 

b. But before vowels it remained e for some time after it had become i 
elsewhere, and, to distinguish it from a = I, was often written rj, e.g. iroXi- 
Tijav, Uprja, etc., especially in the Augustan period. 

c. For Elean ai from a after p, see 12 a. 


29. t from ei in Boeotian. The change in pronunciation which 
took place everywhere at a late period (28 a) occurred very early 
in Boeotian, and here showed itself in the spelling, which in the 
fifth century varies between et, h (4.5), and i, but later is regularly 
t, e.g. Ti-a-ifievei = Teto-t/ie'i'ij?, eTrt = ivei, eTrtSet = iireiBij (cf. also 
16), e;^i = e'xei, Kinevw; = K€ifieva<;. 


30. V from ot in Boeotian. The diphthong ot was retained much 
longer than ai (26) or ei (29), appearing as oi, but also, in some of 
the earhest inscriptions especially of Tanagra, as oe, e.g. Xoe/>i\o9, 
YheKuSd/jLoe. But in the third century it became a monophthong, 
probably similar to the German o, to denote which, approximately, 
the V, with its Attic value of m as a basis (cf. ov for v, 24), was em- 
ployed with increasing frequency from about 250 b.c. on, though 
not uniformly till the end of the century, e. g. fVKia = otKi'a, dat. 
sg. and nom. pi. -v = -oi, dat. pi. -v<; = -ot?. Where ot is followed by 
a vowel it is usually retained (in contrast to at, 26), as BottoTu?, 
though ButoTftij' occurs once, also o ttvh? = •^ irola. 

In some late inscriptions of Lebadea and Chaeronea the spelling 
« is also found, indicating the further progress of the sound to t 
(see 28 a), e.g. aurei? = avTol<;. 

ax, €1, 01 before vowels 

31. In the case of ai, et, ol, also vi, before vowels the omission 
of I, consequent upon its consonantal pronunciation with the follow- 
ing vowel, is to be observed in various dialects, though the spelling 
is anything but constant, and it is impossible to make any general 
statement as to the conditions of the loss. Thus, as in Attic 'KBtj- 
vaia, later 'KOjjvda, 'A0r]va, Scoped beside Smpeid, evvoa beside ev- 
voia, vo'?, vik beside vto'?, vlv<;, so e.g. Ion. aTekerj beside areXeirj, 
•jroiricTeav = iroiriaeiav, Lesb. hiKdw; = StKaito?, evvoav = evvoiav, 
Thess. Tewdot = TevvaCov, Arc. aTopnrdo'; = aa-Tpa7ralo<;, El. ea 
beside ete = et?;, fiacrrpda = *ixaa-Tpeia (12 a), Cret. ayeXaoi = 


ajeXaloi, Delph. ^amro'; = *(f)aiaT6<i {^aw). So especially in forms 
of TToieco, as Att. Troei, iroija-co (but ttoicov), Lesb. Troj^criB, IpoTrorjrai, 
Boeot. i-TToeia-e, Arc. iroevTco, El. etrnroevTcov, Coan vmroav beside 

a. Owing to the variation in forms like the above, the diphthongal spell- 
ing sometimes appears in words where it has no etymological justification, 
as late dySoojs, oySou^KovTa, Poirfiiia. 

OM, €V, Ot) 

32. In av, ev, ov, the v remained an M-sound, not becoming ii as 
it did in many dialects when not part of a diphthong. This is shown 
not only by Ionic ao, eo (33), but by occasional varieties of spelling 
such as Coriath. 'Ajj;tX\eow, Coreyr. apvrdv, Att. apvTap, Ion. 
afVTO, Cret. ctfiefvcraadai,, where f iudicates the natural glide be- 
fore the w-sound, and Locr. ^afTruKTiov, Cret. (nrofSSdv, etc. 

33. ao, eo from av, ev ia East Ionic, ao, eo appear in East Ionic 
inscriptions (eo also in Amphipolis and Thasos) of the fourth cen- 
tury (eo once in Chios iu fifth century) and later, e.g. aoT6<s, raora, 
eovota, eoepyeTT}';. This spelling is frequent even in kolvij iuscrip- 
tions of this region. 

a. For El. av from eu after p, see 12 a. Some late Cretan inscriptions 
show ov = £V (of. Att. ov from eo), as eXovOepos, iiriTdSovfia. The explana- 
tion of (1) = ov in I)elph. averwTos, late Lao. w™ = avrov, etc., is doubtful. 

34. ov became, in most dialects, a monophthong (first g, later u), 
though the spelling ov was generally retained and eventually ex- 
tended to the secondary o. In Corinthian this had taken place at 
the time of the earliest inscriptions. See 25 d. 

a. Occasionally words which contain genuine ov are found with the 
spelling o in early inscriptions when o for secondary o was usual, e. g. ok = 
ovK, ^6v = Povv (or = |8(ov? See 37.1). In forms of ovtos, which in gen- 
eral have genuine ov (e.g. Cret. tovto etc.), this spelling is so frequent in 
early Attic, e.g. toto, totov {toto also in Thasos; cf. also Orop. ei/ro^a, 
i. e. ivravBa = Ivravda), as to point to some special cause. Possibly, as has 
been suggested, there existed beside the usual forms with genuine ov 
(e. g. TOVTO from *to-v-to), a gen. sg. toto (tovtov), formed by doubling of 
TO (jm}), which then influenced the other forms. 


av, e\) before vowels 

35. Certain words show a v diphthong in Lesbian (and in Homer) 
in contrast to other dialects, e.g. aiio)? = Dor. etc. a(/r)a)? (cf. Hesych. 
a/Sto • irpai), Horn, ijw, Att. em?, from *avcrQ><; (cf. L. aurora from 
*ausds-d), vavo<; = Dor. etc. vd{f)6'; (cf. Lac. vapov), Hom. V7)6<;, 
Att. veei?, probably from *vaa-p6<i (54/), 8ev«B = Att. ^eco, need, from 

a. In such forms u comes from a combination containing u or ^, not from 
simple intervocalic p, which in Lesbian, as elsewhere, regularly drops out 
without affecting the preceding vowel. Forms like eviSe from *ipSi are 
poetical only, and due to metrical lengthening or doubling of the p under 
the ictus. The consonant-doubling in hypocoristic proper names (89.5) 
accounts for the diphthong in Thess. KA.£vas, from *KA.c/rds, Calymn. KAeu- 
avTos, Cret. ^vos, Neuavros. 

36. In words with regular antevocahc ev the natural ghde be- 
tween V and the following vowel is often expressed by p, as Boeot. 
Ba«ev/rat, Cypr. KareaKevpaae, Lac. Ev^aXKrji; (/S = p, 51). 

In late inscriptions v is sometimes omitted, especially in deriva- 
tives of (T/cewo?, as Att. •jrapea-Keao'fieviuv, Lesb. einaKedaavTa, 
Corcyr. iirurKed^eiv, aKeo6riKa<;, Delph. KUTaa-KediirrjTai. 

Long Diphthongs 

37. 1. The original long diphthongs di, du, ei, eu, 6i, ou, except 
when final, were regularly shortened in prehistoric times to ai, au, 
ei, eu, 01, ou, or, in some cases, lost the second element. Hence such 
by-forms as ySow? from *^a>v^ (cf. Skt. gdus) but Dor. ^m (cf. Lat. 
bos, Skt. ace. sing, gdm ; ySwv also once in Homer), Zevs from *Zi;t5? 
(cf. Skt. dydus) but ace. Zrjv (cf. Lat. dies), whence, with transfer to 
consonant declension, Z^va, Zijvo'?, etc., Cret. Afjva, T^va (84). 

2. The Greek long diphthongs may be original when final, but 
otherwise are of secondary origiu. Most of the latter arose by loss 
of an intervening consonant, as «\ats, kXtj^, from *«\af t? (cf. Lat. 
cldvis), and in the earlier period these were not diphthongs but 
were pronounced in two syllables. So kXi;i9, xPV^^fo, iroXefi'^io^, 


iraTpmio';, etc. regularly in Homer, and often in the later Ionic 
poets. This pronunciation is also indicated by occasional speULngs 
such as Iriuoi, 6mii]v, leprjua, xRV'^^^'^! i^ lo^^c inscriptions. On 
the other hand the change of iji to ei (39) or the loss of the i (38) 
presupposes the diphthongal pronunciation ; and where we find e.g. 
XP'n^o>, leprjov, and p^/jj^f^w, kprjiov, side by side, the latter must be 
understood as %jO?;t^a), lepijiov. But in general it is impossible to 
determine just when the change from dissyllabic to diphthongal 
pronunciation took place, and hence it is often uncertain whether 
we should accent e.g. ic\r]k («:\r;is) or «X^t9 («^27?)) %/»;''?'*' or 
Xpi^iK^^, ol/crjio'i, olicrjiov, or olicrjio';, oIkijiov, and editors of the same 
texts differ in their practice. We employ the accentuation which 
goes with the earlier pronunciation, though without the mark of 
diaeresis, for the early Ionic inscriptions ; and likewise in general, 
simply as a matter of convention, in citing forms of this kind in the 

38. d, T], 0), from at, r)i, mi. In Attic the i ceased to be pro- 
nounced in the second century B.C., and the spelling without i 
(the iota subscript is a mediaeval device ; in inscriptions t is written 
like other. letters or omitted entirely) became more and more fre- 
quent, and may be found in late inscriptions from all parts of 
Greece. But in some dialects this dates from an earlier period. 

East Ionic has occasional examples of dat. sg. -7} = -t}i, from the 
sixth century B.C. on, though -Tjt is the usual spelling. 

Lesbian has rd 'iiiKiaCoi, in a fifth-century inscription (no. 20), 
though this is possibly only an error due to confusion with the 
genitive construction which follows. For no. 21 (first half fourth 
century) and no. 22 (324 B.C.) have uniformly dat. sg. -at, -at 
(3 sg. subj. -7)1 in no. 21, -77 in no. 22 ; see also 149). But from the 
end of the fourth century the forms in -a, -w, -77 predominate. 

Thessalian has from the fifth century dat. sg. Ta^poSirai to,, 
and raya beside arayiai (in no. 33), and in inscriptions in the 
Ionic alphabet we find regularly dat. sg. -a, -ov (= «, 23), 3 sg. 
subj. -et (= T], 16). 


Cyprian has dat. sg. -a, -o, beside -di, -oi, but in the Idalium- 
bronze (no. 19) only in the case of the article when followed by i, 
as TO ipovi. 

a. The loss of i probably began in the article, which was proclitic. 

6. The fluctuation between the historical and the phonetic spelling in late 
inscriptions introduced confusion in the spelling of forms with original -q, w ; 
hence such spellings as nom. sg. ^ovXi^i, gen. sg. tS>l Sa/iui, imv. e^erwt. 
Such imperative forms in -twi and -a-6<M, where this spelling was favored by 
the subj. in -^i., are especially frequent, notably in Cos. 

39. €1 from rji. The history of tji differs in some dialects from 
that of at, mi, — especially in Attic, where it became et (i.e. f) some 
two centuries before at, an became a, a. 

In the case of medial i/t of secondary origin (37.2) the spelling 
et is frequent in the fourth century and from about 300 B.C. is 
almost universal, e.g. aXet? from ic\rji<!, Xeio-r^s from Xtjicttij's, 
XeiTOvpyea from XtjiTovpyeeo, 

In inflectional endings et is also frequent in the fourth century 
and predominates in the third and second, e.g. dat. sg. /SovXel, 
3 sg. subj. etTret. But here, owing to the analogy of other forms 
with 1/ of the same system, as ^ovX'^<;, ^ovXriv, etTriyre, rjt was 
never given up and eventually was fully restored, so that the nor- 
mal speUing in imperial times was rji or 17 (38). 

The spelling et beside ijt, partly at least due to Attic influence, 
is also frequent in third- and second-century inscriptions of other 
dialects, or even earlier as in the Heraclean Tables, where we 
find 3 sg. subj. vifiei, ^epei, etc. (so usually, but twice -r}c, once -rj). 

a. The change of iji to a is also Euboean, where it was accompanied by 
a change of tot to ot. In Eretrian this was effected about 400 B.C. Some- 
what later a occurs beside tji at Amphipolis, and pt beside wi at Olynthus. 
Dat. sg. -£t is found also in an inscription from Naples. 

Non-Diphthongal Combinations of Vowels 
(Contraction etc.) 

40. Owing to the proethnic loss of intervocalic i and o-, a 
large number of new vowel-combinations arose, and these were 


subsequently augmented by the dialectic loss of intervocalic f (53). 
An exhaustive treatment of their history in the several dialects 
would require not merely that each of the numerous combinations 
should be considered by itself, but that further distinctions should 
be made according to the character of the consonant which was lost, 
that of the sound which preceded the combination, the accent, the 
number of syllables in the word, etc. See 45. Only some of the 
most important facts can be stated here. 

a or d + vowel 

41. 1. a + e, e (spurious et), or r?. Attic-Ionic a, but elsewhere 
77, at least in West Greek and Boeotian. Similarly di or tji from 
a + et, -qi. Examples are forms of verbs in -a<o, as Att.-Ion. vi/care, 
viKciv, etc., which have 77 in West Greek and Boeotian, e.g. Cret., 
Arg. viKrjv, Lac. evUe, Ehod. dotvfJTai, Meg. ^oiT-qTas, Corcyr. 
Ttfiijv, Locr. (TvXiv, Delph. crvXrjv, Boeot. <^variTe (Ar.), etc. 

a. In Lesbian, Thessalian, and Arcado-Cyprian there are no such forms 
■with 77, but also no certain examples of d from ae, since the contract verbs 
in these dialects show other types of inflection (see 157, 159). But rj from 
o£ in crasis is Lesbian, Thessalian, and Arcadian, as well as West Greek 
and Boeotian. See 94.6. So far as we know, d from ae is Attic-Ionic only. 

2. a -1- o or (B. When contracted, the result is ta in all dialects. 
So regularly in forms of verbs in -d<o, as Att. nfi&fj.ev, nfiSivTi, 
Meg. (SeHnus) WKo/ne?, vlkovti, Locr. avKovra, Boeot. o-ouXwi/Te?, 
Lac. he^ovTi (subj.), ivhe^6hai<; (^/3wo-at9 from •^/SatocraK), but also, 
rarely, uncontracted as Boeot. laovrv;, Locr. aireXdovTai. Of. also 
Heracl. rerpapov, group of four boundary-stoties, from *T€Tpa-opov, 
irafi&'xp'; (7rayi«»;^;ecB) from *7ra/Ma-o'x,o<;. ao from apo is uncon- 
tracted in Boeotian (as in Homer), but in most dialects yields co, 
as (^w? from <f}do<! {*<^aFo<;, cf. Hesych. (pavo^opa), Boeot. KaWt- 
^dcov etc., 'A7Xft)- from ajXao- (*dj\aF0-), Boeot. 'AjXaoSeopof 
etc. ('A^Xao- occasionaEy elsewhere), am, aw-, Sco-, from o-a/r 0? (cf. 
Cypr. lapoKXefei}), Boeot. ^dwv, lavKparei'!, l.avyevei'i, etc. (av 
from ao is otherwise unknown in. Boeotian and is here perhaps 


due to the influence of a *'S.avo<i like Cret. f^avoi etc., 35 a). Arc. 
2aKjoenj9 etc. have 2a- (not 2a-), abstracted from Idcov etc. 

3. d -t- €. Attic-Ionic i), elsewhere d. Att.-Ion. ■^\to? (Horn. 
^eXto?) from d/re'Xto? (Cret. gloss d/Se'Xto?), ae'Xto? in Kndar etc., 
Dor. d\to?, Lesb. dXto?. 

■i. d+ o or 0). Attic-Ionic eta or w, elsewhere d or uncontracted. 
In Attic-Ionic first rjo, ijm (cf. 8), often preserved in Homer, 
whence em (with shortening of the first vowel, and, in the case 
of 7)0, lengthening of the second; cf. 43), which often has the 
value of one syllable, and which may be further contracted to <» 
(in Ionic mostly after vowels, cf. 45.2 ; in Attic not so restricted, 
but the conditions are comphcated and not whoUy clear). In 
the other dialects the uncontracted forms are most general in 

Gen. sg. masc. d-stems. Ion. -ew, -a> (also -jjo in no. 6), from

in Thessalian), Are.-Cypr. -dv (22), Lesb., Thess., West Greek -d. 

Att.-Ion. ew? (Hom. e!o?,i.e. 1909) from *d/ro? (Skt. ydt'ai), Lesb.,

a. In Ionic, beside usual eo), there are some examples of eo or tv (cf . 33), 
as Oeopos, Oevpoi (Paros, Thasos), gen. sg. -ev (Erythrae etc.). 

b. In Ionic some of the older forms with unshortened r], as in Homer, 
are employed also by later writers, as vrjos, Xr/os- So ^<os in Herodotus and 
in an inscription of Oropus (no. 14). 

o. In Thessalian there are some examples of o, ou (from co, 23), where 
we expect a, as gen. pi. irpo^evvutw, Toij-^ltovv, Oeovpoi, TloTaSovn, hvXopi- 
ovTos (cf. ik^wpoi, iXcopos). But the first three are probably kolvt] forms 
with dialectic coloring (for such hybrids, see 280), TloraSowi is a hypo- 
coristic in -mv, and hvXopiovros from vXio- beside vXd- (see 167). 

£ + vowel 

42. 1. 6 + o. In general Attic rj, elsewhere uncontracted ea or 
la (9), as ace. pi. Att. errj, elsewhere (f)eTea, (F)eTia. But occa- 
sionally rj in other dialects, as Ion. dvrj (no. 8 ; fifth century) 
beside usual erea etc. (cf. 45.2), Ehod. ace. sg. XeioXr] (no. 93 ; sixth 
century), Lac. ace. sg. ©to/cXe (sixth century), besides later exam- 
ples (e.g. Lac. KXeoje'vj], Heracl. f er??, Ehod. err], Delph. ivSoyevfj), 
some of which may be due to koiv-^ influence. 

Even ea from efu, which is uncontracted in Attic, sometimes 
becomes ?? in West Greek dialects, as Delph. ivvrj = ivve'a, Ther. 
^fiia-Tj = r)fiia-ea, K\r]y6pa<i = KXeayopav, Ehod. 'Ayrjva^ = 'Aye- 
ava^. Dor. k/jj}? (Theocr. etc.) = Kpea<;, rjp (Alcman etc.) = eap, 
Sicil. (Acrae) j)priTiov = j>pedTLov (cf. <^/}7/ti CaUim.). Cf. also Dor. 
^acyiXri (43, 111.3). 

2. e + a. Proper names in -eas, as Ti/^ea?, A'^fiea'i, usually 
remain uncontracted in Attic (Ep/jirj<s is the Ionic form) and most 
dialects, though in late times partly replaced by -a?, as Arjfia';, 
Aafid^. But -^s regularly in Ionic (from -«??), as At?/^^?, 'ATreX- 
\^9, and sometimes elsewhere, as Ehod. 'Apia-Trj<}, Ther. KuS/o^?, 
®a(p)prj<s (archaic). Cf. Ehod. XaXKrj from XaXxed. All the cer- 
tain examples of Dor. r] from ed are from the islands (Syrac. TvKrj 

is doubtful), and hence are possibly due to — very early lonio 

influence ; but not necessarily so, cf. Dor. rj from ea, above. 


3. e + e. Eegularly contracted to e (et) or 97 (see 25), as Att. 
rpets, Ther. rp?}?, from *T/)e'tes (Skt. trayas). But uncontracted 
forms also occur, as Cret. rpee<s, Spofiee<i, TrXies (9.4), Boeot. fiKa- 
Tff 6Tte9. See 45.5. 

4. e + et, rji, or 7/. Eegularly contracted to et, -qi, rj, as ^tXet, 
^ikrii, (f>iXfJTai. Uncontracted forms, like Locr. SoKeii, av^opeei, 
Delph. aSiKer), Boeot. tei, SoKiei (9, 16), are rare. See 45.5. But 
.forms like Ser/i, SerjTai, (from efr], see 45.1) are usually uncontracted. 
Names in -K\er)<; occur in some dialects, though most have only 
-«\9j?. See 108.1 a. 

5. e + o. The contraction to 6 (ou), as in yevovi from *<yeve<To^, 
<j>i\ovfj^v from *^t\eto/iei' (but ijSeo? etc., see 45.1), is Attic only. 
Most dialects have eo or to (9), as yeveo^ i-''°^)> (f>i''Xeofiev (-lofiev). 

In Ionic eo often has the value of one syllable in poetry, and 
this diphthongal pronunciation came to be represented by ev (cf. 
eo = original ev, 33). This spelling, though found in our texts 
of earKer authors (sometimes even in Homer, as fiev, <f>i\evvTa<;), 
does not appear in inscriptions until the fourth century B.C. From 
Ionic, eu spread to the Doric islands, and from the third century 
on is frequent in Ehodes, Cos, Thera, etc. At this time it is also 
found in continental Greece, as at Megara, Delphi, etc. 

a. Boeotian has some examples of iv, lov, beside 10 (both original and 
from £o), but mostly after dentals, where it was supported by the prevalence 
of the spelling ton = v (24). Thus Nfu/Ae6'nos, viov/jLeivLrj, ®ioi>Tt/u,v, AtovKXeis, 
but once also 'BiovTrj. 

b. Heraclean has to) = eo before a single consonant, as ifnerpiaiijiis, iierpua- 
IXjoioa. (but Sed/xcva from £fo). 

c. Contraction to u) is found in certain parts of Crete (see 273) before a 
single consonant, as ei)(apuTTu)iJi,e's (but koct/xovtcs, see d). Cf. also €^aipS)v- 
T£s in an inscription of Phaselis. 

d. For £0 we sometimes find simply e or o. So in Megarian proper names 
compounded of 6e6i, in which, nearly always, 0e- appears before a single 
consonant, ®o- before two, e.g. ©c'Sfapos, OtyEiTos, ®£ti^os, but ©oKptVr/s, 
®0KA,£t8as, ®6yv€LT<K. Such forms in ®£-, ®o- occur elsewhere, but are com- 
mon only in Megarian. Other examples of o from co (so-called hyphaere- 
sis, cf. 44.4) are Ion. op-r^, voo-o-ds, from iopn^, v£o<r<rds, Cret. (Hierapytna 
etc.) Koa-p^vTC'S! KaroitKovTW, ETreo-TOTOv, Delph. miovTOiv (but also Troteovra, 


OoKovTuiv), Heracl. TroLWTacrcn, e^eiroiov, Mess. Trotovn, Arc. ttXos from 
*7rAeos (113.2). 

6. e + ft) or Of. In Attic regularly contracted, as 4>t\a>vn, <f)i\ol 
(but -^Bemv etc., see 45.1). In other dialects regularly uncontracted 
em, eoi, or to), loi (9), but sometimes ft), ot after a vowel (see 54.2). 
Ion. elSecoaiv but ttoioxtlv, avcoOeoirj but iroiot, Lesb. avaredeeoai, 
Delph. ivKokeoi, evSoKecovTL but iroimvri, Locr. eoi'Tt, irpo^evioi, El.

■t\ + vowel 

43. In the declension of nouns in -eu? the 17 of the stem is re- 
tained, as in Homer, in Lesbian, Thessalian, Boeotian, Elean, and 
Cyprian (a few examples also in early Ehodian and Coan), but is 
shortened in the rnajority of dialects (/SacrtXeo? etc.), and in Attic 
this is accompanied by lengthening of the second vowel, if o or a 
(/3oo-t\e'ft)?, /3ao-t\e'a). See 111. This "quantitative metathesis" 
seen in Attic is in many other words Ionic also (as usually from 
Tjo = do, 41.4), e.g. iXeft)? (Herodas — Hdt. t\eft)? or i\eo? ?) from 
tX7?o? (49.5), xpe'<"f^"'i' (161.2 a), TroXeft)? (109.2), Mil. t'epea)? (111.5), 
also re'Xeft)? (Herodas, and, borrowed from Ionic, in Coan) = Cret. 
tcXjjo?, though the usual Ionic form is reXeto?, re'Xeo?. 

Cf. also the subjunctives with tj retained in Horn. OrjOfiev {OeCo- 
fiev), Boeot. KovpovOeCei, etc., but shortened in most dialects, as Ion. 
detofiev (Att. 6a)fiev), Cret. iv6icofiev, etc. See 151.2. 

Contraction of rja to tj (but probably through ea, cf. 42.1) is seen 
in Eub. 3 pi. elprjrat from *elpriaTai (cf. Hom. fie^Xijarai), elpearat 
(Hdt.), and in ^aaiXfj etc. of Delphian and most Doric dialects 

+ vowel 

44. 1. o + a. When contracted, the result is o) in all dialects 
(cf. ft) from a + o, 41.2), e.g. Att. ijSt'ft), Heracl. /teto) from -o{(7)a, 
Tt/ift)i/a|, 'iTTTTwm^, etc. in "West as well as East Greek dialects, 


from -o-{f)ava^ (for Ehod. Ti/jLcival see 167). Cf. also co in crasis, 
as Corinth, rcoyadov = to ayaOov etc. (94). 

2. + a. Usually uncontracted (Att. ori), but in Ionic regularly 
o), in other dialects sometimes a, e.g. Eliod. ^oddeco, Cret. ^oddim, 
Aetol. /SodSoeo), Att. fior)9ea), but Ion. /Sw^e'w, Lesb. ^ddoeco, Att. 
^orjBpo/Mov, but Coan, Ehod. l3dBp6fj,io^. For Ionic <» from 077, no 
matter whether ?? is from a or original ?y, cf. also oySm (once) = 
078o'j;t, and oyBtoKOvra from ovSoT^Kovra (with original ??), and 
Hdt. PSiaai, v&erai, aX\oyvd)(Ta<;. 

a. In the termination of jSodflds, /Sor/^os beside ^00.660%, /3(yqd6oi, whence 
also fiodOim, fio-rfiim beside Lesb. ^aOoiio, Aetol. /Sod^octo, hj-phaeresis has 
taken place. See i. 

3. + 0. Eegularly contracted to 9 (on) or w (see 25), as gen. 
Sg. -ov or -co from -oto (106.1). 

4. + e. '\^^len contracted, the result is the same as from + 
(3), e.g. Att. eXctTTOu? (nom. pi., from -o(o-)e?) but Lac. eXao-o-o)?, 
Att. BTjfiiovpyo^ (Ep. Brjfitoepyo^) etc., but Boeot. Xeirmpyo';, Heracl. 
afji.7re\at)pyiK6<;, Att. \ovTp6v (Hom. Xoerpov), but Heracl. Xmrripiov. 
So Heracl. ■7rpaiyyvo<s from *'7rpoeyyvo';. Cf. also the crasis in Att. 
toStto?, Lesb. (ovtavTo<;, etc. (94.2). But we also find uncontracted 
oe, mainly from ofe, and, before two consonants, sometimes o 
(" hyphaeresis," cf. 42.5 d), e.g. Lesb. ofiovoevre;, Xoeerad/jbevo's, 
MaXoevTi, Arc. 'Eivoevri, Locr. 'OTro'efTt and in the same inscrip- 
tion '07rovTiov<i (see 45.4), Meg. "EeXivoevri but "Eekivovrioi, Cret. 
BoXo'ez'Ta, BoXoei'Ttwi/, later 'OXoVrt, 'OXoi'Tt'ot?. So beside Att. 
Sij/iiovpyo^, Ep. SijiJ-ioepyo^, and Saiiiepy6<; (with ehsion, after the 
analogy of compounds with original initial vowel in second mem- 
ber, cf . <j>tkepy6<s) at Nisyrus and Astypalaea, the form of most dia- 
lects is BriiMopy6<! (Ion.), Sap.iopy6<i (attested for Arc, Argol., Boeot., 
Cnid., Cret., Delph., El., Locr., Meg., Mess.). So Ion. dXopyo^ in 
Teos and Samos. 

45. Notes to 41-44. Some of the factors which help to account 
for divergence in the treatment of the same combination of vowels 
in the same dialect may be understood from the following. 


1. A combination which arises by the loss of f, being of later origin than 
that arising from the loss of t or tr, may remain imcontracted, or be con- 
tracted only later. So Att. TrXeo/nei/, ijSeos, ijSax, ij8e<i)i', in contrast to ^t\oS- 
/t£V, yei/ovs, yevr\, yeiimi, Locr. 'OTrdevrt, later 'Oirmnm. 

2. A combination which is otherwise uncontracted may be contracted 
after a vowel, Att. ySao-tXems but aXtfis, Ion. MeyafSaTew but Uavafi-vu} (-ai 
sometimes after consonants also, but not usually), erm, ereWbut Ovrj, 0vS)v, 
aviodfOLri but iroioi. El. Sokcoi but irounro etc. (see 42.6). 

3. A combination which is otherwise contracted may remain uncon- 
tracted in dissyllabic words, Att. ircos, Bioi, £,iat, and likewise, though be- 
longing also under 1, Att. veos, Dor. vd6%, Aads. Such words may be 
contracted when forming the first member of compounds, as Att. ©ovrtfios, 
vovfirivia, Dor. vaKopoi, Ado-flei/jys. Cf . also Meg. ©eSwpos, ©OKpivrp- Perhaps 
these forms, as regards their origin, belong under 4. 

4. The position of the accent on a following syllable is sometimes a 
factor. So Locr. 'Ottoo/tl (later 'OttovvtC) but 'Oirovrtotis, and perhaps all 
cases of " hyphaeresis " (42.5 rf, 44.4) originated in like conditions, though 
other factors also must be involved in part, and the whole phenomenon is 
still not wholly clear. 

The article, as proclitic, is often the first form to show contraction. 
Cf. Boeot. Tov /jLoxraoiv, Thess. rav Koivaow (Crannon ; elsewhere -ai' in 
nouns also), Eub. tZv 8/oa;^/xe<ov. Here belongs probably Dor. as in con- 
trast to vdds. 

5. The analogical influence of grammatically related forms in which the 
vowel, either of stem or ending, is not subject to contraction often counter- 
acts the normal phonetic development. So Cret. rpees etc. with -cs after 
forms like TrdSes, Ion. ^axrikio? etc. (not -ews) after ttoSos etc., Locr. Sokeci 
etc. after SoKm/xcv etc. 

Assimilation of Vowels 

46. The assimilation of vowels is comparatively rare in Greek, 
and not characteristic of any particular dialect. Here may be men- 
tioned 'Opxofievo'i from '^pxo/J^evo';, the regular native form of the 
name of both the Boeotian and the Arcadian town, Tpo<f)ol)vio<s from 
Tpe(pcovio<;, name of the Boeotian local hero, Thess. Fe/ce'Sa/^o? = 
Boeot. F/ie«aSa/io?, Delph. ^avareik beside ^avorev^. For exam- 
ples of I and V, see 20. For Boeot. rpeireSSa, see 18. For Ilocrot- 
Sdv, 'AirSWmv, o^oXo'?, in which assimdlation is a possible but 
pot necessarj^ assumption, see 49.1,3, 


Epenthetic Vowels 

47. Lesb. (f>aitii (from <l>afii), (\>al(7i, yeXaifJn, etc. in Sappho and 
grammarians, but not found in inscriptions. Cf. Lesb. alfiia-emv 
etc. (17). Por epentliesis in the case of origiaal vi, pi, \i, see 74 a,b. 

Anaptyctic Vowels 

48. 6/3So/tos and e^Se/*o? (114.7) from *e^Sij.o-, *eTrT fio-. Other 
examples are of only exceptional occurrence, as Att. 'E/»e/*^? = 
'E/3/X77?, El. l-aXa/xo vd = "EaXfitovr], Thess. 'Aa-KaXairio^. ireXedpov 
= irXeOpov, in Cretan, Delphian, etc., as in Homer, is perhaps an 
inherited by-form. 


49. In the system of inherited vowel-gradation the dialects gen- 
erally agree in the grade shown by corresponding forms ; e.g. Xeiirco, 
XeXoi-rra, eXi-Trov, in all dialects alike. But there are some examples 
of dialectic differences, of which the following may be mentioned.^ 

1. Series, et, oi, i {Xeiira>, XeXoiira, eXtTroj'). Cret. hUvvfii (trpo- 
hiKWTi) = Att. SeiKWfii (cf. hiKT] etc.). Ion. SeKw/M is perhaps due 
to contamination of SeiK- and Slk-. Lesb. oeiyw (*6feiy-) = Att. 
olyo) (*6fiy-). ffveiKa and fjviKa in various dialects (144 a). Yloau- 
Sajv, HoTeihdv, etc. (41.4) with et (JloTihdv very rare), but usually 
I in derivatives, as Att. noo-i'Seto?, Ion. Iloo-tSjjto?, Boeot. Hoti- 
hdixo'i, Carpath. TioTi^atov (but the famous Potidaea was nofet- 
haia), also oi (assimilation?) in Arc. Iloo-otSai', Lac. noAotSai/, 
TlofioiSaia, and Lesb. (?) Il]oToiSavi from Pergamum. 

2. Series ep, op, ap or pa (Be'pKOfiai, SeBopKu, eSpuKov). reWepe?, 
rerope;, renape;, etc. (114.4). Ion., Lesb., Cret., Mess., Epid., Coan 
eptrifv, but Att. appriv, Arc. appevrepov, Lac. apari<s, Tlier. dptrr^v (also 
Ionic and Coan beside epa-qv). Cf. also El. pdppevop (from a by- 
form with initial f ; cf. Skt. vrsan- beside Avest. arsan-), later ipae- 
vairepo^ (Koivrj influence, see also 80). depa-ov = 6dpao<i in Aeolic 

1 Some cases where the variation is quite possibly not inherited, but vhioU 
fall into the same system, are included for convenience, 


(gram. ; Lesb. Oepa-eia in Theocritus), and in proper names most 
frequently ia Lesbian, Thessalian, Boeotian, and Arcadian, as Lesb. 
©e/JcrtTTTTo?, Thess. ©e/scrtTa?, Sepaovv, Boeot. ©epadvhpixo'i, Arc. 
@epcria<;, etc. /c/jeVo? = Kparo^ in Aeolic (gram.), but in proper 
names characteristic of Arcado-Cyprian, as TifioKpeTr]^, StB/c/jeV?;?, 
etc. Ion. Kpeaacov (in Kpeiaamv, Kpeirrcov, the ei is not original), 
but Cret. KcipTwv (cf. /caprepo^, KpaTep6<;). Cret. Tpdirco = rpeirco, as 
sometimes in Herodotus, Cret. rpd^co = Tpecfxo, as in Pindar etc., 
Delph. a'7ro(TTpd'\]rai = airoarps-^aL. East Ionic a'yepa-t,<; assembly 
(ajeipco, ayopd), "West Ion. dyappK (Naples), Arc. Travdyopai'; (see 5) 
= 7ravi]yvpt,<; (with obscure u). For iepo^, iap6<;, ipo<;, see 13.1. For 
7/3o^ev?, aTpoT6<;, etc., see 5. 

a. The weak grade varies between ap and pa, as in Horn. KpaTos and 
KopTos, Kpanpoi and KapTcpo^, etc. So Cret. KapTtrs, KapTamcK, Kaprcpos, 
KtipTiov, likewise o-TapTos = o-rpaTos, Arc, Cypr., Corcyr., El. SapyQw., Cret. 
SapKva = Spa^fii?, Epid. <j>a.p)(/ia, <j>a.p^K = t^paypa, *<j>pdii'S, Boeot. werpa- 
Tos (Horn. T€TpaTos) = Terapros, Lesb. dp,/3p[o]T»;v (6) = apapreiv- This 
variation is in part due to metathesis, and clearly so in Cretan, which has 
op uniformly, as it also has TropTi = ■n-pofri. See 70.1. 

■ 3. Series e\, ok, oK or Xa (crreXXto, utoXo?, icrrdXrjv). Arc. 
SeXXm = /SaXXo) (cf. /Se'Xos etc.). Arc, Cret., Delph., Epid. oSeXo'?, 
Boeot. 6/3eXo'? (rarely early Attic), Thess. o/3eXXo'? (89.3) = o/SoXo? 
(assimilation ?). West Greek SeiXo/iat, 87jXo/, Boeot. ^eiXofiai, 
Thess. ^eXXo/jLai, all from a grade in eX, = ^ovXofiai. See 75. 
Cypr. SaXro? = SeXro? (but this is a Semitic loanword). Coan 
eVeXoi', Lesb. eraXov, yearling (cf. Lat. vitulus). Cret, Corinth., 
Lac, Pamphyl. 'ATreXXwi' = ^AiroXXwv (o due to assimilation ?), 
Thess. "AttXowi' with weak grade ttX. 

4. Series ez^ (e/i), o;^ (o/i), o or av (ap,) {reivm from *T€i'6a), t6vo<s, 
TUTO'i). Ion., Coan, Heracl. rdp^vm = Tep,v<o, with a/it from erafiov. 
For f ^Kart = eUoa-i, etc., see 116 a. For participles with ar beside 
evr and ovt, as eacrcra, iarra = ovaa, evrei = ovre^, see 163.8. 

5. Series ??, «», a (p'^yvvp.i, eppcoya, ippdyrjv). iXrjo'; (Lac. AtXe/ro?), 
whence Att.-Ion. iXeca?, Cret. ?Xeo?, but Arc. iXao<;, as in Homer 


etc. For Heracl. ippriyela = iapmyela, Dor. etB«a = etKa, see 146.4. 
eyKTrjo-K in Attic-Ionic, also in Lesbian and various West Greek 
dialects (though the examples are late and so possibly due to koiv^ 
influence), but ey/crao-t? in Thessalian (also eVrao-t?), Corcyraean, 
Epirotan, etc. 

a. Corcyr., Meg. IfLiraa-K, Boeot. lirTrao-ts, Arc. ivTratrts contain a differ- 
ent root ira-, like va/m = Ki^fm. See 69.4. ■n-a./jia and related forms, fre- 
quent in literary Doric, were employed in preference to ktyjim etc. in most, 
perhaps all, the dialects except Attic-Ionic. Cf., besides I/xtoo-is etc., Cret. 
wa/ia, iraoras, owner, ireTrdTai perf. sub]., iratrcTat aor. subj., Arg. 7ra/«i, 
Heracl. ■/rafuoyfei, Locr. i^eTrafiiov, Trajuaroc^ayertrTai, El. ireiraxTTo, Boeot. 
TnrdiMTa, Cypr. UaminrtK, etc. 


50. In Attic-Ionic the f was lost at a very early period. In 
East Ionic there is no trace of it even in the earliest inscriptions ; 
it is very rare in Central and West Ionic ; and in Attic the only 
evidence of its existence is its occasional use to express the glide 
sound before v, as apvrdp (32). In Thera, too, it is absent from 
the earliest inscriptions (seventh century B.O.) ; likewise at Ehodes, 
Cos, etc., though here early material' is scanty. In Lesbian it 
existed, initially at least, in the time of Alcaeus and Sappho, but 
is ];iot found in inscriptions, of which, however, none of any extent 
is earlier than the fourth century. 

But in most dialects it is of frequent occurrence initially, where 
it survives till the fourth century or later, in Cretan and Boeotian 
till the second. Between vowels it occurs in the earliest inscrip- 
tions of many dialects, after consonants in several, and before 
consonants in a very few. 

a. In some cases the disappearance of p from inscriptions is due to KOLvq 
influence rather than to an organic loss of the sound within the dialect. So 
evidently in Laconian, as shown not only by its reappearance in the spell- 
ing /3 (51), but by its survival in some words in Tzakonian, the modem 
representative of Laconian, e.g. ^awe (vanne), lamb (papv-^. 


b. Even where there is no reason to doubt the actual loss of the sound, 
the spelling, ^s is natural in such cases, only gradually adapted itself to the 
pronunciation, and often there is an interval of considerable length in 'which 
the older spelling with p and the later spelling without p occur promiscu- 
ously, even in the same inscription. In the Heraclean Tables the presence 
or omission of initial p is constant for certain words, e.g. always p in pe^, 
pUari and derivatives, also percK, piSios, iypr/X-qdiiovTi, but oikik, Ipydtp/juic, 
AexacTTos, itros and hicros, etc. 

51. /3 for f . /^ is represented by /3, which we must understand 
in its later value of a spirant (Engl, v), in numerous glosses and 
in the later inscriptions of several dialects. So frequently in 
Laconian from the fourth century B.C. to the second century A.D., 
e.g. /Si'Seot, ^iSvoi, title of officials (ftS-), Bcopde'a beside Feopdea 
(cf. nos. 70-73) = 'Op6ia, Trpo^enrdha'; =:'7rpopenrdaa<!, StaySeVij? = 
SiapeTr]<s, (o^d from *copd, etc. ; and in Cretan, e. g. Bo'/a^to?, ^oXoevra, 
^epSrji, ^e/cdrepoi, hia^enrdixevo's, vtro/SoiKoi, etc. Cf. also Arg. 
'Bopdajopa^, Tivp^aXicav = older TlvpfaXiov, Corcyr. op^o<; = earlier 
h6ppQ<;, El. ^oiKLup = poiKia<; (no. 61, in the stereotyped phrase 
jap Koi ^oiKiap, otherwise p lost). Eor initial /3/3 = pp, see 55. 

a. Conversely, p is used in place of /S in afwipd = dfioipd of an early Co- 
rinthian inscription. The name of the Cretan town Fa^os was sometimes 
represented by 'Oo^os, as Lat. -Nerva by Ncpoa. 

52. p initially before a vowel. Examples are numerous in in- 
scriptions of most dialects, e.g. peTO<; (cf. Lat. vetus) in eleven dia- 
lects, polKo<; (cf. Lat. vlcus) in twelve dialects, pUari (cf. Lat. 
mginti) in eight dialects, /ra'mf in ten dialects, further, in various 
dialects, f"'PV^,i F"'°'TO'i, /^eVo?, penr-, fepyov, p^ppco, piBio<i, pi(TO<s, 
potvo<s, and many others (see also a, h, c), especially in proper names. 

a. In several dialects which otherwise preserve p it is lost before o and 
0) (but not before ot), as in Homer, e.g. in Gortynian forms of opao), oii/ij, 
i>6iu>, etc. without p beside piKwn, piKoxTTOi, poiKetk, etc. (p6v, povhy anal- 
ogy of pa, piv, etc.). But the precise dialectic scope of this phenomenon is 
not yet determined, and po is by no means unknown, e.g. Arc. po(t)XiKoa-i 
(no. 16, fifth century; in no. 17, fourth century, 6<^A.ei' beside paarov, piKo.- 
g-Tov, etc.), Fop6a<7(a, Cret. Bdpftos, Lac. Btupdia, etc. (see 51). 


6. Initial (rp yields hp, occasionally written ph (cf. Eng. which) but 
usually simply p, wliich, however, was pronounced as hp (or a sui-d p), as 
shown by the fact that after the loss of p such words have the spiritus 
asper. Thus Boeot. FAe/ca-&£/ioe, Thess. FcKc-SaiiAos, Cret., Locr., Delph., 
El., Arc. pnauTTfK, later cKacrTos. In some dialects this p Vas lost earlier 
than p in general, e.g. in Boeotian, where If (from pi^, i.e. phii, from 
*sueks) and iKacrros are frequent in inscriptions which otherwise have ini- 
tial p, as piKacrnj kcu. Iktu) (no. 43.8). 

c. There are also some words with original initial p, not coming from 
ap, which have ' in their later forms, e.g. Att. lo-Tcop, lo-Topui (cf. Boeot. 
pumap, from piS-, Lat. vid-), hw/u, cx/jia (cf. Cret. prjfua, Lat. ves-tis), Iotte- 
pos (cf. Locr. psoTrdptos, Lat. vesper), eKiav (cf. Locr. pefovrai, Skt. vaf), 
oXuTKOjLuu (cf. Thess. paX((T<TKeTaLi, Goth, tvilwan). The explanation, as in 
some other cases of secondary ', in which p is not involved, is uncertain, 
but the following a and analogical influence are the chief factors. 

53. Intervocalic p. This was lost sooner than initial p, hence is 
found in fewer dialects, and in most of these only in the earhest 
inscriptions. Often we find forms with and without p from the 
same period or the same inscription, showing that it was either 
weakly sounded, or wholly lost in pronunciation and retained only 
in the spelling. This inconstancy is much greater than in the 
case of initial p. The spelling with p often persists in proper 
names, and sometimes in certain conventional or solemn expres- 
sions, longer than elsewhere. 

Examples are most frequent in Cyprian, where it appears almost 
uniformly except in some later inscriptions, e.g. alpei, ot/ro?, p6po<;, 
Sopevai, /Sao-tXe/ro9, etc. (hut always 7rat9, TratSo'?, with loss of p). 
Eub. 'AyaffiXepo with p in the proper name beside iiroiea-ev 
(no. 9). Thess. Adpov, but otherwise lost, as in hvKopeovTO'i, iaoae 
(no. 33). Boeot. liroiipi, eiroipea-e, xa'P^F^Trav, KapvKepio, etc., 
but not found after 450 B.C. except in a late archaistic inscription 
with TpayapvSo'i etc. Phoc. /cXe/ro?, alpei (Crissa ; sixth century). 
Locr. Karaipei (also eVif oiko5, fierapoiKeoi, pepaSeKOTa, but see a) 
beside ttoj?, 'O-n-oevn, Safiiopyov<;. El. [-n-ojipeoi once (also awope- 
Xe'ot, but see a), but usually iroieoi, even in the same inscription, 
fiaaiXde?, etc. Lac. hiXipoi, vapov, Taiapoxo, apdraTai (cf. Lesb. 




aiidra, El. avdarop, elsewhere contracted to drd, drrj, as Cret. dra, 
aTraro?, Locr. dvdT6{<i)), late tJ/Sa (51). Arg. At/rt, Aipovvaio, 
itroCpehe (also irehdpoiKOL, but see a). Corinth. UoreSdfovt beside 
HoreSdvi, AXpa<;, AafoirroXefio?, etc. Corcyr. phopalcri, o-tovo- 
fe(a-)a-av, etc. There are no examples of intervocalic f in even 
the earliest inscriptions of Arcadian (cf. 'iXaov no. 16), or Cretan 
{alei, va6<;, f oi/ceo?, etc.) except in compounds (a). 

a. Even where intervocalic p is regularly lost, it may appear in com- 
pounds or in augmented or reduplicated forms, owing to the influence of 
the simplex or of the forms without augment or reduplication, where p has 
survived as initial, e. g. Cret. irpoptLiraro, epaSe, and late SiajSenrdfjia/os. Hence 
in any dialect such forms are not necessarily evidence of the survival of true 
intervocalic p. 

b. The use of p to indicate the natural glide before or after v (see 32, 
36) is also no evidence for the survival of the inherited intervocalic p. 

54. Postconsonantal p. The combinations vp, pp, \p, and also 
a-p (in some cases ; see /) are preserved in the earliest inscriptions 
of some dialects. The loss of p was accompanied by lengthening 
of the preceding vowel in East Ionic, Central Ionic (in part; 
see a) and Eastern Doric (Crete, Thera, Cos, Ehodes and colonies), 
while in the other dialects, as in Attic, the vowel was not affected.

a. To the lengthening in East Ionic there are possibly some local excep- 
tions, but, in general, forms like ^ci/os, and especially ■n-po^cvK, are due to 
Attic influence. Similarly in Rhodian etc. where ^aj/os has survived. only 
in proper names, and in late Cretan where Trpd^tvos is far more common 
than Trpoliji/os. In Central Ionic the lengthening is attested for Paros and 
Thasos, but it is uncertain how far west this extended. From many of the 
islands, both Ionic and Doric, decisive material is lacking. 

6. Lesb. ^ewos, ewexa, in grammarians and late inscriptions, are probably 
hyper-Aeolio, due to the frequency of w from vi, a-u, etc. (74, 76, 77.1). 
Cf. also lara-oOeotcri in an inscription of 2-14 A. D. For Thess. irpo^ewtoBv 
see 19.8; for Boeot. Aa/io^eivo, 92 a. 

c. Diiierent from oppos etc. is Corinth. Uvppos (cf . Arg. Uvpflai, TJvp- 
foXiov), probably standing for IIvpp^os (from *IIijp(r/ros with early assimi- 
lation of pa before p), whence the IXuppos of most dialects. 

d. An example of p after a mute is Corinth. ApivCa = Auviov. Cf . Horn. 
eSSetcrev for e8pewev. 

e. Tp yields tt or a-a-, with the same distribution as for original kl etc. 
(81), e.g. Att. TiTTapa, Ion. TOTo-epes, etc. (cf. Lat. quattuor, Skt. catmras). 
In West Greek reropes the t, instead of a-cr or tt, is due to the analogy of 
other forms such as xcTpaTos, in which p was expelled between the conso- 
nants. Cf. also ijpA^a-cK from *7jfuTpos (61.6). 

/. The history of ap in pia-pcK etc., probably of secondary origin, is to be 
distinguished from that of original intervocalic a-p, the treatment of which 
is apparently parallel to that of tr/x etc. (76). Thus Lesb. vav<K, Dor. vdos, 
etc. probably come from *va(rpo? (cf. vaita, vacr-crat), which in Lesbian be- 
comes first *vapp<K (like dp-p-e), whence *vavp<K, vaBos (35), elsewhere vapos 
(like a/xe), whence vcids, vecos (41.4). 

55. p before consonants. Corresponding to Att. pijTpa, epprjOrfv, 
etc. (from ppt]- beside pep- in epeoa, cf . Lat. verhum) we have El. ppd- 
rpa (15), Cypr. ppera (70.3) with its denominative pperdco {eppe- 
Taaarv, also spelled evpperdcraTv indicating an anticipation of the 
p. Cf. a and 35. So also Kevevpov from Kevepov), Arg. peppejMeva, 
appereue (with prothetic a), later apijreve, was spokesman, presided. 
El. apXaveo'i, wholly (cf. Hesych. aXaveax; • oXoa-'x^epo)';, also aWa- 
VTj? • aa<paX'i]<; and aXavi'i ■ aXr]6e<;), is from a-pXa-, and related to 
aeXkij<; (a-peX-), aoW.i]'; (a-pa\- with Aeolic o, cf. 5), aXjj?, Dor., 
Delph. aXia, assembly, Ion. (Hdt.) aXir} (also from apaX-, with Ion. 
d from apa as ia dTtj, avakiaKw). 


FP appears as ^p, indieating a pronunciation vr, in Lesbian 
words quoted by grammarians and in our texts of the Lesbian 
poets (^prJTcop, ^poSov, etc.), though this has become simply p at 
the time of our earliest inscriptions. Cf. also Boeot. Bpavi8a<; beside 

In most dialects p was lost before the time of our earliest in- 
scriptions and we find, as in Attic, initial p, medial pp or p. See a. 

a. In the case of medial pp, which would occur only in compounds and 
augmented or reduplicated forms of words with initial pp, the p unites with 
the preceding vowel to form a diphthong in Lesbian (cf. 35), e.g. evpayrj, 
avpr/KTOs (Herodian) from *i-ppa,yrj, *a-/rp7;KTos (Att. ippdyrj, apprjKro^'), 
Horn. raXavpivoi from *TaA.o-/rptvos. But elsewhere the syllabification of 
the simplex (or form without augment or reduplication) was retained 
(i. e. pp with the following vowel), and later this pp became pp or sometimes 
p, e. g. Arg. pf.pplp.eva., appireve, later dpijTeue. In Attic and most dialects 
augmented and reduplicated forms have pp, as Att. ippridriv (etp-^Ko. is formed 
after the analogy of forms like eiXricjia, 76 b), ippdy-qv, eppmya, Heracl. 
ippyjya., while compounds also usually have pp but sometimes p under the 
continued influence of the simplex, as Att. avapprjOm but also 6.vapyj6a<i, 
Delph. hlpj.pprivwv (from. *-^pI-pp7]v, like ■^p.i-ovo's, cf. Horn, irokv-ppr/v), but 
also h-qiuprp/aw.. Cf . pp and p from a-p, 76 h. The development of medial 
pk was probably parallel (cf. El. d/rXaveos etc., above), though there is no 
example in Lesbian. 

Consonantal i (i) 

56. Original i almost wholly disappeared from Greek in prehis-. 
toric times, giving ' or, rarely, g" initially, as in 6'? (Skt. yas), rjirap 
(Lat. iecur), t.vyov (Skt. yugam), etc., yielding various results iq 
combination with a preceding consonant (71, 81, 82, 84), and being 
dropped between vowels, as in Tpeli from *Tpeie<: (Skt. trayas), etc. 
But between t and a following vowel, as in 'iinrio';, it always 
existed as a natural glide in pronunciation, and in a few dialects 
this is expressed in the spelling. So, by the repetition of i, in 
Pamphylian, as Sad, huapolai, etc., and sometimes elsewhere, as 
early Arg. hd\uo<;, St/eeX/ia?, Ion. (Priene) Auoc^avr;?. Cf. also Arg. 
Kapveiia<!, Ion. T^uot, dmuijv (37.2). In Cyprian a special char- 
acter, which we transcribe j, is generally employed, though not 


uniformly, as in the Idalium bronze (no. 19) regularly before a, 
but not before e or o, e.g. ijaripav but lepifijav, feirija but ei.6v. 

The Spiritus Asper. Psilosis 

57. The spiritus asper generally represents an original a- (59) or 
I (56), but in some words is of secondary, and sometimes obscure, 
origin, e.g. iVTro? (of. Lat. equus; tTTTro? regularly as the second 
part of compounds, ''AX«t7r7ro9,''Ai'Tt7r7ro9, etc., rarely "Ai/^tTTTros), 
^/iet9, a/*e? (cf. Skt. asmdn) with ' after the analogy of vfieh (with 
' from t). The sound was denoted by H (earlier B) until the intro- 
duction of the Ionic H = ??, after which it was generally left un- 
designated.i But see 4.7. 

Psilosis, or the loss of the spiritus asper, is characteristic of East 
Ionic (whence the sign was left free for use as t] ; see 4.6), Lesbian, 
Elean, Cj^rian, and Cretan (i. e. Central Cretan). 

a. Psilosis is shown, not only by the absence of H = A, but by the pres- 
ence of phrases and compounds in which a preceding mute is not changed 
to the aspirate, e.g. East Ion. d.Tr' exao-Tou, abr' ov, KaTawep, El. KaTUTTcdl, 
Cret. Ka.TUTTa.iLa/. But psilosis is no bar to the retention of aspirated mutes 
in phrases and compounds which were formed prior to the loss of the asper. 
For they would be affected, if at all, only by the analogical influence of the 
simplex, as Cret. KaTtoTa/xcv by Hence East Ion. xaSoSos, El. Trofle- 
Ad/xevos, etc. Cf. Mod.Grk. KoBiaTiqiu, dijiov, etc., in spite of the loss of the 
spiritus asper. 

58. Even in those dialects which generally preserve the spiritus 
asper, and which, in distinction from those with psilosis, we may call 
the A-dialects, there are many irregularities, partly ia special words, 

1 In quoting forms from inscriptions, wherever the sign for the spiritus asper 
appears in the original it is transcribed h, to be distinguished from ', which is 
supplied as a purely diacritical sign, like accent marks, and the employment of 
which is, in many special cases, of doubtful propriety. That is, the evidence is 
often insufficient to determine whether the omission of the sign of the asper is 
merely graphic, in which case we should transcribe the form with ', or due to an 
actual loss of the sound, in which case we should transcribe with '. As a work- 
ing rule we employ the lenis in quoting forms without h from inscriptions which 
have the character or are of a period when it was certainly in common use. 


where by-forms evidently existed, partly due to the weak pronun- 
ciation of the sound in general (cf. the variations in Latin speUing). 

a. In several dialects the forms of the article, o, a, etc., appear regu- 
larly or frequently without h, showing that in these proclitic forms it was 
either wholly lost or more weakly sounded than elsewhere. So in Locrian 
(nos. 55, 56) always d, never ho (cf. also k d), feni. d and ha once each; in 
Delphian (no. 51) d as article (A 30, 38, C 19), but demonstrative ho (B 53); 
Thess. KOI = Kol ot (no. 26); d likewise in some early inscriptions of Boeotia, 
Pamphylia, Syracuse, Metapontum, and Sybaris. The same is probably to 
be inferred for Arcadian from the omission of h in the relative, as av = a av 
(nos. 16.14, 17.7), with which compare Boeot. 6s = tos (no. 40) and Delph. 
as (no. 51 A 28) beside usual ho, hoa-n's, etc., though in most dialects the h 
of the relative is uniformly retained. 

b. Other forms which regularly have the spiritus asper, but for which 
by-forms with the lenis are to be recognized, are : fi/i-ipa, but even in Attic 
inscriptions frequently l/tepa. Mess, /car afiepav, Ther. eV dfiepas, Troez. 
Kiirdinpov, Locr. afjiApa. tepds (hiepos, huapo's, in numerous dialects) , but with 
lenis in Ehodian and Argolic, as Rhod. in icpems, Arg. (nos. 76, 
77, with ho etc.), Epid. tapo/x/nm/ioves (no. 83, with Ao/iovoois etc.), Aegin. 
lapwi (beside Aoikos = 6 oucos, xo = ki^' o)- So i-n-' iapeus in the Megarian 
inscription no. 92, in contrast to huapov at Selinus, is probably due to the 
Epidaurian graver. For Mant. lepds, see d. rifj.w (see 57), in Doric dialects 
a/i,€S .(Lac. TToff afii, Heracl. hafj.h), but also d/i€s (Coan' apjiov etc.). 
Thess. d/ti/ie or afifiif ea-TrjKa, but also ta-raKa (cf . lo-TaAxa, for which, vice 
versa, sometimes co-raXKa), as Thess. emfrrdKOVTa (no. 33), Mess. Kareara- 
fitvoi, Amorg. KaTta-Tutarj's. 

c. Several words which regularly have the lenis show secondary forms 
with the asper in various dialects. Thus Iros (from /reVos), but Heracl. 
iraira-htrriptha (beside /tctos), Epid. irevO' err/, and frequently Kaff Iros etc. 
in the koivt^ (cf. Mod.Grk. e<^€Tos), probably after the analogy of ■q/iepa in 
similar phrases. tSios (from /ri&os), but Thess. Kaff I&Smv, and so often in 
late inscriptions of various dialects (really koivj;), probably after Koff tKa- 
<TTov. lo-os (from /riirfos), but Heracl. AtVos beside to-os, and e<^' mttjs in 
the KOLvrj, probably after ofMioi. Locr. Ivre (cf. ta-rt), but Delph. hevTe, after 
as = €a)s. Heracl. Aoktu (also Theran), hoKraKanoi, htwm, Delph., Ther. 
Atrards, all after cTrTd. So probably by a still further extension of the asper 
(e. g. after iweaKaiScKa) Ther. hiKaSi = ctxdSi (no. 107). dxpos, but Heracl. 
haKpoa-KLpm.1, Corcyr. Ad/cpos, and perhaps Delph. haKpodiva (?no. 51 D47). 
Delph. f(j)LopKiw, also frequent in the kolvt^, is a contamination of lirvopKem 


and ec^opiceo), while Delph. icjiaKioiJuu from d/cco/xat is obscure. In Thess. 
avypiw (i<f>a.vypa/dav) = Lesb. aypio) the asper, as well as the v, is probably 
due to contamination with some other word. 

d. Besides such special cases as have been noted in a, h, and c, there are 
in some dialects irregularities which seem to be due to confusion in spell- 
ing consequent upon the asper being weakly sounded or on the verge of 
total disappearance, though even some of these may possibly be due to spe- 
cial causes. Locrian has -irevTopKuiv beside hopKov, 6<tw., 'kttux., Karifofievov, 
vSpiav (A before v in hmro), and, vice versa, once Hottovtiov beside 'Ottovtiol, 
and hdyiv for ayiv (cf . iiriyov). In Arcadian, no. 17 has ipMru beside hiiXuru, 
iJoTcpas, and once hdv for av, and the very early Mantinean inscription, 
no. 16, shows no example of h, though containing not only oiSe (see a). but 
otria, lAaov, and tepos for which hiepoi is fully attested in the other Arcadian 
inscriptions as no. 16 ; and among the brief archaic inscriptions there is a 
notable lack of agreement in this matter. Heraolean has, besides the cases 
mentioned under c, opcK, opL^ot, where we expect hopoi, and hdpvrjO-Ls, hoi- 
a-ovTi, for apvrjcrK, oitrovri. At Epidaurus, no. 83 has always drtpoi not hdrtpoq. 

IT. Loss of Intervocalic a 

59. Original initial s became the spiritus asper in proethnic 
Greek, as in eSo? (Lat. sedeo, Skt. sad-), eiroiiai (Lat. sequor, Skt. 
sac-), etc. At the same time intervocalic s was changed in the 
same way and then lost, as in ^eVeo? (Skt. yawasas, "La-t. generis), 
etc. Nevertheless there are many Greek words with intervocalic 
0-, either retained by analogy as in the aorist, or of secondary origin 
as o" from t (61). 

This Greek intervocalic a was subjected to a similar process, 
namely became h and was later lost, in Laconian, Argohc, Elean, 
and Cyprian. 

1. Laconian. Early iiroiehe, viicdha<;, evhe^ohai<;, TlohoiBavi, 
AvhiTTTTOv, 'E\evhvvia, etc. ; later Tlahi(f)di, Tr/ao/SetTraAa?, vLKda<s, 
'OvaireXrji; (Ovacri-), UeuKKeiSa (lieicri-), /SatXe'o? (/3ao-£X.eo?), 
etc. Cf. also 97 a. Examples of o- omitted are also in Ar. Lys. and 
in glosses. This was a characteristic of Laconian speech from the 
earliest known period, and is faithfully represented in the spelling 
of most of the early inscriptions. But it was felt as a provincial- 
ism and ignored in the spelling of some few early inscriptions 


which were set up outside of Laconia (no. 64, ^Xeidaioi, though 
the retention of o- in this non-Laconian name is natural anyway; 
no. 65, yvea-ioi, e^daovTi), and in the later inscriptions, which 
usually show cr. See 275. 

2. Argohc. From Mycenae, early ^pahcapiSa<; (no. 75, fifth cen- 
tury), late iTToXvcoprje (197 B.C.); from Argos, early ewoCpehe, 'ApKe- 
hC\a<;, \ha^o\hCai, etc., later Safioioi, (Sa/xoaioi), djjavpop (drjcravpov), 
TeXeiTTTTO? (TeXeo-t-), ©pdvWo'; {®paarv-), etc. But forms with fl- 
are also frequent at all periods, e.g. 6eaavp6<;, KaTa6eaLo<; (no. 78, 
fifth century), Kvaiinrov in the same inscription with TeXewrTro?. 
This inconsistency in the spelling, which is even greater than in 
Laconian, has the same explanation. See 1, and 275. 

a. Nearly all the examples are from Argos and vicinity, from which one 
might conclude that the change was specifically Argive, not general Argolic. 
But there are some traces of it at Epidaurus, and the absence of other ex- 
amples may be due to external influence. 

3. Elean. In no. 60 (middle fourth century) aSeaXrcihaie, <f>vya^ 
SevavTi (aor. subj.), beside SafioaicoiJiev, Safioaiaia. In no. 61 (after 
Alexander) iroirjaaa-ai (irof^a-acrffai), iroirjarai (aor. subj.), beside 
avaOeaiop etc. In all the earlier inscriptions intervocalic a- is 

4. Cyprian. (f)pove6i {^povewen), •iroe'xpfievov (Troa-exop-evov), 
also in sentence combination (cf. 97 a), as ku a(v)Tv («a? avri), ra 
vj(epdv (tw ixvpoiv). But generally a is written. 


60. Ehotacism, or change of o- to p, is found in Elean, late 
Laconian, and Eretrian, rarely elsewhere. 

1. Elean. Final ? appears uniformly as p in the later inscrip- 
tions, nos. 60, 61, e.g. rep, aip-arop, oircop, irdXiop. Most of the 
earlier inscriptions show -? and -p side by side without any appar- 
ent system. Ehotacism of intervocalic a is unknown (cf. 59.3). 

a. In the earlier inscriptions p is relatively most frequent in forms of the 
article and the indefinite or the relative pronoun, e.g. roip, rip, op, and 


possibly the rhotacism began in such enclitic and proclitic forms. But even 
here there is great fluctuation in the spelling. 

2. Laconian. Ehotacism of final s is seen only in very late inscrip- 
tions, e.g. viKoap, Bev^iTTTrop, etc., confirmed by numerous glosses. 

3. Eretrian. Eliotacism of intervocalic o- is frequent in inscrip- 
tions of Eretria and Oropus, e.g. Eretr. exovpiv, Ovtopiv, iiriSrjfiew- 
piv, avveXevOepcopavTi, iraipiv, airrjpiv, 'ApTSfitpia, Crop. Srjfiopicov. 
But there are many exceptions, and the use of p is gradually given 
up under Attic influence. Although Plato, Cratylus 434 c, remarks 
that the Eretrians say a-KXrjpoTrjp for <TKXT)p6rr)<i, there is no inscrip- 
tional example of p for final ? except once oirap dv, for which 
see 97 a. 

4. Rhotacism of a- before a voiced consonant is seen in Eretr. 
M//3709 = Mtb-70?, late Cretan (Gortyna) Kopfioi = koctixoi, Thess. 
(Matropolis, Pharsalus) ®e6pSoT09 = ©eoo-Soro?. In most dialects 
a- in this position was pronounced as a sonant (z), and in late times 
often indicated by ^, as ■\jrij<f)i^p,a. 

Change of t to (r 

61. T is changed to a- very frequently before i, and sometimes 
before v. The more precise conditions are uncertain, and the change 
is in part independent of dialectic variation, t being retained in 
some words in all dialects, e.g. avri, and in some words becoming a- 
in all dialects, e.g. most words hke ^outk (Skt. ga-ti-s), crrda-i';, etc. 

But in a considerable class of words there is a distinct dialectic 
distribution of the t- and u-forms, the retention of f being a nota- 
ble characteristic of the West Greek dialects, in which Boeotian 
and ThessaUan also share. 

1. Verb forms with the endings -ti, -vn, as hi^oan, ^epovrt = 
SiBcocn, <f)€povcn (Arc. <f)epovcn, Lesb. ^epoiai). Examples are plenti- 
ful in all the West Greek dialects and Boeotian (-rt, -v6i), and for 
Thessalian are indirectly evidenced by -vOi. See 139.2. 

2. The numerals for 20 and the hundreds, {f)iKaTi = eiKoa-i, 
-Karioi = -KOtrioi (Arc. -Kaaioi). 


3. Some nouns and adjectives in -rt?, -rto?, -ria. Most words of 
this class have o- in all dialects. But ' Apra/jLiTio<; = ' ApreixCcno-i in 
numerous "West Greek dialects, Boeot. EvTprjri'i = 'EvrpTjarig (the 
Aeolic form in Homer), Coan, Delph. iviavno? = iviava-io<;, etc. 

4. iropTi in 'Cretan, TroTt'in all other West Greek dialects, with 
Boeotian and Thessalian, = Att.-Iou., Lesb. tt/jo'?, Arc-Cypr. tto's. 
But Homer has irporC, ttoti, as well as tt/jo'?. See 135.6 a. 

5. IIoTeiSdwv, IloTeiMv, etc. = lioaeiStov, the forms with t being 
attested for numerous West Greek dialects, with Boeotian and 
Thessalian. Lac. UohoiSdv is a relic of the Pre-Doric (Achaean) 
form (cf. Arc. IlocrotSdv), with the Laconian change of a- to h. Tlo- 
aeiSdv in some later Doric inscriptions is probably due to the influ- 
ence of the usual TlocretScov. 

6. TV in Hterary Doric and an inscription of Epidaurus, Boeot. 
Tov = Att.-Ion., Lesb., Arc. av. Cret. [^]/AtTi;-6KT0, Epid. hefilreia, 
but Att.-Ion., Arc. r/fuav;, Lesb. aifuav;, with suffix -tv, beside 
which we find Arc, Delph., Epid., Meg., Thess., late Cret. ijfMo-ao'; 
from *rifUT(:o'i, with suffix -rpo-. 

p. 8,7 

63. In general /3, S, 7 remained simple mediae, but in some dia- 
lects there are indications of their pronunciation as spirants, which 
eventually prevailed even in Attic (cf . Mod.Grk. /3 = », S = " soft " 
th, 7 = guttural spirant). Such are : 

1. The use of /S for f in later Laconian etc. See 51. 

2. The representation of 8 by f in three of the very earliest 
Elean inscriptions, e.g. fe, ^e«:a, ^iicaia, ^((jjviov, ^a/Mopyia, fei^o^, 
though the others have B, following what was the usual spelUng 
elsewhere. Cf. also early Ehod. t6^' = ro'Se (no. 93), and early Arg. 
fia^eie (for a^ see 89.1) = elSeirj. 

3. The occasional omission of 7 or substitution of i, as in Boeot. 
Id), ld)v, (Ar., Corinna) = €701, Arc. eiriBudve {iTndiyydvrj), Pamph. 
p,heid\[av] (ij,eydXr]v), and oXto? (oX/709) in late inscriptions of 
various places. 


4. The occasional representation of 7 by fin Cyprian, as fa (7a), 
a^a96<; (a<yad6<;). 

5. Cret. a-TTopSSdv. See 89.3. 

«!>. e, X 

63. In general (f>, 6, x remained true aspirated mutes, and in 
the earliest type of the alphabet, wliich had a sign for 6 but none 
for ^ or x> these two were represented by ttA and kH, as at Thera, 
or, where a sign for h was not in use, simply by tt and «, as in the 
GortjTiian Law-Code (e.g. Kp6vo<; = xpdvo^, TrvXd = <j)vXij). Spell- 
ings like yeypaTr(f>a, SeSoKxdai are mostly late, an exceptionally 
early example being Delph. XeKxoi (no. 51 D 13 ; dat. sg. of Xexco). 

But the pronunciation as spirants (Engl./, " hard " th, Germ, ch), 
which eventually prevailed even in Attic, may have existed at a 
much earlier period in some dialects. Such a pronunciation of is 
certainly presupposed by Lac. a- = 6 (64), and probably by Cret. 
68 = <t6 etc. (81 a, 85.3). So too en = (t6 in Locrian, Elean, etc. 
(85.1) is most plausibly explained as due to the fact that 6 had 
become a spirant iu other positions, but remained an aspirated mute 
after a and so, in contrast, was denoted by r. A similar explana- 
tion probably holds for some other cases where t is used for 6, as 
Cret. Tvaro? etc. (66), and Cret. IIvtio?, ie. Ilv^to?, the originally 
Delphian epithet of ApoUo, with its hallowed pronunciation re- 
tetined (also sometimes spelled IIoi'Tto? with 01 to denote the pro- 
nunciation of V as ii, Cretan v being u ; see 24). 

64. Laconian a = 0. The use of o- by Aristophanes in the 
Lysistrata to iadicate the sound of the Laconian 6 (and there is 
no good reason to doubt that this belongs to the original text) 
shows that it had become a spirant which would strike the Athe- 
nian ear as cr, even if not yet fully identical with it. The Laconians 
themselves retained the spelling 6 in all the earlier inscriptions, 
but avea-tjKe (avSrjKe) and aio) (0eov) occur in a fourth century 
inscription, and ia very late inscriptions avearjKe, Jiapa-ea (Fop0ca), 
Kaaa-TjpaTopiv beside KaOdrfparopiov, etc. 


Interchange of Surds, Sonants, and Aspirates 

65. Dissimilation and assimilation of aspirates, or transposition 
of the aspiration. The dissimilation seen in Tidrjfu from *6i0r)/ii, 
rpexo} from *dpe'X(o (cf. dpe^ofiai), etc., belongs to the proethnic 
period. But there are some examples of later, dialectic, assimila- 
tion. So Cret. didefievoii = TLde/jLevof, dvxa (i.e. 0v%o) = tvxVj West 
Ion. (Cumae) 0v<f>\6<; = TV(f>X6^, Arc. (f)ap9evo<; = •7rap0evo<; (also in 
sixth century Attic inscriptions), dvadev = rvOrjvai (in part ana- 
logical, 0v(7- as in dvariK etc.), Lac, Epid. deOp.o'i, Locr., El. de0fiiov 
= TeOpLO^, rSfuov, Att. 0ea-fJb6v, 0eafiiov (164.4), Att. (iascr.) ev- 
6av0a = usual Att. ivTav0a. Ion. ev0avra is the more original form 
(from ev0a), whence Att. ivrav0a through transposition of the aspi- 
ration and influence of raCra, Cf. also Eub. ivTOv0a like Toina 
(124). El. ivravTa is from ev0avTa, through influence of Tavra (but 
cf. also 66). Eor transposition cf. also Ion. a')^avTO<; = aKav0o<;, 
Cret. Kav^of = ;\;a\«o'?, Thess. IleT^aXo? from •I'eTToXo'? (68.2). 

66. There are scattered examples of variation between surd and 
aspirate, surd and sonant, etc., especially before a nasal. Locr. 
TBKva = re'xvi], Cret. TuaT6<;, TervaKoi; = OvqTO'i, reOvrjKO'i, Heracl. 
SiaKvovTcov beside Siaypovreov, Eretr. a7roSeiyvva0ai, Ther. ipSeiyvv- 
fjLevo<; to SelKvv/M, Aetol. a'^^vrjKOTa'; beside ayvrj/cw (ayveco = dyco). 
Ion. (Chios) Trprij^^a = TrprjyfJba, Epid. ^dpxP'a = <})pdyfjLa, wdp- 
heixp-a = irapdSeiyfia, probably contain the suffix -a/Ma. Cf. Te'xvr] 
from *Te'KCTvd. (So perhaps Delph., Locr. ix0o<s from *e;^To's, this 
from *e/co--To'?. Cf. early Att. eBox<re etc.) 

In Pamphylian vt becomes regularly {v)B (v not written, 69.2), 
as Tre'Se = TreVre, i^dyoBi = i^dyavn. In Cret. dvTp6iro<i (cf. also 
Pamph. arpoTroiai) = dv0pa)iro^, dvrpfjiov = dvSpeiov, it is uncertain 
whether the preceding p or the following p is the more important 
factor. Locr. (j)piv = Trpiv is obscure. 

El. irda-Kco = ird(Txa> is probably due to the influence of other 
verbs in -o-zcw (but possibly like (tt = (t0, cf. 63). For Att.-Ion. 
hexofxai with analogical x (to Be^ofiai, after ^pexeo to ^pe^co, etc.) 


other dialects (and Ionic in part) have the original SeKo/iai {61 
Att. SaipoS6Ko<:). ovSeK, firiBei<!, are replaced by ovdei-:, fii^dek, with 
6 from B + the spiritus asper of el?, in later Attic and elsewhere. 

It. Very late inscriptions show numerous examples of confusion, not 
confined to any special conditions, as dSeXwos = dSEA.</>ds, <^peo-|8ur£jOos = 
irpio-fivTipiK, Lesb. vwapKOurav = WTrap^ouaav, Lac. 7roiSi;^dv = TratSiKw. 

Interchange of it and ttt 

67. Of the Homeric by-forms of ttoXj? and wo'Xe/ios, ttto'Xis is 
f omid also in Cyprian, rarely in Arcadian and Cretan, and in Thes- 
salian after a vowel, as ol rro\Cap')(oi, ap^cTToXiap')(^evTo<! (tt from 
TTT, 86.2) ; TTTo'Xe/ios is found in Cyprian (gloss) and Cretan (rare), 
and in many dialects as the second member of proper names. 

Interchange of Labials, Dentals, and Gutturals 

68. 1. Those sounds of the parent speech which are called labio- 
velars and are commonly designated as qU, git, gV-h, appear in 
Greek regularly as (1) labials before the back vowels a, o, m, and 
before consonants, (2) dentals before the front vowels t, e, -q, (3) 
gutturals before and after v. Thus ttou, irodev (Lat. quod, cf. Osc. 
pod), oirolo^, but ti? (Lat. quis), re (Lat. que), Cret. oreto?, — 7re/i- 
TTti?, ■n-efiTTTO';, but Trevre (Lat. quitique), — Xvko's (Eng. wolf), yvvq 
(Eng. queen) beside Boeot. ^avd. But before t usually /3, <^, e.g. 
/Sio9 (Lat. vivus), with 8 only in Heracl. ivSeSim/coTa = ifi/Se^ias- 
Kora. Many exceptions are due to leveling between related forms, 
e.g. ^eXo<; after /SaWto, Cypr. ireia-ei, = reiaei after -iroivd, etc. 
Instead of irpea^v;, with analogical /S, several dialects have forms 
with 7, which is regular before v, e.g. Cret. irpeiyv^ etc., Boeot. 
irpKryele^ (see 86.3). Examples of the normal relation are Arc. 
SeXXco = ^dXXco, West Greek ^Xop-ai, (75) = ^ovXofiai, 
Delph. etc. oSeXoi (49.3) = oySoXo? (but if from the rare early Att. 
o/8e\o'9, /8 is analogical, as in o/8eXto-«09. Boeot. 60eX6^, Thess. 
o/3eX\o'? may belong under 2, below). 


2. But it is a notable characteristic of the Aeolic dialects that 
they very frequently show a labial even before a front vowel, 
where the dental is regular elsewhere. Thus Lesb., Thess. Trefiire = 
irevTs, Lesl). irea-avpef (Hesych., of. Horn. ■jriavpe<i), Boeot. TreV- 
ra/ae? = reTTa/se?, Thess. irelirai,, aTnreicrdTOv, Boeot. iroTairoin- 
a-ciTco = relcrai etc., Lesb. TrijXvi (Sappho), Boeot. IletXe-a-T/JOTtSas 
to T7j\€, Thess. /3e'A,Xo/iat, Boeot. ^elXoixai = West Greek SijXofiai, 
heiXofxaL, Lesb. Be'Xc^ot (gloss), Boeot. BeX^oi = Ae\<f>oi, Thess. 
BeXcj)aiov = *AeX(f>aiov, Boeot. ^e^vpa = Cret. 8ecj}vpa, Att. y€(f)vpa 
(y unexplained), Boeot. ©Locffeia-TO^ to 'EpiJ,6-0ea-TO<;, ©eo-rtSas 
{Oea-aaadai), Lesb. 1^77/) (gloss), Thess. irecjieipaKovTe'; = dijp, Tedrjpa- 
/co're? (though this is a case of original ghu not 5'2^A), Boeot. ^er- 
TaXo'?, whence Thess. IleT^aXo? with transposition of the aspiration 
(65) = Att. @eTT(xXo'?, Ion. etc. ©ecro-aXo'?. Yet some words always 
have the dental, e.g. re, rt?, rtytta, the reason for this being obscure. 

3. In Arcado-Cyprian there is evidence that the sound arising 
before a front vowel was not, as elsewhere, identical with the 
ordinary dental, but, at least under certain conditions, was a sibi- 
lant. Thus Cypr. o-t? = Ti? (no. 19), a(=Ti (Hesych.), and Arc. 
<Tt9 = Tts, eicre = etre (for the character transcribed a, see 4.4) in 
an early inscription of Mantinea (no. 16), though all other Arca- 
dian inscriptions have the usual rt? etc. Cf. also the glosses ^epe- 
6pov beside SepeOpov = ^dpadpov, and feXXw beside inscriptional 
hiXXas = ^aXXto, and see note to no. 65 B 2. 

Note. The fact that in Arcadian only the one inscription named shows 
anything but the dental spelling need not indicate that the peculiar pro- 
nunciation was locally restricted. It was probably colloquial throughout 
the dialect, but not usually followed in the spelling, owing to external 
influence. Cf. El. ^= 8 only in the earliest inscriptions (62.2), and see 275. 

4. There are some pronominal forms with « in place of the 
usual TT or t. Thus Ion. kw? = tto)?, KOTepo^:, etc. (but only in 
texts of Ionic authors, inscriptions always showing the usual forms), 
Lesb. oKai = ottj), Thess. k^ = rk, etc. Possibly such forms arose 
in phrases like ov kqx; etc. with regular k after v (above, 1). 


a. Puzzling is Thess. Savxva = 8di>vr, (cf. also Hesych. Savx/nw- €VKav- 
(TTov ^v\ov Sai^wjs). Unless due to contamination with another root (e. g. that 
of &IMO, SESav/xei/oi/, cf. Hesych. ^vOixov Ifnrprja-fiov), there is an anticipa- 
tion of the « element of the consonant, as in Xvkos. 

5. A change of 6 to (f>, that is, doubtless, of spirant th to /, is 
seen in (})€S)v, ^vovre^ = de&v, Ovovte^, of an inscription found at 

Nasals and Liquids 

69. Nasal before consonant. The nasal was always assimilated 
to the character of the following consonant, but was less distinctly 
sounded than in the intervocalic position. With this are con- 
nected the following facts. 

1. The letter v is freely used for the guttural and the labial nasal, 
as well as for the dental, e.g. 'OXuvTrto?, avjti, \av)^dva. 

2. The nasal is omitted in the spelling, occasionally in aU dia- 
lects, and regularly in Cyprian and Pamphyhan. 

3. Complete assimilation to a following mute, though not regu- 
lar in any dialect, sometimes occurred in careless pronunciation, as 
shown by occasional, and mostly late, spellings, e.g. Att. ^n/S/SaX- 
Xeadai, Boeot. 'OXi'7r7ri';;;^7;i'(late Koivij inscription), Delph. "A ^aj8/8o? 
beside usual "A^a/i/3o?.. From Crete, where in general consonant 
assimilation is most extensive (86), there are several examples, as 
•jToinrdv = irofiirdv, acfxpavco — aix<l>dva), and the assimilated form 
was usual in the name of the town Lappa, whose coins show Aair- 
Traimv. In some cases the dissimilative influence of a preceding 
nasal was probably a factor, e.g. Delph. aveKKk-qrwi = aveyK\i]Toa'!, 
iirdvaKKov (papyr.) = eTrdvayieov. Thess. i^^avaxd^ev = i^avayxd- 
^eiv perhaps belongs here rather than under 2, i.e. is to be read 
e^^ava (k) «a(S) Sev. 

4. A special case is Boeot. eWao-t? (uniformly so speUed) = 
efiTrdcri,';. This is from *efj.-Tr7rd(Tt<; (cf. rd ■jnrd/ji.aTa, @i6-'7nra(TTO<;, 
rwo'-TTTrao-TO?), the root being Trird- (with tttt from original ku, 
as in iTTTro?), which is simplified initially to ird-, as in Tra/ia etc. 


a. Assimilation of a nasal to the character of the preceding mute is per- 
haps to be seen in Coan 'Ap«rrm;^i/os = 'ApurToxxfi^CK, and Cret. SapKva = 
Sapx/Jui, SpaxfiT]- Cf. Mod.Grk. IlaTvos from UdrfjuK, Xaxvo'S from AaxA'ds. 

70. Transposition of a liquid, or loss by dissimilation. 

1. Transposition within the same syllable. Cret. iropTi^ -rrpoTi, 
'A-^ophCra = 'A<ppoSiTTj, also Kapro';, a-Tapro';, etc. for which see 
49.2 a. 

2. Transposition between different syllables. Heracl. rpdif)o<!, 
Amorg. Tpd^T) = Td<j)po<;, rdcjjpr], Syrac. Spitjyo'; = hC(j>pQ<i (Hesych.). 

3. Loss by dissimilation. Cypr. f/jera = /5»;T/3a, Epid. /aoTrroi' = 
poTTTpov, dvpcoTov from *6vpaTpov, (^arpia = (ftparpia in various 
dialects (Delphi, Cos, Chios, etc.), vice versa <f}pi]Tapxo^ at Naples. 

71. Cretan v from X. In Cretan the \ was a deep guttural I 
closely resembling u (cf. French autre from alter, etc.), and was so 
written occasionally, e.g. Gortyn. aBev'jnai= aSeX^ai (but usually 
aSeXTTto? etc.), pev/Meva<; = feKfievai, Kav^o'! = %ix\ko'9. There are 
numerous Cretan glosses in Hesychius with v = \, e.g. avao<; = 

a. Cretan t from p in fuurus = paprvi is without parallel, and must be 
due to some kind of dissimilation between the two p's of papTvp-. 

72. VT, v6, from Xr, \d. Several examples of vt = \t are found 
in Peloponnesian Doric and the Sicilian and Italiot colonies, e.g. 
Meg., Mess., Heracl., Syrac. ^ivrav {^iXrav), ^ivria^, etc., Arg. 
MivTcav (MiXtcov), kgvto {xeXro) in Alcman, ^CvTaTO<; {<piXraTO<;) 
in Epicharmus, jSevnaTO'; (/BeXTiaTo? ) in Theocritus. iv6elv (iX- 
delv) occurs in Alcman, Epicharmus, Theocritus, and at Corcyra ; 
also in an Arcadian (Lycosura), a late Delphian, and a late Cretan, 

Double Liquids and Nasals in Lesbian and Thessalian 

73. The combinations treated in 74-76, also 77.1, 79, have in 
part a common history, since they all become double liquids and 
nasals in Lesbian and Thessalian, but in other dialects a single 



liquid or nasal accompanied by lengthening of the preceding vowel 
(if e or 0, to ei, ov, or r), w, according to the dialect ; see 25). 

74. p, V, + 1, when preceded by any other vowel than a or o. 
From *(f>eepiQ,, Lesb. (j^eeppm (gram.), Att. etc. (I>eeipa>, Arc. <j)e^pca. 
From *KpU(o, Lesb. Kpivvco (gram.), Thess. Kpevvco (18), Att. etc. 
Kptvm. From *«TeVtto, Lesb. KTevvm (gram.), Att. etc. KTeivco. 

a. But if a or o precedes, epenthesis takes place, the result being the 
same in all dialects, e. g. xatp<o from *xapi<», fioipa from Vo/ow, /Saivio from 

6. Xi gives XA. in nearly all dialects, e. g. oAXos (Lat. aliun), o-riXXto from 
*<ttIXiw. But Cyprian has aUos (beside aA.(X)d), and Elean once aikorpux 
(beside oAAa, oreAAw). 

75. Xv. From *(7TdXvd, Lesb., Thess. a-TciWd, Dor. etc. aTaXd, 
Att.-Ion. a-TrfKi]. From */36\vd, *^6\voiJLai {*Se\, *^e\vop,ai, 
49.3, 68.2), Lesb. fioWd, Thess. /SeXKo/Mai, Att.-Ion. /3ovXij, ^ov\, 
Boeot. ^(o\a, ^ei\o/xai, Locr., Delph. BeiXofiai, EL, Coan, Heracl., 
Ther. 877X0/^04. From *f e'Xi/w, *pe\ve(o, Lesb. cnreWco (gloss), Ion. 
etXa), etXe'ci), Delph. etXe'cr^o), El. aTro/reXe'oi, -eoiav, Heracl. £7^?;- 
Xrjdimvri. (In these forms the meaning is debar, prevent. Cret. 
F€V/ieva<; = /reX/ieVos and KarafeXfievov are perf. pass, participles, 
like Horn. eeX/MeVo? from the same root, but meaning assembled.) 

a. Forms like oXXd/xi with XX in all dialects represent a later treatment 
of Xv (with V restored by analogy of SeiKvviu etc,). 

b. j3dXo/xai, from a form without v, is Arcado-Cyprian, and occurs also, 
beside ^ovkofjuu, in Ionic (Homer and Eretrian). 

76. Intervocalic o- + liquid or nasal. From *^e(r\ioi (cf. Skt. 
sa-hasra-), Lesb., Thess. j(^eWioi, Ion. etc. ^et'Xtot, Lac. ;^»;Xiot (Att. 
j(;tXtot from *;y;i'o-Xtot). From *ea-fil (Skt. asmi), Lesb. e/i/it, Thess. 
cVa"' elsewhere et'/^' or ■^fii (25). From *da-fie (cf. Skt. asmdn), Lesb. 
a/i/ite, Thess. a/i/^e, elsewhere a/^e, Att.-Ion. 95/ie'a?. From *aeXdavd 
(o-eXas), Lesb. aeXdwd, elsewhere aeXavd, Att.-Ion. aeXrjvq. 

a. For o-p cf. Hom. Tpi;p(i>v from *Tpaa-pa)i'(Tjoe'(D from *Tjoa7(D). Butthere 
is no example of Lesb., Thess. pp; and the development was not parallel 
to that of crX etc., assuming that Lesb. tpos is from Hcrpo- (13.1). 


h. Initial trX etc. became A\ etc., later simple A etc. The earlier stage 
is represented by occasional early spellings with \h etc., e.g. Aegin. \ha.- 
jSuiv, Corcyr. phofauri, Mheiiios. 

Compounds and augmented or reduplicated forms of such words only 
rarely show the development proper to intervocalic crX etc., as Att. akt)^ 
from *(ria-Xa.<j)a. Usually this was checked by the analogical influence of the 
simplex, and the subsequent development was to XA, etc., later (under the 
continued influence of the simplex and of words with original initial X. etc.) 
simply X. etc., e.g. Hom. e-Wa/Se, a-WrjKTOi, t-ppeov, e-vveov, <^tXo-/A/ia8i;s, 
later eXa/3e etc. But pp usually remained, e.g. Att. Ippvrjv beside cAajSc, 
Dor. -eppvd, though here there is considerable variation, especially in com- 
pounds (Att. irapapvpaTa and irapappvpaTa, etc.). Cf pp from pp, 55 a. 


77. 1. Original intervocalic va. From *fjL7)va6^ (cf. Lat. mensis), 
Lesb. /ifjvvo^ (also /j,rjvo<;), Thess. ixuvvo'i (also fjueivo^), Att. etc. fi,r)v6<! 
(in this word the vowel was already long). From *eKpiva-a, Lesb. 
eKpivva, Att. etc. eKplva. From *efiev<ja, Thess. efievva, Att. etc. 
ep,eiva. From *e(f>av(Ta, Dor. etc. e(j>dva, Att.-Ion. e<j>rjva. Similarly 
fia; as, from *evefjLa-a, Lesb. eve/i/Ma (gram.), Att. etc. eveifia. 

a. The dat. pi. of v-stems, as Troi/jLea-i, Saijuotrt, is not formed from -ej/o-i, 
-ovtri, but from -acn (cf. <f>paa-i Pindar) with substitution of the vowel of 
the other cases. But in Arc. hi^popvapjova-i the v also is introduced from the 
other cases, and this secondary v<j is retained (cf. 3). 

2. va + consonant lost its v in proethnic Greek without effect 
on the preceding vowel, e.g. /eeo-ro? from *Kevo-To'? (cf. Kevrew), av- 
a-Kevd^co from *avv-aKevd^(o, etc. So also Epid. acrTd<! from *avaTd<; 
= avaard';, Delph. a^eroco perhaps from *av^eT6a> = *ava^eT6a) (but 
see no. 53.17, note). 

3. Secondary intervocalic va, in which a- comes from rt, dental + 
0-, or T before i, had an entirely different history from that of 
original va, which was changed before the new va came into 
existence. This va is retained in Cretan (i.e. Central Cretan, cf. 
273), Argohc (mainly Argive, cf. 251), Thessalian, and Arcadian, 
while in other dialects it loses the v with lengthening, in Lesbian 
with diphthongization, of the preceding vowel. Thus from *7rdvna, 


Cret., Arg., Thess., Arc. Trdva-a, Att. etc. iraaa, Lesb. iralcra. Prom 
*fj,6vTia, Cret. etc. */j.6va-a (not yet quotable), Lesb. fiolcra, else- 
where nova-a or /iwo-a. From nom. sg. fern. pres. part, -i^r-ta, Cret. 
exovffa, dyova-a, efiiovaa, etc., Thess. Xeiropevaavaa, aweXevde- 
pe<T0ev(Ta (Arc, Arg. examples lackmg), Lesb. exoLaa, apfi6^oi(7a, 
Sdfj,eia-a, etc., elsewhere -ova-a or -coaa, -daa, -eicra. From dat. pi. 
pres. part, -vr-ai,, Cret. ein^dWovai, iXovai, viKaaavai, etc., Arg. 
iirayyeXKova-i (Arc. examples lacking ; Thess., Lesb. -vreacri), else- 
where -ovtra or -cBcra etc. From aor. *eaTrevBa-a, Cret. ecnrevcra, 
Att. etc. ea-ireia-a. From 3 pi. -vrt (West Greek ^epovn etc.). Arc. 
Kpivmvai, iroCevai, etc., Lesb. exoia-i, ypd^coiai, TiOeia-i, etc. (so also 
Chian Xd^miaiv, irpri^oKTiv, cf. 184), Att. etc. ^epovai. Observe 
that 3 pi. -vai is exclusively Arcadian, since this is the only dia- 
lect which belongs both to the va and the ai from n (61) groups. 

a. In derivatives in -<tk from verbs in -vm, vo- is kept in all dialects, 
e. g. not only Cret. av7rav<ns = ava.<f>av<Tvs, Epid. oXxiktvs, but Att. irp6<f>av<Ti':, 
v<l>av(TLs, etc., owing to the influence of the verbs. 

78. Final v<;. Since i'9 -|- consonant lost its v in proethnic Greek 
(77.2), the same wOuld be true of final v^ in close combination 
with a folloAving word beginning with a consonant. Hence there 
arose doublets such as 1) before vowel t6v^, rdv;, 2) before eon- 
sonants ToV, Tw. Such doublets are found in Cretan, the Gorty- 
nian Law-Code still adhering very closely to the original distribution 
in the case of the article, e.g. tov<; eXevOepov;, but to? tcaSea-rdv;. 
But elsewhere the use of one or the other set of forms has ceased 
to depend at all upon the initial of the following word. 

Accusatives in -09, -a? are the regular forms in Thessalian, 
Arcadian (so probably Cyprian -os not -09), Theran, are frequent 
in Coan (-09 beside -0119), and are occasionally found in other Doric 
dialects and in literary Doric (e.g. frequent in Theocritus). Other 
dialects have -ov<;, -av<;, or forms coming therefrom by the same 
development as that seen in the case of secondary intervocalic 1/9 
(irdva-a etc. 77.S), e.g. Arg. to'v9, rdvi (for Argolic in general, see 
251), Lesbian rok, rak, in most dialects tou9 or tm? (25), Ta9. 


Only Elean, in spite of iraaa, has here a development similar to 
the Lesbian, yielding -ai'i and later, with the rhotacism (60.1), 
-aip, -oip. At the time of the early Elean inscriptions the diph- 
thong was not yet fuUy developed (pronounced -a*?, -0*9 with 
incipient diphthongs) and we find the spelling -o?, -o? beside -at?, 
*ot9 (there happen to he no o-stem accusatives in those inscrip- 
tions which show -aK). 

Similarly the preposition eV? in Cretan (beside more usual e?) 
and Argive (cf. 251), whence ek or e? (note that Lesb. ek has a 
genuine diphthong, like rok, and so differs from the ek of other 

Cf. also the treatment of final v<; from -vt-?, e.g. nom. sg. part. 
Cret. vLKda-av<s, Karadev; (also viKaOe'; Latos), Heracl. kutoXv- 
HaKcodi]';, Att. etc. n6ek, Lesb. o-rot^ew, Thess. evepyere';, Arc. 
hiepoOvTei, Ther. alpe6i<;. 

\<r, per 

79. From *ea-Te\aa, Lesb., Thess. ea-reWa, Att. etc. eareiKa, Cret. 
ecTTTjXa. From *e^^e/3o-a, Lesb. *e^6eppa (cf. reppat = relpai), Att. 
etc. e^deipa. From *xepcr- (cf. Skt: haras, grip) Lesb. x^PP' iX^PP"''' 
Theocr.), Att. etc. x^t/s-, Epid. xvp- (but see 25 6). 

80. But in another set of words \a and pa did not have this 
development, but" remained unchanged in most dialects, while in 
several this pa was assimilated to pp. Cf. Horn. aXaoi, KeXaai, 
eKepaev, (Spare, apa-rjv, ddpaov, Ion., Lesb., Cret., Epid., Coan eparjv, 
Lac. apa-ri<;, Cypr. [ej/ee/jo-ei/, and Odpao^ or 0epa-o<: in most dialects 
(partly in proper names only). 

The assimilation to pp is Attic as dpprjv, 6dppo<;, etc. (so in the 
earliest inscriptions ; pa- in early Attic writers is Ionic), West Ionic 
as appeviK&v (Cumae), dyappi<s (N'aples), @appnriS7]<:, etc., Arca- 
dian as (l)6epai, (for (f)0eppai, corresponding to ^Oepaai, like (j)6ep- 
aavre'! in Lycophron, not to ^delpai, which would be 4>^fjpai 
in Arcadian), appevrepov (but also @epaia<i, and ■7ravdyopai<: for 
which see below, a), Elean, as fdppevop, 6dppo<;, Oappev (in later 
epaevakepo<;, pa is due to Koivrj influence), Theran as \a\{p)peva, 



®a{p)pfj<;, ®ha{p)pvij,apbo<;, etc. (aU archaic ; in later dparjv, ©dpacov, 
pa is due to Koiv^ influence). Proper names with pp = pa- occur 
also in Phoolan (Delph. @app{Kcov, @dppav^po<;, Amphiss. &dppv^), 
and, beside more usual pa, in Boeotian (e.g. &dpoyjr, but &epaav- 
Spov etc. usual) and Megarian (e.g. Xeppia<:, but edpao<i etc. usual). 
Cf. also Kdppmv from *Kdpaa(ov (Cret. Kdprav, 81), in Alcman, 
Epicharmus, and Sophron. 

a. Even in dialects which regularly have pp, p<r may be retained by 
analogy, e. g. Att. drjpai etc. after other datives in -crt, KaOapaKs etc. after 
other nouns in -<ns. So Arc. Travayopcrts. But even in these words there is 
sometimes assimilation, as Att. Seppts, West Ion. ayappK. 

b. The divergent development of Ao-, pa; as given in 79 and 80, probably 
depended originally on the accent, the retention of \cr, per (later pp), being 
normal when they immediately followed the accent. In aorists there would 
be leveling in both directions, and the development is usually that given in 
79, but sometimes that of 80 (Horn. Kc'Atrat, Spcre, Arc. <j>6epaL). 

(T(T, TT 

81. Att. TT = Ion. a-a- comes from ki, %t, and (apparently, see 82) 
from Tt, or 0i, and is chiefly seen in presents like (jivXaTTco, ^v- 
Xdaaw (ki), KopvTTco, Kopvaam (di), in femiuines like yX&Tra, 
yX&a-a-a (p^t), neXirra, fieXiaaa (tj), and in comparatives like ^ttiov, 
TJacrcov (ki), Kpeirrcov, Kpeaatov (tj). t/t gives the same result, e.g. 
T€TTape<!, reacrepei (54 e, 114.4). Inscriptions show that Attic had 
TT from the earliest times, the acr of the early writers being due 
to Ionic influence. Most of the dialects agree with Ionic, but the 
Attic TT is found also in Boeotian ((pvXdTTO), ddXaTTa, TreTTape<s), 
Cretan (laTTa = Arg. eaaaa, KupTcov from *KdpTTcov), and Euboean, 
at least in Styra, Eretria, Oropus (eXdTToav, irprjTTw, KiTTirj<;). 

a. (T<j in late Cretan, as irpaxxaia, OdXacra-a, ^/aicto-os (from *rifu.Tp(K, 61.6), 
is due to KOivri influence (in kolvti inscriptions crcr is more common than the 
strictly Attic rr); after these also oaacys for earlier otto^ (82). Some of the 
late inscriptions have 66 in words of this class, as 6a\a66a, tadda, also for 
those belonging under 82, as 666aKiv, for original o-cr, as fereddi, and for 
or, as id6avT£'s. For ad it is earlier (85.3). 


b. Although the Thessalian inscriptions usually have a-cr, there is some 
evidence that the dialect had tt originally, or at least in certain localities. 
Aside from OdXaTra, ttitto., which are quoted as Thessalian, cf . the proper 
names Kottu^os, ^vmoi, etc., and especially IleT^aXos from "ScttoXos (65). 

a, <j<y, TT 

82. Tt and ^t give Att. <t not tt, and Ion. a (early era often in 
poetry, but never in inscriptions) in o(70<;, cnroao'; (rt), /ieio-o? 
{*tie0io<!, cf. Skt. madhyas). A dental + o- gives precisely the same 
result, e.g. eKofita-a, eZUaaa, etc. In all such cases most dialects 
have a-a- or o- (for era- cf. Lesb., Thess., Delph., EL, Heracl., ArgoL, 
East Cret. oacro<;, Heracf. fiecrcroi}, eSaaa-d/jLeda, ArgoL SiKaaa-eco, 
ihiKaaaav), but Boeotian and Cretan have tt, e.g. Boeot. fierTO'i, 
otto'tto?, iylra^LTTaTO, aTToXoyiTTacTTr}, Cret. fj,eTTO<;, ottoi, otto'tto?, 
haTTadOai. In some very early Cretan inscriptions we find ^, as 
0^09, avSd^adai. 

Note. This is to be recognized as the normal development of rt and 9i. 
The different result seen in the classes of words mentioned in 81 is due to 
the influence of the forms containing gutturals. After a consonant ri gives 
T in all dialects ; e. g. Trdva-a, naxra, from *ird.vTta. 

Original <7ff 

83. Original acr, which becomes o- in Attic (ireXea-a, ryevea-i), is 
retained, as in Homer etc., in several dialects (cf. ocro-o? etc., 82), 
e.g. Lesb. eaa-ovTai, Thess. eacreadeiv, Heracl. icra-rJTai, Ther. eo-- 
a-eiTui, Lesb. a-vvTekecra-avTa, ofwaa-avTe'i, Boeot. a-ovvKakeacravTei 
(143), dat. pL Lesb., Thess., Boeot., Delph., EL -eaat, HeracL -aaai 
(107.3). For late Cret. pereddi. etc., see 81 a. ■ 

84. Attic-Ionic ^, which was pronounced zd and comes from zd 
{6^o<;, Germ. Ast, 'Adijva^e from -a{v)<;-S€) or, more often, from yi 
(fiei^av, ne^mv) or S_, (Trego's), is also f in the majority of other dia- 
lects. Lesb. o-S, found in our literary texts and in a few late inscrip- 
tions, is only another spelling of the same sound, adopted perhaps 
because ^ was used with the value of 2 in fa = Sid, etc. (19.1). 


But assimilatioQ to 8S, initial S, is Boeotian, Thessalian, Elean, 
Cretan, Laconian, and Megarian (?). Boeot. ypa/ifiaTiBSm, i|r a^i'SSw, 
BoKtfidSBa, lapeidSSm, rpeveSSa, Stow (^coco), Aeu?, Thess. i^^ava- 
Kd{S)Sev (no. 33 ; the only example, so possibly BS only in Thessa- 
liotis, but there is no evidence against its being general Thessalian). 
El. 8iKd{S)Sm, xpai{S)Sa>, Cret. BiKaBSw, ■\jra<l>iBSa), ipydSSofiai, j>pov- 
TiSSo), hmm, B(o6<;, Bvyov, Arjva (Zrjva), Lac. yv/jLvaBBoiiat etc. in Ar. 
Lys., fiiKKixtBSofievoi, 6'n-i{S)B6[/j,evo'i], Aev? in inscriptions. Aevf 
occurs also on a vase from Ehodes, and is perhaps genuine Eho- 
dian. Cf. the occasional assimilation of <tS in external combination 
in Ehodian, 97.4. Meg. SS is doubtful (Ar. Ach. fidSSa, xpyBBco, but 
only f in inscriptions). 

In Cretan and Elean the spelling tt is also found, as Cret. ^pov- 
TiTTft), iaTrpefifiiTTm (eKTrpe/Jivi^a)), Trfjva, Tfjva (ZTJva), El. voa-riTTot) 
(yoaTi^o)), aTTdfj,io<; (ofjy/Ltto?). 

a. There is some interchange between presents in -o-tro) or -tto) and those 
in -^0) or -88(0, owing to the identity of their future and aorist forms. Thus 
Att. <T<f)dTT<i) = Ion. (T<f>d^<i>, Boeot. cr<l>dSSio, Thess. iji^vLtrau) = Att. i/jL^a- 
vi^oi, and, vice versa, Cret. ■ttjooSSoj = Att. irpaTTO), crwetrcraSSa) = Att. -o-arTco. 


85. 1. (TT = a-6. The use of ar for a-6 (see 63) is mainly charac- 
teristic of Northwest Greek. It is the regular spelling in Locrian, 
as he\e<TTai, hapea-rai, and early Elean, as ;)^;/3eeo-Tat, Xva-daro, and 
occurs with some frequency in Phocian, as Delph. irpoa-ra, hiKa^d- 
cTTo, later r^iveaTm etc.. Stir. Oeerrcov, cnroTroXiTeva-aa-rai. It occurs 
also in Boeotian, in late inscriptions of Orchomenus {cnroXoyiTTa- 
a-TT] etc.), where it is perhaps due to Aetolian influence, and twice 
in Thessalian {TreTreiaTeiv, eXeareiv, Larissa). But there are some 
early examples in other dialects, as Cret. p.iaro'i (Vaxos), Lac. airo- 
a-rpvOea-TM, ;)^/37ja-Tat, and in late times it is found in many parts 
of Greece, even at Athens. 

2. crcr = a-d. This is found in late Elean, as aTroSoaaai, (no. 60), 
iroirjaaaai (no. 61). 


3. 66 = <t6. This is usual at Gortyna and some of the other 
cities of central Crete, as Xv(ra66ai, hare 66 ai, Tpd<^e(6)6ai, etc. 
(also, rarely, t6, e.g. SeKerdai). But a-6 is found m most of the very 
earliest inscriptions, and in the latest (here koivtj influence). 

Assimilation, Dissimilation, and Transposition of Consonants 
86. Assimilation in consonant groups. Many of the changes 
belonging imder this head have been given already, e.g. under 55, 
69, 74-77, 79, 80, 84, 85. See also under external combination, 96- 
100. No notice is taken of assimUatioji which is common to all 
dialects and presumably proethnic, as S\ to XX, etc. 

This class of phenomena is one in which the difference between 
colloquial and careful speech is most noticeable, as may readily be 
observed in English. While some assimilations are so uniformly 
effected that the unassimilated form is completely displaced and 
forgotten, others remain colloquial only, the unassimilated form 
being still preferred in careful speech and writing. This accounts 
for much of the lack of uniformity in the evidence as regards some 
of the changes mentioned in this and the other sections. In some 
cases the spelling varies greatly even ia the dialects where the 
change is best attested. Sometimes the assimilation is imiform iu 
certain dialects, but evidently existed colloquially in others also 
and only sporadically made its appearance in the spelling. 

1. KT to TT in Cretan, wtti' = vvkti, Avtto? = Avkto<;. For 
Locr. e(T) ra?, see 100. Cf. also SiaXeXerrai, ia an inscription of 

2. ITT to TT iu Cretan and Thessalian. Cret. ^yparrai = yeypa- 
irrai, irevTO'i = Tr^/ttTTTOS, Thess. Aerrivaio^ (AeTrTiWto?), ol tto- 
Xiapxoi, apxirToXiapxevTo<! (■n-ToXi's, 67), also ar tS? etc. ia external 
combination (99.2). Cf. also Thess. 'At66v€ito<; = ' K^dovqTO's. 

3. 0-7 to 77 (7) in Cretan, irpelyv; probably from irpeiayv'; 
(Boeot. Trpia-yele^, 68.1), irpeiyevTo.^, irpdyav, nrpeiyiaro^, late Trprj- 
yia-Tov {Trprjjia-Tevw also Coan). A parallel change of aic to kk is 
seen in Laconian glosses, as KaSixKop = KaSiaKOi. 


a. Note that the forms cited, as also Thess. irptur/Sim., are formed from 
irpacr- (cf. also Cret. irpa'v beside irpiv), not irpeo-- as in Att.-Ion., Lesb. 
wpia-^vi. Late Cret. Trpeyyevras is a hybrid form. 

4. <7T to TT in Cretan, Laconian, and Boeotian. Cret. fierr e's 
beside fiea-ra, Lac. /Serrov, dress, = *pear6v (Etym. Magn.), Boeot. 
tTTO) = i<rT(o (At., Plato), eVre = eVre. But in the great majority of 
cases (7T remains in the spelling of inscriptions. 

5. pv to vv in Cretan. avvioiTo = apveoiro, ovvida = 6pvi0a, 'E\ev- 
Oevvalof = '^\ev6epvaio<;. 

6. /JLV to fifi in Cretan. icrTrpefifiiTTco = eKirpefivl^o). 

7. 7^ to v. yiyvofiai appears as yivofiai in most dialects except 
Attic (here also, but late), or as yiwfji,ai (Thess., Boeot.). yivco- 
(TKco = yiyvduTKO) occurs in Lesbian and in Ionic prose writers (Att. 
yeivma-KO) very late), and in some late. Doric inscriptions. This is 
not really assimilation, but loss of 7 by dissimilation from the ini- 
tial 7, supported, in the case of yivofiai, by the 761' of other tenses. 

87. Transposition in consonant groups. As tlktco from *titkq), 
so probably SuktuXo^ from *SaT«y\o9, to which points Boeot. 
SaKKv\io<; (kk from tk as in Thess. ttoa; kl from ttot k(, whereas 
KK from KT would be contrary to all analogy, cf. 86.1). But most 
examples are of colloquial and transitory character, more or less 
frequently repeated slips of the tongue, or sometimes, without 
doubt, only graphic. Thus from Attic inscriptions crxvvap'XpvTeov = 
^ervv- (^vp-y, ev(Ty(^dfji,evo<; = ev^o'dfievo';, a^V')(rj = '^v')(rj, eypaa^ev 
= eypa^jrev (often on vases), fiea-ojjLvq = necroSfiri (Sfj, first to Vfji. 
by assimilation). 

88. Assimilation, dissimilation, and transposition, between non- 
contiguous consonants. Except for the regular dissimilation of 
aspirates in proethnic Greek (65), these phenomena are of the same 
occasional character as the preceding (87). They are most fre- 
quently observable in the case of aspirates, or of liquids, for which 
see 65, 70. A na^al may interchange with a mute of its own class, 
by assimilation or dissimilation with another nasal, e.g. Cret. vvva- 
fiat, = Bvvafiai, (cf. Mod.Grk MevreXTj beside UivreXr}, name of 


the monastery on Mt. Pentelicus), or, vice versa, Att. Tep^ivOoi 
beside Tepfuv6o<;, Att. Kv^epvdco from *KVfiepvdco beside Cypr. kv- 
fiepevai, and ^dpvafiai = fiapva/jbai, which occurs in certain inscrip- 
tions in epic style from Athens, Corcyra, etc. (nos. 88, 90). See 
also 69.3, end, and 86.7. Among examples of transposition may be 
mentioned Ion. afM0peco = apidfiem, Delph., Epid. /36Xifio<! = fioXi- 
ySo? (Att. usually fj,6\v^So<;), also, with assimilation, Ehod. /36Xi- 
ySo9 (prepi^oXi^aerai). 

a. A few dialectic examples of haplology, or syllabic loss by dissimila- 
tion, may be added here. Epid. Ae/xtSt/ti/xvoi/ from ^|nt(/ie)8i;u,vov, as Att. ij/tic- 
Sifivov from ■q(fiL)fi.i8ifa/ov. Cret. veoras, body of young men, gen. vtoras from 
V€6Ta(To)i, ace. veoTa from vedraTa. 

Doubling of Consonants 

89. A single consonant is sometimes written double, this indi- 
cating a syllabic division by which it was heard at the end of one 
syllable and the beginning of the next. 

1. cro-T, <raK etc. Such spellings as dpia-aro^, oa-aTi<;, ypdyjraa-- 
adai, 'Aa-crK'\ijTno<;, KoacriJiol, are frequent, and not coniined to 
any particular dialect. For examples in external combination, see 
101.2. Similarly o-f (= z-zd) and |^ (= ks-s), e.g. Arg. SiKaa^co, 
Delph. SouXwrfa), Locr. yjrd^i^^K, Boeot. Ae^^Linra, Thess. i^^a- 

2. Before consonantal t in ThessaUan, as Tro'Wto? etc. See 19.3. 

3. Between vowels. This is confined to continuous sounds, 
especially Kquids and nasals, mostly after a long vowel or diph- 
thong. Thess. fivafJLfJi^Lov, AafjLfidTpeio<!, Lesb. irpoa'^prfp.iievco, Ehod. 
eifi/ieiv, Dodon. dfifieivov, Boeot. ddWa-trav, Thess. o/SeXkov, Delph. 
©e\7rovo-<rto5, El. avTaTroSiS&a-aa, Cret. (nrofBSdv (spirant S). Cf. 
also 101.1. Delph., Cret. a/jLtjuWeya) is from afijiUT-Xer^to, though 
Meg. dfi^eWeyov shows that it was felt as afi<f)t-\\€y(o. 

4. Epid. fieSififivov, hifiiStnnvov, laponfivdfiove^ (no. 83). Cret. 
aXk6TTpio<s, Arg. 7reT|TjOii;oi' (cf. Osc. alttram etc., frattre etc. ia 
Latin inscriptions). 


5. In hypocoristic proper names, where it originates in the voca- 
tive and is due to the emphatic utterance in calling. Examples, 
though found elsewhere, are by far most frequent in Boeotian, e.g. 
AyaOOm, Bi'otto?, MeVi^et, etc. 


90. The phenomena of external combination, or sentence pho- 
netics, such as elision, crasis, consonant assimilation, etc., are found 
in all dialects. But in Greek, as in most other languages, there is 
a tendency to limit more and more the scope of such changes, and 
to prefer, in formal speech and its written form, the uncombined 
forms. The iascriptions, Attic as well as those of other dialects, 
differ greatly in this respect according to their time and character. 
The following general observations may be made. 

1. The changes occur mainly between words standing in close 
logical relation. Thus oftenest in prepositional phrases, or between 
the article, adjective, or particle and the noun with which it agrees ; 
frequently between particles like Kai, Se, /^eV, etc. and the pre- 
ceding or following word ; less often between the subject or object 
and the following verb, and very rarely in looser combinations. 

2. While the less radical changes, such as the ehsion of a short 
vowel or the simpler forms of consonant assimilation, are least 
restricted in scope and survive the longest, the more violent forms 
of crasis and of consonant assimilation are the most infrequent and 
the soonest given up. Thus, in the matter of consonant assimila- 
tion, the partial assimilation of a nasal to a following mute, espe- 
cially a labial, as in rafi irokiv, is very common in all dialects down 
to a late period and sometimes observed even in loose combinations 
(cf. 96.1), but examples like toX Xoiyov, roiiv v6fiov<;, etc. are compara- 
tively infrequent and practically restricted to early inscriptions. 

1 Some matters which strictly belong under this head have been discussed 
elsewhere, as the rhotacism of final s, treatment of final ys, etc. 


3. Although the dialects differ in the extent to which they 
exhibit these phenomena and ^ some details (e.g. Cretan shows 
the most extensive and radical series of consonant assimilations), 
the differences depend more upon the time and character of the 
inscription, the degree to which the language has been formalized. 

4. There is no consistency in the spelling, even as regards the 
milder changes, combined and uncombined forms often standing 
side by side in the same inscription. 


91. Elision is common to all dialects, but, as in Attic, subject 
to great inconsistency as regards the written form, which even in 
metrical inscriptions is very often not in accord with the demands 
of the meter. In general elision is most frequent in the conjunc- 
tions and particles such as Se (^oSe, ovSe, etc.), re, ku, aXXd, etc., the 
prepositions, and, among case-forms, in stereotyped phrases like 
TTo'XX' ayaOd etc. The elision of a dipththong, e.g. Locr. Sei- 
Xer' av^opelv, is comparatively rare. For elision in place of usual 
crasis, see 94. 


92. Examples of aphaeresis, which is only a form of crasis, are 
rare. Ion. rj '?, firj 'Xda-aove^ (Chios, no. 4), Locr. I 'SeXcfiiov, e 
''Xeird/iov, fie 'TToa-rafiev, El. fie 'vrroi, fie 'irtiroeovTOV, fie 'iridelav, 
Lesb. cr[TaX\]a Vt. 

Shortening of a Final Long Vowel 

93. The shortening of a final long vowel before an initial vowel, 
so well known in poetry, is occasionally seen in inscriptions, e.g. 
Cret. jxe eKrfi (fir) exo), fie evSi/cov, etc., Meg. cTretSe "lKd<no<s. So 
Cypr. e| (^ e|) with t from e (9.3). 


94. Crasis, mostly of icai or forms of the article with the fol- 
lowing word, is found in the early inscriptions of all dialects, 


though the uncomhined forms are more frequent. As between the 
« phonetic principle," where the result of crasis is in accordance 
with the regular laws of contraction, and the " etymological prin- 
ciple," with lengthening of the second vowel as in Att. avrjp = 
6 avrip, the former is almost, if not wholly, predominant outside 
of Attic. 

1. o, 5 (ow), (o, + a (cf. 44.1). Ion. covrip, Tcoya>vo<; (rod ay&vo's), 
with the regular contraction to to, where Attic has dv^p, TdyS)vo<;. 
Similarly I^sb. (ht.) mvrjp, Arc. Karoppevrepov (Kara to appevre- 
joov), Delph. TcoTreXXaiov (rov ' AireXkaiov) , tcottoXKcovi (t&i 'AirdX- 
XtBw), Boeot. roiroXKovi (rol 'AiroXKcovi), Coruith. T07re(\)\ovi 
(tmi 'A-rreWcovi), rcoyaOov (to ayaOov), Meg. op'^eSafie (cS 'Apye- 
Safie), and so regularly in literary Doric. Elision, rather than crasis 
according to the " etymological principle," is probably to be assumed 
in the few examples like Corinth. rapia-Tepov^ (to apiaTepov), 
Arg. Tapyeloi (toI 'Apyeloi), TiayeXaiSa Tapyeio (6 'AyeXacSa tov 
'Apyeiov), Cypr. Ta(iJi,)<f>iSe^i6i (ra 'A/iw^tSe^to)). 

2. o, o (ov), + e (cf. 44.3). Att.-Ion. rovvofia (to ovofia), Lesb. 
(oviavT0<; (6 eviavro's), Locr. OTrdyov (6 eirdymv). 

3. a + o (cf. 41.2). Att., Dor. x'^ (''«' o)> Ioh-j Cret. k&J (koI 6), 
Lesb. (Ut.) KWTTi, (koL ottl). El. KoiroTapoi (koI oirorapoi). Cf. 
Aegin. y^oXetfta'i (kuI 6 iXe<f>a<;) with double crasis, hke x'^"^ {""■^ o 
e/c) in Theocritus. 

4. a + o (cf. 41.4). Meg. aXvvin,d<; (a, 'OXvv'ind<;). 

5. a + e (cf. 41.3). Locr. ha/mpoiKCa (a eiripoiKia). 

6. a + e (cf. 41.1). Att.-Ion. Kdyw (koo iyco), k&ttl (koi eiri), rav 
(t^ iv), etc.. West Greek ktjv, ktjk, KTpri (koi ev, koI ex, Kal iiri), 
etc. So also in Thessalian (no. 33) Kip and re? (ra e?). Lesbian has 
Kifie (koI i/jie) in an early ins^cription, though the texts of the Aeolic 
poets have mostly kcL- (KafjLo<i etc.); and Arcadian has Ke-rri. 

1 We continue, as a matter of convention, to transcribe in tlie form of crasis 
where the combination belongs to those which commonly suffer crasis, even in 
cases where we believe the phenomenon is elision. For it is impossible to draw 
the line between crasis and elision with certainty. See also under 7, 8, 9. 


7. With words beginning with a diphthong. Inscriptions some- 
times show the regular crasis with ev-, as Delph. KTjiiKKeia (ical 
Eu/eXeta), Ehod. ovSa/Mo (o Ev8d/Xov), but otherwise the diphthong 
unchanged, that is, what is probably elision rather than crasis, e.g. 
Thess. Kol ^ (Kal ol), Ion. TolKoireSov (to olKOTreSov), koIvottiStj'; (jeal 
OtVoTTt'S?;?), Delph. Kovre (km ovre). Similarly kov, kovtc, etc. in 
Attic and Ionic literature (also %ot = kuI ol, and xev- = xal ev-), 
and in Theocritus. Forms like wurd? (6 avro'i) in Herodotus and 
Theocritus, amoXo'i (o aliroKosi) in Theocritus, iccovSev (koX oiiSev) 
in Epicharmus, are rarely attested in inscriptions (once Ion. coiav- 
fivjjTr]<; = 6 alav/j.vqTrj';). But the proper transcription of forms in 
the pre-Ionic alphabet is sometimes uncertain, e.g. Thess. Kevpep- 
yerav {icaX evepyerav) or Kevfepyerav, Boeot. rivTpiTicfxivTO (ral 
EvrprfTK^avTw) or TevrperitpavTo , Aegin. hoiKo<! (o oIko<;') or hoiKo<;. 

8. With words beginning with i or v. Cret. Kvlee<: (kuI utVe?), 
El. KvTraBvKioi (kuI vtto-), Delph. KlSimrai (ical ISiMTai). 

In such cases there is of course no evidence as to whether the 
V or t was lengthened, as usually in Attic-Ionic, but probably we 
have here simply elision. 

9. In Elean in the forms of the article the final vowel or diph- 
thong disappears, sometimes even the vowel with final consonant. 
Thus riapov {to iapov), napo (rS iapSi), Ttapol (rol lapoi), Teiridpoi 
(tol eiriapoi), and even tuvto (to)? avTco), Top lapofxdop ToXvviriai 
(Tft)/) lapoixdap Tcop 'OXwrriai). This is clearly not crasis proper, 
but an extension of the principle of elision.^ Cf. Ovlwi (t&i viai) 
in an Attic inscription. Once El. toI 'vtuvt iypafievoi with 


95. Apocope of prepositions is almost unknown in Attic-Ionic 

inscriptions, but is usual in other dialects for at least some of the 

prepositions. All of them have av (or 6v, iiv) and irdp (even Ionic 

has av in literature and a few cases of wdp in inscriptions). waV 

^ See footnote, p. 73, 


and TTOT are found in nearly all the West Greek dialects (but not 
ia Cretan, and rarely in Argolic), and in Boeotian and Thessalian. 
But these are mostly confined to the position before dentals, espe- 
cially forms of the article. Before other consonants they occur, 
with assimilation, in Thessalian and sometimes lq Boeotian and 
Laconian; /car also in Lesbian and Arcado-Cyprian (lq Arcadian 
icd before all consonants in early inscriptions, later only before the 
article, otherwise /carv formed after awv). irep occurs iq Delphian 
(cf. also Tre/aoSo? = 7repioSo<;), Elean {•>rdp), and Thessalian ; also in 
Lesbian (Alcaeus), and in a few proper names ia Locrian (Ile/jpo- 
dapidv), Cretan, and Laconian. ostt, ctt, vtt are Thessalian only, 
except for two examples of eV in Boeotian before ir. An apocopated ■ 
form of TreSa is seen in Arc. ire rot? i.e. -n-eiS) rot?. 

Apocope is most extensive in Thessalian, which has av, Trap, kot, 
-TTOT, irep, air, iir, vir. Tlie Thessalian genitive singular in -oi is also 
best explained as arising from -oto by apocope, beginning with the 
article, which was, of course, proclitic like the prepositions (cf. 45.4). 

Apocopated forms are more common in early iascriptions than 
later, when there is a tendency, partly due to Koivrj influence, to 
employ the full forms. 

a. Forms like /carov, wordv, instead of kcit tov, ttot tov, occur not only in 
early inscriptions where double consonants are not ■mritten, but also in the 
later inscriptions of some dialects. For the most part the matter is one of 
spelling only, but in some cases such forms represent the actual pronuncia- 
tion, due in part to actual simplification of the double consonants, in part 
to syllabic dissimilation or haplology, as in later Attic KaraSe from Ka(Ta) 
TctSe. So in Arcadian the spelling is almost uniformly Ka (early KaTovw, 
KOKpive, etc., later KwraTrtp, Koxaixhiav). In doubtful cases it is better to 
expand the forms to Ka(T) Toi/etc. in our texts, if only f<?r the convenience 
of the student. 

Consonant Assiinilation 

96. Assimilation of final v. 

1. To the class of a following labial or guttural. Cases like t^/x 
iroXtv, roy KrjpvKa, vvp. fiev, are frequent in Attic inscriptions, and 
likewise ia the other dialects. So also between object and verb as 


Delph. TOKiofi {jtepero), Arc. iroa-o^on iroevTw, and in looser combina- 
tions as Att. iaTl/i irepl, Arc. iv eiriKpLai^ Kardirep, Arg. ■Trotoiey 

2. To <r. Att. e? ^d/Mcoi, Ion. rm (Tv^niravrav, Delph. a? 2e\eu- 
Kos (a? = dv), ecrTQ)(?) avXeovre^, Epid. to? aaKov. Cf. Ion. iraaav- 
Sirji beside TravavSirji, and Lesb. TraeravSidaavro^. 

Before cr + consonant. Att. e'.cr arijXrji but oftener e arriXtfi, also 
Te a-reXep. So Ehod., Cret. e crraXat, El. ra crrdXav. These do not 
arise by assimilation but by regular loss of v. See 77.2, 78. 

3. To X. Att. eX XifivAK, rb\ Xoyov, Ion. eX Aapva-crm, Delph. 
TwX Aa^vaSdv, Lac. e'X AuKeSuLfiovi, Epid. roX XCOov, t&X Xcdtov. 

■ Cf. a-vXXeyco, aXXvco — dvaXvw, etc. 

4. To /3. Att. ip 'PoScoi, Top 'PoSiov. Cf. crvppiirTco etc. 

a. In Cyprian, where v before a consonant is always omitted in the inte- 
rior of a word, it is also frequently omitted in sentence combination as 

Ta(v) TTToXlV. 

97. Assimilation of final ?. 

1. To V. Delph. Toiiv v6p,ov<;. Cf. YieXoirowTja-oii (IleXoTro? 
vrjcrov). ' 

2. To fi and f . Cypr. pewo^ii) fieya = feiro's p^eya, Ta(/r) fa- 
vda(a)a'; = ra? pavdaam. In the same way arose «a = /ca? (icai) 
iu Cypr. ko, fiev, Arc. ko, f otKtot?. 

3. To X. Att. ToX Xido'i, Cret. toiX Xeiovai, tIX XSi (rt? Xijt), 
Lac. eX AuKeBaifiova (eX = e?), toi(X) AaKehaifiovioK. 

4. To S. So regularly in Cretan, e.g. rdZ hai(no<;, raS Se, eS Si- 
Kaa-reptov, iraTpoB SoVtos. Earely elsewhere, but cf. Ehod. Zev{S) 
Be (no. 93), fiaTp6{S) Be, Ta{B) Bevre'pat. Assimilation in the oppo- 
site direction is seen in Arg. /ScoXa? a-evrepat (no. 81). 

5. To e. Cretan only, as t^O Ovyarepa'i. Cf. Cret. 00 = ad 
medially (85.3). 

a. Before a word beginning with a vowel final s may be treated as intervo- 
calic, e. g. Lac. AtoAi/ceVa AioXevOepiS = Aios IkItov Atos iXevOepiov (cf . 59.1), 
Cypr. KO a.(v)n, to. v)(£pov (59.4), Eretr. oirtop av (60.3). 

100] PHONOLOGY - 77 

98. Assimilation of final p to S. So regularly in Cretan, e.g. aveS 
Boi, vaTeS Soei and 7raTe(S) Soei, inre(S) Se. Of. Cnid. ■7ra(S) Adfia- 
Tpa (wap Aa/nar/aa). 

99. Assimilation of a final mute. 

1. Final t. The apocopated forms of Kara and ttotl, so far as 
they occur otherwise than before r (cf. 95), are generally assimi- 
lated (sometimes with further simplification; cf. 95 a), e.g. Thess. 

KUTT TVaVTO'i, TTOK kL (tTOT Kl = TTjOO? Tt), BoeOt. TToS Ad(pVr], TTOK 

KaTOTrTw;, Lesb. kuk Ke(f>dXa<; (Alcaeus), KUfi ixev (Sappho), etc. So 
in compounds, e.g. El. Ka{h)Ba\eoLTO, Ka{6)9vTd^, Lesb. /ea/S/3aXXe 
(Alcaeus), KaXX.vovro<;, Arc. Kaieei/j-evav, icaKpive, Lac. Ka/Sara (Ka- 
ra^aTov), KajSatvcav (Alcman), etc. But tO is often unassimilated. 

2. Final tt. Thess. cnr, em- = airo, iirl. are assimilated in dr ra?, 
er Tol. Cf. 86.2. 

3. Final k. See 100. 

100. e|. In most dialects, as in Attic, e| becomes e/e before a 
consonant, this appearing often as 1% before an aspirate, and 67 
before sonant mutes and X, /x, v, p, until late times when m is 
usual before all consonants. The general rule is, then, e^ before 
vowels, and e/c (i'x^, iy) before consonants. But the antevocalic form 
ef occasionally appears before consonants in various dialects (so 
regularly in Oyprian, as e^ toi etc.). 

In Locrian it is fully assimilated to all consonants, whence, with 
the simphfication of double consonants in the spelling, it appears 
simply as e, e.g. e Ta<;, i Sd/io, etc., i.e. e(T) ra?, e'(S) Sdfio, e'(p) poi- 
vdvov, e(9) OdXaa-a-wi, e(X) Xt/ievo';, i(y) 'NavirdKTO. 

In Thessalian, Boeotian, Arcadian, and Cretan the regular form 
before consonants is e?, e.g. Thess. es rdv, ia-So/jLev, Boeot. e's tS>v, 
iaXiaivco (cf. also ia-K-qSeKaTrj from ef). Arc. e? rol, eVSe'XXoi'Tes, 
ifTTrepaa-ai, Cret. e? top, ia-tcXTja-ia, Thess., Boeot., Cret. ea-yovoi; = 
eKyovo<;. AH these dialects have ef before vowels except Boeotian, 
where e%? appears in an early inscription, but usually eo-?, as eo-? 
i^ei^mv, ecrtTeifiev. This is probably a transfer of the anteeonso- 
nantal form in an intermediate stage of its development (e^, eVs, e's). 


a. There are some traces of es in other dialects which generally have ck or 
e'^, e.g. Cypr. es ttoO' IpTrti- iroOev i]Kfis (Hesych.), Arg. e(s) St/ceA-uas, and 
according to some es irdAtos = «« iroXios (but see note to no. 75), Sicil. I<7k\ij- 
Tos (Syracuse, Rhegium), Delph. tayovoi (? no. 51, C 45). 

Consonant Doubling 

101. 1. Before vowels. Cret. raw e/^iWi/, o-vw-lt, Boeot., Corintli. 
avv-eOrjKe, Att. ^vvv-ovtl, also iji'i' e^wy, toi'!' av, in a Koti'^ inscrip- 
tion. This is a compromise between phonetic and etymological 
syllabification, and the examples, though rare, are mostly earUer 
than those for the similar doubling in internal combination (89.3). 

2. With oo-cttk; etc. (89.1), compare Att. etV? ti]V, Epid. eV? to, 
etc., or Epid. to craKeXo'i, Coan tov a<rT€^dvov. 

V movable 

102. The V movable in the dative plural in -a-i(v) and in the 
verb forms in -ai(v) and -e(i') is a marked characteristic of Attic- 
Ionic, where it appears from the earhest inscriptions on with in- 
creasing frequency and before both vowels and consonants. (In Attic 
its use becomes gradually more and more uniform before vowels, 
and it is also somewhat more common before a pause in the sense 
than elsewhere.) Only in the dative plural does it appear in other 
dialects, and even here only in Thessalian (xpefiaa-iv, no. 33) and 
Heraclean (evTaaaiv etc.). In verb forms it is wholly unknown in 
the older inscriptions of other dialects, and where found is a sure 
sign of K0CV1] influence. 

Note. In the dat. pi. -cnv the v is due to the analogy of pronominal 
datives like Att. ij/tiiv. Dor.,iv, Lesb. afifuv and aixfii, in which v is in- 
herited (beside a form without v). After the dat. pi. -<7i(v) arose the 3 pi. 
-o-i(v), e.g. 3 pi. <j>ipov(n(v) after dat. pi. part. <^€joou<ri(v), then also 3 sg. 8t- 
8ft)cri(v), TiOrfTiiv), etc. Another source is 3 sg. ^ev (originally 3 pi. with 
etymological v, 163.3) to 1 sg. ^a, after the analogy of which arose -£(v) to 
aU forms with 1 sg. -a, as olSev, W-qKev, from which it extended later to 
forms with 1 sg. in -ov, as eXcyEi/, iXajSei', etc. which are not found in the 
earliest inscriptions. 

103] PHONOLOGY 79 


103. Of the dialects outside of Attic-Ionic, Lesbian is the only 
one of whose accentual peculiarities we have any adequate knowl- 
edge. This was characterized by the recessive accent, e.g. TroVa/ios, 
a6(f)o<!, ySacrt'Xeu?, XeO/cos. 

The Doric accent is said by the grammarians to be processive in 
certain classes of forms, e.g. iXd^ov, ardaai, alye'; = Att. eXa/Sov, 
(TTrjaai, alye^. But the statements are too meager to admit of gen- 
eralization as to the system as a whole, nor is it known whether 
all Doric dialects had these peculiarities. Hence the practice now 
frequently adopted, and followed in this book, of giving Doric forms 
with the ordinary Attic accent. In general our accentuation of 
dialect forms can be little more than a matter of convenience. 

o. A question of detail, touching -which there is considerable difference 
of practice among editors of dialect texts, is whether, in the case of inflec- 
tional forms which differ in their quantitative relations from the corre- 
sponding Attic forms, to adopt the actual accent of the Attic forms or to 
change the accent to accord with the Attic system, e. g. infin. xpivev lite 
Kpiviiv, or Kptvev, ace. pi. <j>ipoix,ivfK like ^epofievmn, or <^EjQo/xevos, Cret. Kaip- 
Tovavs, cTTaTyjpavi like KpuTTOvws, (TTaTTJpa^, or KapTovavi, (rraT-qpavs- The 
question of the true accentuation is a complicated one, differing in each 
class of forms, and impossible of any certain answer. But practical conven- 
ience favors the use of the Attic accent in some cases, as in the accusative 
plural to distinguish it from the nominative, and we adopt this alternative 
in all the cases mentioned. 

The pronominal adverbs in -a, -at, and -m we accent as perispomeua, 
following here what the grammarians laid down as the Doric accent, since 
this affords a convenient working rule, and, for -a), serves to distinguish 
e. g. Tovrm from gen. tovto). But it is far from certain that the accent was 
uniform, and that we should write e.g. dAAei, oAAat, TravrSi, as we do, and 
not, with some, aXXa like Att. oixa, and oXAou, ■n-d.vra.i like Att. aXX-g, 
TravTj;. And as between mrei and oiret, etc., about which the grammarians 
were in doubt, we definitely prefer oTrei, oirai, oTrrt, oirrj, oirui (cf . Att. oirov 
beside ttov, in spite of avrov etc.). We accent evSoi, e^ot, ^x°'' ^*°'' ^^^^ 
oiKoi, though evSot etc. (cf. ivravdoi) may also be defended. 



Feminine a-Stems 

104. 1. NoM. Sg. -d, Att.-Ion. -17. 

2. Gen. Sg. -a?, Att.-Ion. -579. — Arc. -dv after the masculine, as 
oiKiav, ^afiiav, but only at Tegea, and here -d<s beside -dv in early 
inscriptions, and always ra?, 

3. Dat. Sg. -di, Att.-Ion. -rji, whence also -d, -rj, -ei. See 38, 39. 
— Boeot. -at {-ae, -r), 26), and this is to be assumed in the other 
dialects which have -ot (106.2). 

4. Aco. Sg. -dv, Att.-Ion. -ijv. 

5. NOM. Pl. -di (Boeot. -ae, -t), 26). 

6. Gen. Pl. -awv, -eav, -mv, -dv. See 41.4. 

7. Dat. Pl. In early Attic, -dcn(v), -7]cn(v), sometimes -dicn(v), 
-riia-i(v), after 420 B.C. -at?. — In Ionic, -r)iai(v) regularly, -ai? being 
rare and probably Attic. — In Lesbian, -aicri (but always rat?), 
and this occurs, rarely, elsewhere. — Most dialects have -at? from 
the earliest times. 

8. Ago. Pl. -av;, with the same development as has -ov? from 
o-stems, namely (see also 78) : 

-av^, -ov; 

-av<i, -ov;, Cret., Arg.

Cret., Arc, (Cypr.?) 

-a?, -ou? or -60? 
Most dialects 

-at?, -ot? 

-a?, -ai<i, -aip 

-o?, *-0t9, -oip 



Masculine d-Stems 

105. 1. NOM. Sg. -a? (with secondary ?, after the analogy of -09), 
Att.-Ion. -■»??. 

a. Forms without s also occur, several in Boeotian (Trvdiovuca, KaXXla, 
etc.), and a few from other parts of Northwest Greece. Cf. also El. tc- 
Xeora, though this is possibly a form in -to. like Horn. hnroTa. 

2. Gen. Sg. -do (with o, in place of s, after that of o-stems), 
whence Are.-Cypr. -dv (22), elsewhere -a, Ion. -e<o, -ta. See 41.4. 
Att. -ov is not from -do, but the o-stem form taken over as a whola 

a. -dfo, in TXa<T«i/ro, Ila<naSapo, of two metrical inscriptions from 
Corcyra (no. 87) and Gela, is a reminiscence of the epic -do (the spoken 
form was already -d, which appears in other equally early inscriptions, as 
'ApvuiSa no. 88, A/rcvux no. 85) with the introduction of a non-etymological 
p, either representing a glide sound before the following o (cf. dfvrav, 
no. 88. See 32), or due to a false extension from forms with etymological 
p, as XapAs = Hom. Xdo^. 

b. Forms in -ds, with the old ending unchanged and belonging with the 
nominatives in -d (above. In), occur in scattered examples in Megarian 
(no. 92) and from various parts of Northwest Greece. 

c. Att.-Ion. proper names in -ip, from the fourth century on, frequently 
form the genitive after the analogy of cr-stems, e. g. Att. KoAAtdSovs (after 
Aij/MxrOeyov; etc.), Ion. AcaSeos, ' ApurrclBeiK- This type spreads to other 
dialects, e.g. Rhod. MvcoviSevs. 


106. 1. Gen. Sg. -010 (from *-oo-to, cf. Skt. -asya) as in Homer, 
whence, with apocope, Thess. (Pelasgiotis) -01, as rot, XP°^°'-' ^*'°- 
Elsewhere, with loss of t and contraction, -ov or -m (25). — In 
Cyprian -ov beside -o (at Idalium fiurdov, apyvpov, ^iXoKvirpov, 
etc., and so usually -ov in nouns, whether vowel or consonant fol- 
lows ; but also apyvpo, dXpo, before a consonant, and always to). 

a. -oto is often employed in metrical inscriptions, in imitation of the 
epic, e.g. nos. 87, 88. But in Thessalian it also occurs in a few prose in- 
scriptions, and the grammarians often refer to the Thessalian genitive in 
-010. This, together with the fact that apocope is more extensive in Thes- 
saJian than in any other dialect (see 95), makes the derivation of the usual 


Thess. -ot from -mo far more probable than other explanations which sepa- 
rate it entirely from this and so from the forms of all the other dialects. — 
For the added v in Cyprian no explanation that has been offered is adequate. 

2. Dat. Sg. -at in most dialects, whence also -co (38 ; Thess. ov, 

23). ot in Arcadian, Elean, Boeotian (-oe, -v, -et, 30), and in later 

inscriptions from various parts of Northern Greece (Delphi, AetoUa, 
Acarnania, Epirus, Cierium in Thessaly, Euboea). 

a. In Euboea -ot replaces, earlier -m and may be derived from it, like 
-£t from -rji (see 39). But in general -ot is rather the original locative (cf. 
oiKot) in use as the dative. In some dialects the history of the dative is 
obscure, owing to the lack of early mateHal or the ambiguity of -01 in 
the pre-Ionic alphabets. 

, 3. NOM. Pl. -ot (Boeot. -oe, -v, 30). 

4. Dat. Pl. -oia-i(v), as in Homer, in early Attic, Ionic, where 
it lasts somewhat longer than in Attic (but some early examples 
of -ot?, especially in West Ionic), and Lesbian (but here always 
T019). — Elsewhere only -ot? (Boeot. -v?, -et?, Elean -oip). 

5. Ace. Pl. -01'?, with the same development as -av<;. See 78, 

6. Gen. Dat. Dual, -ouv as in Homer, whence -oiv in most 
dialects in which the form occurs at all. — Elean -oiok, -oioip, 
after the analogy of the dative plural, as Swotot?, airoioip. 

Consonant Steins in General 
107. 1. Ace. Sg. -av in place of the usual -a, with 2; added after 
the analogy of vowel stems, occurs in Cypr. Ijarepav, a(v)Spijd{v)- 
rav, Thess. Kiovav, El. a'yaXp.aToj>5spav (but possibly -(fxopdv from 
nom. -^topa?), and among late inscriptions of various dialects. 

2. Nom. Pl. -ev for usual -e? occurs in late Cretan, having 
originated in pronominal forms. See 119.2 a. 

3. Dat. Pl. -eaai, as in Horn. TroSeercn, probably an extension of 
the form of o--stems, is characteristic of the Aeolic dialects, Les- 
bian, Thessalian (Pelasgiotis), and Boeotian, and is also found in 
early Delphian, East Locrian, Elean (cjivydSea-a-i no. 60 ; elsewhere 
-ot?), and in inscriptions of various Corinthian colonies (Corcyra, 

108] mrLECTION • 83 

Epidamnus, Syracuse). — Heraclean has -aaai in pres. part. evTaa- 
a-iv (perhaps originally *aa-(7i. = Skt. satsu, then evraa-a-i by fusion 

with ei'T- of evTei etc.), irpaa-aovTaaai, etc. oi'i, as Travrot? etc., 

after the analogy of o-stems, is characteristic of Locrian, Elean, 
and the Northwest Greek Koivrj, whence it finds its way iato 
various dialects in later times. 

4. Ace. Pl. -69 in place of -as, i.e. the nom. for the ace, per- 
haps first used in the numeral rerope? owiug to the influence of 
the indeclinable irevTe etc., is seen in Delph. heKareropei (no. 49, 
early fifth century), reropes, SeX^iSe? (in an inscription of early 
fourth century ; but otherwise in Delphian only TeTopa<! etc.), and 
regularly ia Elean ([Tero/aje?, sixth century, irXeCovep, ■^^dpiTep, 
no. 61, etc.) and Achaean (iXda-a-ove'i, Safiocno<f>vX,aKe<;, etc.), also 
in the very late inscriptions of various dialects, even Attic. 

-av<:, after the analogy of a-stems, in Cretan, e.g. OvyaTepavs, 
a-Taripav;, etc. 


108. 1. All dialects except Attic have the uncontracted forms. 
Gen. sg. in most dialects -eo?, whence -to? in Boeotian, Cretan, etc. 
(9), -€v? in later Ionic, Ehodian, etc. (42.5). — Ace. sg. masc. and 
ace. pl. neut. -ea, whence -la (9), occasionally »? (42.1). 

a. Proper names in -kXci^s, -kX^s. Cypr. -KXe/res, whence -icXei^ in Attic 
(beside -kA^s), Boeotian (-xXres, -KA.t7s) till about 400 B.C., and regularly 
in Euboean (gen. -Kkim, 2), but in the other dialects regularly -kX^s- Gen. 
sg. Cypr. -nXipttK, Boeot. -kXcios (= Horn. -kX^os, cf. 16), Att. -kXeous, but 
in most dialects -icAeos. 

For names in -icXeas instead of -likeifi, see 166.1. 

2. Proper names often have forms which are modeled after the 
analogy of the masc. a-stems, and this not only in Attic-Ionic 
(e.g. Att. 1,a>KpdTT]v, ^coKparov, Eretr. gen. EvKpaTco, TifioKXew), 
where the agreement in the nom. -rj<; was especially favorable to 
this, but also in the other dialects. Thus ace. sg. in -fjv {-rjv : -779 = 
-dv: -as), e.g. Boeot. AafioreXeiv etc.. Arc. ^iXokX^v, and even in 
appellatives in Lesb. SajJLOTeXrjv etc., Cypr. itreXev. — Dat. sg. in 


-jjt, Lesb. KaX\UXr]i. — Gen. sg. in -v (like -d) in Lesb. @eoyepv 
etc. ; also, perhaps, -??? (like -a?, 105.2 I) in Thess. 'liriTOKpdTet'i 
(or nom. for gen. by mistake ?), ^epeKpdre'; (no. 33 ; or ^epeKpa- 
xe(o)? ?). — Voc. sg. in -rj (like -a) in Arc. 'AreXrj etc., Delph. 

The numerous Boeotian hypocoristic names in -ei as Mevvei, 
^iWei, @dX\ei, Bevvei, are also best understood as vocatives of 
this type used as nominatives. They correspond to names in -i;?, 
-7]To<;, in other dialects, but in Boeotian follow the analogy of 
(T-stems (gen. sg. -tos, ace. sg. -eiv). 


109. 1. In all dialects except Attic-Ionic, and, for the most 
part, in Ionic too, the regular type of declension is that with t 
throughout, namely -ts, -to?, -I, -iv, -tes, -icov, -uri, -is (Gret. -tz/?) or 
-ia<i (rare). 

2. The type in -t?, -eoj? (from -r)o<i, as in Homer), -ei, pi. -et?, etc. 
is almost exclusively Attic. In Ionic TroXem? occurs in early in- 
scriptions of Chios (no. 4) and Thasos, and Swdp^i in Teos (no. 3). 
But otherwise in Ionic, and always in other dialects, forms of this 
type are late and to be attributed to Attic influence. In general, 
the Attic datives, -et and -eai, are the first to be adopted, next the 
nom.-acc. pi. -eis, and lastly the gen. sg. -ea><;. Thus in the later 
inscriptions of many dialects it is common to find gen. sg. -io<;, but 
dat. sg. -ei. 

A gen. sg. TTo'Xeo? is found in the Koivrj, and in later inscriptions 
of various dialects. 

3. Lesbian has a nom. pi. -Z? (Trb'Xt?, no. 21), perhaps the ac- 
cusative used as nominative. 

4. Cyprian has such forms as gen. sg. Tifioxapipo^, dat. sg. 
iTToXipt. The p is certainly not original here, and is perhaps due 
to the analogy of v- and 9;u-stems (gen. -vfo^, -ipoi). 

5. A transfer to the type -ts, -tSo?, as frequently in Attic, is 
characteristic of Euboean proper names in -t?, as ArjfjLO')(dpiSo^. 



110. Nearly all the iuscriptional forms occurring are the usual 
ones of the type -u?, -vo?. Boeot. [f]dano<; (i from e, 9) agrees 
with the dareoi of non-Attic literature. For vti5? see 112.2. 

Nouns in -£us 

111. The stem is t]v, rjf throughout, nom. sg. -eu? (from -tjw, cf. 
37.1), gen. sg.^-jj/ros, etc. 

1. The original forms in -7?fo?, -Tjfi, etc. are preserved, with or 
without the f, in Cyprian (;8a«riXef 09, 'ESaXtl/rt, 'ESaXte/res), Les- 
bian (^aa-i\rjo<; etc.), Boeotian (IlToiepL, ypafinaTetoi}, etc.), Thes- 
salian (/Qao-tXeto? etc.), and Elean (ySao-tXae?), as also in Homer. 

2. Attic only are /Sao-tXeo)?, ^aaiXed, with quantitative metathe- 
sis. But from the beginning of koivi^ influence 0aai\.€a)<; is one of 
the Attic forms most widely adopted by other dialects. 

3. Most dialects, namely Ionic and the West Greek dialects ex- 
cept Elean, have /3acrt\eo9, ^acriXel, etc., with shortening of the rj. 
Generally these are the forms of even the earliest inscriptions 
(Cret. foiK€o<; etc.), but we find Coan teprji, TloXifji, etc. (no. 101, 
which has also 'AX/cTytSe? etc. ; later always iepel etc.), and once 
Ehod. 'ISa/i€Vrjo<; (cf. TlovTooprjiSo';). Beside -eo? sometimes -eu? (cf. 
42.5),as Meg. lapds, but, owing to the confusion with the nominative, 
this spelling is far less common than in the genitive of o--stems. 

Ace. Sg. -ea in Ionic, Locrian, Cret^an. But in Delphian and 
most of the Doric dialects -ij (see 42.1, 43) is the regular form, e.g. 
Delph. te/ji}, /3acn\rj, Lac. ^acnXri, Mess, iepri, Meg. ieprj, Mycen. 
Hepae (no. 76, fifth century), Arg. ^aaiXrj, Ehod. ^aa-tXrj, rypafi- 
fiarfj, Coan jSaa-iXrj, etc. In these dialects -ea is of later occur- 
rence, and due to koivt] influence. 

Nom. Pl. -ee? in Cretan (e.g. Sjoo/aees) and elsewhere, but usu- 
ally contracted to -eli. Also -jj? (in part at least directly from -^es) 
in early Attic, Coan (reTajOTTj?), Laconian {Meyape<i etc., no. 64), 
and Arcadian {Mavnvi)<;). At Cyrene occurs nom. and ace. pL 


Ace. Pl. -ea<! in Ionic and Doric (Cret. Spofieav;, cf. 107.4), 
when not replaced by -ei<s of the koiv-i]. 

4. Arcadian has nom. sg. in -?;?, as lep7]<;, rypa(f)i]<;, ^ove<; (Cyprian 
also once ye/sl?, but usually -ev?), ace. sg. hiepe v (cf . 108.2), nom. pl. 
'M.avnvrj';. Some proper names in-?j? = -ev? are also found elsewhere. 

5. In Miletus and colonies occurs nom. sg. I'epeeos, gen. sg. lepeat, 
likewise at Ephesus gen. sg. <E>\e«t) belonging to <I>\eu?. 

Some Irregular Nouns 

112. 1. Zew. Zew or Aev? (84). A((f)o'?, At(/r)t (also Atet, of 
uncertain origin, in an inscription of Corcyra and one of Dodona ; 
cf. Att. AieiTpe<j>rj<;, Cypr. Aipei6efiK), Ai(p)a, in most dialects. But 
also in various dialects (attested for East Ion., Coan, Ther., Cret., 
El.), as in Homer, Ztjvo';, Zrjvi, Zrjpa (Cret. Afjva, Trjva, etc., 37.1). 
Late forms with a are hyper-Doric. 

2. vlo'i, viv<i. Aside from the o-stem forms, the inscriptional 
occurrences are as follows, mostly from a stem viv-: 

Nom. Sg. vw? Cret., Lac, Att. (Att. also vv<i, us). 

Gen. Sg. uteos Cret., Att. ; Thess. Auto? (no. 33). 

Dat. Sg. vlel ArgoL, Phoc, Att. 

Ace. Sg. vivv Arc, Cret., Locr., etc. 

Nom. Pl. utVes Cret. (as in Hom.) ; Att. vleh. 

Dat. Pl. vicun Cret. (as in Horn.), after analogy of iraTpaxn etc. 

Aco. Pl. vlvvf Arg., Cret. ; Att. vlel';. 

3. fi'qv. Stem *p,7)vc7- (cf. Lat. mensis), whence (77.1) Lesb. 
p,rivvo<s, Thess. fieivv6<;, Att. etc. iJLrjv6<;. The nom. */jli^v<; became 
*/aei's (vowel-shortening before- v + cons., but later than the assim- 
ilation of medial va), whence regularly (78) Ion., Corcyr., Meg. 
fiek, Heracl. /^?j?. In Attic, /xet? was replaced by /jltjv formed after 
the analogy of original v-stems m -rjv, -rjvo<;. Elean fi€v<s is perhaps 
due to the analogy of Zeu?, Zt]v6<; (above, 1). 

4. \a?, Hom. \da<;. Originally a neuter o--stem to \da<!, becom- 
ing 6 \ao9, o Xa9, after the analogy of o \i6o<; etc Hence in geni- 
tive beside Xao? also Att. Xaov (Soph.), Cret. \a6. 


5. Cret. f rj/ia nom.-acc. sg. = e^yiia, but gen. sg. ra? prjiiofs from 
a stem in -fia. So also Cret. *afi<^Lhr)fjia, ornament (cf. StdBrj/jia), 
but gen. sg. a/jbiriBT^fian. 

6. x°^'>> which in Attic is declined as a consonant stem (gen. 
sg. xoo'f); is properly a contracted o-stem (from x°F°-) like TrXoO?, 
and remains so in Ionic, e.g. ace. sg. X"^^} g^n. pi. x^^- 

7- Xe'P. XW- See 27 6, 79. 

Comparison of Adjectives 

113. 1. Beside /ieifft)!' and K/oetTTtoi', both with anomalous et, we 
find the normal fie^mv (from *iMeyia)v) in Ionic and Arcadian, and 
Kpeaaav (from *KpeTia>v) in Ionic. For Dor. Kappwv, Cret. «a/3- 
T<ov (both from *Kdpria)v) see 49.2 with a, 80, 81. 

2. Beside TrXe'tai', pi. TrXeove?, ir-stem forms, like Horn. TrXe'e?, 
7r\e'a9, occur in Lesbian (-TrXewi no. 21) and Cretan (e.g. Gortyn. 
TrXies, ifKiav^, ifKia, beside ttXlovo^, irXiova, ifKiov. ifklacriv, Dre- 
ros, is in origin a I'-stem form, cf. 77.1 a). Cf. also Arc. ttXo? (from 
*7r\eo?, cf. 42.5 d) adv. = irXeov. 

Heracl. TroXtcrTo? = TrXeto-ros is formed directly from ttoXu?. 

3. El., Lac. a(a-)(Ti(TTa (also in Aesch.) = a7jj;to-Ta, is formed 
from the compar. aatrov (this regularly from *d<yxi.°'')- 

Cardinals and Ordinals 

114. 1-10. 1. Nom. sg. masc. Att. etc. eh, Heracl. 979 (cf. Lac. 
ov8i<s), Cret. eV? {evS S- = evs S-, Law-Code IX. 50 ; see 97.4), from 
*evs. Cf. 78. — Fem. fiia, but, of different origin, Lesb., Thess. i'a, 
as in Homer. Also mase. to? (cf. Hom. dat. sg. neut. la>) in Cretan, 
but with pronominal force = e/eeti'o?. [Boeot. la now in Corinna.] 

Att. etc. ■n-pSiTO';, West Greek and Boeot. irpdro';. The source of 
irpdro^ is uncertain (not *-7rp6aTO';, cf. 44.1). 

2. Svo (Boeot. Siovo, 24) in aU dialects. Lac. once Sve with the 
ending of consonant stems.— Sveiv = Bvolv in late Att. and koivi^.

3. Att. etc. T/aet?, Cret. r/see?, Ther. t/st}?, froiji *T/3«e?. See 25, 
45.5. — Ace. T/ot9, Cret. t/>ui'? (for t/jiV? with t introduced anew 
from rpiSiv etc.). Under the influence of the indeclinable numerals, 
the nominative or the accusative is used for both cases in some 
dialects, namely nom. r/jet? in ^Attic and elsewhere, and ace. r/at? in 
Boeotian, Heraclean, Delphian, Troezenian, and perhaps in Lesbian. 

TpiTo^, Lesb. repro^ (18). 

4. Att. TeTTa/aes, Ion., Arc. reacrepe'i (also Teacrape; in Ionic and 
Koivrj), Boeot. ireTrape'i, Lesb. ■jreaavpe'i (Horn. Triavpei), West 
Greek TeTope<;. From *qTi'etuer- (cf. Lat. quattuor, Skt. catvdras), 
the differences being due to inherited variations in the second 
syllable {tuer, tuor, tur, tur), and to the divergent development of 
gM (68) and tu (54 e, 81). 

TeTapro<;, Hom. TeV/aaTo?, Boeot. Trerparo';. See 49.2 a.

Arcadian (no occurrence in Cyprian), but fUari, ikutl {I, cf. Ther. 
hiKaSi, no. 107; for h see 58 c) in West Greek with Boeotian and 
Thessalian, with t not et, and t retained (61). The ei of Heracl. 
feiKan beside pUari is due to the influence of Att. eiKoai. — 
Att. etc. TpiaKovra, Ion. rpii^Kovra. — TerrapaKOVTa, reaaepaKovra, 
Tea-a-apaKovra, TreTTapuKovra (see 114.4), Delph., Corcyr., Heracl. 
reTpatKovra (so doubtless in all "West Greek dialects previous to 
Attic influence). — TrevrriKovTa, e^ijKOvra {pe^rjKOVTo), etc., with tj 
in all dialects (but Ion. o'ySaiKovTa, 44.2). — '■ Delph,, Heracl. he^Se- 
fiiJKOVTa, Heracl. hoySon]Kovra, hevevijKovTa. See 114.7-9. — Gen. 
Tea<T[ep']aK6vTO)v, "TrevT-qKovToav, etc. in Chios, where the use of such 
inflected genitives (also SeKcov) is one of the Aeolic features of the 
dialect (cf. Trefiireav, Sexav in Alcaeus, also rpirjKovrwv in Hesiod). 

Att., Ion. etKocTTo? etc., Boeot. fixaa-To^ {-KacrT6<; doubtless in all 
West Greek dialects also ; but Thess. Ikoo-to's), Lesb. et/cota-ro?, rpid- 
Koia-TO<;, i^i]KOia-TO<;). 

a. The earliest form of the ordinals is that in -kootos (from -kmt-to-, 
cf. Skt. trihfat-tama- etc.). Under the influence of the cardinals in -Kovra 
this became -koo-to'; in Attic etc.; in Lesbian, under the same influence, 
*-KovoTos, -whence -koujtik (cf. 77.3, 78). To the same analogy is due 
the o of a.K(Kn, and of the hundreds in -koctioi (e.g. rpiaKoa-ioi after' rptaKovra), 
instead of the more original a in pUaTi (Skt. vihfati-, Lat. vigintl), -Kanoi, 
-Kacrioi (cf. e/cardv, Skt. fatam, Lat. centum). It is possible that a still further 
extension of this analogical o is to be assumed in explanation of Arc. 
hcKOTOv, Arc, Lesb. Sckotos, Arc. 84ko, Lesb. tvoros. 

117. 1. 100. Att. etc. eKarov, Arc. heKorov. See 6, 116 a. 

2. 200-90Q. Att.-Ion., Lesb. -Koa-ioi, West Greek, Boeot. (and 
doubtless Thess.) -kcitioi. Arc. -Kacnoi (with East Greek a, but 
West Greek a). See 61.2, 116 a. 


The a of TpLCLKoaioi. {Ion. rpivcoaioi) is extended to Simcocnoi 
(Ion. ScrjKoaioi.), and the a of TerpaKoaioi, e-n-TaKoaioi, evaicoaiot. to 
irevTaKoatoi, iJ^aKoaioi, oKTUKoaioi (but Lesb. oktcokoo-ioi). 

3. 1000. Att. x'>-">' from *x«J-Xtot, but Ion. xe''A.toi, Lac. x^Xtot, 
Lesb., Thess. j(;eXXiot, from *xea^\i'Oi. See 76. 

Personal Pronouns ' 

118. Singular. 1. The stems, except in the nominative, begin 
with : 1. e/A- or /u.-. — 2. original tu, whence East Greek a-, "West > 
Greek t- {Teo<;, riv, re). But enclitic rot is from a form without u 
(cf. Skt. fe), and occurs also in Ionic (Horn., Hdt., etc.). Horn, reolo 
and reiV are from the possessive stem teuo- (120.2). — 3. original 
su, whence p- in some dialects {feo<;, poi, flv), otherwise '. 

2. NoM. 6706, e^div (Boeot. tw, Iwv, 62.3). — Att.-Ion., Lesb., Arc. 
(7v, Dor. TV, Boeot. tov. See 61.6. 

3. Gen. a. -eio (Horn, ifieio etc. like tolo), whence -eo, later 
Ion. -ev, Att. -ou. — &. -eo? in West Greek, as lit. Dor. e/xe'o?, reo?, 
Locr. f eo9. — c. -0ei', as lit. Dor. ifieSev, Epid. e^ei'. 

4. Dat. a. -ot, as ifxoi, jjlol, aoi, croi (lit. Dor. rot' rot, lit. Ion. 
Tot), ol, ot (Arg., Cret., Delph., Cypr., Lesb. /rot). — 6. -tv in West 
Greek (where also -01, but mostly in the enclitic forms, as fJLoi, 
never ifioi, poi, ol, and rot, though also rot'), as Cret., Calymn., 
Ehod., Delph., and lit. Dor. efiiv, lit. Dor. tCv, Cret. piv. 

5. Ace. 1. e'/ite, /^e. — 2. Att.-Ion., Lesb. o-e, lit. Dor. re (Cret. 
Tfc, written rpe, in Hesych.); also lit. Dor. and Epid. tv (nom. 
used as ace). — 3. e (fe); also lit. Dor. and Epid. vCv. 

119. Plural. 1. The forms of the first and second persons con- 
tain, apart from the endings, aa-fi- (cf. Skt. asmdn etc.) and uo-ju.- (cf. 
Skt. yusmdn etc.), whence Lesb., Thess. a/i/^-, Lesb. v/ti/i-, elsewhere 

1 As the personal pronouns, especially in the singular, are of comparatively 
rare occurrence in inscriptions, some forms are added which are quotable only 
from literary sources, — but only a few out of the great variety, for which see 
Kiihner-Blass I, pp. 580 ft. 


a/i- (Att.-Ion. rittr) or a/A-, vfx,-. See 76, and, for the spiritus asper 
or lenis in the first person, 57, 58 6. 

2. NoM. -€S in aU dialects except Attic-Ionic, where it was 
replaced by -et?. Lesb. a/i/xe?, u/i^e?, Dor. etc. o/ie?, i/xe?. 

a. In late Cretan a/ies was frequently replaced by d/iiei/ under the influ- 
ence of 1 pi. verbal forms in which Dor. -;u.£s was often replaced by the KotviJ 
-/lev. That is, aft-iv for d/u.€'s after ^ipoiixv for ^ipofxjei. From d/xei', -ev was 
extended to other pronouns and to participles, as ^jucv, tivcv, dKoixravrei;, etc. 

3. Gex. -etwr (Horn. ■rjiieCwv), whence -etov, -uov (9), -Siv. Lesb. 
afip,€(ov, Thess. afifieovv. El. afieav, Dor. afiecov, a/iicov (Cret.), 
later dfiav. 

4. Dat. -t(i'). Lesb. dufuv, dfifii, etc.. Dor. a/niV, ir/iti/, Att.-Ion. 
^/ity, vfuv. So Dor. o-^ti', <r<^t, but Att.-Ion. a-^icri, Arc. a^ei<i, the 
latter not satisfactorily explained. 

5. Ace. -e in all dialects except Attic-Ionic, where it was re- 
placed by-ea9,-a9. Lesb., d/ifie, vfifj-e, Thess. dfifie, Dor. etc. dfie, vfie. 


120. 1. iiju)<i. — PL Dor. etc. dfi6<; (Lesb. d/j,fio<;) and a/xeVe/ao? 
(Lesb. afiixerepo';, Att.-Ion. 57/ierepo9). 

2. a. tuo-, Att. etc. cro'i?. 6. teuo-, Dor., Lesb. reo'?, Boeot. rto? (all 
in literature only). Both forms in Homer. — PI. v/xoV and vfj.eTepo<i. 

3. a. SUO-, Att. etc. 09, Cret. /roV. 6. seuo-, Dor. (lit.), Thess. eoV. 
Both forms in Homer. — PI. a^6^ and a-<f>eT€po^. 

Reflexive Pronouns 

121. Aside from the reflexive use of the forms of the personal 
pronouns as given in 118, 119, especially that of the third person 
which is itself a reflexive in origin, various forms of expression are 
employed, as follows : 

1. Combinations of the personal pronouns with avT6<;, each keep- 
ing its own inflection, as in Homer (a-ol avrai etc.). So Cret. piv 
avrSi = eavra. Cf. also, with the possessive, Cret. ra pa auras = 
TO, eavTT]';. 



2. Compounds of the same elements, with contraction, leaving 

only the second part declined. Att. i^iavrov, aeavTov or aavTov, 
eaVTOv or avrov (also late earov, drav, with a from dv ; Coan tjvt&v 
with 7] from ea ; Thess. euTot, evrov). Ion. (lit.) ifiecovTOv etc. The 
forms found in Ionic inscriptions are like the Attic, and probably 
are Attic. 

3. avToi alone, as sometimes in Homer. Thus Delph. avrov = 
ifiavTov (SGDI. 2501.4), El. avrap = eavrrj'; (no. 61.17), Lac. avrS 
= eavTov (no. 66). 

4. avTo? aiiTO'i, either with each declined separately, or, oftener, 
merged into compounds of somewhat varying form. 

This combination is comparatively late, replacing the earlier 
types mentioned under 1 and 3. It is most frequent in Delphian and 
Boeotian, but is found in several of the other West Greek dialects, 
and probably even in Attic (Kiihner-Blass I, p. 600, anm. 5). 

a. avros a^Tss. Delph. avroi TrortaiTous, Boeot. xar'airii (= airoi) avroii'. 

b. avTocravTos. Delph. avTocravTov etc., Boeot. {nrip avrocravtii), Heracl. 
fitT airrocravTlov, Cret. aiTotravTois, etc. 

c. averavTos. Delph. aixravrov etc., Boeot. ava'avrutv, Cret. avcratiTaSi 
Argol. (Calauria) avo-auTas. 

d. dcravTos. Boeot. derauTv (late). 

e. avo'WTO's. Delph. aicrwras etc. See 33 a. 

f. avrauTos. Heracl. a.vra.vTo.% (as in Sophron and Epicharmus), Aegin. 

g. Sicil. gen. sg. airoira (Segesta), gen. pi. avriivra (Thermae). Prob- 
ably from avraTov, avTarSiv (cf. late earoij, above, 2), with transposition of 
the last two syllables. 

Demonstrative Pronouns 

122, The article. Nom. pi. rot', tui, as in Homer, in the West 
Greek dialects except Cretan, and in Boeotian. Att. etc. oi, ai, after 
the analogy of o, fj. For o, a in some dialects which in general 
have ', see 58 a. 

Forms with added i, used like ohe, are found in Elean (ro-i, ra-i) 
and Boeotian (rav-i, toi-i, tv-i). 

For the relative use, see 126. 


123. Thess. o-ve, Arc. o-vi, Arc.-Cypr. S-vv, = 6Be. Thess. rove, 
reive, and, with both parts inflected (cf. Horn. Tota-Secn), gen. sg. 
Toti/eos, gen. pi. Tovvveow. — Arc. roovC (gen. sg.), Toivi, etc. Cf. also 
Boeot. TrpoTTjvi (136.1). — Cypr. ovv, Arc. raw, tovvv, also (late)' 
rdvvvv, Toavvv. Cf. Horn., Boeot., Cypr. vv. 

124. 0VT09. Nom. pi. roOrot, ravrai, like to(, rai, in West Greek 
(examples from Cos, Delphi, Ehodes, Selinus). Att. etc. ovroi, avrai, 
after ovtov etc. Boeotian, with t replaced by ' throughout, ovrov, 
ovTcov, etc. — Interchange of av and ov. Att. gen. pi. fern, tovtwv 
after masc, neut. ; vice versa El. neut. tuvtcov, due to influence of 
Tavra. ov throughout is Boeotian (ovto, ovto) and Euboean {tovtu, 
rovret, also ivTOvOa = ivravda). So also Delph. rovra, rovTa<; (but 
also TavTai). For the spelling with instead of OV, see 34 a. 

125. 1. iKelvo<;. Ion. Keivo's, Lesb., Cret., Ehod., Coan Kfjvo<;, both 
from *Ke-evov. Cf. 25 with a. — Trjvo';, of different origin (*Te-ei'09), 
in Delphian, Heraclean, Argolic (Aegina), Megarian, as well as in 
Sicilian Doric writers (Theocr., Sophron, Epicharmus). 

2. aiT6<;. Neut. avrov in Cretan, as sometimes in Attic inscrip- 

Relative, Interrogative, and Indefinite Pronouns 

126. The relative o? occurs in all dialects. But the relative use 
of forms of the article, frequent in Homer and Herodotus, is usual 
in Lesbian (so always in the earlier inscriptions and nearly always 
in Alcaeus and Sappho; o? in later inscriptions is due to koivij 
influence, as shown by the spiritus asper, kuO' oy, etc.), Thessalian 
(rd, KaTTairep, but also o? in an early metrical inscription), and 
Arcado-Cyprian (Arc. o-jrep, rai, rol'i, etc., Cypr. o, tov, etc., but also 
Arc. dv, Cypr. oi, oi). So also in Boeotian in a fourth-century in- 
scription (no. 41), but later only 09 (cf. Lesbian). It is also Hera- 
clean (tov, rd, etc. ; so often in Epicharmus), but in most West 
Greek dialects it occurs, if at all, only in later inscriptions (so in 
late Delphian and Cretan, never in the earlier period). 

For the demonstrative .use of o?, cf. Heracl. at fiev . . . Si Se 


127. Cret. orepo-;, which of two, is the true relative correlative of 
■n-oTepo-! (cf. Skt. yataras- beside kataras), and so related to the 
usual oTTOTe/oo? as otos to oirolo^, ore to mroTe. 

128. Ti9, Ti?. Cypr. at';, Arc. ffi?, see 68.3, Thess. nk, Kt? (/cti'e?), 
see 68.4. Cret. dat. sg. tIixl, m. oTifii = orivi, and fi-^Sifii = fj-ijTivi, 
from *Ti-aiu with the same pronominal sm as in Skt. kasmin, • 
kasmdi, Umbr. pusme, esmei, etc. — Meg. (Ar.) ad = Tiva from *Tta, 
cf . Att.-Ion. cLTTa, aaaa from *aTta. 

129. The indefinite relative oarK;, otk. 

1. offTK, with both parts declined, in various dialects, e.g. Locr. 
hoinve'i, Cret. ol'rti'es, Boeot. mariva';. 

2. oTt?, with only the second part declined, in various dialects, 
e.g. Delph. ortvo?, otivl, Cret. orifii (128). Lesb. otti, regularly from 
*6B-TL, and by analogy oTTtre? etc. Cf. also Lesb. oinraxi, oirira, etc. 
La all other dialects the double consonants are simplified, presum- 
ably under the influence of the simple rt? etc. 

a. On account of Locr. /roTi (no. 56) it is generally assumed that the first 
part of OTIS is not from a form of the relative stem seen in os, oerris, which 
was originally jp- (Stt. ya-') , but a generalizing particle o-f o8, related in form 
and use to the so in Eng. whoso, whosoever (Old Eng. swa hwa swa). But so 
long as the one occurrence of Locr. port is the only example of a form with 
f (even the other early Locrian inscription, no. 55, has Adrt), there is decid- 
edly a possibility that this is only an error. 

3. Neuter forms in -ti, with only the first part declined, in Cre- 
tan, e.g. an = driva, on i.e. Sn = ovnvo^. 

130. Cret. 6Teio<; = ottoioi;, but used hke adjectival o(Tn<;, as 
oreto? Se Ka K6a-fio<; firj jSepSrji, yvvd oreia Kpe/jbara fie exei, oreiai 
Se (sc. yvvaiKi) irpodff eSoKe. For the form (also Hesych. Teiov ■ 
TToiov, KpTjre?), cf. Horn, reo, reo), etc. 

131. Interrogative pronouns used as indefinite relatives. So regu- 
larly in Thessalian, e.g. /ci's ke 'yivveiTei = oo-rts dv yiyvrjrai, Sie ki (in 
form Sid Ti) = Sto'rt, ttok ki (in form irpo'i ti) = on, <f>vXd<} Trotas kc 
ySeWetret = (^wXtj? ottoiIi? (^crrtvo?) dv fiovXrjTai. Elsewhere the 
use of Tt'? = oo-Tt? is, with some rare exceptions in literature, found 
only in late Greek. In Cypr. oiri ai<; Ke = oa-n<; av, the indefinite rela- 
tive force is given by the oVt, an adverbial form of obscure formation. 


Pronominal Adverbs and Conjunctions of Place, Time, and Manner 
132. 1. -ov. Place where. Att.-Ion. ttov, oirov, avrov, o/xov, etc. 
These are of genitive origin, and are specifically Attic-Ionic. 

2. -ei. Place where. These are the West Greek equivalents of 
the Attic-Ionic adverbs in -ov (above, 1), occurring in various Doric 
dialects, in Delphian, and in Boeotian, e.g. el, irel, irei (Cret. ai wei = 
eX TTOv), oirei, reiSe, Tovrel, rrjvel, avrel (Boeot. avri), aWei, dfiei, 
li-qhajxel, ovOufiei. Here also, by analogy, Heracl. worexei = irpoae- 
X&J?, and Delph. iirexei. The ending is of locative origin, and occurs 
even in Attic-Ionic in ixel (cf. also eVei). 

3. -Of. Place whither (also where), ol, irol, ottol, etc. in numer- 
ous dialects, as in Attic. With -?, Delph. 049. Cf. also Crop. tJxoi, 
where, formed from ^%{ (5 a). This ending, like -ec, is of locative ori- 
gin, and means simply ^Zace where (cf. oiicoi, 'la-ff/xol), but in these 
pronominal adverbs the prevailing force is whither. 

4. -VI. Place whither (also where). Cret. vt, oTrut, with -9, giving 
-VK or -U9, Ehod. vh, Arg. u9 {for whatever purpose), lit. Dor. irvi, 
Ehod. 07ru9. Cf. also Cret. ttXioi (to 7rXie9, 113.2), lit. Lesb. TvlSe, 
TTTjXvi, aXkvi, Delph. evSv<;. This type originated in *Trvi, ottvi, 
from the stem ttu- (I.E. qifi/^, cf. Skt. Icu-tas, whence, Osc. pu-f, where). 

5. -at (Att.-Ion. -7)1). Place where, whither, and especially maru- 
ner. Thus ai, irai, ottui how and where in various Doric dialects, in 
Delphian whither, Lesb. ^inra where, aXka elsewhere (a from -di, 
see 38), Cret., Corcyr. aXXat otherwise, Heracl. iravrac in all direc- 
tions. The indefinite ttui (cf. Corcyr. oWm irai in any other way) 
is used in Cyprian as a strengthening particle, anyhow, indeed (ko,'; 
Trai, and indeed, iSe irai, then indeed, no. 19.4,12). Cret. ol, oTrat 
are used in the sense of as, in whatever way, but also as final con- 
junctions, and at is also used as a temporal conjunction. 

a. Beside these dative-locative forms in -at there existed a type with 
original -a (Att.-Ion. -1;), probably of instrumental origin, to which belong 
Lac. ravTo. ha.T = ravrrj gre, in such a way as (no. 66), Dor. a^i, where (Etym. 


Magn., Hesych.) = Horn, ^x'- ^'^^^ particle -xt- But for the most part it is 
impossible to distinguish this from the commoner type in original -at, to 
which many forms in -d may equally well belong (as such we have reckoned 
Lesb. oTTira etc.). In Attic-Ionic there is the same ambiguity (the tradi- 
tional spelling varying between -y and 1;), with the added possibility that 
a given form (e.g. owrj, where) may belong under 6, below. 

6. -■»;. Place where and time when. Cret. 17, where, but usually 
when, oire, where and v}hen, Lac. AoVe, as, ire-'KOKa = irco-iTOTe, El. 
ravTe, [rJeSe, in this place, Meg. rlSe, aXke, here, elsewhere. Of this 
same formation are rj whether, Cypr. e = el (134.1), El. eire = eireC. 

7. -to. Place whence (Att.-Ion. -^ei'). Lit. Dor. (S, ttw, etc., Cret. 
o, OTTO, TwSe, Locr. ho, hoiro, Coan, Mess. tovtS). Similarly Delph. 
foiK<o,from the house. These are of ablative origin (I.E. -6d, cf. early 
Lat. -od, Skt. -dd). 

a. These adverbs are not to be confounded with another class, mostly 
from prepositions, meaning /)Zace where or whither and occurring in Attic- 
Ionic also, as av<i>, Kario, l^a), etc. To this belong Delph. tvSoi, within, Coan 
kKariput, on each side of (ci. iKacrripu)). 

b. Although probably all the West Greek dialects formed the pronominal 
adverbs of place whence in -u, forms like odiv being late, the -Oar appears in 
adverbs derived from place names, as Arg. 'iopaiOoOev, Corinth. TiepaioOev. 
Cf. also 133.1. 

8. -6)9. Manner, co?, tto)?, oTraj?, etc. in all dialects. 

a. Final conjunctions, ws and oirtos are the usual final conjunctions, and 
of these oirojs is by far the more frequent, though &s is not uncommon, 
especially in the earlier inscriptions. Early Cretan uses neither, but rather 
OTrai or, once, ai (above, 5). ha is rare, except in very late times. 

9. -re, -Ta, -ica. Time when, ore, rare, irore in Attic-Ionic and 
Arcado-Cyprian (Arc. tots, Cypr. ore, fieiroTe), ora, ttStu in Les- 
bian, oKa etc. in West Greek (and presumably Boeotian), e.g. Cret. 
oica, Toica, iroKa, Lac. TreTroica, El. toku, Delph. oxa, -voku. (oKKa, 
occurriug in Ehodian, Laconian, and literary Doric, is for oku «a.) 
Even Attic has -ra and -ku in some words, as etra, eireiTU (Ion. 
also eireiTe), •qvlKa. 

a. Temporal conjunctions. Besides ore. etc. and liru (above, 2), note the 
temporal use of Cret. ai, ^, oire (above, 5, 6). For so long as, until, we find 


1) lojs, as (41.4), 2) loTE, ei/TE (cf. 135.4), 3) Cret. /icerro (also prep, ixerrk), 
Arc. ixvtt', Thess. /u.eWo8t, Horn. jaaT</)a, all related, but of obscure forma- 
tion, 4) /J-ixph °-XP^> ^th and ■without oE, 5) eis o, e's o, 6) Boeot. iv toi' 
(cf. 136.1). 

Prepositional and Other Adverbs 

133. 1. -dev, -8e, -6a. In adverbs like irpoadev, Lesbian has 
usually -6e (nearly always in inscriptions ; in the lyric also -dev 
and -6a), while the West Greek dialects show -6a (which is also 
Attic in evda etc.), but also -6e, -6ev. Lesb. irpoade, evep6e, Dor. 
(gram.) irpoada etc., Heracl. ep,Trpoada, avmOa, Cret. irpodda (85.3), 
Delph. TTpoa-Ta (85.1), but also Meg. irpoade, Argol. ep-nrpoade, Cret. 
€vSo6ev. Cf. also Arc. irpocrdayevi^i;. 

2. -Se {-^e), -So. Arc. -Ba is seen in dvpSa (Hesych.) = 6vpa^e, 
and probably avoB' (no. 16.17) is avwSa. Cf. avadev, dvw6a. 

3. For Delph., Locr. ej(66<! = c/ero'?, see 66. Hence, after the anal- 
ogy of other adverbs in -o) (132.7 a) and -ot (132.8), Delph., Epid. 
ex6a), Epid. ex6oi. 

4. From ei'Sow are formed — besides Att.-Ion. evSo6ev (also 
Cretan), evBodi, Ion. evSoVe (Ceos) — Cret., Delph., Meg., Syrac. eVSo's 
(after ei/ro's), Delph. evSa, Lesb., Epid., Syrac. ewSot, Delph. evSw?. 

5. Beside e^ta (132.7 a) are formed, after the analogy of other 
adverbs, Lac. e^ei, Cret., Syrac. efot, Dor., Delph. e^o^ (after aero? 
etc., cf. ivSo'i). 

6. -49, -IV, -t. Forms with adverbial -? or -v sometimes inter- 
change with each other and with forms without either -s or -v, as 
the numeral adverbs in -kk, -klv, -kl. Thus in most dialects -Kts, 
sometimes -ki, but -kiv in Lac. rerpaKtv, hrraKiv, oKraKiv, Cret. 
6d6dKiv = 6adKi<i. Likewise -iv in other adverbs of time (cf. Att. 
irdXiv), as Cret. ainiv, Eheg. avOiv (Hdn.) = avTi,<;, av6K, avOi, 
Cret. avrap.epiv = av6r]p,epov. El. varapiv = vffrepov. Here also 
Thess. div beside Lesb. at (also aliv Hdn.), Ion. au' (also aihaap.o's, 
under perpetual lease) = usual ate?, ot'et, atVi/ (all from *at/ri, *at- 
/riV, *a4fe9, etc., cf. Cypr., Phoc. alpeC), while a corresponding form 
in -49 is to be seen in Cypr. iipak, forever, a combination hke Att. 


ets aei, containing i) = etri and ak from *alfi<s (omission of f pecu- 
liar, but cf. Trat?, 53). 

Cf. also Epid. avevv, El. avevf = avev (Meg. and late lit. avi<s is 
formed after xw/ot'?), Dor. efiirdv (Pindar) beside e>7ra? = efi-irTj<i, 
Coan, Rhod., Ther. e^av = e^fj<;. 

134. 1. The conditional conjunction, el in Attic-Ionic and Ar- 
cadian ; al in Lesbian, Thessalian, Boeotian (^), and all the West 
Greek dialects ; e (^) in Cyprian. 

a. ■^ in other dialects than Cyprian is ^mply whether, e. g. Heracl. Tab. 
(no. 74) 1.125. In Cretan there is no true conditional ^ beside at, as was 
once supposed, but rather a temporal ^, for which see 132.6. 

2. av, Ke, Ku. dv is only Attic-Ionic and Arcadian. In all other 
dialects the unrelated «e, /ca is used, — tee in Lesbian (also icev), 
Thessalian, and Cyprian, ku in the West Greek dialects and Boeotian. 

a. Arcadian once had kc, like Cyprian, and a relic of this is to be seen 
in the k which appears, where there would otherwise be hiatus, between d 
and a following av, which had regularly replaced k£ as a significant element 
(probably through prehistoric Ionic influence, cf. p. 7). Thus regularly ei 
K &v, or better tix av, since eik has become a mere by-form of « (like ovk 
beside oi), but « 8' av. Once, without av, cIk tTrt So/ua Trvp hroiai, where 
some assume a significant k in place of usual Sv, but best classed with the 
subjunctive clauses without av (174). 

h. In Attic-Ionic, ti combines with av, — in Attic to eav or dv, in Ionic 
to rjv- 

c. The substitution of d for al belongs to the earliest stage of Attic 
(Koarq) influence in the West Greek dialects, but that of av for xa only to 
the latest, being rarely found except where the dialect is almost wholly 
Koarfj. Hence the hybrid combination a ko. is the rule in the later inscrip- 
tions of most West Greek dialects. 

3. KaC. Arc-Cypr. wa? (also kol, for which see 97.2), the relation 
of which (as of the rare Cypr. kot') to icai is obscure. In Arcadian 
this occurs only in the early Mantinean inscription, no. 16, else- 
where Kai. See 275. 

4. he. Thessalian uses jxa, related to fiev, for 8e', e.g. to fik yfrd- 
^UTfia, TUfi fiefi lav . . . Ta/i /icL aWav (no. 28.22; rdv Be aXXav 
L 45 is due to koiv^ influence). 


5. vv, identical with -w in Arc.-Cypr. 6vv = oSe (123), and with 
Horn, vw, vv, occurs as an independent particle in Cyprian and 
Boeotian, e.g. Cypr. Svfdvoi vv, Bokoi vv, Boeot. aKovpv vv 'ev6a>. 

6. tSe, in form = Horn, the, occurs in Cyprian introducing the 
conclusion of a condition {IMirai then indeed, ISe then no. 19.12,25), 
or a new sentence (tSe and no. 19.26). 

Peculiarities in Form 

135. 1. For apocope of the final vowel, see 95. 

2. For assimilation of final consonants, see 96, 97, 99. — e? = 
e/e, 100. 

3. For 6v = avd, see 6. — Iv = iv, 10. — cnrv = utto, 22. — Karv 
= Kara., 22. — vTrd = vtto, formed after the analogy of Kara etc., in 
Elean (viraSvycoK) and Lesbian (gram.). 

4. iv, ek. The inherited use of iv with the accusative (cf. the 
use of Lat. in) is retained in the -Northwest Greek dialects (El., 
Locr., Phoc. ; but once e? in an early Delphian inscription, no. 50) 
together with Boeotian and ThessaHan, and in Arcado-Cyprian (Iv). 
Elsewhere this was replaced by an extended form iv-i, whence ets, 
e?. See 78. 

Similarly evre = eare in Locrian, Delphian (hevTe, 58 c), and the 
Northwest Greek koivi]. But Boeotian, in spite of iv, has erre 
= etrre. 

5. fJ.€Td, -TreSd. weSd, unrelated to fierd in origin, is used in its 
place in Lesbian, Boeotian (probably in Thessalian too, though not 
yet quotable). Arcadian (ttc, 95), Argolic, Cretan, and Theran. 
(Most of these dialects show also /lerd, but at a time when koiv^ 
influence is probable.) So also in compounds, as Cret. ireBexeiv, Arg. 
ireSdyayov, irehdpoiKoi = /leTOiKoi, ireSiov = neremv, and proper 
names, as Boeot. YlehdKOiv, Argol. IXeSa'/cptTo?. The name of the 
month HeSaryeiTWO';- or (by fusion of IleSa- and Mera-) Hera- 
j€iTWO<i (or -to?) = Att. MeTayeirvuov occurs in Ehodes, Cos, 


Calymna, Megara, Sicily, and Magna Graecia, where ireSd alone is 
not attested. 

6. •jrp6<!. There are two independent series of forms, one with 
and one without the p, each with variation between final -? and -n. 
1) Horn. TTjOOTi (cf. Skt. prati), Cret. Tropri (70.1), Att.-Ion., Lesb. 
TTjOo'?. Cf. also Pamph. irepT, I^esb. (gram.) Tr/ser. 2) itoti (cf. Avest. 
paHi) in the West Greek dialects (except Cretan) with Thessalian 
and Boeotian, Arc.-Cypr. 'jr6<i. 

a. Although the relation of tt/oos, ttos to irporC, irori can hardly be the 
same in origin as that of StStucrt to Si'SmTt (irpoa-C, iroari are unknown, and 
moreover the assumption of apocope is unlikely for Att.-Ion. tt/jos), and 
indeed is far from clear, yet, barring the appearance of irporri, ttoti beside 
irpds in Homer, the distribution of the t and cr forms is the same. See 61. 
But note that Trpds is universal in wpoa-Oa etc. (133.1). 

b. Another form, Trot, is most frequent in Argolic, where it occurs regu- 
larly before dentals, e.g. iroi tov Oeov, iroidip^v, iroiTa(Tuav (but irori^Xeipwi, 
irtrr avTov). There are also several examples in Delphian, all before dentals 
except TTOiKecjidXaun', and one each in Locrian, Corinthian, Cretan, and 
Boeotian (IIoiSikos, very likely an alien). 

Just how this Trot arose is uncertain. Of the various suggestions offered, 
the most plausible is perhaps, since with but few exceptions iroi' occurs only 
before dentals, that ttoti became wot through loss of t by dissimilation. 

7. aw, ^vv. ^vv, as in Homer, in early Attic, elsewhere avv. 
But Ion. ^vvo'i fromi *^w-to'?. Cypr. vyyep^o'; • avWa^'i] (Hesych.). 

8. Cypr. v = eTrl, e.g. v Tv%a = evrt rvy^r), ix^pov = eTriy^eipov. 
Probably cognate with Skt. ud, Engl, out (cf. va--Tepo<; = Skt. ut- 
taras). There are traces of the same prefix in a few Ehodian and 
Boeotian proper names. 

Peculiarities in Meaning and Construction 

136. 1. Dative instead of the usual genitive construction in 
Arcado-Cyprian. 1) airv. Arc. airv rat (sc. a/iepai), Cypr. airii rai 
^ai. — 2) e'|. Arc. e? rol epyoi, Cypr. e'^ tm ^ai. — 3) irepL Arc. 
wepl Toir-vl, Cypr. irepl TratSC — 4) virep. Arc. vTrep rat ra<i Tro'Xto? 
i\evdepiai. — 5) viro. Arc. irdvToov tS>v yeyovorcov evyvfo/Movav inrp 

136] INFLECTION 101 

ral iroXi. — 6) irapd. Arc. irapa rai ISiai ■ir6\i,from their own city. 
— 7) TTeBd. ire rot? foiKidTai[<;]. — 8) ivC iirl ie[pofivdfjLocri To]t?. 
e| with dative occurs also in Pamphylian ; -n-po with dative in 
Boeot. irpoTqvi, formerly, i.e. irpo rai-vi (sc. ajxepai. Cf. Thess. 
xnrirpo ray, sc. afiepa<;, just previously, no. 28.43, and Boeot. iv rdv, 
sc. a/iepav, until, no. 43.49). 

a. This growth, at the expense of the genitive, of the dative (locative) 
construction, which in the case of most of the above-mentioned prepositions 
was also an inherited one (cf. irepi, wro, etc. with dative), and its extension 
even to airv and ii, was probably furthered by the influence- of the most 
frequent locative construction, that with iv (tv). 

2. Trapd at, with, with accusative instead of dative. This is found 
in the Northwest Greek dialects, including Thessalian and Boeotian, 
and in Megarian and Laconian, e.g. Thess. rot m-ap' afifie TroXirevfia- 
Toi; (no. 28 ; corresponding to rov irap'vfilv iroXnevfiaTO'; of Philip's 
letter in the KOLvrj), Boeot. d crovyypacfyo'; Trap Yi<j>idSav, Delph. ira- 
pajxeivdrm he ^ikw irapa M.vaa-t^evov, El. -rreTroXiTevKoip Trap' ap-e. 

a. Much later, and rarely seen in dialect inscriptions, is the more gen- 
eral confusion between the dative with verbs of rest and the accusative with 
verbs of motion, and the final supremacy of the accusative construction, as 
ifuivav as tov mkov- 

3. TTjOo'?, by, in the sight of, with accusative instead of genitive, 
in Elean. ofioaavTei irbir) rov Oeov tov 'OXwinov, — on Sokcoi 
Ka(X)\iTepo<; ey^ev 7ro(T) rov Oedv,^ — peppev airov 7ro(T) rov Aia, 
he shall he jvdged guilty in the eyes of Zeus. In a later Elean 
inscription the same idea is expressed by (jtevyerco irbir) tm Aiop 
rmXvp.irim atfiarop, where both the genitive construction and the 
use of ^evyco instead of the genuine Elean peppco are concessions 
to Attic usage. This Elean use is only a step removed from that of 
7r/>o'?, in relation to, with accusative. 

4. El. dvev^ = dvev, with ace. instead of gen., as dvev; ^oXdv. 

5. Kard, according to, with genitive instead of accusative, in 
Locrian. Kaff cSv = kuB' d, — Ka(T) rovSe = Kara rdSe, — Ka(T) 
tSs ffwy/SoXas. 


6. eVtwith the dative of the deceased person, in epitaphs. This 
occurs in a few early epitaphs in Lesbian, Phocian, and Locrian, but 
is especially common in Boeotian, e.g. eTrt YheKaSdfioe efii, iirl '0«t- 
/Sae. In most dialects the name of the deceased appears in the 

7. afji,^i. In most dialects afi^i is obsolete. In the phrase ol 
afi^i nva, which survives also in Attic prose, it occurs in Argive 
and Ehodian ; in Argive also once in purely local force. In Cretan 
it is used freely in the meaning aboul^, concerning (as in Homer), 
with dative' or accusative, e.g. at Se k awl SdXoi fioXidvn, if they 
contend about a slave, — avirl rhv halaiv, about the division. 

8. avTi. Besides the usual meanings instead of, in return for, 
which are found everywhere, the following uses are worthy of note. 
1) The original local meaning, before, in front of, occurs in an 
Attic and in a Delphian inscription. So frequently Cret. avn fiai- 
Tvpov, in the presence of witnesses. 2) From the use of uvtI, in 
return for, with verbs of buying, selling, etc., arose a freer distribu- 
tive use, e.g. Arc. rpi? o^eko'i o<^\ev avrl peKaerTav, one shall pay a 
fine of three obols for each (wagon). So Delph. avrl /rereos (no. 
51 A 45) is probably /or each year, yearly (cf. Hesych. avrl fifjya- 
Kara firjva), though generally taken as in course of the yeair, in the 
same year (cf. Hesych. avTerow • rov aiiTov eVon?. AaKtoves) and 
explained otherwise. Coan avrl vvKr6<; (no. 101.43), during the 
night, though without distributive force is perhaps of the same 
origin. Cf. Hesych. av6' •^/lepa^ ■ Si o\r)<; ttJ? rffjJpa's. 

9. e|. An extension of the regular use of ef (or aTro) with the 
genitive to denote material and source, is seen in certain expres- 
sions of amount or value, e.g. Att. a-recfxivcoi airb ;)j;t\itBi/ Bpax/J-oiv, 
with a crown worth 1000 drachmas, — Ion. (7Te<\>avS)aai M.avcraw- 
\ov fxev eK SapeiKMV irevTijKOVTa, 'Aprefiia-irjv Se iic TpirjKovra 
SapeiKwv, crown Maussolus with a crown worth fifty darics, Arte- 
misia with one worth thirty, — Att. KpiO&v . . . •n-padeiaayv iic 
Tpi&v hpaxp-SiV Tov (lehifivov eicaaTov, barley purchased at three 
drachmas a medimnus, and even more freely Ther. irupSiv iy 

138j INFLECTION 103 

fiehijxvov kuI tcptO&v iy Svo jMehitivrnv, a medimnus of wheat and 
two of barley. 

10. Noteworthy combinations are Thess. vir-irpo, just before, and 
Arc. eTre? from iiri and e? = e^ (cf. uTre'/c, Ste/e, irapeK), meaning for 
and on occasion of, hence emphatic just for, in particular for. 

Augment and Reduplication 

137. Most peculiarities are such as are due to divergence in the 
form of contraction where a consonant has been lost (elj^oii or ri')(ov, 
cf. 25), or in the treatment of consonant groups, as Att. elXT]j>a, 
Phoc. elXd(j)ei, from *(7ea\d^a (76 h), but Ion., Epid. XeXd^rjKa 
after XeXonra etc. with original initial X, Arg. fefpifjJva, but Att.- 
lon. etpjjKa after forms like eiXr](}>a (55 a), Cret., El. eypa/Mfiai = <ye- 
ypa/ji/jLai, like Ion. eKTijiiai = Att. KeKTqfiai, eyvcoKa in all dialects. 
Note also Cret. i^rypaiMftai, with which compare rjOeXov, ■^^ovXofirjv. 

Active Personal Endings 

138. 1. Second singular. The original primary ending -si (Skt. 
-si) is preserved ia Hom., Syrac. icra-L, also in Epid. avvTiOrjai, and 
so perhaps regularly in West Greek dialects (inscriptional examples 
of the second singular are, naturally, very rare), the retention of 
intervocahc o- being due to the analogy of iaai. But in the East 
Greek dialects, where 3 sg. TiOrjn became TiOrja-i (61.1), Ti0rj<; etc., 
with secondary ending, were employed. 

Thematic ^e/aet? etc. in nearly all dialects, but there is some 
evidence of ^epe?, probably due to the secondary ec^epe?, in Cyprian 
(glosses of Hesych.) and Doric (Theocr. and gram.). 

Also -ada, starting from olada, rjaOa, with the original perfect 
ending -6a, is widely used in literary Lesbian and Doric, as in 
Homer (Ti9r}a-&a, ^dXoicrOa, etc.). 

2. Third singular. The original primary ending -ti (Skt. -ti) is 
preserved in "West Greek Tidrjn, BiBcori, etc., whence East Greek 
TidTjcri, SiScoa-i. See 61.1. Thematic (jjepei etc. in all dialects. 


3. First plural. West Greek -/^e? (of. Skt. -mas, Lat. -mus from 
■mos), originally the primary ending, — East Greek -jxev, originally 
the secondary ending. See 223 a. 

■; 4. Third plural, primary. "West Greek -vtl (Skt. -^ti), East Greek 
-(v)(ii. Thus, in thematic verbs, West Greek ^epovn, Boeot., Thess. 
(pepovdi (139.2), Arc. tpepovai, Lesb. (and Chian) <f>epoiai,, Att.-Ion. 
^epova-i. See 61.1, 77.3. 

So also in jtw-verbs. West Greek ivn, (fiavri, riOevri, SiSovn, 
whence Att.-Ion. elcri, <f)aa-i, Ion. (with the accent of contract forms, 
see 160) jidelcri, SiSovcrt. But Att. ndedai, SiSoacri, etc. represent 
a later formation, with -avri (^-dat) added to the final vowel of the 
stem, as also iu Boeot. perf. SeSoavdi. Of. Boeot. e6eav etc., below, 5. 

In the perfect the earliest type is that in -an (-nti, Skt. -ati in 
redupl. pres. dadhati), whence also -dcri. Thus Phoc. lepTjTevican, 
Delph. KaOea-Tciicari, Hom. ■7re(j>VKacn, Arc. [po](f)\eaa-i. But in most 
dialects this is replaced by -avri, as Cret. icrraXKaPTi, Att.-Ion. -dcri. 
Late inscriptions of various dialects have also the secondary -av, 
as Cret. earaXKav. 

5. Third plural, secondary, -v (from -nt) in e^epov etc. So also 
in the /ii-forms, as eOev, ehov, which are retained in most dialects, 
as in Homer. Likewise pass. eKvffev, iXeyev (from -i]vt, with regu- 
lar shortening), but also sometimes -tjv (with rj from the other per- 
sons), as Hom. pLidvdtjv, Cret., Epir. SieX^yrjV, Corcyr. ia-re<f>avd>0rjv, 
Delph. aireKvdrjv. 

But Attic-Ionic has edeaav, eSoaav, iXvdrja-av, etc., with -a-av 
taken over from the o--aorist, as also ^a-av, where most dialects have 
^v (163.3,4). Similarly -v is replaced by -av (also mainly after aorist 
forms like eXva-av or fjviKav) in Boeot. avedeav, avedeiav, avidiav 
(9.2), irapeiav (irapricrav), Cypr. KUTeOtjav (from KUTeOeav, cf. 9.3) ; 
and in Thessalian by -ev (an inherited ending seen in Hom. ^ev, or 
perhaps from -av, cf. 7, 27), as eSowaefi {eBcoKav), ovedeUaev (beside 
oV^deiKav), and, with diphthongal ai from ae, aveOeiKaiv, erd^aiv {ci. 
iScoKaiv, probably due to Thessalian influence, in a Delphian inscrip- 
tion), also once even in a thematic form, ivefavia-aoev = iveAdvi^ov, 

189] INFLECTION 105 

a. In the koivt^ the ending -aav spread even to thematic forms and to the 
optative, and such forms occur in late inscriptions of various dialects, e.g. 
Boeot. iXA^ocrav, Delph. €)(oiaav. 

6. Third dual, secondary. Att.-Ion. -rrjv, elsewhere -rdv, e.g. 
Boeot. avederav, Epid. avedyjicdTav. Similarly 1 sg. mid. Att.-Ion. 
-fi-qv, elsewhere -/^ai/. 

Middle Personal Endings 

139. 1. Third smgular. Primary -rat, Boeot. -jr) (26), Thess. 
-ret (27). Arcadian has -rot (perhaps also Cyprian, but not quot- 
able), due to the influence of the secondary -to (before its change 
to -TV), e.g. jevrjToi, Se'aroi, ^oXeroi. Cf. also 2 sg. Ketoi = Keia-ai, 
and 3 pi. -vtol is to be assumed, though not quotable. 

Secondary -to, Cypr. -tv (22). 

2. Third plural. Usually -vrai, -vto. But also -arai, -aro, mostly 
in the perfect and pluperfect after a consonant (e.g. yey pd(j)aTai), 
but also after a vowel in Boeotian (-adt], see below) ; and so regu- 
larly in Ionic in the perfect (e.g. Horn. ^e^X'^arai, later elpearai, 
contracted elpijTai), pluperfect, and optative, and even in untlie- 
matic presents and imperfects, e. g. TcOearat and also Swearat, lapve- 
arai, to SvvrjfjLi, KLpvrj/M (with suffix vd, weak va), after the analogy 
of Tidearai to riOrfixL. 

Boeotian and Thessalian have d in these endings, doubtless owing 
to the influence of -fieOa, -ade, and from these the 6 was extended 
to the third plural active endings. Thus : 

Middle. Boeot. ahitciwvOr) {-vrai), ia-TpoTeva6ij, fiefuadwadr} 
(-arai), i-n-oieiaavOo, a7reypd-s{ravdo, etc. Thess. iyevovOo, eiXovOo, 
and i<f)dvypevdeiv = etpatpovprai, ^iWovvQeiv = ^ovKwvrai, with 
et from at (27) and an added v (perhaps the active secondary end- 
ing ; cf. the double pluralization in the imv. -vrmv). 

Active. Indicative and subjunctive. Boeot. iwvQi, Sdcovdi, a-n-oSe- 
Soavdi, etc. Thess. KaToiKeiovvOt (pres. subj., 159). — Imperative. 
Boeot. evOco, avypa'^dvOm, etc. So also from the Phocian Stiris, 
near the Boeotian frontier, $e'Ka)v6i, la-rdvOm, la-rdvOiov, 


Imperative Active and Middle 

140. In the third plural the dialects exhibit the following types. 
Observe the divergence between the active, where 3 a and 4 a are 
the usual types, and the middle, where the corresponding 3 & and 
4 6 are rare, the usual type being 2 h. 

1. The same form as the third singular. Rare, and only in the 
middle. Corcyr. KpiveaQio, iTriSavei^ea-0(o, Calymn. eTna-afiaivea-da), 
Coan aipeia-Oa, Thas. Oecrda. 

2. a. -Tcov, formed from the third singular by the addition of 
the secondary ending -v. earcov, as in Homer, in Ionic only. A 
corresponding thematic (f>ep€Ta)y is unknown. 

l. -<t6(ov. ^epea-dojv etc., the usual form in most dialects. Lesb. 
i-TTifieXeadov (cf. -vrov, 5). 

3. a. -VToo, formed after the analogy of 3 pi. indie, -vn. ^epovrco, 
TiBeuTco, etc. in Arcadian, Boeotian (-vdm, 139.2), and the Doric 
dialects except Cretan. 

Note. Later Doric inscriptions often show the Att. -vt<ov beside -vt<o. 
Conversely the later Delphian inscriptions often have the general Doric -vtw 
beside -vtwv, which is the form of the earliest Delphian. 

6. -(v)a9(o. Epid. (pepoaOo, Lac. aveKoaOo, and so probably here 
(rather than under 1) Heracl. eTreKaaOw (cf. Coan iireXavra). For 
-oaOa from -ovadco, see 77.2. But Corcyr. iKXoyi^ova-dm comes from 
-ovffdco of later origin and with later treatment of va (77.3, 78), and 
it is possible to read (f>ep6a6o etc., likewise early Att. -oadrnv (4 6). 

4. a. -VTav, with double pluralization, a combination of types 2 
and 3. (fjepovrav, nOevreov, etc., as in Homer, in Attic-Ionic, Del- 
phian, Elean, Cretan. 

b. -(v)a0c0v. Early Att. eiritieKoadfov etc.. El. ti/mo^tov. 

5. -VTOV, -(tOov, probably from -vrwv (4 a), -adiuv (2 &) with -ov 
after the analogy of 3 pi. e^sepov etc. This is the regular type in 
Lesbian, e.g. (fiepovrov, KoXevrov, iinp.e\e(76ov, and Pamphylian 
(e.g. ohv = ovTov), and also appears, probably through Pamphylian 
influence, in an inscription of Phaselis which is otherwise in the 
Ehodian dialect, and in a Ehodian decree at Seleucia in Cilicia. 

142] INFLECTION 107 

6. -Taa-av, -adwa-av, with -v replaced by -aav (ef. 138.5). Att. 
ea-Tioaav, ^epeToxrdv (more rarely <f>€p6vTeoaav), iTniMeXeaOaxrav, 
etc., after about 300 b.c., hence in later iascriptions of various 

Future and Aorist 

141. « Doric future " in -aea. Except for a few middle forms in 
Attic-Ionic (Hom. ea-arelrai, Att. irXeva-ovfiai, etc.), this type is con- 
fined to the West Greek dialects (examples in most of the Doric 
dialects and in Delphian ; in Locrian and Elean no futures occur). 
Thus, from the very numerous examples, Delph. rayevaeeo, KXeyjreco, 
Cret. atr&xrim (i from e, 9), 7rpa^iofj,ev, ^oaOrjaiovri, TeiaTJrai, irpa- 
^rJTai, Epid. ^XayjreiaSai, Coan, Cnid. Troirja-elrai, Ehod. uttoSo)- 
aevvTi, Thpr. OrjaeovTi, -n-pa^ovvn (with Att. ov, as often in the 
Doric KOLvq, see 278). 

Heraclean has eaarfTai, ipja^rjrai, etc. (the active forms are 
ambiguous, but probably to be accented iroiTjael etc.), but in the 
third plural cnrd^ovTL, ea-a-ovrai, apparently of the ordinary type, 
since from the -a-eco type we should expect -aiovn (cf. avavyeXiovn). 
In all other Doric dialects, however, forms of the ordinary type are 
late, and clearly due to kolvi] influence. 

142. I in the future and aorist of verbs in -^<b. The extension of 
I, which is regular in the case of guttural stems, to other verbs in 
-fft), which regularly have era-, a- (SiKacrco, iSi/cacra), is seen in some 
isolated examples even in Homer (TroXe/xi^Ofjkev, as, conversely, 
'^piracre beside rjpira^e) and Hesiod (^7}fii^(oa-i). But as a general 
phenomenon it is characteristic of the West Greek dialects, where 
it is almost universal except in Argolic, together with Boeotian (in 
part), Thessalian, and Arcadian. Thus, from the countless examples, 
Cret. Si/caKo-ei, Ehod. Sioopi^avro, Coan ipyd^aa-Oai, Ther. Seiirvi- 
|ev, Meg. erepfiovt^av, Corcyr. cnroXoyi'^aa-Oai, Heracl. irepfia^av 
(f in forms of 12 verbs, but also icaTead)ia-afie<!, probably influ- 
enced by eacoa-a from o-cow), El. -n-oTapfio^aiTO, (Locr. i|ra'<^t|^ts, 
see below, a), Delph. ayMvi'^aro, Thess. ■facj)i^a<70€iv, Are, Trape- 


But in Argolic the f formation is avoided when a guttural pre- 
ceded, e.g. Arg. iSUaaaav, ipydcra-avTO, Epid. ipydaaadai, ava^io'- 
crai, beside aywvi^aer9ai,, 7rpoae(f>^€. 

Boeotian has, from different localities, both f and tt (= Att. a; 
82), e.g. iKO/ii^d/ieffa, eireaKeva^e, ifiept^e, iapetd^acra, and KOfurrd- 
fievoi, Kara(TK€vdrr7], iy}ra(})iTTaro, aTroXoryiTTatTTrj. 

a. A similar extension of guttural stems is sometimes seen in other 
forms, e.g. Heracl. iroTt/cXotyo) = ir/joo-KXa'o), ArgoL, Mess. kXiu^ (as in 
Theocr.), KXaiKToi, Lac. KcKe^ = KeA,i;s, lit. Dor. opvti, gen. opvix''' = opvK, 
6pvi6o<s, Cret. \pa.<j)iyixa (also ypd.i^ip.iia) = tj/rj<f>icriMi, Lesb. ij/d<j>iyyi = i/fi/<^t8t, 
and especially the frequent abstracts in -|ts = -o-ts, as Aetol. \pd.<t>iiK, Locr. 
^a.<fiiiii<; (89.1), Corcyr. X'^ipiii^, Cret. ^ijjouiti^is. 

143. (TO- in the future and aorist of verb-stems ending in a short 
vowel. The Homeric extension of era from ereX^cr-aa to iKdXe-trcra 
is an Aeolic characteristic. Lesb. [KaXejaa-drcoa-av, op.oaeravre'i, 
Boeot. crovvKa\ecTcravTe<;. Other dialects may have era- from stems 
ending in cr or a dental, as ireXeaaa or iSiKacrcra (Boeot. tt), iSatr- 
a-dfjLTjV (Cret. tt), later with one a (82, 83), but always eKaXeaa, 

144. Aorist in -a. ehra and r]ve^Ka, TJveiKa, or IjviKa in various 
dialects. Arc. part, airv^oat = aTroSow, Lesb. e^eva, elsewhere 
e%ea (e.g. Ion. av<y')(eaL, no. 2). In late times this type is extended 
to many other verbs, e.g. rfxOa, 'yevdfjLevo's. 

a. ijvaKa or ^vLKa, not ^veyKa, is the form of most dialects except Attic, 
e.g. Ion. ijveiKa (Horn., Hdt.), ivaKavTwv (Chios), also i^ivixO^i (Ceos); 
Lesb., Delph., Argol., Calymn. •^vi/ca, Boeot. ivevixOaa (i probably original, 
not = ei) and 3 pi. eiVi^av, the latter showing a fusion of ^vtKav with the 
usual aorist forms in -crav. 

145. Future passive with active endings. Ehod. e-Tnp.eX-qOr]- 
aevvTi, airoa-TaXrjcrel, Ther. crvvw^^OrjaovvTC, Cret. avaypaefyr/crlel], 
and ^avTjaelv, Seix^rjaovvTi in Archimedes. Although the inscrip- 
tional examples are, as yet, confined to the Doric islands, it is not 
improbable that thig wEis a general Doric or West Greek charac- 

147] INFLECTION 109 


146. 1. K-perfect. This is usual for vowel stems in all dialects. 
But there are some few forms without k, outside the indicative sin- 
gular, like Horn, fie^daa-i beside ySe/3j;«a9, KeK/jLTjax: beside KeKfir)Ka^, 
etc., e.g. Boeot. airohehoavdi, Kara^e^deov, SeSwcoar) = SeSwKvlai, 
fefVKOvofieiovTtov = oikovquijkotcov, 7reTriT€v6vT€<Tai, TreTTOiovTeia-a-i, 
Arc. [fo]<^\eao-i, [po](j)\eoi. (but part. fo^\e«o'o-t). 

The gradual extension of the K-type to other than original vowel 
stems is by no means confined to Attic (cf. e.g. Arc. itpOopKw^, 
Att. e<f>6apKa but also e<f>6opa), and some verbs which usually have 
the strong perfect show dialectic forms with a vowel stem and «. 
So dvSdvco, Xafi^dveo, with usual edSa, eiXrj<f>a (eiXacjia), but Locr. 
fSfaSeKora, Ion., Epid. XeXd^rjKa (also in Archim.), formed from 
the vowel stem which is present in many verbs in -ava (cf. rerv- 
XV"^! fj^fidOijKa, etc.). Usual e\ip\.vda, but rjXdrjKa in Boeot. Stecr- 
aeiXOeiKe (part. aTretXdeiovre's without k, see above). 

2. Aspirated perfect. Examples occur in various dialects. Even 
in the case of the K-perfect, where it is unknown in Attic-Ionic, 
the aspirate is seen in Arg. Se'So);^[e]. Cf. iKeKparepixv H-^'' in Sophron. 

3. In Heraclean occur 3 pi. indie. <ye^pd-\jraTai, with a- probably 
due ultimately to the influence of the 3 pi. aor. -crav (cf. 3 pi. perf. 
la-acTi after the analogy of 3 pi. pluperf. laav from *tS-a-av, whence 
also Dor. la-a/ii.), and 3 pi. subj. /jLefJ^iadmacovTai (to an indie. *iJLeiM- 
aOdxrarai ? Or formed to the fut. perf. fieniaOoiaofiai ?). 

4. Dialectic variations in the grade of the root (49) are not infre- 
quent, e.g. Cret. dfiTreXri\ev6ev = Att. a/j.cjieXri'KvOevai (Hom. eiXij- 
Xov0a), Heracl. eppriyela = Att. ippcoryvla. Dor. etc. «»«:«= Att. eka 
from iTifii (cf. eppcoya from priyvvfjn), also, in the middle, Heracl. 
avhemaOai, Arc. a^emcrdoi) (so aviwvTai Hdt., d<^ecovTai N.T.). 

5. For the reduplication, see 137 ; for the third plural ending, 
see 138.4. 

147. Thematic forms in the perfect. Aside from the subjunctive, 
optative, and imperative, which regularly have thematic inflection, 
Ve find : 


1. Indicative. Forms inflected like presents are often employed 
by the Sicilian Doric writers, e.g. Theocr. SeSoLKco, -jreTrovdeK, Tre^v- 
Kei, Epich. yeyddei, Archim. reTfiaKei, and occur in some iascriptions 
of Cnidus and Carpathus, e.g. T£Ti/j,dK€i, yeyovei, ia-Taicei, and occa- 
sionally elsewhere, as Phoc. elXd^ei. 

2. Infinitive. Forms in -eiv {-ev, -rjv) instead of -evai {-efiev etc.) 
are found in Lesbian and in some "West Greek dialects, e.g. Lesb. 
TeBvaKTjV, Te6ea>prjK7)v, Delph. airoTeTeiKev, Cret. ainrekifkevOev, 
Calymn., Nisyr. BeSwKev, Ehod. jeyoveiv, Epid. XeXa^'^iceiv. So Pin- 
dar KexXdSeiv, Theocr. SeSvKeLv. 

Cf. also Heracl. ire^vTevKruiev etc. from -e-e/iev instead of simply 

3. Participle. The thematic inflection is regular in the Aeolic 
dialects; e.g. Lesb. KaTeKrjXvdovTO^, KaTearaKovrcov, Thess. ire^ei- 
pdK0VTe<;, iTreardKovra, Boeot. pepvicovofietovTcop, BeScocoa-r] (146.1). 
Cf. Hom. Ke/cXijyovTe'i. 

a. There are some feminine forms in -ova-a in later Delphian (e. g. Se8ci>- 
Kou'cras), and elsewhere, but these represent a more restricted phenomenon, 
quite independent of the preceding. Cf . also Hom. lo-raSo-a, Att. inrrSxra. 

148. The participle in its regular (unthematic) form usually has 
the feminine in -via. But forms in -eta are found in late Attic 
and elsewhere, e.g. Heracl. ipprj'yela, Ther. ia-TaKeia. 


149. The subjunctive of thematic forms. The mood-sign is 
everywhere V/^^ as in Attic. But the third singular sometimes ends 
in -7), not -r]i. So uniformly, from the earliest times, in Arcado- 
Cyprian, e.g. Arc. Xeye, ex>], Cypr. \vcre, i^opv^e (also 2 sg. feC- 
o-e?). Lesbian has earlier -rji, but from the last quarter of the fourth 
century on nearly always -??, e.g. i^eXOrji etc. in no. 21 (first half 
fourth century), but ififievr] etc. in no. 22 (324 B.C.). Cf. also El. e/e- 
Tre/xird (a = r], 15), Epid. TreTTj, Coan Xddrj. 

a. It is the prevailing view that these forms are not equivalent to the 
Attic, but represent the more original formation, in which the endings 
were added directly to the rj (ixV'^' ^X'I'(j))> without the t, which is due to 

161] INFLECTION 111 

the analogy of the indicative forms in -«?, -a. But this is far from certain, 
as it is quite possible to view the --q as coming from ->ji. Even in the case 
of the Aro.-Cypr. forms there is nothing decisive against this, and it is dis- 
tinctly more probable that the later Lesbian -r] comes from the earlier -Tjt (in 
spite of the fact that in no. 22 the i is still written in the datives). See 38. 

150. The subjunctive of the o--aorist. As in the case of other 
unthematic formations (of. Horn, i'o/xei' to tfj^v), this was originally 
a short-vowel subjunctive in %, and only later came to follow the 
more common long-vowel type in '^. Aside from Hom. ^rjaofiev 
etc., short-vowel forms are found in East Ionic, Lesbian, Cretan, and 
occasionally elsewhere. East Ion. ironfjaei, Kard^ei, eKKoyjrei (no. 3, 
Teos), airoKpvip-ei, iirdpei, i^ofioaei (likewise, from the a-aorist, 
KaTeCirei) beside fieOeXriL etc., further KaraKTeivoaiv (i.e. -ova-i, not 
-too-t), Cliian irprj^ouTiv (with Lesb. otcr from ova, 77.3). Lesb. (with 
extension to the thematic aorist) reKoiat. Cret. heUaei, ahucqaei 
beside aireXdr]!, etc. (hence the forms of the Law-Code are to be 
transcribed -ei not -ei), iKa-avvrjcreTai beside einhiriTai, o/ioaovTi 
beside Xaxcovn, etc. Cf. also Coan viroKvfei, Astyp. So'^et. 

151. The subjunctive of unthematic vowel stems. There are two 

distinct types. 

1. The endings are added directly to the long vowel of the stem. 
With very few exceptions, this type is found only in those forms 
of which the correspondiug indicative has the short vowel. So espe- 
cially in the middle, e.g. Cret. Swafiai, vvvarai, vvvavn, beside 
indie, hvvdnai. Arc. eirurvviaTaTai beside indie. t'o-raTow, Searot (cf. 
Hom. Searo), but also, when the indicative also has d, Cret. ireird- 
rai, Ther. -ireirparai. Further, in the active. Mess, rid-nvri beside 
indie. TiOevTi (hence also, beside evrl, Mess, fiv-rai = <S<n, Delph. 
^^„j ^ ^)_ rfpdcjirjvn beside indie. eypa<pev, etc., but also Calymn. 
e[y]pvai to indie. Epid. i^eppvd. 

After the relation of lo-Tarat to icrrdTai there arose also an 
aor. subj. aa beside indie, ad, e.g. Cret. Trapevadrai, Arc. ^(oXev- 
advrai, likewise in Elean, with loss of a {59.S),<f>vyaSevavTL (no. 60), 
TTotTjarat (no. 61). 


2. The usual type is that in which the long vowel of the stem 
was followed by the short vowel subjunctive sign %, this being 
generally replaced by the more usual % (cf. 150). Further change 
is due to the shortening, in the majority of dialects, of the long 
stem vowel before the following vowel (43). Hom. 0'^ofiev (deio- 
fiev), dijrj'i, hmojiev, hanj, Boeot. /cadia-rdei, a-TroScoei, Delph. Bmi], 
avnirpiariTai, Heracl. ^avn (from *<j}acovn), Thess. Svvaerai, but 
with shortening Ion. 0ea>fji,ev, Att. dcofiev, Cret. evdicofiev (i from e), 
etc. Similarly in the aorist passive, Hom. Bafi-qrf;, ixur^rirp, Boeot. 
Kovpcodeiei, iirifj^Xeideiei, KaraaKevaadeiet, ivevix^eiei, Arc. KUKpi- 
6ee, but with shortening Ion. XvOea/jiev, Att. \v6ebfiev, Cret. ireiOdi- 
covTi (cf. ivdicofiev), Heracl. ijfrjXrjdicovTi, Ehod. ipjaa-Oecovn, etc. 


152. 1. Thematic. Late Delph. 3 pi. 6e\oiv, Trapey^^oiv, etc., with 
-ev replaced by -v after the analogy of e<j)€pov etc. 

2. Unthematic. The extension of irj to the plural, as often in 
Ionic and late Attic, is seen in late Delph. airohihoirjaav, doubtless 
due to KOLvrj influence. 

3. Unthematic type in contract verbs. See 157 h. 

4. (T-aorist. The so-called Aeohc type in -eia<;, -ete, -eiav, common 
in Attic-Ionic, is seen in El. KaTiapavcreie, later aSeaXrcohaie with 
a from the iudicative (as in the usual -ai). But most dialects have 
at throughout, as Cret. vcKdaai, Locr. avKdaai, Arc. (jtffepai, etc. 


153. The infinitive of thematic forms. Att. (j>epei,v. 

1. -eiv or -r]v, according as the dialect has et or r) from e -|- e (25). 
So Att.-Ion., Thess. (Thessaliotis), Locr., Corinth., Ehod. -eiv, but 
Lesb., EL, Lac. -r)v. 

. 2. -ev. So in Arcadian (but --qv at Lycosura, near Elis), Cyprian 
(or -ev ?), Delphian, and many of the Doric dialects (Heracl., ArgoL, 
Cret., Ther., Coan, etc.). 

155] INFLECTION 113 

3. Some of these dialects have -ei; even from verbs in -eco, e.g. 
Cret. Ko<7iJ,ev, ivpocicev (but also KaXrjv, fjLoXfjv ; both types at Gor- 
tyna), Ther. Stot/ceV, Coan Seivve'v, Calymn. /xaprvpev, Arg. -rrcoXev. 

154. The infinitive of vmthematic forms. Att. ehai. 

1. -vai. So in Attic-Ionic and Arcado-Cyprian, e.g. Att.-Ion. 
elvai, Bovvai, Cypr. Sofevai (probably -fevai, like -/j^evai), KVfiepevai, 
Arc. ^vai. 

2. -fievai. So in Lesbian, as in Homer, e.g. ep-nevai, deiievai, 

3. -fiev. Sofiev etc. in Thessalian, Boeotian, and nearly all the 
West Greek dialects. 

4. -firjv. Cret. TjMvetc. (but also ^fiev; both types at Gortyna). 

5. -fieiv. So/Meiv etc. (probably formed from -/lev after the analogy 
of -eiv) in Ehodes and vicinity (Carpathus, Telos) and the Ehodian 
colonies (Phaselis in PamphyHa ; Gela and Agrigentum, in Sicily ; 
also at Ehegium no. 100). 

155. Interchange of thematic and unthematic types of infinitive. 

1. -/lev is extended to thematic forms in Boeotian and Thessahan 
(Pelasgiotis), as sometimes in Homer (cf. el-n-efiev, and elirefievai), 
e.g. Boeot. ^epe/iev, Thess. vTrapxep'SV. Cf. also Cret. irpopeiirenev in 
an early inscription of Lyttus. 

2. The aorist passive infinitive, which is regularly unthematic 
(Att. ypatfxfjvai, Dor. ypa<j>fj/jLev), foUows the thematic type in Les- 
bian and Arcadian, e.g. Lesb. i'n-ifieX'^djjv, ovredrfv, etc.. Arc. Bvadev 
or 6va6ev (i.e. -■q-v with v added to the aor. pass, stem, or -ev with 
complete assimilation to virdp'^fev etc.). 

3. In Lesbian the present infinitive of vmthematic vowel stems, 
as well as of the contract verbs, which otherwise follow the imthe- 
matic type (157), ends in -v, not -p-evai, e.g. SiScov, Kepvav, op,vvv, 
koXtjv, crTe<f)dvcov, KareCprnv (KaOiepovv). Once also aor. infin. tt/jo- 
arav (but usually -fievai, as Oefievai, Sofievai). 

4. For the thematic forms of the perfect infinitive in various 
dialects see 147.2. 

5. For Euboean ndelv etc., and even eh beside ehai, see 160. 


156. The infinitives in -aai and -adai. Thessalian (Larissa) has 
ovypd-tp-eiv, SeSoadeiv, ea-aeadeiv, ■jreirelareiv, eXea-reiv, etc., with -ei 
from -ai (27), and v added after the analogy of other infinitives. 
Boeot. -ffdr), -arr) with tj from m (26). For ar = aO, see 85.1. 

Unthematic Inflection of Contract Verbs 

157. The /tw-inflection of contract verbs, sometimes known as 
the Aeolic inflection, is characteristic of Lesbian, Thessalian, and 
Arcado-Cyprian, e.g. Lesb. KoKrjfu (Sappho), icaXevTov, KardypevTov, 
evepyevTea-cn, [oJ/tovoei'Te?, uTotpjjet? (78), Thess. e(j>dvypevdeiv = 
i^aipovmai,, evepyere; (78), crTpaTayevTO<; (but hvKopeovTO'i in no. 33, 
and so perhaps always in Thessaliotis), Arc. iroievai, iroevrm, aSi- 
K€VTa, Kveva-av, fuepodvre'; (78), ^a/Miovrco, KaTa(^povrivai, Cypr. kv- 
fiepevai. TeKe(T<\)opevTe<s in an inscription of Cyrene is probajjly a 
relic of the pre-Doric (Achaean) element in Thera. /xt-forms are 
also quoted as Boeotian by the grammarians, but the inscriptions 
show only the usual type (crTpaTayiovTo<; etc.). 

a. The stem ends in a long vowel, which is regularly shortened before vt 
(though also, with analogical tj, Lesb. KaToiKi^vTwv in contrast to usual eiiep- 
ye\nta(TL etc., and vpovorjvTcu, Siaira^ijvrat, like Att. St^ijyrot, in contrast to 
Thess. €<l>dvyp£v9av), but is otherwise retained throughout, e.g. Lesb. oinj- 
Tot, koXtjcOcu,, eirt/teXijcrfla), tfufxiuxTOio, irotij/xevos, irpoa.ypyjfLfx.evto, Thess. aTre- 
Xeu^epo«(7^etv, Sieaatftfi/xa'a, Arc. dSuc^/iei/o;, ^ajuuxrOot (no. 18.28, but reading 
uncertain). This type, then, follows the analogy of that seen in I/SXtji/, 
PX^To, j8\ij/tevos, hliripiai, etc. rather than that of TiOr/fu, nOtp-ev, rSipuarcK, 
with vowel-gradation. But even the latter sometimes shows an extension 
of the long vowel from the singular active, e.g. Lesb. [ir/3oaTt]6ij(r[flov], 
SiSmrOaj., like Horn. TifliJ/xevoi, TtSij/icvos. 

6. The more limited extension of the /ux-inflection to the optative of con- 
tract verbs, as in Att. tjjiXoirp/, pMrdoCr/v, etc., is occasionally found elsewhere. 
Ion.>6(.ovq beside irotoi, El. o-v\ate, hapjocnoux (= -oiij) beside 8oKeoi, iroieoi, 
enrol. Cf. also the infinitives El. hapoaiSipiai, Cret. ^a/uB/ui/. 

Middle Participle in -ei(i,€Vos 

158. The middle participle in -eifievo<! (or -rjfj.evo';) from verbs in 
-eco, as if from -e-e/tevos instead of -e-ofievo^, is characteristic of the 

161] INFLECTION 115 

Northwest Greek dialects and Boeotian, e.g. Locr. ewaXei/ievo?, 
Delph. KaXet'/ievos, Troiei/ievoi, etc., Boeot. Set>ei/os, El. Ka{S)Sa\e- 
fievo<}. This is due to the analogy of forms which regularly had ei 
(or ri) from e-e, as the infinitive KaXelaOaL. Cf. Phoc. iroieivTai. = 
TToiovvTai, formed after voielaOe. 

a. Lesb. koXij^evos, Arc. dStKiJ/no/os, etc. do not belong here, but among 
the other /u-forms of these dialects. See 157 a. 

Type <|>iXT\a>, o-T€(|>av(0(o 

159. Forms in -ti<o, -tow, with the long-vowel stem of the other 
tenses extended to the present, are found in various dialects, e.g. 
Lesh. aStKjjet, Thess. tcaroiKeiovvOi, (3 pi. subj.), Delph. o-Te^ai/tueToj, 
hov\a)T)i, Phoc. KXapweiv, Boeot. hafiuoefiev, haynmovTe; (only in late 
inscriptions of Orchomenus, and probably due to Aetolian influ- 
ence). Ther., Ehod., etc. crTe(f)ava)i, Calymn. a^im may be from -taet, 
and so belong here, but contraction from -oei is also possible (cf. 
25 a). 

Transfer of |jli- Verbs to the Type of Contract Verbs 

160. The transfer of certain forms of /it-verbs to the inflection 
of contract verbs is found in various dialects, as Att. iriOei, iSiBov, 
Delph. a.7roKadiardovTe<;, SiBeova-a, but is most wide-spread in Ionic. 
With Tidel etc. in Homer and Herodotus, compare SiSot (MUetus) 
and the Euboean infinitives ridelv, BiSovv, KaOicrrav, and even elv be- 
side eivai. 

Some Other Interchanges in the Present System 

161. 1. Verbs in -evto form their present in -eiw in Elean, as 
(jivyaSetTjv = (ftvyaSeveiv, beside aor. ^vyaSevavn, also (with a after 
p, 12 a) Kariapauov = KaGiepevav, beside aor. KaTiapavaeie, and \a- 
rpailofievovj, Xarpeiofjievov = XaTpevofievov. So also fiaa-reieL = 
fiac7Tevei, in an inscription of Dodona. This represents the normal 
phonetic development from -efuo, the usual -evco being due to the 
influence of the other tenses. 

2. Verbs in -aco show forms in -em in various dialects, but, with 
few exceptions, only where the e is followed by an o-vowel, e.g.. 


aside from Kterary examples (as Horn, fievoiveov, Alcm. ope'eov, 
Theoer. opeOa-a), Delph. avXeoi, av\eovre<; (but (TvXrjTco), eTririfieov- 
rey, dcoeovrmv (Ait. 6dav, Locr. ffoiea-To), Aetol. viKe6vT0i<;, Ehod. 
TifiowTe'i and also rt/jielv (Agrig.), El. ive^eoi, Cret. (with t from e, 
9.4) i^iov, iirapioiievov, /jioiKtov (fiotxao)). According to some this 
rests upon an actual phonetic change of ao to eo, the ao (w) in 
Attic and elsewhere being a restoration due to leveling with the ae 
forms. But we may have to do simply with a transfer to the -eco 
type, which was mainly favored where it offered uncontracted forms 
(in most dialects eo was uncontracted until late, but ee contracted ; in 
all forms like Ehod. TifiovPTe<; the ov is an Attic substitution for eo). 

a. Conversely Delph. ^rjda/Mu for usual )(pr]iofjuu seen in Meg. ■ffp-qtUrOia, 
El. ^pelcrdai, Boeot. T^eteio-flat, Att., Ion., Heracl. ffpija-dai (Att. )(p3xTdiu is 
late), Cret. ^TJdOai, Lac, Locr. y^crrai, Ion. p^pEai/uei/os, Rhod. ^ev/icvoi, 
Delph. ^tifjitvo's (158). 

162. Among other, more individual, cases of variation in the 
present stem, may be mentioned : 

1. -1^(0 = -00), especially in West Greek. Boeot., Phoc. BovXi^a 
(Delph. BovXoco intrans. = Att. BovXevco), Delph.,' Thess. aTreXeu^e- 
pi^co, Delph., Ehod., Mess., Cret. opKi^a (but also Ionic and Attic 
sometimes). Dor. a-Te^avi^co (ia-recjidvi^a Ar. Eq. 1225). 

2. -aco = -oco. Lesb. a^idw (a^udaei), Thess., Dor. icoivdm, Phoc. 
(TKavev (also Att. a-Krjvav) = cricrjvovv, Heracl. apdco (apdcrovn) = 
ap6(o. Cf. Cret. dparpov — dporpov. 

3. -oco. Delph., Arg., Meg., Cret., Ther., Sicil. a-Kevoco = aKevd^co, 
Boeot. inOom = ireidco, Heracl. irptoa) (subj. irpiSa from *7rpLd>rji, 159) 
= Trpiai. 

4. jeXafii, = yeXdco, in Epid. SieyeXa, KaTayeXdfievo<!. eXafu = 
iXavvco, in Coan eXdvrco, Arg. TroreXdro, Heracl. iireXdadm (140.3 h). 
Locr. aireXdovTM, though it could be from eXdai, probably belongs 

5. Boeot., Thess. yivvp,ai = <, with transfer to the vw-class. 

6. Aetol., Lac, Cret. ayvem — dyw, but mostly in the perfect, as 
Aetol. ajvrjKm^ etc. beside other tenses from ayco. 


7. For Att. rw, ?^? from *^i^to etc., most dialects have ^dom 
(Boeot., Cret. Staw) as in Homer. These are from inherited by-forms 
of the root. 

8. Cret. \aya(a>, release (cf. \7y7ftj, Xaya-pd';), aor. Xarydcai, like 
Horn. Kepaico (also Delph.), aor. «e/3a'(a-)a-at (cf. 143), but also Xa- 
yd^to, aor. Xaydaaai (cf. airoXdya^Ks, like XP'ni^o-ri^i-'i, 142 a). 

9. To Trevdo/iai, coveo/iai, iXevaofiai Cretan has the active forms 
Trev^w, inform, mvem (ovev, mvioi), sell, e-rreXevael, will bring (cf. 
Hesych. iXevcrio) • oia-co), aor. eirekevaaL, iireXeva-av, etc. 

10. Cret. Siofiai = Bicoko), as sometimes in Homer. 

11. Cypr. Svpdvco, Scok(o = fitSca/it. 

12. Arc. Tetft) = ti'vco, formed to reiaco, eTeicra (cf . cret'co, a-etVo), etc.). 

The Verb to be 

163. 1. First singular present indicative. *eV/ii^ whence Lesb. 
e/M/Mi, Thess. eVA"', elsewhere elfii or ^yiii'. See 76. 

2. Third plural present indicative. *evTL (cf. Skt. santi, Osc- 
Umbr. sew^), whence, with substitution of e after the analogy of the 
other forms, West Greek evTi, Att.-Ion. elai. See 61.1, 77.3. 

3. Third singular imperfect. ^9 (from *^a--T, cf. Ved. Skt. as) is 
attested for various West Greek dialects (Acaru., Corcyr., Delph., 
Epid., lit. Doric), Boeotian (Tra/set?), Arcadian, and Cyprian, and is 
probably the form in all dialects (for Locr. ev, see no. 55.9, note) 
except Attic-Ionic, where it was replaced by ^v (Hom. ^ev), the old 
third plural (from *^aev, cf. Skt. dsan). 

4. Third plural imperfect. Most dialects had ^v (see above, 3), 
examples of which are found in literary Doric, Delphian, and Lo- 
crian. For Boeot. Trapelav, Att.-Ion. rjcrav, see 138.5. 

5. Third singular imperative, earm in most dialects. But late 
fjTO), with Tj of rjv etc. after the analogy of e.g. o-Tj?Tto to ecrrqv. El. 
7](7T(o, also with analogical rj but with retention of a: 

6. Third plural imperative. Arg. evTw, Boeot. evOco (139.2), Cret. 
evTcov, formed from 3 pi. indie, ivri. Also thematic iovTw, iovrwv, 
e.g. in Delphian. Ion. earcov, Attic ovtcov and late earaa-av. 


7. Present infinitive. The difference in the form of the ending 
(154) and also in the development of cr + nasal (76) explains the 
great variety of forms, Attic-Ionic elvai (also Eub. elv, 160), Arc. 
rival, Lesb. efifievai, Thess. e/xfiev, "West Greek and Boeotian el/iev 
or ^/iev (25), Ehod. eifieiv, Cret. ^nr}v. 

8. Present participle. eo>v in most dialects, Att. oov. But there 
are also unthematic forms, as Heracl. eVre? (also quoted from Ale- 
man ; from *6VTe? vsdth e as in evTi, above, 2), fem. Lesb., Epid. eo-cra 
(also in some Doric writers ; cf. eaaia = ova (a Plato Crat. 401c), 
Arc, Arg., Mess, eatrcra, Cret. Xarra, ladOa (all from *aTia = Skt. 
satl, with the substitution or prefixing of e after the analogy of the 
other forms). 

a. This unthematic feminine formation in -arta (from -ni-ia) is seen also 
in some forms quoted by Hesychius, namely iKoxraa (d£Kacr(ra), Cret. peKadda 
(ycKaOd) = iKovcra, lacrcra ('EiruMTcra) = iovaa. 

9. Middle forms, as imperf. ijfiriv etc., are late. Cf. 3 sg. subj. 
jjrat at Delphi, 3 pi. subj. ^vrat at Andania. 

10. In a Cretan inscription of Dreros (no. 113) we find reXo/iai 
= ecrofiac, avvreXeaOai = avvea-eaOai. 


On the Form and Use of Certain Suffixes and Certain Peculiarities of 


164. 1. -Tjto? 1 = Att. -eto9. Att. -eio': is in part derived from -r]io<! 
(this again in part from -rjfio's, cf. Boeot. KapvKepio), which is re- 
tained iQ various dialects, e.g. Ion. lep-qiov, Delph. lepijiov, Lesb. 
IpiJLov, Ion., Cret. oIk^io';, Ion., Lesb., Cret. TrpvTavtjiov, Ion., Cret. 
avSp7jio<;, Ion. ^aaiK'qio'i, tjtoiviKijta, Delph. -n-atSijia. On the ac- 
centuation of these forms, see 37.2. 

2. Adjectives of the type xaptew are from -fevr- (Skt. -vant-). 
The feminine was originally -faria (Kke Skt. -vatl, from the weak 
stem -unt- ; cf. eaaaa 163.8), whence, with substitution of e for a 
from the analogy of the forms in -pevr-, arose pena, this yielding 
-[f)ea(Ta or -(/r)eTTa (81). Cf. Boeot. ;)(;a/3tfeTTai', Corcyr. arovo- 
pe{<r)a-av, Pamph. Tiixdpe{(r)aa. The genuine Attic forms have tt, 
as ixeXtTovTTa {Ax.), MvppivovTra (iuscr.), those with aa- being 
poetical and in origiu Ionic. Most adjectives of this type are 
poetical only, except in substantive use especially the numerous 
names of places in -o«?, for which see also 44.4. 

a. A relic of the weak stem -par- is seen in a few derivatives, as $Xta- 
arioi (cf. $Aioi)s) or 'Avayvpdcnoi (cf. 'Avayupom), from -o(/:)dTioi (with 
hyphaeresis of o), in contrast to the usual -ovriot, -ovvrioi, or -ovo-lol, from 

3. -Tt9 -o-t?. See 61.3. For -^t? see 142 a. We find -aa-K instead 
of usual -(TK in Arg. a\ida-aio<;, Epid. CTeyda-crioi;, Troez. epp-daa-io'i, 
Boeot. ayopaa-aiv, in which the first er is due to the influence of 
forms like crTejaa-TO';, areyaa-fia. 

'' For convenience the form of the nominative is cited, rather than that of 
the stem. 



4. -a-fio^, -ana. In most words a has replaced, by analogy, an 
earlier dental, which is sometimes preserved, as in Horn, ohfiri = 
Att. oafirj. So for Att. 0eo-/io's, eea-/j,io<;, we find Dor. redfio^, Te0fiio<i 
(Pindar; Ted/J.d'i also Delph., tS/juov Boeot.), and Lac, Epid. 6e- 
Bfio:;, Locr., El. deOfiiov (65). After the analogy of forms in -(Tfia, 
especially y^ri^iaiia, vofucrfia, arose Arg. ypdcra-fia = r^pafifm. For 
Cret. ■\jtd(f)iyij,a, yjrd^i/ifia, see 142 a. 

5. -Ttjp = -tt;? (-Ttt?). As a productive suffix of nouns of agency 
the older -Trjp has been very largely displaced by -tjj? (-rd<s), but 
most fully in Attic prose. As forms with -rrjp = usual -tt;? (-ras) 
are not infrequent in poetry, e.g. Horn. edeXovTrjp, Hes. avXrjrijp, 
so they occur also sometimes in the dialects, e.g. Locr., Pamph. 
SiKaaT'qp (but in most dialects SiKaa-Ta<;, like Att.-Ion. Si/eao-T^s), 
Delph. /Sey8atti)T7?jt), Corcyr. SiopOarijp. Cf. also Cypr. Ijarijp like 
Horn, larrip = usual larpoi}. 

6. -to? = -eo9. In adjectives of material Lesbian and Thessalian 
have -to9 (which is not from -eo? ; Boeot. -to? may be -to? or -eo?), 
as Lesb. j^/ouo-to?, ^a\Kto?, apyvpio'i, Thess. \t^to? (cf. Horn. Xt^eo?, 
but in most dialects \l6ivo';). 

7. -r]v=-a)v. Hypocoristic proper names in-T/vinstead of the usual 
-cov, as 'Apxv^jT^i'M^, are very frequent in the Corinthian colonies of 
ApoUonia and Epidamnus, and are occasionally found elsewhere. 

8. -mvScK, -ovScK. Patronymics in -covSa/;, as 'ETrayiteti'wi'Sa?, are 
most common in Boeotian, but are not infrequent in Phocian and 
Euboean (-oji'St;?), while elsewhere they are rare and probably im- 
ported. The parallel, but less common, -oKSa? is attested for Boeo- 
tian, Thessalian, Loorian, and Euboean. 

9. Individual cases of dialectic variation in suffix are of course 
frequent. So, for example, Thess. \i6io'; = Xidivo<i (cf. above, 6), Ion. 
v6fiaio<;, Locr. vofiioi = vo'/it/io?, Thess. ovaXa (but also ovaXovixa) 
= avaXcofia, Boeot., Epir. Trodohajxa (after avaXwiia) = TrpoaoSo';, 
Thess. avvKXek (stem -kXtj-t-, cf. ivpo^Xri^ etc.) = avyKXijTO'; skkXt)- 
aia, Cret. rjixlva = to rj/ji,i,a-v (also Sicil. rip.iva, used, like Epid. hifiC- 
reia, in the sense of rifxCeKTov), Cret. 6lvo<i (from *di-iv6i; formed 



from ei6<i after the analogy of hvdpcim-ivo'i), hdivo^ = delo'i, evBeo^, 
Att. aSeX<j>6<i but aSeXcfyeo^ in other dialects, Delph. jdiMeXa (cf! 
ycifierr)^) = yafiijXia. 

165. 1. -Tepo<i. Noteworthy examples of the use of this suffix to 
denote contrasted relations (not merely those of degree as in the 
comparatives), as in Be^trepos, apia-Tepoi, are Arc. appevrepo'i, El. 
epo-em irepo? (for at cf. yepairepoi, iraXacTepo^), e-qXvTepo'i. 

2. -tSto? forming adjectives from adverbs or adverbial phrases, 
as ai^io^, eiriffaXaa-a-iSio^. So El. 7rpoa0iSio<i (irpoa-TL^Cdv), Cret. 
ivSoOiSiov (ivSodiSiav BoXav household slave), Epid. ivSoadiSioi 
{ivSo(70iSia entrails ; so ivToadiSia Arist., Hipp.), Cret. i^apxiBio'i 
= e^ "'PXV'' 'ytyvofievoi;. 

3. -rpov. From words like Xirpov means of release, hence ran- 
som, the suffix came to be used freely in words denoting reward 
or amount paid, as viKatrrpov reward of victory, Epid. larpa per- 
quisites for healing. Ion., Coan reXearpa expenses of inauguration 
(of the priest. Cf. Coan reXeto inaugurate), Cret. KOfiia-rpa gifts 
(more specific?), and, even from a numeral, Cret. rpirpa the three- 
fold amount. 

4. -€(ov, -(ov in nouns denoting place, as avSpcov (Ion. avSpemv, 
Pamph. a(v)Spuov), afiireXcov, vexpcov, opviOdiv. To this large class 
belong Heracl. TO(f>uov (t = e, 9.6) = ra^etoi' lurial-place, yaiwv heap 
of earth (cf. yaemv from Halaesa), ^o<i)v cow-shed. Ion. a-Te<f>a>v ridge. 

This class is not to be confused with nouns of agency in Ion. 
-ewv but Dor. etc. -amv, -av, as Ion. ^vvedv. Dor. Koivav. See 41.4. 

166. 1. Proper names in -«\ea?, instead of -/cXe?;?, -kXjj?, as 'Itttto- 
xXeas, are most common in Thessahan, but also occur in Boeotian, 
Phocian, and Aetolian. -/e\eas is a modification of -KXer}^ under 
the influence of hypocoristics in -eas. 

2. Aio^OTO'i (i.e. Ai6a--SoTo<;, cf. Aiocr-Kovpoi) and ©eLoa-SoTa, 
@€6^oTo<;, Slo^otoi (formed after Ato'o--SoTo?, cf. 6e6a-SoTo<; in He- 
siod), instead of usual Ato'Soro?, @e6SoTo?, are frequent in Boeotian, 
and Thessalian also has @e6^oTo<;, ©toforo?, and &e6pSoTO'! (60.4). 
Elsewhere such forms are rare and doubtless imported. 


167. The interchange of diiFerent vowel stems in the first mem- 
ber of a compound, or before a derivative suffix, is sometimes dia- 
lectic. Thus TifioKXrj^, TifjuoKparrjii, etc. in most dialects, but Ion. 
TifjLr]K\rj<;, T!ifirjKpdTri<;, Cnid. Ttfi,dK\ri<s, Ehod. TifJLdKpa,Tr)<;, Ttfia- 
iroXi'!, Likewise Ehod. Tifiava^ {*Tifji,a-(f)ava^) instead of usual 
Tifiava^ (*Tt/io'-(f)amf). Thess. vKa>p6<; {hv\6 peovToi) from *v\o- 
pwpo'i, and so related to i)\?;a)/5o? from *v\d-pa)p6'i as v\0T6p.o<; to 

Arc, Locr., Thess. otKiara^ (or poiKiara'i) from oIkIu, for usual 
olKerr}'; from oiKog (f otweu? is the form used in Cretan, as sometimes 
ia Homer). Ion. iroXi-qTr]^, Cret., Epid. iroXiaTa'i (also Pindar), Cret. 
TToXidTevaj, Arc. TroXtart?, for usual ttoXitt;? etc.; cf. Heracl. TroXta- 
voixo'i, Ion. TToXi.rjo'xo'; (Epic), Lac. •TroXidy^o'; (but Att. iroXiov'^^o'; 
with -ovxo'i from KXrjpovxo'S etc.). 

Late Att. iepdrevo}, Locr., Phoc. leprjrevco (also in some kocv^ 
inscriptions), Lesb. Iprjrevai, Cret., Cyren. lapiTevm, Mess, iepnevco, 
Chalced. iepa)Tev(o, lepaneCa (cf. Att. iepaxrvvrj). 

Carpath. Safierw;, like oliceTq<;, for usual haixora';, hrjp.oT'q'i, as 
conversely oIkottj'; in an Attic inscription. So Cret. yStero? (cf. 
Astyp. Bt'eTTo?) = Kioto's. Ehod. 'iTTTre'Sa/ios = 'l7r7ro'Sa/io?, but 
Ehod. ' ApxoKpdT7]<! = 'Ap')(eKpdTr]<;, Cret. MevoKparrji; = MewK/aa- 
tt;?, Meg. 'AyoXao!; = 'A7eXao9. 

After the analogy of names containing inherited t-stems arose 
also forms lilce 'Ap'x^iXo^o';, 'Ap-)(iSaiJ,o<;, etc. (cf. apxireKTcov) in 
various dialects, Ehod. MeviSaiJt,o<;, El. Sai'/cXa/jo?, Coan, Msyr., 
Mel. AaLcrTpaTO<s, Nisyr. Aaccrdevrj^. 

a. The well-known lengthening of the initial vowel of the second mem- 
ber of compounds, as in aviavu/ws, iraviljyvpi's, is seen in Ion. avnpideuTiK = 
Att. avcpLOeuTo^. To the analogy of forms like eirdfcoos, einyKOos, which are 
of the same kind, is due the iira- of Cret. kwapoXa share (cf. Hesych. iinj- 
^oX-q ■ /xcpos) and Hom. e7ri?/8o\os. Cf . Karrj^oX-^ in Euripides. 

168. Use of a patronymic adjective instead of the genitive sin- 
gular of the father's name. Though occasionally found in literature, 
as in Horn. TeXa/Movios Al'a?, this is the regular practice in prose 


only in the three Aeolic dialects. Thus Lesb. MeXavxpo<; IliO(oveio<:, 
^Apx^'TTra 'Adavdeia, Thess. Ivxovv 'Avriyoveio';, Nt/co'Xao? 'A7€t- 
o-iato?, Boeot. ©toTrojUTro? 'OXuyLtTri^^to?, 'Ep/^ato? NiKt?jo9. 

a. When the father's name is itself a patronymic form ia -8as or -tos, 
the genitive is regularly employed in Boeotian ; so also in early Thessalian, 
but later the adjective forms like 'EiriKpariSatos, Ti/xowiSaios are usual. 

6. Under Koanq influence the use of the adjective was given up in favor 
of the ordinary genitive construction. Thus in Boeotian the genitive is 
usual after about 250 B.C. and occasionally found earlier. There is some 
evidence that the Plataeans adopted the Attic usage at an early date. See 
no. 42. 

c. There are also examples in Thessalian and Boeotian of adjectives in 
agreement -with appellatives, in place of a genitive of possession. Thess. 
UoXviofaia cju/xi (sc. d <7T<iAAa), etc. See the following. 

d. A genitive may be used in apposition to that implied by the adjec- 
tive, as in Hom. TopytiTj Kefjiakij Setvoto ireX.utpav. Boeot. Ka(X)Xui«i e^i (sc. 
a KvAif) TO Kcvrpovos, Topyivioi e/u,t o kotuXos koXos K[aX]6, Lesb. (r[TaAA]a 
Vt 'SiOfveuu l/x/u TO NtKtai'oi (dat.) to TavKio (gen.) the son of Mcias, the son 
of Gaucus, where VavKLo is also a patronymic adjective, but in apposition 
with the genitive implied in NiKiatoi. 


169. Although the syntax of the dialects deserves fuller investi- 
gation than it has received, yet syntactical differences between the 
dialects are much less striking than those of phonology and inflec- 
tion. To a considerable extent they consist merely in the conserva- 
tion in some dialects of early forms of expression which have become 
rare or obsolete in literary Greek, and in a less strict formalization 
of usage. Some peculiarities have already been mentioned in con- 
nection with the forms, e.g. in the use of certain pronouns (121- 
131), adverbs and conjunctions (132-134), and in the meaning and 
construction of prepositions (136). It is necessary to add here only 
a few comments on certain uses of the cases and the moods. Some 
other, more isolated, peculiarities are observed in the notes to the 


The Genitive 

170. Genitive of Time. The genitive of the 'time within wliich' 
is especially frequent in the early Cretan inscriptions, although iv 
with the dative is already the more usual expression. In both cases 
the article is used, while in late inscriptions we find only ev with 
the dative and without the article. Of. Law-Code, 1.25 Tuiyda-ai, rdv 
TreVr a/xepav release within Jive days, but 1.6 iv rat? Tpial afj,epai<:. 
So in Locrian, but without the article, rpiov fievov beside iv rpcd- 
povT afidpaK, as also in early Attic inscriptions. 

Aside from the adverbial phrases vvkt6<; etc., the use of the geni- 
tive of time is most persistent in dating, as /i?;vo9 e^S6/j,ov etc., the 
usual expression in most dialects. More noteworthy is the phrase 
Kal troXeiMov (-co) kuI elpr)vr)<; (-a<s) which is common in the prox- 
eny decrees of various dialects, though eventually replaced in many 
by iv TToXefiai kt\. 


174] SYNTAX 125 

The genitive of time is used distributively in various dialects, as 
also in Attic, e.g. ra? a.fxepa'i or ra? aixepa<; f€Kd(Tra^ daily, beside 
Kar afiepav. 

171. Genitive of the Matter involved, in legal phraseology. Al- 
though the genitive of the charge or penalty is common to all dia- 
lects, the genitive is nowhere else used so freely as in Cretan to 
denote the matter involved, e.g. KaTaSiKaKa-drd ro eKevdepo SeKa 
ararepav^, ro SoXo ireine shall condemn Mm to a fine of ten staters 
in the case of a freeman, five staters in the case of a slave, tS Se 
Kpovo Kpivev decide as to the time, di peKacrro eypajTai as is pre- 
scribed for each case. 

The Dative 

172. The adnOminal dative is more common than ia literary 
Greek, and is especially frequent in the introduction to inscriptions 
or their separate sections, e.g. El. d ppdrpa rok faXeioi^, Locr. rb 
refffiiov rot's HvTroKPa/MSioK Aoppots, Phoc. 6fji.o\oyia rd iroXei 
"Zreipicov ical rd Tro'Xet MeSemviav, Boeot. hiaiypa^d NiKape'rri, Att. 
drrap'X^e rddevaiai, ypafifiureii^ rrji ^ov\r]t Kal ran hdixa>i. 

For the dative instead of the genitive construction with various 
prepositions in Arcado-Cyprian, see 136.1. 

The Accusative 

173. A noteworthy accusative absolute construction is seen in 
Arc. el fj.e rraphera^afJLevo^ ro^ irevreicovra e to? rpiaKocrio<; unless 
the Fifty or the Three Hundred approve. This is an extension from 
instances where the participle agrees with the accusative of a pre- 
ceding clause, as Arc. fie vep,ev fie re ^evov fiere pacrrov, el p-e eiri 
doCvav hiKOvra. Of. also Arc. Kardrrep ro<; i-ma-vvicrrafievo'} . . . ye- 
yparrroi as is prescribed in the case of those who conspire. 

The Subjunctive 

174. The subjunctive without dv or ica in conditional, relative, 
and' temporal clauses, where the particle is regularly employed in 


Attic prose, though frequently omitted in Homer and sometimes 
elsewhere (Kiihner-Gerth II, pp. 426, 449, 474), is attested for 
several dialects, though always as the less common construction. 
Locr. at SeiXer avxopelv, at rt? avxopeei (no. 55.7,26 ; ten exam- 
ples with Ka in the same inscription). Arc. ei Se rts iinOudvi (Co- 
tUum), and so, probably. Arc. sIk iirl Sofia nrvp e-iroiae (no. 17.21) in 
contrast to usual eU av (see 134.2), Cypr. o i^opv^e, ol . . . loai 
(no. 19.25,31), Cret. dvyaTpl I SiSoi, when one gives it to the daugh- 
ter (Law-Code VI.l). Examples are not infrequent in later Locrian, 
Phocian, and Delphian inscriptions. 

The Optative 

175. In Elean the optative with Ka is the usual "form of prescrip- 
tions, e.g. crvvfiax^a k ea e/carov perea let there he alliance for a 
hundred years, fe/ca fivak Ka airoTivoi peKaa-ro'; let each pay a fine 
of ten minae. Similarly in Cyprian, but without Ke, e.g. ScaKoi vv 
^aa-iXeiK; the king shall give. 

The subjunctive without Ka is used in the same sense in a late 
Elean inscription (no. 61.32,36). 

176. 1. The optative in conditional clauses survives in several 
dialects, although, except in Elean, it is much less frequent than 
the subjunctive, and indeed is almost wholly eliminated in favor of 
the subjunctive in Attic-Ionic inscriptions, and in Lesbian, Thessa- 
lian, Boeotian, Cyprian, Heraclean, Theran, Coan, Ehodian, — in 
fact in the majority of dialects. Where the optative survives, it is 
sometimes used with a still recognizable differentiation from the 
subjunctive, but oftener without such. In the Gortynian Law-Code, 
which offers the fullest material, there are in conditional clauses 
about 50 optatives to about 80 subjunctives. Some of these occur 
where the contingency is obviously one more remotely anticipated 
(e.g. VII.9, hut if there should not he any free persons, as contem- 
plated in the preceding subjunctive clauses ; I.ll, hut if one should 
deny), others as mere variants of the subjunctive for parallel or 
even identical contingencies (e.g. opt. IX.18 = subj. VI.25). In 

176] SYNTAX 127 

Locrian, no. 56 A has the optative onlj- (cf. also the relative clause 
pon crvXda-ai), whereas no. 56 B and no. 55 have the subjunctive 
only. In Delphian, no. 51 has the subjunctive usually, but al S'e^t- 
opKeoifii A 17, in an oath, where Attic also -would have the optative, 
also ai 8' i^iopKeoi C6 (here indirect discourse), and ai Se n tov- 
Tcov irapfidXKoiTo 025, C50, Dl7; and in the numerous Phocian 
and Delphian manumission decrees the optative is of very frequent 
occurrence. The optative, beside the subjunctive, occurs also lq 
Corcyraean, Achaean, and in the Northwest Greek kolvti (e. g. no. 62). 
In Argolic, the archaic nos. 76 and 78 have the optative only, and 
this occurs in some of the later inscriptions (but in no. 84 the opta- 
tives are in iudirect discourse). In Arcadian, nos. 16 and 17 have 
the subjimctive only, but in no. 18 there are some examples of the 
optative. Even in the same clause the alternation of subjunctive 
and optative is not infrequent, e.g. Delph. ei he Ka fir] iroiTJ rj jii) 
irapa/Mevoi or el 8e firj nroieoi rj fir) irapafievrf. See also no. 18.6, note. 

2. In relative and temporal clauses of future time, the predomi- 
nance of the subjunctive is even more marked. Noteworthy is the 
Tean curse, no. 3, where oan<: with the optative is used in the curse 
proper, 11. 1-34, while in the postscript warning against harming 
the stele on which the curse is inscribed, U. 35-40, we find o? dv 
with the subjunctive. There are a few examples of the optative iu 
Cretan (Law-Code IV.14, and a few others), Locrian (see above), 
Delphian, and elsewhere (see 177). 

3. But in Elean the optative is uniformly employed in condi- 
tional, relative, and temporal clauses. For examples in conditional 
and relative clauses, see nos. 57-59. In the later no. 60 the sub- 
junctive also occurs, but with future perfect force. 

4. In final clauses the optative occurs, e.g. Heracl. Tab. 1.53 £f. 
eo-rao-a/ie? . . . avx<opi^avTe<; . . . , Aw? fir) KaraXvfJ.aKcoOrj': dBrfXco- 
deCrf, Lesb. no. 22.13 ff. eTrifJ.e'KecTdai . . . , tcardypevTov . . . , <u9 ice 

ififievoiev. But it is very rare, and most dialects have only the 
subjunctive with or without dv (ku, we), or sometimes the future 


177. There are some examples of xa with the optative in con- 
ditional clauses, etc., as sometimes ia Homer (Kiihner-Gerth II, 
pp. 482, 453), e.g. Locr. al k aSitcof avXoi (no. 56.4), Cret. at Ka . . . 
/IT) vvvaTo<i e'iri, Epid. at ica vyirj viv Troi'^a-ac (no. 84.60), Delph. el 
Se [Ti'i] Ka icjjdTTTOiTO, i-jret icd n irddoi, Corcyr. a^' pv k ap^d ye- 
voiTO, Ach. ecrre Ka airohoiev. 

The Imperative and the Infinitive 

178. Both the imperative and the infinitive are freely used in 
prescriptions, often side by side in the same inscription. In general 
the infinitive is more frequent in early, the imperative in later, lq- 
scriptions. For the Elean use of the optative with the same force, 
see 175. 


179. A peculiarity of word order which is worthy of mention is 
the position of rt? before Ka in the phrase at rk Ka, al he rt? Ka. 
This is the regular order in the West Greek dialects, as contrasted 
not only with Att.-Ion. edv ra, rjv tk, but with Arc. el S' dv rt?, Cypr. 
e Ke <TL<;, Lesb. at Ke tk, Thess. al [fi)d «e at?, Boeot. rj Se Ka rt?. 
Boeotian has also, though less frequently, the West Greek order 

7] Tt9 Ka. 


180. The following summaries, while not exhaustive, are intended 
to call attention to the most important characteristics of each group 
and dialect. These are indicated in the briefest manner, sometimes 
by a mere example, sufficient to identify, but not always to define, 
the phenomenon in question, and these brief indications are always 
to he interpreted in the light of the sections to which reference is 
made in each case. Of peculiarities in vocabulary only some few 
of the most striking are mentioned.^ 

To avoid needless repetition, many phenomena which are pecu- 
liar from the standpoint of Attic or Attic-Ionic, but are common 
to all or most of the other dialects, are usually omitted, e.g.

182. The chief characteristics of Ionic, as compared with Attic, 
are as follows. Some few of these are Ionic only (notably 1, also 
8, 9, 14, 20, 22), but most are common to various other dialects, some 
indeed to all except Attic, being repeated here from 180 to bring 
out the contrast with Attic more fully. A few peculiarities which 
are not general Ionic, but are common to all branches except West 
Ionic, are included.

183. East Ionic is further characterized by : 

1. Psilosis. 57. 2. ao, eo = av, ev from fourth century on. 33. 
3. Short-vowel subj. of o--aorist. 150. 

184. Chian. The dialect of Chios contains a few special charac- 
teristics, which are of Aeolic origin : 

1. 3 pi. Xd^coiatv, irprj^oLo-iv, etc., with la from va: 77.3. 

2. Inflected cardinals, Sskcov, TrevTrjKovrmv, etc. 116. 
Note also jeymveco call aloud, as in Homer. 

a. The Aeolio doubling of nasals (73 ff.) is seen in tlie names of the 
mountain XltXiwaiov in Chios and the promontory "Apyevi/oi/ opposite Chios, 
also in the personal name ^awodtfiK in an inscription of Erythrae. Like- 
wise Aeolic is the Phocaean Ztovi;((7ios) , 19.1. All these features are relics 
of a time when the line between the Aeolic and the Ionic colonies was far- 
ther south than in the historical period. 

185. Central Ionic differs from East Ionic in the absence of psi- 
losis, etc. (183). Note also the restricted use of H, i.e. only = i? from 
a, in the early inscriptions of some of the islands. 4.6. 

186. West Ionic, or Euboean, differs from the other divisions of 
Ionic as follows : 

1. TT as in Attic, not aa-. 81 5. tovtu, rovrei, ivrovOa = tuv- 

2. pp as in Attic, not pa: 80 ra, TavTrjL, evravda. 124 

3. |e'z/09 etc. as in Attic, not |et- 6. -kXc't??, gen. -Kkea. 108.1a

4. -et, -04 from -Tyt, -cot (in Ere- as often in Attic (East and 

■tria about 400 B.C.). 39 a Central Ion. -to?). 109.5 

8. elv beside eti^at. 160 

187. Eretrian. In addition to the other Euboean peculiarities, 
the dialect of Eretria, seen in inscriptions of Eretria and Oropus, is 
specifically characterized by the rhotacism of intervocalic <y, as 
exovpiv = exovaiv, 60.3. The use of av (Oropus), idv (Eretria) is 
due to Attic influence. 

188. Attic influence. Ionic was the first of all dialects to yield 
to Attic mfluence, and after the fifth century there are few inscrip- 
tions that are whoUy free from Attic forms. See 277. 


Aecado-Cypkian ^

/cat). 134.3 8. -Kperj}'! = -Kparrj';. 49.2 

190. Characteristics common to Arcado-Cyprian and various 
other dialects (1 Att.-Ion., 2 Ion., 3-6 AeoL, 7 KW.Grk.) : ^ 

1. Infin. in -vai. 154.1 9. e? = e| before cons, (but 

2. ^oXofiM = ^ovXofiai. 75 & Cypr. also e|). 100 

3. aTTu = aTTo. 22 10. Masc. o--stems, ace. sg. -j]v

8. r), (0 = spurious ei, ov. 25 13. Article as relative. 126 

191. Noteworthy is the considerable number of words or mean- 
ings which are otherwise known only, or with rare exceptions, as 
poetical, mainly Homeric. Some of the most striking examples are : 

1) In Arcadian and Cyprian, ala-a share (also Lac), ot(f)os 
alone, evxo\d prayer or imprecation. 

2) In Arcadian. Seafiai, airvat summon, KeXevdo^ road, Zcofia 
temple, afiap (but see no. 16.21, note). 

3) In Cyprian, pdva^, avcbym, avrdp, e'A,os meadow, Ijarijp, KaaC- 
yvTiTO'! (also Lesb. ; possibly Thess. KaTiyv[eiTO<;'\), y(^pavofjiai border 
on (Horn. XP'^vco graze), iSe, vv (also Boeot. 134.5). 

1 Several of the characteristics cited below under the head of Arcadian or of 
Cyprian, for which corresponding forms are lacking or ambiguous in the other 
dialect, probably are also Arcado-Cyprian. See also 199. 

" In this and similar captions "special" is not to be taken too rigorously. 
Some few peculiarities of which occasional examples are found elsewhere are 
included, e. g., in this section, Iv = iv, which is regularly found only in Arcado- 
Cyprian, but of which there are a few examples elsewhere.

195. External influence in the dialect. The fact that ko? and 
£49, agreeing with Cyprian, are found only in one early iascription 
(no. 16), while all others have kuC and rt?, is probably due to ex- 
ternal influence, though not specifically Attic. See 275. The Tegean 
building inscription (no. 18) of the third century shows some few 
Attic KOLvrj forms, as irXeov instead of ifXo'i, once gen. sg. -ov, etc. 
From the latter part of the third century on, when the chief Arca- 
dian cities belonged to the Achaean, and for a time to the Aetolian, 
League, the language employed in most of the inscriptions is neither 


Arcadian nor Attic Koivq, but the Doric, or in part Northwest Greek, 
Koivri. See 279. But the decree of Megalopolis (Ditt. Syll. 258) of 
about 200 B.C., though showing a remarkable mixture of forms, is 
mainly in the native dialect.

5. v = e'iri. 135.8 

199. It is uncertain whether the infinitive should be transcribed with 
-ev or -ev, the accusative plural with -os, -os, or -o(v)s. In the absence of 
any evidence to the contrary, we assume -ev and -os in agreement with Ar- 
cadian. But the dative singular is to be transcribed -ot, in spite of Arc. -ot, 
on account of the frequent omission of the final i (38) ; and the third plu- 
ral ending is transcribed with -trt, not -(y)(Ti, in spite of Arc. -vo-i, on account 
of <t>pov€oi (59.4). 

200. All dialectic inscriptions are in the Cyprian syllabary. The 
inscriptions in the Greek alphabet, beginning with the Macedonian 
period, are all in the Kocvq. 

1 Given under this head because of the agreement with Thessalian and Boeo- 
tian, although this agreement is accidental, Cyprian not sharing in the general 
phenomenon to which the Thessalian and Boeotian forms belong.

period on — and very few of the inscriptions are earlier — there is 
usually some admixture of Koivq forms, as avd beside 6v, nerd be- 
side TreSa, ore beside ora, etc. But in the main the dialect is 
employed in inscriptions till about the middle of the second cen- 
tury B. c. Its use in inscriptions of Eoman imperial times (cf. no. 24) 
represents an artificial revival. See 280.

214. Differences within Thessalian. The form of Thessalian 
which is best known is that of Pelasgiotis, represented mainly by 
inscriptions of Larissa, which show some special local peculiarities 
(213.8-10), Crannon, and Phalanna.^ The dialect of Thessaliotis, 
represented mainly by inscriptions of Pharsalus and Cierium, dif- 
fers from that of Thessaliotis in two important respects, 1) gen. sg. 
of o-stems in -o, -ov, not -oi, 2) pres. infin. of thematic verbs in -ev, 
-eiv, not -efiev. The early inscription, no. 33, from Thetonium in 
the neighborhood of Cierium, shows, in addition to these two points 
of difference, tli not Kt?, dat. pi. of consonant stems in -aiv (xp^- 
fiacnv) not -ea-at (as at Pharsalus as well as in Pelasgiotis), hv\d- 
peovTOi not -evroi, uncontracted gen. sg. in -ao, gen. sg. of father's 
name instead of patronymic adjective (? see no. 33.11, note). Late 
inscriptions of Cierium have dat. sg. -oi, -at, though at Pharsalus we 
find -ov, -a, just as in Pelasgiotis, and in no. 33 eV Taya beside iv 
arajiac points to -at, -oi. On SS = f in i^^avaKd(S)Sev, no. 33, see 
84 ; on tt beside crcr, see 81 &. 

From Histiaeotis and Perrhaebia the material is very scanty. 
From Magnesia there are a few fragmentary archaic inscriptions, 
but most are late and in the Attic koiv^. An early inscription of 
Phthiotis (Me^iVra? Uidoweio-; "ArrXovvi IG. IX.ii.l99) shows con- 
clusively, what was only natural to expect, that its dialect was also 
Thessalian. But nearly all the inscriptions date from the period of 
Aetolian domination and are in the Northwest Greek Koivq (279). 

Many of the characteristics cited in the preceding sections are 
as yet attested only in the inscriptions of Pelasgiotis, but, except 
where there is evidence to the contrary as stated, it is to be as- 
sumed provisionally that they are general Thessalian. For the 
points of agreement are more pronounced than the differences. 

215. External influence in the dialect. Occasional koiv^ forms 
appear in the inscriptions of the third and second centuries B.C., 
especially avd, cnro, irepl, Kara, he, gen. sg. instead of patronymic 

1 Really in Perrhaebia, so far as this was recognised ^ 9, distinct divisioil of 
Thessaly, but in the part near Pelasgiotis, 




adjective, t) (not et), (not yivv/iai), etc. But the dialect as a 
whole is employed in inscriptions until about the end of the second 
century b.c. and occasionally later.

219. In common with Thessalian only. See 204. 


220. Special Boeotian. Most of the peculiarities of the vowel- 
system (221) also belong here : 

1. eV? = ef before vowels. 100 4. eivi^av = rjveyteav. 144 a 

2. eTTTrao-t? = e'/t7raa-t9. 69.4 6. ^eiXofj^ai = ^ovXofiac. 75 

3. ovTO<;, ovra, etc. 124 6. Hypocoristics ia -ei. 108.2 

221. The Boeotian vowel-system. ' The most striking and obvious 
characteristic of Boeotian lies in its vowel-system. One peculiarity 
consists merely in the retention of the original sound, namely that 
of V as 11. But even this led to a change ia spelling to ov, while 
on the other hand the v with its Attic value of m as a basis was 
used to indicate approximately the sound, probably o, which the 
diphthong oi had come to have. See 24, 30. The other peculiari- 
ties consist in changes of diphthongs to monophthongs and of more 
open to closer vowels, such as eventually prevailed everywhere and 
led to the Modern Greek pronunciation. 

The chief orthographical peculiarities, with the approximate date 
of their introduction, are as follows : 

I = e before vowels. 9.2. V cent. B.C. (in the epichoric alphabet 
t, e, ei, h) 

I = et. 


V ceni 

b. B.C. 


Tj = ai. 


About 400 


ei = T], 





ov = V. 





lOV = V. 





V = 01. 





ei = 01. 


II cent. 


(but great inconsistency in the spell- 
ing. v = v and ot = ot also fre- 
quent till near end of III cent.) 


222. External influence. Although Boeotia was for a short time 
in the Aetolian League, there are no Boeotian inscriptions in the 
Northwest Greek Koivrj. But there are some scattered examples of 
the dative plural of consonant stems in -oi<;, as ^'71;? (al^ot?) etc., 
and the appearance of o-t = ad (85.1) and Sa/jLieoe/iev, SafjLio)ovTe<; 
(159) in some late inscriptions of Orchomenos is also probably due 
to Aetohan influence. The influence of the Attic Koivri becomes con- 
siderable toward the end of the third century B.C., and some inscrip- 
tions or portions of inscriptions are wholly in /coh'tj, e.g. the formal 


contract in the Nicareta inscription (no. 43. VI). But most of the 
inscriptions are substantially dialectic until the second half of the 
second century B.C. 

223. General West Greek characteristics : 

1. SiBcori etc. Eetention of t in the verb-endings -ti, -vti, in /rt- 

KUTi and the hundreds in -kcitcoc, in ttoti (Cret.Tro/art), IIoTet- 
Sdv, TV, and some other words which show the change to o- in 
the East Greek dialects. 61 

2. (/r)iKaTt = eiA:oo-i. 116 witha 12. otto) = dTro'^ei/, etc. 132.7 

3. rpt.aKa.TiOL etc. = -Koenoi. 13. <^epo|i€S etc. 138.3

6. iap6<; (lap6<i) = iep6<;. 13.1 17. TeTpdoKOVTa^reTTapaKOVTa. 

7. "A/ara/iii? ="A/0Te/it9. But 116

8. Ka, TOKa, TTOKa, oku, ya. 13.3 19. e/u.e'o? = i/xov; etc. 118.3 h 

9. ■7rpaT0<; = Tr/seoTO?. 114.1 20. rj/Mcra-o'} = rj/jLia-v;. 61.6 

10. oTrei = oTTOv, etc. 132.2 21. 6Se\6^ = o/3o\o?. 49.3 

11. OTTT} etc. 132.6 22. Word-order at rt? ku. 179 

a. Although, only a part of these characteristics are actually quotable 
from every one of the West Greek dialects, some indeed from only a few, 
it is probable that, except for the divergence of Cretan in 5 and 7, they 
■were common to all, and that the absence of examples in any dialect is 
accidental. Thus, forms like <^£/9o/xc$ are attested for Phocian and most of 
the Doric dialects, but there is no occurrence of a first plural form in Lo- 
crian and Elean, and in Rhodian only from the time when -/itv had been 
introduced from the kolv^, just as it was at Delphi before the end of the 
fourth century b. c. The early substitution of the kolvq forms of the numer- 
als and the rare occurrence of the personal pronouns in inscriptions, account 
for the incomplete representation of 2, 3, 16-19. 

6. The first ten of these characteristics are also Boeotian (217), several 
also Thessalian (210), and a few also Arcadian. 

224. There are various other phenomena which are common to the 
West Greek dialects, but are not confined to them even iu the widest 
application of the term. Several of those mentioned in 180 are often 


casually referred to as " Doric," e.g. al = el, ^? = ^v, a/ie?, edev, ira/ia, 
iKco, but none of them has any claim to be regarded as specifically 
West Greek, with the possible exception of 77 from ae (41.1 with a). 

a. Even of the peculiarities cited in 223 some consist merely in the reten- 
tion of the original forms which must have! been universal at one time ; and 
that TOL, Tat or pron. datives like i/uv still existed in East Greek in the his- 
torical period is shown by their appearance in Homer. Some others also 
may prove to be of wider scope, e.g. ottci, since ottov is, so far as we know, 
only Attic-Ionic. But so far as the present evidence of inscriptions goes, 
the peculiarities given in 223 are distinctly characteristic of West Greek. 

225. The declension of nouns in -ev<; with gen. sg. -e'o? ace. sg. -97 
is common to Delphian and the majority, but not all, of the Doric 
dialects. See 113.3. The 3 pi. imv. -i'to) is common to all the Doric 
dialects except Cretan, but the distribution of -z'tw and -vrmv does 
not coincide at all with the East and West Greek divisions. See 
140.3,4. There are various peculiarities which are West Greek in a 
limited sense, but demonstrably not general West Greek, e.g. t^w? 
= e'/BCiTO? (125.1), avToa-avTo'i (121.4), irpocrda = irpoaOe (133.1), 
'AireXKwv (49.3), \w = eeXat (Glossary), vt, ve'= Xt, Xd (72). The 
use of -tfcr) = -o'(B in certain verbs (162.1), of a-Kevom = (TKevd^co, and 
of yeXafii, e\afj,i (162.1,3,4) is West Greek, but how wide-spread is 
not yet clear. 

Northwest Greek 

226. The chief characteristics of Northwest Greek as distin- 
guished from Doric, including however some which are not com- 
mon to all the dialects of this group and some which are not 
strictly confined to them, are : 

1. eV = ek. Also Thess., Boeot., 6. TraWois etc., dat. pi. But in 

and Arc-Cypr. (Iv). 135.4 Delph. only late and due to 

2. /caXci/xez/o? etc. (El. -T]ij,evo<s). the N.W.Grk. Koivq. 107.3 

Also Boeot. 158 7. TeVopes etc., ace. pi. El.,Ach., 

3. <f> etc. But rare in Delph. but not Locr., and rare in 

12 Delph. 107.4 

4 o-T = a-e. 85.1 8. irapd at, with w. ace. Also 

5. 4We, Delph. AeWe = ¥<rTe. No Boeot., Thess., Meg., Lac. 

example in El. 135.4 136.2 


o. There are various other peculiarities the scope of which coincides even 
less definitely with the Northwest Greek dialects proper, but the spread of 
which in the northern part of Greece is noticeable, e. g. masc. ci-stems with 
nom. sg. -d, gen. sg. -as (105.1a, 2i), patronymics in -wSas or -dvSas (164.8), 
proper names in -K\eas (166.1). Note also the peculiarities common to Boeo- 
tiali and Thessalian only (204), most of which are not Aeolic.

231. External influence in the dialect. The temple accounts of 
353-325 B.C. show plain evidences of Attic influence. With the 
Aetolian domination (278-178 B.C.) a new element is added, that 
of the Northwest Greek Koivrj (see 279), resulting in the striking 
mixture (e.g. dat. pi. iravTeaai, iravToi's, Traat) seen in the numerous 


proxeny and manumission decrees, some of them as late as the 
first and second centuries a.d. There are even some few traces of 
Boeotian influence, as in iaTuvdco, deXwvdi, KXapmal (t = el) from 
Stiris, near the Boeotian boundary, and the spellings kti (= Kai), 
aa-ovXov in a decree of the Phocians. The Amphictionic decrees 
immediately following the Aetolian conquest are in the pure Attic 
Koiv^, but the dialect was gradually resumed, in the mixed form 
which it shows in the other classes' of inscriptions.

other material is from a much later period, when the Northwest 
Greek kolv^ was used, at least in western Locris. See 279. In the 
few inscriptions from eastern Locris the appearance of datives like 
y^prj/jidTecra-i (107.3) is noteworthy.

241. Koivrj influence. In the ammesty decree (no. 60), from the 
second half of the fourth century KC.,ap from ep is, with one excep- 
tion (va-rapiv), given up, as in drjXvrepav, ipa-evairepav (note also 


ipcrev- = earlier pappev-), and TrepC (earlier Trap, with apocope), 
though pa from pe is seen in Kanapalmv ; Trcio-^m has its usual form 
(earlier ■jrdaKw) ; the characteristic Elean words feppm = (fievyco in its 
technical sense, Sl(J>viov (^i<f)viov), and 'ypd^o<; have given place to 
the usual (fjevyto, hiirXdcnov, and ypdfifia. The Damocrates decree 
(no. 61), from the first half of the third century B.C., has ep, never 
ap, viro not inrd, and shows considerable koiv^ influence in the 
vocabulary, e.g. Kadap {ica6d)<s), ejiCTr)cn<}. 

On the other hand most of the characteristics of the dialect per- 
sist, and, in contrast to earlier inscriptions, the rhotacism of final 9 
is uniformly observed. Some of the differences between these two 
inscriptions and the earlier ones are due to chronological and local 
variation within the dialect, e.g. in both aa, not o-t, = ad, loss of 
intervocalic a ; in no. 60 tt, not SS, = f, dat. pi. (^vyd^ecrcn (not -ot?) ; 
in no. 61 subj. in prescriptions. Even in the earlier inscriptions 
there are some indications of local differences, but it is impossible 
with the present material to define their scope. 

The definite substitution of the Attic koivij in public inscriptions 
of Elis belongs to the end of the third century B.C.

244. Koivq influence. Inscriptions from the second century B.C. 
(from the fourth ajid third there is very little material) and later 
are not even in the Doric koiv^ (278), but substantially in the Attic 
Koivq, with but slight dialectic coloring. On the revival of the use 
of the dialect in some inscriptions of the second century a.d., prob- 
ably representing crudely M'hat still survived as a patois, see notes to

251. There are some differences between the dialect of Argos 
and that which appears in most of the inscriptions of Epidaurus 
and other cities of the Acte. But these are mainly, if not wholly, 
due to the fact that Attic influence was earlier and stronger in 
the east. Thus the loss of intervocalic o- and the retention of va 
are characteristics which persist in Argive inscriptions till within 
the second century B.C., but of which there are only a few exam- 
ples from Epidaurus. In general, Attic forms fere frequent in Epi- 
daurian inscriptions of the fourth century B.C., and later. 

Early inscriptions of Mycenae have e? and rd'; (less probably ro';) 
in contrast to Arg. iv<;, t6v<;. Of. Cret. toi beside t6v<;, 78. Erom 
Hermione are also found genitive singular and accusative plural

263. Koiv^ influence shows itself to a slight extent in the fourth 
century B.C. Most of the material is from the third century or 
later, and is in the Doric koiv^ (278), though with frequent reten- 
tion of the characteristic infinitive in -fieiv. In this mixed form 
the dialect is one of the longest to survive, many peculiarities still 
appearing in inscriptions of the first and second centuries a.d.

sacrificial calendar (nos. 101-103), already shows some Koivq forms, 
as iepevv beside iapev'i, elKd<s beside t«as, ace. pL rpek, ea-ria beside 
t(7Tta, etc., but preserves some forms which are never found later 
as leprji, Teraprrj^ (later always -ei, -ew, etc.). There are also some 
specific Ionic forms in use in Cos, as reXeo)?, cnroBe^avTO). Most of

273. Cretan, as commonly understood and as described above, is 
the dialect of the inscriptions of Gortyna (which is by far the most 
fiilly represented) Cnossos, Lyttos, Yaxos, and the other cities of the 
great central portion of Crete. This is also known more specifically 
as Central Cretan. Eastward, at Olus, Dreros, Latos, etc., the dia- 
lect is much less uniform ; and m the inscriptions of cities of the 
eastern extremity of the island, as Hierapytna, Praesos, and Itanos, 
and again in those from the cities of the western extremity, as 
Aptera, Cydonia, etc., many of the most striking Cretan character- 
istics are wholly lacking. Hence the terms East Cretan, usually 
reckoned from Hierapytna eastward, and ^^'est Cretan, from Lappa 
westward, are sometimes employed. But there is no sufficient 
ground for the behef that the East, West, and Central Cretan are 
fundamental divisions of the dialect, or that they reflect to any 
degree the various constituent elements in the population. The 
East and "West Cretan inscriptions, the latter very meager, are com- 
paratively late, and show a large degree of obvious koivij influence, 
partly Attic, pai'tly the Doric Koiv-q of the other islands. The 
absence of many of the Cretan characteristics may well be, and 
probably is, due to external influence, which was felt earlier and 
more strongly than in Central Crete, where, especially at Gortyna, 
most of the peculiarities persisted until Roman times. However, an 
actual divei'gence of development, for which external causes are at 
least not apparent, is to be recognized in the treatment of eo, which, 
instead of becoming lo, appears as o in close, (o in open, syllables 
(42.5 c, d), e.g. KOfffiovTe;, i-jraivrnfiev, at Hierapytna, Allaria, Cydo- 
nia (Koer/jL6vre<} also at Aptera, Oleros). There are also a few other 
local vaiiations. But, if we had ample material from the early 
period, it is highly probable that we should find that in the main 
the characteristics of Central Cretan were also general Ci'etan. 


274. Not only in earlier times, but also, in most parts of Greece, 
long after Attic had become the norm of literary prose, each state 
employed its own dialect, both in private and public monuments 
of internal concern, and in those of a more external or interstate 
character, such as decrees in honor of foreigners, decisions of inter- 
state arbitration, treaties, and, in general, communications between 
different states. Thus, for example, an honorary decree of a Boeo- 
tian city is in the Boeotian dialect, no matter whether the recipient 
is a citizen of Athens, Delphi, Alexandria, or Tarentum. If the 
Eleans honor Damocrates of Tenedos, the decree is in the Elean of 
the time (no. 61). If Mytilene honors Erythrae, the decree is in 
Lesbian and a copy in this form is set up at Erythrae. Such is the 
usual practice, examples of which could be cited by the hundred, 
and any departure from which is the exception. 

A decision of the Argives in a dispute between Melos and Cimo- 
lus is in the Argive dialect (no. 81). And so in general such deci- 
sions were regularly rendered in the dialect of the arbitrators, and 
inscribed in this form by the states involved in the dispute, usually 
at home, but sometimes also in one of the great religious centers, 
as Delos or Olympia. The extant texts of treaties are, as a rule, in 
the dialect of that party in whose territory the text was found, and 
it is to be assumed that the version inscribed by the other party in its 
home was likewise in its dialect. Thus, for example, the monetary 
agreement between Mytilene and Phocaea in the Lesbian version 
found at 'Mytilene (no. 21), the treaty of alliance between Elis and 
Heraea (in Arcadia) in the Elean version found at Olympia (no. 58). 

In communications between states using different dialects each 
party employs its own. For example, when Philip V of Macedon 


275] YAEIOUS F0E:MS of KOINH 155 

sends certain recommendations to tlie city of Larissa, he writes in 
the Attic KOLvi^, which had long been the language of the Macedo- 
nian court, but the decrees which the city passes in response are in 
the Thessalian dialect (no. 28). An inscription of Mytilene contains 
the text of a decree of the Aetolian league in favor of Mytilene, in 
its original Aetolian (Xorthwest Greek Koivq) form, a copy of which 
had been brought back by the Mytilenaean envoys, followed by a 
decree of ilytilene in Lesbian, quoting from the former decree and 
ordering the inscription of both. The regulations of the religious 
sanctuaries of Greece are drawn up in the dialect of the state which 
has direct charge of them, no less in the great Hellenic centers 
than in those of local fame. So, for example, an Amphictionic 
decree wliich is known to us only in the copy set up at Athens is 
in the Delphian dialect. 

275. In the period before the rise of Attic as the language of 
literary prose, no one dialect was in a position even to influence 
other dialects except \\"ithin narrow geographical limits. Yet it is 
probable that even then external influence was not wholly absent. 
There was no lack of intercourse to awaken consciousness of the 
peculiarities of one's own dialect as compared with those of others. 
Some of these pecuharities, especially such as were at variance 
with the practice of all or nearly all other dialects, might come to 
be regarded with disfavor as pro^^ncialisms, and be avoided in 
writing, and even in speech, or at least less consistently observed. 

For example, the Laconians and the Argives, who were well 
aware that under certain conditions they omitted, or pronounced 
as a mere breathing, what was a o- in the speech of most other Greeks, 
may have felt that this, unhke some of their other pecuharities, 
was a sort of weakness, wliich did not deserve to be exploited in 
writing. This would explain the inconsistency in the treatment of 
intervocalic <r (A or a) which is to be observed even in the early 
inscriptions of Laconia and Argohs, before any specific Attic influ- 
ence is possible. See 59.1,2. The fact that Arcadian £*? and /ca?, 
agreeing with Cyprian o-t? and /ca?, are found only in one early 


inscription (no. 16), while all others have tU and Kal, may also be 
ascribed to the combined influence of the other dialects, just as in 
a later period, when specific Attic influence is more probable, ttXo? 
was replaced by the usual irXeov, in spite of the fact that other 
equally marked peculiarities like Iv = iv were unaffected. The 
Eleans gave up even in the sixth century their use of f for the 8 
of other dialects, and if, as is likely, this was a concession in 
spelling only, it is none the less in point. 

276. Traces of Ionic influence are seen in the Doric islands, 
though the earliest evidence of this belongs rather to the history 
of the alphabet, namely the spread of the Ionic H = ■>? ■(4.6). . It is 
not accidental that ev for eo, though occasionally found in conti- 
nental Greece, is mainly found, outside of Ionic, in Ehodes, Cos, 
Thera, etc. In Cos occur such specific Ionic forms as TeXea^ and 
aTToSe^avTco. Even in. the fifth century the coins of the Ehodian 
lalysus show 'leXva-iov beside 'laXvaiov. Through the medium of 
the Doric koivt] of the other islands (278), some Ionic peculiarities 
have even spread to Crete, e.g. at Itanos ev=eo, eo=ev, and y^peco/ieda. 

277. The Attic tcoiv^. The foundation of the ultimate suprem- 
acy of Attic is to be sought in the political conditions of the fifth 
century B.C. In this we refer to something more than the fact, 
important as it is, that in this period Athens became the intellec- 
tual center of Greece and Attic the recognized language of literary 
prose. It is within the sphere of influence represented by the con- 
federacy of Delos and the Athenian empire that Attic made its first 
advance as an ordinary medium of communication. Of all dialects 
it is Ionic which shows the first signs of Attic influence and is the 
first to lose its identity as a distinct dialect. Some traces of this 
influence &ve seen even in the Ionic inscriptions of the fifth century, 
especially in the islands, and in the fourth century the majority of 
inscriptions show at least a mixture of Attic forms, and some, even 
from the early part of the century, are substantially Attic. After 
this, Ionic practically ceased to exist as a distinct dialect, though 
some Ionic peculiarities are occasionally found in much later times, 


mostly in proper names and certain conventional words or phrases. 
It is this Attic, already well-nigh established in Ionic territory, and 
in some respects modified by Ionic, that the Macedonians took up 
and spread, and whicb is henceforth termed the Koivrj, or, more 
specifically, the Attic koivij. 

The Macedonian period, indeed, forms the principal landmark in 
the evolution of a standard language in Greece. For in it the Attic 
Kocvq was spread over a vast territory and permanently established 
in places which were to become leading centers of Greek life. Yet 
this is only a stage, marking neither the beginning, as we have seen, 
nor, still less, the end. Excepting Ionic, and Cyprian, of which we 
have no later record, the other dialects, though showing more or 
less Koivi^ influence, remained in common use in inscriptions from 
one to upwards of three centuries later. But eventually the koivij 
attained complete supremacy both as the written and the spoken 
language, and from it is descended Modern Greek. The only .im- 
portant exception is the present Tsakonian" dialect, spoken in a 
small portion of Laconia, which is in part the offspring of the 
ancient Laconian. 

278. The Doric KOLvq. In most of the Doric dialects Attic influ- 
ence shows itself, to some extent, even in the fourth century B.C., 
and there was gradually evolved a type of modified Doric which 
prevails in the inscriptions of the last three centuries B.C., and is 
conveniently known as the Doric koiv^. This is substantially Doric, 
retaining a majority of the general West Greek characteristics, but 
with a tendency to eliminate local peculiarities, and with a strong 
admixture of forms from the Attic koivi]. In spite of some variety 
in the degree of mixture, and the retention of some local peculiari- 
ties, e.g. the infinitive in -fj-eiv at Rhodes, there is yet a very con- 
siderable unity, amply sufficient to justify us in speaking of a 
distinct type of kolvti. 

That the mixture is not a haphazard one is shown, for example, in 
the fact that the substitution of el for al, side by side with the re- 
tention of Ka, resulting in the hybrid e? «a, is very general, while the 


opposite, al av, is unknown. Iap6<s is replaced by iepo';. The numer- 
als show the forms of the Attic Koivrj, e.g. aoc. pi. rpeh for t/jw, 
reacrepe'; (or Tea-aape<;, TeTTape<;) not TeTopei, elicoai for l/can, recr- 
aepaKovra (recraapdicovTa, TerrapaKOVTa) for rerpcaKOVTa, ScaKotrioi 
etc. for -KaTLoi. In t-stems we usually find 7ro'\to9, 7ro'\te? retained, 
but TToXei, TToXea-i, ace. pi. iroXeif. Nouns in -eu? follow the Attic 
type except in the accusative singular, e.g. ^aaiXeco';, nom.-acc. pi. 
^aa-iXeh, but ace. sg. ^acriXr). So Att. ^acnXe<o<; is usual, but Att. 
TToXeffl? rare. The substitution of 04, ai for rot, tuC is frequent, but 
there is great variation in this respect, roi and ol occurring not 
infrequently even in the same inscription. Attic ov from eo is fre- 
quent, especially in verbs in -em. In some places, as far apart as 
Ehodes and Corcyra, we find inscriptions which have the verb-forms 
uniformly in ov, but the genitive singular of c-stems in -eos or 
-ev9, e.g. Ehod. iyKoXovvrai; etc. but 'IcroKparev; etc. (SGDI. 3758), 
Core. iroioiivTe's etc. but 'A-pi(TTOfji,eveo<; etc. (SGDI. 3206). Attic a 
from eft) is also more common in verbs than in nouns. In dialects 
which have ^iji'o? or fetvos etc. (54), such forms are often replaced 
by the Attic, especially in the case of •jrpo^evo'i. The first plural 
ending -yue? is generally replaced by -fiev, though it persists in some 

There are various other Attic forms which are not infrequent, 
but much less common than the dialect forms, e.g. (Sv beside emv, 
imperative ending -vtcov beside -vrca, tt/jcoto? beside Trpdroi, Trpo? 
beside ttotl. Many of the dialectic peculiarities persist with scarcely 
any intrusion of the corresponding Attic forms, e.g. d = Att.-Ion. tj, 
Ka, verb forms like SlScoti, (pepovTi, Doric future, future and aorist 
in f (142), dfie<; etc. Att. r], dv, and verb-forms like SiScoai, <f)e- 
povai are almost unknown except in the very last stages when the 
Attic KOivr) as a whole is practically established, a is sometimes 
found as late as the tMrd century a.d., but only as a bit of local 
color, perhaps artificial, in what is otherwise the Attic Koivrj. 

279. The Northwest Greek Koivri. This is very similar to the 
Doric Koivrj, showing about the same mixture of Attic with West 


Greek forms. But it differs from it ia that it retains two of the 
most characteristic features of the Northwest Greek dialects as 
compared with Doric, namely eV = ek, and the dative plural of con- 
sonant stems in -ot?. The use of this type is closely connected with 
the political power of the Aetolian league. We find it employed, 
in the third century B.c. and later, in Aetolia and in all decrees 
of the Aetolian league, in Western Locris (Naupactus was incor- 
porated in the league in 338 B.C., the rest of Western Locris some- 
what later), Phocis (Delplii was in the hands of the Aetolians by 
at least 290 B.C.), the land of the Aenianes, Malis and Phthiotis, 
all of which became Aetohan in the course of the third century B.C. 
Without doubt it was also used in Doris, from which we have no 
material, and in Eastern Locris. In Boeotia, which was in the 
Aetolian league but a short time (245-234 B.C.), it was never 
employed, though there are some few traces of its influence (222). 
The only extant decrees of Cephallenia and Ithaca, of about 
200 B.C., are in this same Northwest Greek koiv^, reminding us 
that Cephallenia, of which Ithaca was a dependency, was allied 
with the Aetolians (Polyb. 4.6). Parts of the Peloponnesus were 
also for a time under Aetohan domination, and the characteristic 
dative plural in -ots is found in Arcadia, Messenia (also iv = ek), 
and Laconia. There is one example even as far away as Crete 
(\t/ieVots SGDL4942 6; 159-138 B.C.), but clearly an importation. 
Aetolians had taken part in the internal wars of Crete, and Cretans 
had served in the armies of both the Aetolian and the Achaean 
leagues (Polyb. 4.53). 

The inscriptions of this period from Acarnania, Epirus, and 
Achaea, including decrees of the Acarnanian, Epirotan, and 
Achaean leagues, are not in the Northwest Greek Kotvrj as de- 
fined above (they do not have iv = el<:, or the dative plural of 
consonant stems in -ot?), but in the Doric koivij. At this time 
at least the speech of Acarnania and Epirus was not essentially 
different from that of Corcyra, nor that of Achaea from that of 
Corinth and Sicyon. 


In the Arcadian inscriptions of this period the native Arcadian 
forms are wholly or in part replaced by West Greek forms, and 
this is probably due in large part to the influence of the Doric 
K0IV1J of the Achaean league. But the Aetolians also held parts 
of Arcadia for a time, and, as noted above, there are some exam- 
ples of the dative plural in -oi<; borrowed from the Northwest 
Greek Koivrj. 

280. Some more detailed observations upon the time and extent 
of Koivrj influence in the various dialects have been made in connec- 
tion with the Summaries of Characteristics (180-273), and in the 
notes to some of the late inscriptions. 

What has just been noted in the case of the Doric Koivri is true 
in all dialects, namely, that of the dialectic peculiarities some are 
given up much earlier than others. Furthermore it is nothing xm- 
usual to find hybrid forms, part dialectic, part Koivrj, e.g. Doric 
future with Attic ov, as troirja-ovvn etc. frequently, — Boeot. aws, a 
contamination of a? and eco?, — Heracl. feiicaTi, a contamination of 
fUan and e'Uoa-i, — Boeot. ^uxovffi with dialectic present stem and 
personal ending, but Attic ^ (pure Boeot. SauovOi), — Boeot. eKjovoK 
with dialectic case-ending, but Attic ex- (pure Boeot. i(ry6v(o<;), — 
Thess. ace. pi. yivofievof; with dialectic case-ending, but Attic stem 
(pure Thess. 'yivv/ievo';), — Epid. eiopr) with Doric ending -rj from -ae, 
but Attic stem e<op- from *^o'/3-. 

Besides such hybrids, hyper-Doric or hyper-Aeolic forms are 
occasionally met with in late inscriptions, though less often than in 
our literary texts. Thus the Attic term e(f>ri^o<; (with original t), 
cf. Dor. rj^a), when adopted in other dialects, was sometimes given 
the pseudo-dialectic form e<j)a^o<;, e.g. in some late Doric and Les- 
bian inscriptions, in imitation of the frequent equivalence of dia- 
lectic a to Attic T). Conversely the Attic form was sometimes 
retained in opposition to what would be its true dialectic equiva- 
lent, as in Boeotian usually e<j>ri^o<;, rarely e<^et/3os. Similarly the 
Doric 'KpaicXrji! and its derivatives keep t) in Boeotian. Cf. also 
on Cret. IIvtio<;, 63. 


In Eoman imperial times the antiquarian interest in local dia- 
lects is reflected in the revival of their use in parts of Greece where 
for some two centuries previously the Attic Koivrj had been in gen- 
eral use, at least in inscriptions. So, for example, in the case of 
Lesbian (cf. no. 24), Laconian (cf. nos. 70-73), and to some extent 
in Elean, where examples of rhotacism reappear in the first and 
second centuries A.D. It is impossible to determine in every case 
whether this was a wholly artificial revival of a dialect which had 
long ceased to be spoken, or was an artificial elevation to written 
use of a dialect which had survived throughoiit the interval as a 
patois. The latter is true of Laconian (see 277, end, and note to 
nos. 70-73). But for most dialects we have no adequate evidence 
as to the length of their survival in spoken form. 


The brief introductory statement to each inscription gives its provenance 
and approximate date, with references to several of the most important col- 
lections. The extensive bibliographies in these collections make it unneces- 
sary to cite the numerous special discussions in periodicals etc., except 
in the case of a few recently discovered inscriptions. For the abbreviations 
employed, see pp. 281 ff. References to the collections are by the numbers 
of the inscriptions, unless otherwise stated, while those to periodicals are 
by pages. 

It has seemed unnecessary to state in the case of every inscription whether 
the alphabet is the epichoric or the ordinary Ionic, since this is generally 
obvious from the date given, as well as from the transcription. It may be 
taken for granted, unless otherwise stated, that inscriptions of the fifth cen- 
tury B.C. or earlier are in the epichoric alphabet, those of the fourth cen- 
tury B.C. or later in the Ionic. Hence comments on the form of the alphabet 
employed are added only in special cases. 

The transcription of texts in the older alphabet is such as to give the 
student some assistance, without confusing what is in the original and what 
is a matter of editing. The signs E and 0, when representing long vowels, 
no matter whether the later spelling is rj, to or «, ov, are transcribed simply 
e, o. The spiritus asper, when expressed in the original, is transcribed A, 
leaving the use of ' as a matter of editing. See p. 49, footnote. The use of 
the following signs is to be noted.

are also obscure readings due to the mutilation of the letters. But 
often this is not done, it being thought unnecessary in a work of this 
kind to repeat the full critical apparatus of other collections.

pillar was prepared and furnished with 
its Ionic inscription at Proconnesus, 
which was a colony of Miletus. The 
Attic version was added at Sigeum, 
which was already at this time occu- 
pied by Athenians. 

The divergence between A and the 
corresponding portion of B is partly 
due to the normal differences of dia- 
lect, e. g. Ion. KpriTrjpa with i; after p, 
irpvrav^utv = Att. irpvTaveTov^ and Top-

to Att. TO Hfp/WKpirSs. So iwoKpifT'^piov, 
in contrast to Att. iTrla-Tarov, is an Ionic 
form found elsewhere. Other differ- 

ences are due merely to the absence of 
signs for ri and w in the Attic alphabet, 
or are accidental, as efi,l in A, etfU in B, 
where the spelling ei at such an early

It is probable that this inscription dates 
from a period when the citizens had

come to terms temporarily with Lyg-

difficulties in the reading and interpre-

shows (cf. 1. 30), was a foreigner from 
Attic or Ionic territory. As such, and 
because his guilt was in question, his 
case is treated separately, and his pen- 
alty depends upon the decision of the 
oracle. — av: adv. 58a. — Kaxpive: Ka- 
Taicphr) aor. subj. 95, 149. — 15 ff. If

try houses in the mountains?). — l[i

the judges, have passed judgment upon 
the guilty parties as follows, namely 
that, having given up their inheritance, 
they shall forever be excluded from the 
temple, in the male line, it shall be well 
(propitious). But if any one permits 
anything else, contrary to these things, 
it shall be impious. — dirv[8]e8o|iCv[os],

to the effect that the deed of violence 
took place before he entered the tem-

TOTEE, which some transcribe t6t' ^e. 
But ^e = Hom. ^ev is impossible. The 
form to be expected is ^s, though unfor- 
tunately we can get this only by assum- 
ing that 0- has been omitted by mistake. 

17. Eegulations of the temple of 
Athena Alea. The first five para- 
graphs, 11. 1-20, deal with the rights 
of pasturage in Alea, the district in 
which the temple was situated and 
which was included in the temple 
property. The temple officials men- 
tioned are the hieromnemon, the chief 
administrator of the affairs of the tem- 
ple (also, in the plural, the board of 
administrators), the priest, and the hie- 
rothytes, a minor official charged with 
the technical details of the sacrifice, 
though in some places this title came 
to be one of high rank. The Fifty and 
the Three Hundred were, doubtless, 
civic bodies. 

The critical and difficult words 
are Ivipoppiev, ivij>opPurij,l>ii, plainly con- 
nected with tjiippa feed, ipopP'/i fod- 
der, (pop^ela halter. Starting from the 
derived meaning seen in tpop^ela, one 

may translate tie up, seize, but in 
11. 14-15 the seizure of small animals, 
contrasted with a tax of a drachma for 
large animals, seems extreme, espe- 
cially in connection with 11. 18-19. The 
interpretation impose a pasture tax is 
on the whole more satisfactory, though 
by this too the expression in 11. 14-15 
is strange, by apparent lack of con- 
trast. One must assume that the pas- 
ture tax was a fixed and merely nominal 
sum, and that the tax of one drachma 
for the larger animals was in excess of 
this. Hesychiushas^/i06p/3ioi'- reXJivriiui, 
which is parallel to ivoUiov house-rent, 
iWipAvMv harbor-dues, etc. From this 
would be derived h<f>oppiev impose a 
pasture tax, and from this again, as if 
from -(fu, IvipopPiap^Ss the imposition of a 
pasture tax. Cf. Solmsen,K.Z. XXXIV,

The Cyprian Syllabary 

Nearly all the Cyprian inscriptions are written in a special syllabary. 
This consists of signs for each of the five vowels — these being used where 
no consonant immediately precedes, that is initially and for the second 
element of diphthongs — and signs for each combination of consonant and 
following vowel, as ma, rne, etc. But there is no distinction between long 
and short vowels, nor, in the case of mutes, between surd, sonant, and 
aspirate. Hence the sign te (the transcription with t is a matter of conven- 
tion) may stand for te, rrj, Se, 87;, 6e., or 6ri. Nasals before consonants are 
not written, e.g. ati= a.(y)rL^ 

For a final consonant the sign containing the vowel e is used, e.g. kase 
= Ko.^. For groups of consonants the first is indicated by the sign contain- 
ing the vowel of the syllable to which this consonant belongs. That is, its 
vowel is determined by the following in the case of initial groups and con- 
sonant -I- liquid ; by the preceding in the case of liquid -t- consonant, and 
also o- -I- consonant (cf. 89.1). 1\ms potoline = tttoXlv, patiri= iraTpl,, 
euvere la sa tu = tvpptT&craTv, a ra leu ro = apyvpo, e se ta se = t<rTa<T€. Exam- 
ples of other groups are rare.^ 

1 In the Greek transcription the mutes are distinguished and the nasal before 
consonants is supplied in parentheses. But e and o, not 7;, a, are used, in accord- 
ance with the practice adopted for other inscriptions where the signs 77 and a are 
not in use. For some uncertainties in regard to the proper transcription, see 199. 

2 We find me ma name no i = luiivaiiAvot, ka si ke ne toise = Ka'a^iyverois but i ki 
mamenose = Ixixaixivoi, terekinija = Tipxvija, tipetera- = SupBepa-, -vanakoto 
se = -fdvaKTos. 


Words are separated by a special sign, but this is commonly, though not 
uniformly, omitted after the article, and sometimes in other groups of 
words. In such groups a final consonant is often treated as medial, hence 
tapotoline = Ta(v) irToki.v, et<^. 

19. Idalium. Probably V cent. b.c. SGDI.60. Hoffmannl.135. Sobn- 
sen 3. The first five lines only are given in the more exact syllabic tran- 
scription. In this I denotes the word separator, not the line division, 
which is indicated by numerals.

had recovered the gold and silver ob-

ple of Apollo. Por the special dialectic 
peculiarities, see 214. 

5. KevFcpverav : or Kcifepy^av ? See 
94.7. — 6. Kivra'ya Kevdra'yCai: inwar 
and peace. The phrase is plainly the 
equivalent of the usual koX iroKd/Mv xal 
dp-qiri)! (or iv TToXi/ujii ktX.), and is ex- 
plained by the fact that in early times, 
as also later in the time of Jason of 
Pherae, the raySs vf as the military head 
of the united Thessalians, appointed 
only in time of war. Jason of Pherae, 
in boasting of the military strength of 
the Thessalians on a war footing, ex- 
press this last by Srav rayevTjTai Ger- 
Ta\Ut, Srav rayds ivSdSe KaratTT^, Srav 
TayeiTfrairi, xard, QerToXlav (Xen.Hell. 
6.1.8,9,12). So To7d(one would expect 
Tayla) and arayla (cf . amaida time wJien^ 
no K6<rfu}s was in office) were times of 
war and peace respectively. But the 
use of the phrase does not necessarily 
show that the institution under which 
it originated was in vogue at the time of 
this inscription ; and, in any case, the 
To74sof 1. 8 is the municipal official, like 
the Tayol of no. 28. 

1, 10. It is obvious that the text as 
it stands is incomplete' both at the 
beginning and the end, although the 
bronze tablet on which it is inscribed 
is intact. A horizontal line was cut in 
the bronze to indicate that 1. 1 did not 
belong with the following. Either this 
is one of a connected series of tablets, 
in which case 1. 1 forms the conclusion 
of a decree given on a preceding tablet, 
while the present decree was concluded 
on the following tablet; or, as seems 
on the whole more likely, 1. 1 is the 
conclusion of the present decree, and 
was added at the top \Ylien it was 
found that no space was left at the 
bottom. In this case we read "Op^o-Tao 
icpe/cpdres (cf. 108.2) or, with correc- 
tion, $epe(cpdTe(o)! huKopiovros ^CKovIko 
hvios, when Orestes, son of Pherecrates 
son of Philonicus, was u\ap6s. The use 
of the gen . instead of the patronymic ad- 
jective would be only another instance 
(see 214) of divergence from the usual 
Thessalian. The addition of the grand- 
father's name is unusual, but not un- 
precedented (cf. e.g. no. 20), likewise 
the use of vl6s instead of the gen. alone 
(cf . e.g. SGDI. 1 183, Arc. ; Ditt. Syll.478, 
Stratus ; irais often so used in Lesbian 
and Cyprian). i\ap6s occurs in Arist.

43. The Nicareta inscription. Nica- 
reta, daughter of Theon, of Thespiae, 
had lent various sums of money to the 
city of Orchomenus, for which she held 
against it certain notes, generally re- 
ferred to as oiirepa/uplai (once, 1. 55 f., 
as rds iiarpd^is). These are recorded in 
rV. When Nicareta appeared at Or- 
chomenus to collect these (11.44H.), the 
city was unable to meet them, and an 
agreement was entered into according 
to which the city was to pay her the 
sum of 18,833 drachmas within a cer- 
tain time and the polemarchs were to 
give her a personal contract for the 
payment. The text of the agreement 
(o/mkoyi) is given in VII, and of the con- 
tract ((roiJ77po0o!), written in the koiv-^, 
in VI. The sum of 18,833 drachmas is 
more than the total of the notes re- 
corded in IV (17,585 dr., 2 obols), but 
probably less than they amounted to 
with the normal penalties for delayed 
payment, For the phrase 5 M0w7a,y 

(1. 135, cf. 1. 16), which they persuaded

to receive a subsidy of money and land 
from the Stlrians. 

65. Law governing the relations be- 
tween the Eastern Locrian colonists at 
Naupactus and the mother country. 
This does not refer to the founding of 
Naupactus, which was much earlier. 
Colonists are called &toikol from the 
point of view of the mother country, 
but ^ToiKoi as here (iirlfoifoi) from the 
point of view of their new home. The 
Eastern Locrians are referred to ethni- 
cally as Hypocnemidians (of which 
Epicnemidians is an equivalent), polit- 
ically as Opuntians, since Opus was 
the seat of government, the two terms 
standing in the same relation as Boeo- 
tian and Theban. 

It is probable that one copy was set 
up at Opus, with another at Naupac- 
tus, and that the present tablet is still 
another copy, which with the addition 
of the last sentence, stating that simi- 
lar relations are to subsist between col- 
onists from Chaleion and the mother 
city, was set up at Chaleion, from 
which place it may easily have found 
its way to Galaxidi. 

In both this and the following in- 
scription a single letter is used for 
"double consonants, not only in the in- 
terior of a word, as 0a\(i{<r)<Tas, but 
often in sentence combination, as Ki,{T) 
TovSe. So i{d) Sa/io, i(\) Xi/i^j-os, etc., 
with assimilation of in (100); similarly 

^(i") NavTdKTo (once ^7 NouTriiKTo), in 
contrast to which ip NaiiraicTov, iv TSav- 
T&KToi with original iv are always writ^ 
ten out. Cf. also (in no. 56) ti(s) avKoi, 
&<:) (TuXIj', d.SlKo(s) avKm, in view of 
which the reading Aii7ro(s) ^ivov (no. 
55.2), which is generally though not 
universally adopted, is not a violent 
correction. No other Greek inscription 
has so many examples of p as no. 56, 
where it is uniformly employed before 
or po. In no. 56 it is no longer used. 
In no. 55 lengthened 6 is expressed by 
El, lengthened c by in the genitive 
singular, OV in the accusative plural. 
But in no. 56 always E and 0. See 
85 d. No. 55, beginning in 1. 11, is 
divided into paragraphs by the letters 

No. 55 exhibits many instances of 
repetition (see 1. 3, note), and some of 
omission of what is essential to clear- 
ness (e. g. the subject of iwoedvei. 1. 30), 
and in general the style of both inscrip- 
tions is crude and obscure.

those of the people and those of the mem- 
bers of the societies, himself and his de- 
scendants forever. The colonists of the 
H. Locrians are not to pay taxes among 
the S. Locrians, until one becomes a H. 
Locrian again. In 6<na Xoj'x'^''e»' Kal

ments inscribed by different hands, as 
appears from the forms of the letters, 
which also show, together with the ab- 
sence of 9, that both are later than

1. 8, is a treaty between Oeanthea and 
Chaleion of the kind known as ri/ipo- 
XoK or crvix^oKd (the latter in 1. 15). It 
is for the protection of foreigners, that 
is citizens of other Greek states, visit- 
ing either city from reprisal at the 
hands of citizens of the other. Such 
reprisal or seizure in enforcement of 
claims was freely employed, so far as 
it was not specifically regulated by 
treaty. JTor graphic peculiarities see 
no. 55, introductory note.

The property of a foreigner one may 
carry off from the sea without being sub- 
ject to reprisal, except from the harbor 
of each city. If one makes a seizure 
unlawfully, four drachmas (is the peiir- 
alty); and if he holds what has been 
seized for more than ten days, he shall 
owe half a^ much again as the amount 
he seized. If a Chaleian sojourns more 
than a month in Oeanthea or an Oean-

the ^evodUai (the judges in cases involv- 
ing the rights of foreigners) are divided 
in opinion, the foreigner who is plain- 
tiff {owdyor = 6 4irdyiav) shall choose ju- 
rors from the best citizens, but exclusive 
of his proxenus and private host (who 
would be prejudiced in his fa,voT), fif- 
teen men in cases involving a mina or 
more, nine men in cases involving less. 
If citizen proceeds against citizen under 
the terms of the treaty, the magistrates 
shall choose the jurors from the best citi- 
zens, after having sworn the quintuple 
oath (i.e. oath by five gods). The ju- 
rors shall take the same oath, and the 
majority shall decide. 

57. This covenant for the Eleans. 
(An accused man''s) gens and family 
and his property shall be immune. If 
any one brings a charge against a male 
citizen of Mis, if he who holds the high- 
est office and the /Sao-iXeis do not impose 
the fines, let each of those who fail to 
impose them pay a penalty of ten mi- 
nae dedicated to Olympian Zeus. - Let 
the Sellanodica enforce this, and let the 
body of demiurgi enforce the other fines 
(which they had neglected to impose). 
If he (the Hellanodica) does not enforce 
this, let him pay double the penalty in his 

accounting (or in the body of the fuurrpol?). 
If any one maltreats one who is accused 
in a matter involving fines, let him be 
held to a fine of ten minae, if he does so 
wittingly. And let the scribe of the gens 
suffer the same penalty if he wrongs any 
one. This tablet sacred at Olympia. 

The numerous interpretations of this 
inscription have differed fundamen- 
tally. According to that preferred here 
the object of the decree is to do away 
with the liability which under primitive 
conditions, such as survived longer in 
Elis than elsewhere, had attached to 
the whole gens and family of an accused 
person, also to prevent confiscation of 
his property and personal violence, and 
to prescribe the manner in which pen- 
alties were to be imposed.

the sacrifice of an ox and by complete 
purification, and the Beapis in the same 
way. If any one pronounces judgment 
contrary to the regulation, this judgment 
shall be void, but the decree of the people 
shall be final in deciding. Onemaymake 
any change in the regulations which 
seems desirable in the sight of the god 
(136.3), withdrawing or adding with the 
approval of the whole council of the Five 
Hundred and the people in full assem- 
bly. One may make changes three times, 
adding and withdrawing. — The resto- 
ration and interpretation of the last 
sentence, (5iKi)CTi ktK., is uncertain. 
In 1. 4 the adverb af\ati4os (see 55) is 
used loosely where we should expect 
an adjective in agreement with /SoXai 
or trevraKaTlov. 

60. But one shall not exile the chil- 
dren {of an exile) either male or female, 
under any circumstances, nor confiscate 
the property. If any one exiles them or 
confiscates the property, he shall be sub- 
ject to trial before (in the name of) 
Olympian Zeus on a capital charge, and 
any one who wishes may bring the charge 
against him with impunity. And it shall 
be permitted, even in case they have ex- 
iled any, to any one who wishes to return 


and be free from punishment so fa 
concerns matters happening later than 
the time of the demiurgi under Pyrrhon. 
Those next of kin shall not sell or send 
off the property of the exiles, and if one 
does any of these things contrary to the 
regulation, he shall pay double the 
amount sent off and sold. If any one 
defaces the stele, he shall be punished 
like one guilty of sacrilege. 

Several times during the fourth cen- 
tury b.c. the oligarchy and democracy 
alternated in power in Elis, with re- 
sulting banishment and recall of exiles. 
It is probable that this decree belongs 
to the Macedonian period and perhaps 
refers to the exiles of 336 b.c. who 
were recalled in 335 b.c. Cf. Arrianl.

It is a supplementary decree to another 
on the same subject, as is shown by S4 
in the first sentence after the introduc- 
tory formula, and the use of yeveatp 
without modifier, which must be under- 
stood from the preceding. On the dia- 
lect as compared with that of the earlier 
inscriptions, see 241.

65. Statements of two deposits of 
money made by a certain Xuthias, son 
of Philachaeus, and tlie conditions for 
their future disbursement. The place 
of deposit was without doubt the tem- 
ple of Athena Alea in Tegea, tlie Greek 
temples often being used for such pur- 
poses. But the dialect is not Arcadian, 
and must therefore represent that of a 
foreign depositor. The most natural 
assumption is that Xuthias was from 
the neighboring Laconia, and we are 
expressly informed (of. Athen. 6.233) 
that the Spartans used to deposit money 
with the Arcadians to evade tlie law 
against holding private property. It 
has been suggested, partly on account 
of the names (Xuthias, Philachaeus), 
but mainly because of the retention of 

intervocalic o- {yi4(ru>t, e/Sdo-om), that 
Xuthias was not a Spartan proper, but 
an Achaean perioecus. But there is no 
good evidence that the perioeci differed 
in speech from the Spartans at this 
time, and the retention of intervocalic 
T and of antevocalic e (f ^rea) is suffi- 
ciently explained by the fact that the 
document was intended for use outside 
of Laconia. See 59.1, 275. 

A. For Xuthias the son of Phila- 
chaeus {are deposited) two hundred mi- 
nae. If he lives, let him come and take 
it, but if he dies, it shall belong to his 
children five years after they reach the 
age of puberty. If there are no children, 
it shall belong to those designated by law 
as heirs. The Tegeans shall decide ac- 
cording to the law. 

B. This was inscribed later than A, 
which was thereupon canceled, as 
shown by its mutilation. The Tegean 
engraver is responsible for the use of 
ct instead of al, the subj, foe (of. 149)

should set up in the shrine a statue in 
honor of Andreas his fellow-ephor, and 
that he would then consult the oracle

Spiav. . . di<«rrd/i6i' is unusual, but other 
possible interpretations are equally dif- 
ficult in this respect. — hov kt\. : infin.

dedicated, the prize itself, was an iron 
sickle, which was let into a socket, 
with which each of the stone slahs is 
provided, some with two (as nos. 70, 
73), or even three. Of the contests, one 
is called Kaa-(rripar6piv, KaBBijpaTbpiv, KaB- 
6npaT&pu>v, etc., i.e. KaTaSripariptov, not 
an actual chase of wild beasts, but 
some athletic game called the hunt. 
The fiQa, i.e." lioSira, was of course a 
musical contest. The word which is 
variously spelled KaiX[^]ai', KeKSav, kc- 
X?a, KcKoiav, Ke\4av, probably from the 
root seen in K^XaSos, KeXad^a, also de- 
notes a musical contest. That the con- 
tests were between boys is shown by 
the use of TaidiKdv in many of the dedi- 
cations, e.g. veiKdap t4 iratSm&i' p,iJia win- 
ning the boys' contest in music {/iiia dat. 
sg.), and by the appearance of the |8ou- 
aySp leader of the /SoCai, the bands in 
which the Spartan boys were trained, 
orpovayhp p,iKKi.x^SSop.(vwv, leader of boys 
in th^ir tenth yea,r. According to a ^\os^ 

to Herodotus, the Spartan boy in the 
third year of his training was called 
luKt^6p.emt. This is from Dor. iukk6s = 
ixiKpbi, while lUKKtxtSSS/ievos is from a 
diminutive in -ixos (original or for -«os? 
Cf. TaiSixiv beside ■rraiSiKir). 

A few of the dedications are in the 
KoiPi}, and a few show Doric forms with- 
out the specific Laoonian coloring, e.g. 
viKdira!. But most of them, like those 
given here, represent an artificial re- 
vival of the local dialect, that is, arti- 
ficial as regards its use in inscriptions, 
but probably reflecting, though only 
crudely and with great inconsistency 
in spelling (e.g. in the use of <r = 6), 
the form of speech which still survived 
as a patois among the Laconian peas- 
ants. Some of the peculiarities in spell- 
ing are not characteristic of Laconian 
especially, but of the late period, e.g. 
ei = I in veixdavrep etc. , oi for o in Bwp- 

eia, final « for S' in Bupeia, etc.

76. If there is no body of demiurgi, 
the hieromnemones (appointed) to (the 
heroum) of Perseus shall judge between 
the parents according to what has been 
decreed. This is only the conclusion of 
an inscription which must liave been 
on the stone which once rested upon the 
base containing this line. Pausanias re- 
ports a heroum of Perseus on the road 
from Mycenae to Argos. It is probable 
that boys were employed in the cult 
and that disputes arose among the par- 
ents with regard to their appointment. 
For Tofs the stone has t o- 1. 

77. On the face of the stone, just 
below the inscription, is a rectangular 
cutting, with dowel holes, evidently in- 
tended for the reception of a tablet. 
This was the o-rdXo, while the reXa/jio 
(probably only an error for TcKa/jAv), 
properly support, pedestal, refers to the 
whole stone in which the o-rdXa was set, 
and which would itself be called a 
(ttijXt; in Attic. In several inscriptions 
from the region of the Euxine reXo- 
lidiv is actually used as the equivalent 
of <rTi/i\ri, e.g. d.vayp6.\j/avTa rb \j/&<l>i.<Tfi.a 
toOto els TeKa/iSva \evKoB \l6ou ivaBifuii 
els t4 Up6i> ToO 'A7r6XXwTOs (SGDI.3078, 
Mesembria). This use is doubtless of 
Megarian origin, and is closely allied 
to that seen here at Argos, though with 
complete loss of the original notion of 

support. For the collocation of a-rdXa 
and TcXa/id here, of. d-vdpms Kal ri ir^^Xas,

The hieromnemones consist of a rep- 
resentative of each of four tribes, of 
which the Au^nSxes, whose representa- 
tive presides, the 'TXXeis, and the Xld/i- 
0iiXot, are the three tribes common to 
all Doric states, while the "Tpv&Buu are 
attested only for Argolis. Cf. Steph.

78. Anactofindemnityforthe man- 
agement of the treasury of Athena, 
probably with reference to some spe- 
cific irregularity which had occurred. 
"Without such an act, persons who pro- 
posed or put to vote a proposition to 
use sacred funds for public purposes 
were liable to punishment. Cf. Time. 
2.24, 8.15, Ditt.Syll.21, Hicks 49.45 fl. 

In the matter of the treasures of 
Athena, if any magistrate calls to ac- 
count the council under the presidency 
of Ariston or the body of dprvvai or any 
treasurer, or if any one entertains or 
brings suit on account of the submission 
(to the assembly) of the proposals or on 
accoiint of the action of the assembly, 
he shall be banished and his property 
be confiscated to the treasury of Athena.

110. The famous Gortynian Law- 
Code. Altliough conveniently so desig- 
nated, it is not of coui-se a complete 
code of laws, but a series of regulations 
on various subjects, complete in itself, 
as shown by the fiiot at the beginning 
and the unused space at the end of the 
last column. The state of the alphabet 
(there are no signs for </> and x, which 
are not distinguished from t and k. 
See 4.1), the forms of the lettera, and 
the direction of the writing (pov(rTpo<pri- 
S&v), are such as are usually character- 
istic of the sixth century B.C., but tlie 
general style of the writing, precise 
and regular, points to a later date. It 
is now generally believed that the de- 
velopment of the alphabet was slower 
in Crete than elsewhere, and that the 
Code is of the fifth century b.c, prob- 
ably about the middle of it. There are 
also other inscriptions from Gortyna 
containing regulations of a similar 
character but on different subjects, one 
series of seven columns being known 
sometimes as the Second Code (SGDI. 

Although a sign for 7; is lacking in 
the Law-Code, the B had already been 
used with this value in an earlier period, 
and H is regularly so used in the in- 
scriptions of the "North Wall," which 

are not much later than the Law-Code. 
The proper transcription of E in the 
Law-Code is in certain classes of forms 
uncertain, since there is evidence of 
both c and 1; from inscriptions which 
contain a sign for -q. Such are the in- 
finitives of conti-act verbs in -EN {-iv 
or -cK?), and the infinitives in -MEN 
(-yuex or -ij,ev ?) . The earlier inscriptions 
with B have ivfoiniv, ^/jtev, while the 
later ones with H have /mX^v, ^yuijx. The 
transcription followed in our text is 
that which accords with the forms of 
the earlier inscriptions. The prohibi- 
tive M E has been transcribed ujii- 
formly fii, although the inscriptions 
which have H often have fj,i beside /ii) 
before words beginning with a vowel 
(93). The same inscriptions show that 
aor. subj. \ayd<rci etc. should be so 
transcribed, not \ayd(rh etc. See 150.

days. But if he does not release him, 
{the judge) shall condemn him to a fine 
of a stater in the case of a free man, a 
drachma in the case of a slave, for each 
day until he releases him; and as to the 
time, the judge shall decide under oath. 
— For the use of the genitive in to 
IXevffipo, TO SoXo, see 171. Similarly t5 
irevreKovTcurTaTipo 11.38. Observe the 
clear distinction in use, here and else- 
where, between SiicdSSei'and Kpivev. The 
former is used where the judge pro- 
nounces formal judgment according to 
the law and the evidence, the latter 
where he acts directly as arbiter. Cf. 
especially XI. 26 ff. — 11 fi. But if one 
denies making a seizure, the judge shall 
decide under oath, unless a witness tes- 
tifies. If one party contends that a man 
is a free man, the other that he is a slave, 
those who testify that he is a free man 
shall be preferred. If they contend about 
a slave, each declaring that he is his, if 
a witness testifies, (the judge) shall de- 
clare judgment according to the witness, 
but if they testify for both or for neither, 
the judge shall decide under oath- When 

the one in possession has been defeated, 
he shall release the free man within five 
days, and he shall surrender the slave. 
If he does not release (the free man) or 
surrender (the slave), (the judge) shall 
decree that (the plaintiff) have judgment 
(viKiv = Att. viKav) against him, in the 
case of the free man for fifty staters and 
a stater, for each day until he releases 
him, in the case of the slave ten staters 
and a drachma for each day until he 
surrenders him. But at the end of a year 
after the judge has pronounced judg- 
ment, one may exact three times tim 
amount (i. e. three times the original 
fines, instead of the accumulated fines 
for delay) or less, but not more. As tothe 
time the judge shall decide under oath. — 
The purpose of this last provision seems 
to be to prevent the accumulation of 
fines out of all proportion to the value 
of the slave. Some take rplrpa as a 
third (i.e. of the accumulated fines). 
The word occurs, in another Cretan 
inscription (SGDI.5000 I), where its 
meaning is equally disputed. — 25. tov

1.6 ff. Beloch's extreme skepticism toward the tradition, and particularly his 
denial of the Doric migration, has fortunately found few adherents among 

1 These are arranged to correspond with the sections of the Grammar. The 
references are mostly to discussions outside of the Greek Grammars and the 
grammars of special dialects, as listed above, systematic citation of which would 
seem superfluous. And even for this scattered literature completeness has not 
been sought, and perhaps no consistent principle of selection will be evident. 
But in the main preference is given to the more recent articles in which the 
material is quoted with some fullness and the dialectic scope of a given pecu- 
liarity defined. 

In the notes some details are added which were intentionally omitted from the 
text, but also some few important forms which were omitted through oversight 
or became accessible too late to be incorporated in the text ; these last including 
some forms from the new fragments of Corinna, Berliner Klassikertexte V.ii,32fE., 
which failed to i-each me until recently. 

The references, except those to the present work which are mostly by section 
numbers and in Clarendon type as usual, are by pages, or, for collections of 
inscriptions, by the numbers of the latter. In a case like Hoffmann's Griechische 
Dialekte, 1.185 would refer to no. 135, but 1,135 to p. 135. 


the historians and none among students of the dialects. See Buck, Am. J. 
Phil.XXI, 319. 

P. 2, note 2. The " much more problematical" view referred to is that 
of Kretsohmer in the article cited above. Skepticism is now expressed also 
by Sohnsen, Beitrage zu griech. Wortforschung 1,93, note 2. 

Pp. 6, 7. As a general term covering the Aeolic and the Arcado-Cyprian 
or Achaean group, and corresponding to the use by some scholars of either 
Aeolic or Achaean in a wider sense, " Central Greek " has been proposed by 
Thumb in the article cited above, but has not met with favor. We prefer 
to differentiate the Aeolic of the north and the Achaean of the south, while 
recognizing their striking affinities, and, when a term covering both is de- 
sired, to speak simply of Aeolic-Achaean. 

P. 6, note. The view referred to is that which is elaborated from the 
archaeological standpoint by Eidgeway, EarlyAge of Greece, and from the 
linguistic standpoint by Meister, Dorer und Achaer. Against this cf . Ed. 
Meyer 11,72 "Von archaeologischer Seite hat man mehi-fach eine 'vor- 
achaeische' Bevolkerung und Cultur des Peloponnes und eine achaeische 
Einwanderung Jahrhunderte vor der dorischen construiert. Das sind reine 
Luftgebilde, ilber die eine Discussion unmoglich ist, da ihnen jede histo- 
rische Grundlage fehlt"; and, on the linguistic side, Fick,Woch.f.Klass.

Pp. 8 f£. No mention is made of Macedonian, which, so far as we can 
judge from the scanty remains, is a form of Greek, but detached at such 
an early period that it is best not classed as one of the Greek dialects in 
the ordinary sense. Yet it shows some notable points of agreement with 
the neighboring Thessalian. Cf. Hoffmann, Die Makedonen.

10. The change of «V to iv has nothing to do with the position before 
vowel or consonant, as was once thought, but is probably due to the proclitic 
character of the word. Once established, iv passed over to the compounds 
regardless of their accent. With regard to aTrep^ojuivos etc., the e was unac- 
centedin the nom., and possibly in these ace. forms (our accentuation of 
them as -/AtVos is merely for convenience, see 103a). But other examples 
of I are lacking even for unaccented syllables (cf . e8(Kacra//.EV also in no. 16),

It is not accidental that Pamphylian, which agrees with Arcado-Cyprian 
in several important features (see p. 8, note), has not only l iroKu = iv tto- 
Xet, but also regularly is = £s, ek, and that is also occurs several times at 
Vaxos, but rarely elsewhere. Cf. Meister,Ber.Sachs.Ges.l904,23.

For Att. ^tXioi (cf. also 76, 117) the assumed *xuj-\u}i maybe dispensed 
with, if we adopt the view of Wackernagel, I.F.XXV, 329, that e in eXi 
gives Att. IXi by assimilation, for which he cites also Att. MiXixios for 
MeiXixios, MijXixios, /teXAixos of the other dialects. Wackernagel also dis- 
cusses the change of e to l in i/iariov, which is the regular spelling in Attic, 
while elsewhere we find the spelling to be expected (cf. eijua), namely e/ia- 
Tiov (our no. 8.2), el/iATioy, d/iarMr/iosi (cf. Ditt.SyU. 653 passim, 939).

dipththong ei, the forms teSe and uXe of the early Megarian inscription 
(Wilhelm,A.M.XXXI,89fe.; cf. Solmsen ibid. 342 fC.; Baunack, Philolo- 
gus LV,474:; Keil,G6tt.Nachr.l906,231fi.; Schwartz, ibid.240ff.), though 
taken as reiSe and oAAciby Keil, are best understood, with Solmsen, Bei- 
trage zur griech. Wortforschung 1,96, as TrjSe, which occurs IG. VII.52, and 
oXXiy. Cf. 132.6, where they are so cited. 

28 a. The lexicons give Iktio-is, doubtless because of rurts. But there is 
no evidence that the penult was short, and, while the word seems not to 
occur in the Attic inscriptions, the spelling Ikt£io-is is decidedly the more 
usual in the papyri (Mayser, Gram. d. Papyri, 91), thus agreeing with Ion. 
fKTaa-K (SGDI.5532.17) and Arc. e<rTet(r« (no.18.32). The introduction 
of the strong grade of the root is due to the influence of the verbal forms.

in just what dialects, besides Attic, West Ionic, Arcadian, Elean, and 
Theran, pp is to be recognized as normal, cannot be determined with any 
certainty from the existing evidence. In some dialects where we find a few 
examples both of pp and of per, or even of pa- only, the latter may be so 
late as to be easily attributable to koivi; influence. But it is also possible 
that in some dialects pp was only an occasional colloquialism and that ptr 
was preserved, even without external influence, in careful speech. Cf. 86, 
p. 68. The isolated Kapputv (also in Tim. Locr. and Plut. Instit. Lac.) is 
especially significant. But we do not ffeel warranted as yet in assuming 
that pp was common to the West Greek dialects in general.

Boeot. Meyva etc. (full material in Sad(5e,DeBoeot. tit.dial.,50fl.) are 
generally taken as T-stem forms, either vocatives or nominatives without s. 
Cf. Kretschmer.K.Z. XXXVI, 26Sff.; Meister,Ber.Sachs.Ges.l904,32. But 
as forms in -r/ are not found in the dialects which keep the T-inflection, 
^Yhile vocatives in -r; from cr-stems are known and Boeotian shows the ct- 
inflection in other case-forms, we prefer to- assume that these forms too 
belong to the adopted cr-stem type. Still different views, but too general 
and vague to carry conviction, are expressed by Sad^e I.e., and Solmsen, 

H1.4. -ijs is probably not from -lyvs, like jSois beside /SoSs from *;8a)vs 
(37.1), but owes its -q to the analogy of -t^os etc. Dat. pi. MavTii/ecri in an 
Elean decree (SGDI.1151.17) shows a similar extension of r] at the expense 
of ev, and is perhaps the Arcadian, rather than a true Elean, form.

oned here by Solmsen, I prefer to regard as an optative (177). 


151.2. There is no certainty that Thess. SwdsTai (no. 27) and Arc. ku- 
KpiBii (no. 16.15) are to be so understood, rather than as Svi/aeTat, KaKpiOil, 
though we regard the former as more probable. The Arcadian form is 
also taken by some as Kaxpidi e, and the contracted ia-Sod^ occurs in the 
later no. 18.52. 

152.4. A still different type, with the optative sign added directly to <t, 
is seen in Cret. pipK<nev SGDI.49S2, and also in hrnXwriav ibid. 5004, if the 
latter is really an optative.

159. In Delphian there are several other examples of -laa (seeWendel's 
Index 190 ff.) but none certain of -i^w. For cruXiJovres, which occurs twice 
among over two hundred instances of eruXcovTcs, is perhaps only a graphic 
variant. Cf. J. Schmidt, Pluralbildungd.idg.Neutra, 329. For Boeotian add 
<m<j>av<i)iij.iv from Thespiae, B.C.H.XXV, 361. trre<^ai/St occurs also at 
Eleusis, but here only as the result of the confusion between oi and wt 
(Meisterhans 66). It is not clear whether the late Lesb. Tipai, a-T€<j>dvoi, are 
from -da, -taa or from -aa, -oa (in either case we should expect a-T€<jiavS)i) , 
or are simply the Attic forms and to be accented rt/xai, (TTeKJmvot.

1 The portion of this article which deals with Greece, and also the statements 
in the text, are condensed from a more comprehensive but unpublished study of 
this subject. ^ 


In the alphabetical arrangement the presence of p is ignored, in order to 
obviate the separation of the many forms which occur with and without it. Thus 
(f)CKaTi, i.e. plKaTL or [Kan, stands in the position of tKari, and vo(f)6s in the 
position of vads. f stands in the position of k. 

For inflectional forms the conventional captions (nom. sg., 1 sg. pres. indie.) 
are sometimes substituted, and in these the transcription which we have em- 
ployed for forms occurring in the epichoric alphabets is frequently replaced by 
the more familiar spelling, e.g. e, o. A, by ij, w, ', or Cret. tt, k, by 0, x- But the 
precise form occurring is sometimes retained as a caption, or added, or given 
separately witli a cross-reference. Brevity and convenience in each case have 
been preferred to consistency. 

The references are : numbers in Clarendon type, to the sections of the Gram- 
mar, or, where App. is added, to the corresponding sections of the Appendix; 
otherwise, to the numbers of the inscriptions. The Heraclean Tables (no. 74) 
and the Cretan Law-Code (no. 110) are cited by name.

The charts are intended to exhibit, in a form which may be 
easily Surveyed, the distribution of some of the more important 
peculiarities common to several dialects. Chart I (repeated with 
slight corrections from the author's article in Glass. Phil. II, 241 £f.) 
represents a selection of phenomena which are especially signifi- 
cant for the interrelations of the dialects, and Chart I a is a con- 
densation of the same. 

The presence of a given peculiarity is indicated by a cross oppo- 
site' the name of the dialect and beneath a caption which, like 'those 
used in the Summaries, is sufficient to identify the phenomenon, 
though not always to define it, and should always be interpreted 
ia the light of the section of the Gramjnar to which reference is 
made. The cross is sometimes surrounded by a circle as an inti- 
mation of some reservation, the nature of which will be understood 
from the section referred to. 

The coloring of the dialect map represents the grouping of the 
dialects as described above, pp. 1 ff . The mixture iu Thessaly and 
Boeotia is indicated, also the Aeolic streak in the Ionic of Chios. 
But the various Aeolic and Achaean survivals scattered through 
West Greek territory are ignored. Along the western coast of 
Northern Greece the extent of Corinthian influence (see p. 10, 
note) is so imperfectly known that the coloring of Acarnania and 
the adjacent region is to be taken merely as a crude suggestion of 
the speech conditions, and Epirus, from which we have only a few 
late inscriptions, has been left uncolored.
