The grammar books say that "histe^mi" does not have a second aorist middle form. Yet Perseus identifies one meaning of both "stasthai" and "epistasthai" as aorist infinitive middle of "ephiste^mi". Is this a logistics glitch, or a true fact? Thanks in advance for any help.
It could be present infinitive middle of [face=SPIonic]e)pi/stamai[/face]
Can you provide context, i.e., sentence it occurs in?
