Verse 24:

[face=SPIonic]au)toi ei)/dosan ta\ e)/rga kuri/ou kai\ ta\ qauma/sia au)tou= e)n tw|= buqw=| [/face]


What is [face=SPIonic]ei)/dosan [/face] ? I assume it's from [face=SPIonic] o(ra/w[/face] , but I can't parse it -- and nor can Perseus!

Logos says it is Aorist Active Indicative 3rd Person Plural.

Shouldn't that be [face=SPIonic]ei)/don [/face] ?

perhaps both forms were used at different times... eidosan does have a more regular form for an aorist anyway. :)

In Koine Greek, the ending [face=SPIonic]-san[/face] was widely used. So could the 3rd person plural aorist II (or even imperfect) indicative active be distinguished from the 1st person singular : Chantraine, Morphologie historique du grec, mentions [face=SPIonic]u(pelamba/nosan, a)ph/lqosan, ei)/xosan, e)dokou=san[/face] instead of [face=SPIonic]u(pela/mbanon, a)ph=lqon, ei)=xon, e)do/koun[/face].

Good, I'm all in favour of disambiguation.
