[face=SPIonic]doqei/h h( kou/rh patri\ fi/lw|[/face] I don't understand the first word in this line. It appears that it might be the 2nd person sg. aorist passive of [face=SPIonic]di/dwmi[/face]. I would have expected [face=SPIonic]e)do/qh[/face]. The lack of augment doesn't bother me, but what about the extra Epsilon and Iota.
Maybe it is a different verb or form altogether.
It might help if I could find the paradigms of the passive voice of -[face=SPIonic]mi[/face] verbs in the text book.
