DOQEIH in Pharr section 216 line 6

[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.

It is optative : "may the girl be given back"

It might help if I could find the paradigms of the passive voice of -[face=SPIonic]mi[/face] verbs in the text book.

There is no need for a specific paradigm. [face=SPIonic]e)do/qhn[/face] conjugates exactly like [face=SPIonic]e)lu/qhn[/face]. Just replace -lu- by -do-.

Hi,

And because it's optative there is no augment.

Cordially,

Paul
