Pharr section 165 line 6

I don't know why I keep having questions doing a review, I should have it all figured out by now...(just kidding.)
I can't figure out the form of [face=SPIonic]e)da/mhsan[/face][face=Arial][/face] If it is a aorist it would have been [face=SPIonic]e)da/masan[/face] would it not? So what is it?
Thanks
Bert

Hi Bert,

It looks like an aorist in the passive voice. "The Achaeans were crushed ..."

Cordially,

Paul

Yes, it is. We find Indicative [face=SPIonic]e)da/mhn, e)da/mh [/face], Infinitive [face=SPIonic]damh=nai...[/face]

Thanks. I thought I had eliminated that possibility because aorist passive is listed as [face=SPIonic]e)dama/sqhn[/face] so that would make the 3rd person pl [face=Arial][/face][face=SPIonic]e)damasqhsan[/face].
Is [face=Arial][/face][face=SPIonic]e)da/mhsan[/face] just an alternate form?
Maybe I'll have to break down and get a Homeric vocabulary quide.

Yep. One I personally have been unable to find in Pharr, which is annoying.

Cunliffe devotes a bit more than a full column to [face=spionic]dama/zw[/face], about half of which is a listing of various forms.
