Dative Plural.—The ending -αισι (ν) occurs in Attic poetry (δίκαισι from δίκη right, δεσπόταισι from δεσπότης lord).

a. Attic inscriptions to 420 B. C. have -ῃσι (written -ηισι), -ησι, and (after ε, ι, ρ) -ᾳσι (written -αισι) and -α_σι. Thus, δραχμῇσι and δραχμῆσι drachmas, ταμίᾳσι and ταμία_σι stewards. -ησι and -α_σι are properly endings of the locative case ( cross341).
