When -ες- of the stem is preceded by ε, the forms are inflected as follows: τὸ δέος fear (δεες-), Περικλῆς from Περικλέης Pericles (Περικλεες-):

Nom.δέος (Περικλέης) Περικλῆς
Gen. (δέε-ος) δέους (Περικλέε-ος) Περικλέους
Dat. (δέε-ι) δέει (Περικλέε-ι) Περικλεῖ
Acc.δέος (Περικλέε-α) Περικλέα_
Voc.δέος (Περίκλεες) Περίκλεις
So Ἡρακλῆς Heracles, Σοφοκλῆς Sophocles.

a. After ε, εα contracts to α_ ( cross56). On the contraction of -εεος, see cross55.

b. δέος is uncontracted because the form was originally δεyος ( cross58).
