Accent.—Final -ως of the genitive singular does not prevent the acute from standing on the antepenult ( cross163 a). Thus πόλε-ως, πήχε-ως, ἄστε-ως. πόλε-ως retains the accent of the earlier πόλη-ος, which, by transference of quantity ( cross34), became πόλε-ως. The accent of the gen. pl. follows that of the gen. sing.
