Optative.—To the tense-stem ending in the thematic vowel (always ο) are added the mood-sign -ι_- (-ιε-) or -ιη- ( cross459, cross460) and the secondary personal endings (except -μι for , where the mood sign is -ι_-, cross459). In the 3 pl. we have -ιε-ν.

a. The final vowel of the tense-stem (ο) contracts with the mood suffix (ι_), ο-ι_ becoming οι. Thus λύ_οιμι (λύ_ο-ι_-μι), λύ_οις (λύ_ο-ι_-ς), λύ_οιεν (λύ_ο-ιε-ν), λυ_οίμην (λυ_ο-ί_-μην), λύ_οιο (λύ_ο-ι_-σο).
