Two verbs in -οω, ἱδρόω sweat, ῥι_γόω shiver, may have ω and instead of ον and οι. See cross641.

Thus, indic. ῥι_γῶ, ῥι_γῷς, ῥι_γῷ (or ῥι_γοῖ), opt. ῥι_γῴην, inf. ῥι_γῶν (or ῥι_γοῦν), part. ῥι_γῶν. So ἱδρῶσι, opt. ἱδρώῃ (or ἱδροι_), part. ἱδρῶν (or ἱδροῦν).

a. λούω wash, when it drops its υ ( cross43), contracts like δηλόω. Thus, λούω, λούεις, λούει, but λοῦμεν (for λο (w) ο-μεν), λοῦτε, λοῦσι; and so in other forms, as ἔλου, λοῦται, λοῦσθαι, λούμενος.

b. οἵομαι think (imperfect ᾠόμην) has the parallel forms οἶμαι (ᾤμην).
