Several verbs with stems ending in a short vowel retain that vowel in the perfect (and in other tenses); such stems originally ended in ς; as τελέ-ω finish, from τέλος end (τελες-). This ς appears in the perfect middle stem (τετέλε-ς-μαι, τετέλε-ς-ται). In the second person singular and plural but one ς is found: τετέλε-σαι, τετέλε-σθε. By analogy some other verbs have a ς at the end of the verbal stem.
