Stems in ες (nom. -ης or -ος) usually drop ες and add ο; as ψευδ-ο μαρτυρία_ false testimony (ψευδ-ής); and so stems in ας, as κρεο-φάγο-ς flesh-eating (κρέας, φαγεῖν 529. 5). Some stems in ες and ας retain ες and ας (in poetry), as σακες-πάλο-ς wielding a shield (σάκος, πάλλω), σελας-φόρο-ς light-bringing (σέλας, φέρω); some add ι (for sake of the metre), as ὀρες-ί-τροφος mountain-bred (ὄρος, τρέφω); these may belong to 879.
