A neuter plural subject is regarded as a collective ( cross996), and has its verb in the singular: καλὰ ἦν τὰ σφάγια the sacrifices were propitious X. A. 4.3.19.

N.—The neuter plural seems to have been originally in part identical in form with the feminine singular in α_, and to have had a collective meaning.
