With verbs of saying and thinking the predicate adjective is usually connected with its noun by εἶναι, with verbs of perceiving, showing, by ὤν ( cross2106): οὐδένα γὰρ οἶμαι δαιμόνων εἶναι κακόν for I think no one of the gods is base E. I. T. 391, δηλοῖ ψευδῆ τὴν διαθήκην οὖσαν it shows that the will is false D. 45.34. But εἶναι is sometimes omitted ( cross945), as τὰ_ς γὰρ καλὰ_ς πρά_ξεις ἁπά_σα_ς ἀγαθὰ_ς ὡμολογήσαμεν for we have agreed that all honourable actions are good P. Pr. 359e. On the omission of ὤν, see cross2117. For εἶναι with verbs of naming and calling, see cross1615.
