[*] 122. The perfect infinitive in indirect discourse generally represents a perfect indicative of the direct form. E.g.
- Φησὶ τοῦτο πεπραχέναι, he says that he has done this;
- ἔφη τοῦτο πεπραχέναι, he said that he had done this;
- φήσει τοῦτο πεπραχέναι, he will say that he has done this (the direct form in each case being πέπραχα).
- “Ἔφη χρήμαθ᾽ ἑαυτῷ τοὺς Θηβαίους ἐπικεκηρυχέναι,” “he said that the Thebans had offered a reward for his seizure.” DEM. xix. 21.
