80. The future perfect can be expressed by the perfect participle and ἔσομαι. In the active voice this is the only form in use, except in a few cases (chiefly ἑστήξω and τεθνήξω). E.g. “Ἂν ταῦτ᾽ εἰδῶμεν, καὶ τὰ δέοντα ἐσόμεθα ἐγνωκότες καὶ λόγων ματαίων ἀπηλλαγμένοι,” “we shall have already resolved to do our duty and shall have been freed from vain reports.” DEM. iv. 50. (See 45 and 831.)
