Of the stem “πολυ-” (“πολϝ-”) the declension is as follows (cf. § 105):

Case Masculine Neuter
Singular: Nom. πολύς πολύ
Gen. πολέος πολέος
Dat. -- --
Acc. πολύν πολύ
Plural: Nom. πολέες, πολεῖς --
Gen. πολέων --
Dat. πολέεσσι”(“ν”), “πολέσι”(“ν”) πολέεσσι”(“ν”)
Acc. πολέας --

1. A dative plural “πολέσσι”(“ν”) of unusual formation (§ 84) occurs rarely.

2. In some instances the MSS. have “πουλύς” (= “πολλός”), “πουλύν” (= “πολλόν” and even “πολλήν”), “πουλύ” (= “πολλόν”, neuter).
