§ 153. Mixed Aorist. Some sigmatic aorists have the thematic vowel (instead of “-α-”) before the personal endings; so they have sigma in common with first aorists, and -ο- or -ε- in common with second aorists. E. g. A 428, “ἀπ-εβήσετο” (“βαίνω”). A 496, “ἀν-εδυ?σετο” (“δύω”). 3.103, “οἴσετε”, and 3.120, “οἰσέμεναι”, imperative and infinitive, respectively, from “οἰ-” (present “φέρω”). 3.105, “ἄξετε”, and 24.663, “ἀξέμεν”, imperative and infinitive, respectively, of “ἄγω”. I 617, “λέξεο”, imperative of root “λεχ”, ‘lie.’ 3.250, “ὄρσεο”, imperative of “ὄρνυ_μι”.
