γεγώνω, delib. perf. subjunct. from γέγωνα: whence, too, the imper. γέγωνε, Ph. 238. Both these could, indeed, be referred to a pres. γεγώνω, which is implied by other forms, as ἐγέγωνε (Il. 14.469): cp. Monro Hom. Gr. § 27. Poetry recognised, in fact, three forms,—a perf. γέγωνα, a pres. γεγώνω, and a pres. γεγωνέω (γεγωνεῖν, Il. 12.337). Cp. ἄνωγα with impf. ἤνωγον.

τίνος εἶ σπέρματος; possessive gen., denoting the stock, country, etc., to which one belongs: cp. on 144: Plat. Symp. 203Aπατρὸς τίνος ἐστὶ καὶ μητρός;Meno 94 Dοἰκίας μεγάλης ἦν”: Dem. or. 57 § 57ὅσοι τῶν μεγάλων δήμων ἐστέ.

πατρόθεν with εἶ: the Chorus, whose uneasy curiosity is now thoroughly roused, presses for an explicit answer, and first (as usual) for the father's name. Plat. Legg. 753Cεἰς πινάκιον γράψαντα τοὔνομα πατρόθεν καὶ φυλῆς καὶ δήμου”. Ai. 547ἐμὸς τὰ πατρόθεν”.
