Subjunctive formed with Short Thematic Vowel

Tenses which in the indicative lack the thematic vowel § 130) use in the subjunctive ε or ο, not “η” or “ω”. This applies to the active endings -ετον, -ομεν, -ετε; and to the middle (or passive) endings -ομαι, -εαι, -εται, -όμεθα, -όμεσθα. E. g. B 440, “ι?ομεν” (Attic “ἴωμεν”), of which the present indicative is “ἴμεν”. A 363, “εἴδομεν” (Attic “εἰδῶμεν”), of which the second perfect indicative is “ἴδμεν”.
