The vowel thus lengthened is often written long in the text. E. g.

A 2, “οὐλομένην” (Attic “ὀλομένην”). A 155, “βωτιανείρῃ” (“βόσκω”, ‘feed,’ and “ἀνήρ”). A 252, “ἠγαθέῃ” (“α?̓γα-”, ‘very’). B 77, “ἠμαθόεντος” (“α?̓́μαθος”, ‘sand’). B 89, “εἰαρινοῖσιν” (“ἔαρ”, ‘spring’). B 448, “ἠερέθονται” (“α?̓είρω”, ‘raise’). B 460, “δουλιχοδείρων” (“δολιχός”, ‘long’).

Compare “εἰν ἀγορῇ” (I 13) for “ἐν ἀγορῇ”.
