Barytones in -ι^ς and -υ^ς, with stems ending in τ, δ, or θ, properly conform to this rule § 79); but sometimes they have accusatives singular in “-ιν” and “-υν”, agreeing with the familiar exception of Attic Greek (GG. 115). E. g. “ἔρις” (“ἐριδ-”) has “ἔριδα” (3.7) and “ἔριν” (Od. 3.136). “κόρυς” has “κόρυθα” (18.611) and “κόρυν” (16.215). “χάρις” has “χάριν” only.
