CONSONANT DECLENSION: Adjectives

145. Some nouns of classes already described were originally adjectives and continued to be used as such, masculine and feminine alike (neuter, too, when there is one) of one ending:

φυγάςφυγάδ-οςexiled(like ἐλπίς, 114)
γυμνήςγυμνῆτ-οςlight-armed
πένηςπένητ-ος poor

With these belong some other adjectives, as

μάκαρμάκαρ-οςblessed(cp. 102)
ἅρπαξἅρπαγ-οςunknown(cp. 109)
ἀγνώςἀγνῶτ-ος poor (cp. 112)
