Introduction to Ancient Greek Present Active Indicative Verbs
Ancient Greek first aorist tense, active voice, indicative mood verbs describe (or indicate!) actions that were performed in the past by the subject of the sentence. The action that occurred must have been a discrete event and not an ongoing process.
(The first aorist tense is sometimes also referred to as the weak aorist.)
Typically, 1st aorist active indicative verbs in Ancient Greek are composed of a verb stem beginning with an ε- augment and ending with the following: -σα, -σας, -σε(ν), -σαμεν, -σατε or -σαν. Of course, the augments and verb-endings will be modified according to the Ancient Greek contraction rules; click the yellow grammar review table button for further details.
