The reduction of α ̄υ to α ̄, which can be freely illustrated from the less educated papyri after i/B.C. (cf. Mayser Gr. p. 114 f.), is seen in the form κλαθμός, read six times in the Washington Manuscript according to Sanders (p. 21 n. : see Moulton Gr. ii. p. 87). The MGr κλάματα (pl.) shows the same phonetic change from the classical form κλαύματα. MGr also κλάψα (cf. the MGr aor. ἔκλαψα).
