One object in genitive – one in accusative
There is a class of verbs, which need two complements (direct and indirect object) to express the action. These verbs take the direct object in the accusative while the indirect object is expressed either with a prepositional phrase or in the genitive.
Έδωσα το βιβλίο στη Μαρία .Έδωσα της Μαρίας το βιβλίο
δίνω χαρίζω δωρίζω στέλνω χρωστώ
ρίχνω λέω εξηγώ ομολογώ ανακοινώνω
