Iota subscript – GCSE Classical Greek

When iota comes after long alpha, eta or omega, it is written in miniature form underneath: ᾳ ῃ ῳ

It is not certain how far it was pronounced in classical times, but it is convenient to sound slightly to differentiate

from ordinary long alpha on the one hand, and from the diphthong αι  on the other.

τῷ Θεῷ, ἐν τιμῇ, τῇ ἀληθείᾳ, μέσῳ, ἐν κρυπτῷ, ἐν πάσῃ περιπτώσει, ἐν μιᾷ νυκτί
