Description[edit]

Greek nouns of the Attic declension are masculines and feminines ending in -ως (-ōs) and neutrals in -ων (-ōn). This category is usually considered as a subcategory of the second Ancient Greek declension, because in both declensions masculines and feminines share the same endings.
