ς (or long vowel before final letter.) (naked stem.) Nominative. ες α
ος Genitive. ων
ι Dative. σι(ν)
ν or α (naked stem.) Accusative. ας α
(like Nom. or Neut.) (naked stem.) Vocative. ες α

§ 33.
The Nom. sing. is so often changed by the euphonic rules that the stem of the noun is best seen in the Gen. Nouns in ις, υς, and ευς take the (Attic) Gen. εως, (ω regarded as short.) The α of the Acc. sing. is usually after a consonant. Many irregularities and some anomalies occur, which may generally be learned from the lexicon.
