Usage notesEdit

  • Only the genitive, accusative and ablative forms of the singular are in ordinary use as a common noun, also confirmed by the grammarians' statements.
  • The nominative singular ops is not in use other than as the name of the goddess; the dative opī is attested only once.
  • The ablative singular is usually ope, but once opī in Varro (in giving an etymology) and opīd in an inscription, doubly unusual for having an i-stem ending augmented with the o-stem ablative /d/.

DeclensionEdit

Third-declension noun.

Case Singular Plural
Nominative ops opēs
Genitive opis opum
Dative opī opibus
Accusative opem opēs
Ablative ope opibus
