      As <despoina> 'lady of the house' is the feminine counterpart of
      <despote:s>, it can hardly be anything else but *dems-potnih2 > *despotnja
      with the simplification of *-tnj- to -nj- prior to the regular C+glide
      metathesis (*-onja > -oina). Elements of compounds are typically prone to
      segmental reduction.

        My dictionary lists despote:s, -ou as having an acc.
        despotea. Is that just an Ionicism (Herodotus) or is there
        something special about this word?
