Comment: The Mycenaean form is still an m-stem < PIE *sem-ei̯. (In later Greek the stem has been generalised as a n-stem in analogy with the general sound change of *m > n in word final position.) The Mycenaean form also attests the original consonant-stem D.sg. ending *-ei̯. (In first-millennium Ancient Greek the consonant-stem D.sg. morpheme has syncretised with the L.sg. morpheme *-i in all dialects). Cf. Ancient Greek D.sg.m. ἑνί.
