Declension
Notes

This noun can be inflected using two different stems (Greek and Latin). They are inconsistently used even within the same author's works; Cicero and Pliny the Elder use both the Latin declension:

and the Greek:

while Ovid, most notably, uses exclusively the Greek declension:

The accusative plural form ībidas is encountered as well:

Some forms, such as the nominative and genitive plural, are only attested in the Latin declension, while others, such as the genitive and ablative singular, in the Greek. The dative, ablative plural and vocative are unattested.
