[ἴσμεν means the same as] οἴδαμεν .
Greek Original:
Ἴσμεν: οἴδαμεν.
Same entry in other lexica, and see also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 2.301 (where ἴδμεν [sic] is glossed by the present headword plus gloss).
The older forms of οἶδα have the zero-grade of the root in the plural. In the first person plural, ἴδμεν (iota 123) was replaced with ἴσμεν by analogy with ἴστε , and by οἴδαμεν (the word used to define the term here) by analogy with οἶδα in Ionic and later koine. Smyth, Sections 794-799 (web address 1).
