Vetting Status: high
[*ya/lths] and yalth/s:[1] [Nouns] ending in -ths, having the penultimate [syllable] ending with an uninflected [form], not admitting -s in the genitive, have grave accent [on the last syllable], unless they are participles. Such [are] u(fa/nths ["weaver"], a)gu/rths ["collector"], *eu)fra/ths ["Euphrates"]. But e(konth/s ["volunteer"] and e)qelonth/s ["volunteer"] [are] participles.[2] Among Attic speakers [the following nouns] have acute accent on the last syllable: kaqarth/s ["cleanser"], a)munth/s ["defender"] (referring to a helper), faidrunth/s ["washer"], poikilth/s ["embroiderer"], yalth/s ["harper"], prau+nth/s ["appeaser"].

cf. generally psi 13, psi 15, psi 17.
[1] The issue is how this noun should be accented. Cf. Philoponus on words that have different accent according to their meaning; Etymologicum Magnum 435.49 and 435.57.
[2] We would not call these nouns participles, but they are related to e(kw/n and e)qe/lwn, of which the former looks like a participle and the latter definitely is one.
