[μεμετρέαται means the same as Attic] μεμέτρηνται .
Greek Original:
Μεμετρέαται: μεμέτρηνται.
The Ionic form given as the headword occurs in Herodotus 4.86.4, where Hdt. explains how he worked out the size of various seas that he has just given, and already in his source for this: Hecataeus of Miletus [epsilon 360] FGrH 1 F196. It is commented on by several grammarians, from Herodian onwards, as an example of the Ionic perfect passive plural.
