<div>In fact, there were others in older, particularly Homeric Greek.
Here's the Perseus Smyth ad rem:</div>
<div><font color="#007700">448. Reduplication in the Second
Aorist.--ag┘ lead forms the second aorist ═g-agon, ag-ag┘,
ag-agoimi, ag-agein, middle ═g-agom═n. So also ═n-enka and
═n-enkon from pher┘.<br>
448 D. Hom. has many reduplicated second aorists, as pe-pithon from
peith┘ (pith-) persuade, keklom═n, ke-klomenos from kelomai
command, le-lathesthai from lanthan┘ (lath-) escape the notice of,
pe-phidesthai from pheidomai (phid-) spare, ═r-aron from ararisk┘
(ar-) join, ┘r-oron from ornu_mi arouse. The indicative forms may
take the syllabic augment, as in e-pe-phradon from phraz┘ (phrad-)
tell. From enipt┘ chide and eru_k┘ check come ═ni_papon and
eneni_pon, and ═ru_kakon.</font><br>
