The ( fairly rudimentary ) vocab. in the JACT "Reading Greek" gives:

PUR, TO fire
PURA, TA fire signal
PURA hH funeral pyre

If you go back to Perseus and consult Smyth under the rubric of irregular
( s. 254 and 285.25 ) you will find it listed as PUR, PUROS, PURI etc. (
2nd. decl )
OTOH, the JACT book classifies it as 3b, i.e the endings of PRAGMA -- the
results are the same, of course: PUR, PUROS, PURI etc.
