Yes, there are, and if I remeber my ancient Greek the male article would
be ... an o (omicron) with a hard aorist (breathing) above it, read "ho".
Is there any sign of a small accent, in the shape of a c, above the o?
It may have disappeared of course, if it was ever there.

I would check this myself, but I'm away from my VMS materials for a week
on a slow connection.
