<fost> is the past participle, newly created on the perfect
stem fu- and
following the model of ponere / pos(i)tu. Latin didn't have a
past passive
participle of the verb <esse> (only a future ptc. <futu:rus>),
and the Romance

sido < seditu "sat",
Fra/Occ/Cat/Ita été, estat, stato < sta:tu "stood", Romanian
fost, Aromanian
