Vocatio ~ Vacatio

On pg. 141 I catalogued the change of pretonic a to o after w with the lone example vacīvos > vocīvos, but I should also have mentioned vacātiō > vocātiō 'exemption from duty', a form which is attested a number of times in inscriptions from the Republic (CIL I2.583 pa. 77, I2.593 pa. 93, CIL 5.4148, Brixia).
