  For me it looks like a cheatsheet that some person used to learn the conjugation of ancient greek verbs. The verb λυω is used in many textbooks for grammar examples for two reasons:

1. it is very short, the stem consists only of two letters - λυ, so examples are as much compact as possible. As the number of verb forms in ancient greek is enormous (I just counted 288, but I think I missed something and there are more), compactness is rather important.

2. It is very regular, there are no exceptions for any of its forms, all conjugation rules are very straightforward to apply.

Hope that helps.
