Does Accordance indicate whether any Greek verbs are deponent and in which tenses? I was hoping this might be included in the instant details box but have not found this.

There is no specific tag for deponency. Actually the experts do not always agree which verbs are deponent, but our tagging follows BDAG and Liddell & Scott.

The only way to see deponency in the texts is to observe the lemma. If the LEMMA is a middle form, such as ercomai then any middle form is deponent. If the lemma is an active form, then any middle form is a true middle.
