    Can I except Subject and (is, was, were) in after "though"

    I think there are some omitted words in this sentence. And I've never seen this sentence before.

    "Though exhausted, I continued working."
    Is right to understand the sentence above as "Though I was exhausted, I continued working"?
    If so, are there any other sentence structures "Subject+(is, are, was, were)" is leaved out?

    Your understanding is correct. This structure is not uncommon.
