[Meaning it] happened, occurred. Polybius [writes]: "a certain impulse fell on Scipio and[1] a perplexity, whether he should engage and fight in single combat with the barbarian [sc. chief]."[2]

*)ene/pese: sune/bh, e)ge/neto. *polu/bios: e)ne/pese de/ tis o(rmh\ tw=| *skipi/wni kai\ diapo/rhsis, ei) dei= sumbalei=n kai\ monomaxh=sai pro\s to\n ba/rbaron.
The headword is aorist indicative active of the compound verb e)mpi/ptw (cf. epsilon 1011), third person singular. It is probably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotation which follows.
[1] i.e. but (the 'impulse' being to fight).
[2] Polybius 35.5.1 (preserved only here), on P.Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus at Intercatia (Spain: Strabo 3.4.13, etc.) in 151 BCE; cf. Livy epitome 48 and other references to this famous incident in Walbank's commentary (III 648).
