The headword is imperfect indicative active, third person singular, of the compound verb e)pikwma/zw (cf. epsilon 2408) Perhaps extracted from the quotation given (in which case it seems to bear the inceptive sense translated here), though it lacks the nu-moveable there, and there are known alternatives in John Chrysostom and Procopius.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler identifiable via TLG searching as Isidore of Pelusium, Epistles 1237.2. It uses the corresponding aorist of the headword verb.
