Headword: *)epi/dosin
Adler number: epsilon,2307
Translated headword: contribution
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] an increase in virtue, an advance, an addition.[1]
"Unhindered in practicing philosophy, he continued to make a contribution and increased simply by the cubit, so to speak."[2]
The Attic-speakers say e)pi/dosis, but prokoph/ [is found] in none of the [sc. correct] Greek [writers].[3]
Greek Original:

[1] Similarly in other lexica. The headword noun (epsilon 2308) is in the accusative case and must be quoted from somewhere. Asmus included the phrase e)pi/dosin e)pi\ a)reth=s as fr. 51 of Damascius, Life of Isidore; Adler disagrees; and not in Zintzen.
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 286 Zintzen (166 Asmus); cf. kappa 710.
[3] cf. Phrynichus, Ecloga fr. 85 Lobeck; Thomas Magister 290.2 Ritschl. It is not clear (from LSJ s.v.) what sense or senses of the noun this opinion refers to.
