[1] The headword is present participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb e)pikale/w (cf. epsilon 2349, epsilon 2351). It is probably extracted from the first quotation given here, though there are extant alternatives from Lysias and Demosthenes onwards. For the second glossing participle, e)gkalw=n, cf. scholia on Lucian 2.9 and 111.27 Rabe.
[2] Richard Porson (1759-1808) related this quotation -- correctly, in Adler's opinion -- to John of Antioch fr.90 FHG (4.575a) now 172 Roberto.
