The headword itself, evidently extracted from that phrase, is aorist passive participle, masculine accusative singular, of LSJ's e)pine/w (A), a verb especially associated with the idea of the Fates determining the span of someone's life.
[2] Part of Aelian fr. 11 Domingo-Forasté (11 Hercher); "he" being Philemon, and "they" the nine Muses: phi 328; cf. also epsilon 2485, epsilon 2492.
