The headword is the aorist middle infinitive of the verb e)pishmai/nw; see generally LSJ s.v. (also epsilon 2561, epsilon 2562). It is presumably quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Polybius (9.8.1, 10.41.6, 28.12.9), given his prominence in the rest of the entry.
[1] The gloss is the aorist active infinitive of the verb bebaio/w; likewise in Photius and elsewhere.
[2] A summary/paraphrase of Polybius 15.24.3; cf. alpha 4656 (end).
[3] Polybius 9.9.5 (web address 1); cf. epsilon 2081.
[4] Polybius fr. 148 Büttner-Wobst. Büttner-Wobst notes (533) that Ursinus (Fulvio Orsini, 1529-1600) attributed this fragment to Polybius.
