The headword is an adjective (nominative masculine singular) formed from the verb e)pitri/bw -- which appears in the gloss; and see also epsilon 2727, epsilon 2728. The gloss comes from the appearance of this word, generating a scholion, in Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 275; cf. eta 437. See also the scholia to Plutus 619 (where it reappears); and cf. e)pitribei/hs in Thesmophoriazusae 557 and Birds 1530.
See also the scholia to Lucian, Jupiter Tragoedus 16.13, where the present gloss is itself glossed: toute/sti plhgh=nai ("that is, to be struck").
Keywords: comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; religion
