[1] The headword is a future participle (from a)pei=pon), in the masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative plural, expressing purpose. It might be drawn from the first quotation given (where it is neuter plural), but it occurs also in Thucydides 1.29.3 (where it is masculine accusative singular:web address 1), and the scholia there show resemblances with the glosses here.
[2] An approximation of Procopius, Secret History 21.26.
