The primary headword -- the aorist active participle, genitive feminine singular, of diapi/ptw -- is extracted from the genitive absolute construction in the quotation given: Polybius fr. 125 Büttner-Wobst. For the verb see also delta 935, delta 692. For the glosses see alpha 3591. Büttner-Wobst reports that Schweighäuser proposed an emendation to this passage, reading e)pibolh=s ("attempt, assault") instead of e)piboulh=s ("plan, plot").
[1] Extracted from somewhere else, evidently.
