Greek Original:
*)epelpi/zwn: ai)tiatikh=|. ei)s e)lpi/das a)/gwn. ta\ me\n au)tou\s e)pelpi/zwn u(posxe/sesi, ta\ de\ u(pospei/rwn au)toi=s o)li/ga ke/rdh, tou\s de\ e)n a)ciw/sei te kai\ duna/mei perisulw=n kai\ dhmeu/wn.
The headword is present participle, masculine nominative singular, of the compound verb e)pelpi/zw. It is presumably extracted from the quotation given. (The instance in Thucydides 8.54.1 is intransitive, and might anyway be simple e)lpi/zwn.)
[1] Aelian fr. 51a Domingo-Forasté (48 Hercher), quoted more extensively (and with some slight differences) at pi 3122, where Baton (fr. 2 Müller) is named as a source for at least part of the information. The subject is Pythagoras, the tyrant of Ephesos.
