This form of the headword verb e)pimu/zw is otherwise unattested in previous literature, but Hesychius epsilon4401 has a similar entry for the plural form (e)pe/mucan, 'they snorted at'); that probably derives ultimately from scholia to Homer, Iliad, where it appears twice in a formulaic line (4.20, 8.457).
