[1] The headword is third person singular, imperfect, of e)pispe/rxw (cf. epsilon 2597). It might be extracted from the quotation given here, though as the headword it lacks the nu-moveable, and there is an instance of that (which attracted scholiastic comment) in Thucydides 4.12.1, on Brasidas (beta 519) at Pylos (web address 1).
[2] Quotation (also in ps.-Zonaras) unidentifiable.
