Greek Original:
*)epefu/onto: e)ph/rxonto. kai\ e)pe/fusa/n oi( sukofa/ntai, kai\ to\ e)/gklhma h)=n, *di/wni e)/faskon ei)=nai fi/lon.
For this compound verb, e)pifu/w, see also epsilon 2759.
[1] Likewise in Hesychius and other lexica. The headword must be quoted from somewhere -- but not the quotation given here, which has aorist, not imperfect. Extant instances begin with one in Plutarch (Alexander 55.2, using Callisthenes: FGrH 124 F7) but by far the largest number of them is in Cyril of Alexandra.
[2] Quotation -- first part also in ps.-Zonaras -- unidentifiable; Adler (addenda) suggests Aelian.
