Vetting Status: high
"Let no one fear an approach of wings." [This phrase occurs] in the Epigrams. ['Approach'] meaning arrival, coming, sending-forth.[1]
Greek Original:
*)eph/lusin: mh\ pteru/gwn trome/oi tis e)ph/lusin. e)n *)epigra/mmasin. a)nti\ tou= a)/ficin, e)pe/leusin, e)/kpemyin.
The headword is accusative singular of the noun e)ph/lusis (epsilon 2177, epsilon 2178). It is probably extracted from the epigram quoted here, though one should note that the scholia to the instance in Oppian, Halieutica 4.228, give the second of these three glossing synonyms.
[1] Greek Anthology 5.268.3 (Paul the Silentiary).
