[Meaning] he [who is] verbose, a talker.
Greek Original:
*ko/pis: o( la/los, o( r(h/twr.
The headword, the noun ko/pis (not to be confused with the differently-accented kappa 2057), is found in Euripides, Hecuba 132 (web address 1), referring to Odysseus; see also the corresponding scholia.
Lycophron, having a predilection for nonce-words, uses it twice (Alexandra 763 and 1464). The scholia to these verses connect the noun ko/pis with the verb ko/ptw; ko/pis is either the experienced man (u(po\ pollw=n pragma/twn kekomme/nos) or the orator (para\ to\ ko/ptein tou\s lo/gous).
The word is also attested in many lexicographical entries: ps.-Zonaras and Etymologicum Magnum (s.vv. ko/balos and ko/pis); Hesychius and Photius (s.v. a)rgu/rou ko/pis); and Etymologicum Gudianum, which has two entries under ko/pis.
