The entry appears to be a garbled remnant of a scholion to Aristophanes, Thesmophoriazusae 389, where most of the commentary pertains to the verb e)pismh=| ('smear', here in the sense of 'denigrate') which occurs in that passage, and to which the present headword is mentioned as a related word. Contrast Hesychius sigma1302, Photius sigma412 Theodoridis; and see also sigma 746.
