Greek Original:
Ἀμηγέπη: ὁπωσδήποτε, καθ' ὁτιοῦν. λέγεται δὲ καὶ Ἀμωσγέπως καὶ Ἀμόθεν καὶ Ἀμουγέπου καὶ Ἀμηγέποι καὶ Ἀμωσγέποι. Ἀριστοφάνης: ὑμᾶς μὲν ἀεὶ μισθοφορεῖν ἀμηγέποι. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἁπανταχοῦ, ὅπως ἂν τύχοι, καθ' οἷον δήποτε τρόπον. καὶ αὖθις: ἀλλ' ἀμηγέπη τῶν παρατεθέντων ἀπογευσάμενος ἀωρὶ νύκτωρ περιήρχετο τὴν βασιλικὴν αὐλήν. καὶ Ἀμηγέπη Ἀγαθίας φησίν: ἀλύοντι δὲ καὶ ἕκαστα γνωματεύοντι, ἔδοξέν οἱ ἀμηγέπη ἀποπειρᾶσθαι τοῦ φρουρίου.
[1] So too in other lexica; references at Photius alpha1189 Theodoridis. From the scholia to Plato, Sophist 259D, where the headword appears.
[2] Aristophanes, Acharnians 608 (web address 1), with scholion.
[3] Adler suggested Aelian; but in fact, as the TLG reveals, a close approximation of Procopius, Secret History 12.27. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II pp.XCI-XCII.
[4] Agathias, Histories 1.10; see already alpha 1428.
