The headword participle is presumably extracted from the first quotation given -- on which see n.1 below.

[1] Adler tentatively attributed this quotation to Aelian, but TLG searching raises two other possibilities. (a) C. Theodoridis in his Photius edition (vol.II p.XVC) suggests Procopius, Secret History 17.16, where a)peipw\n mhdeni\ fra/zein occurs. (b) The present translator independently suggests Herodotus 3.153.1, where a)pei/pas toi=s i)dou=si mhdeni\ fra/zein to\ gegono/s occurs (Zopyrus enjoins silence upon those who had seen a mule giving birth to a foal: web address 1). Given Procopius' well-recognised debt to Herodotus -- see Averil Cameron, Procopius (1985) index s.v. -- it might be that P.'s phrase here is an echo, probably unconscious, of H.'s.
[2] Aelian fr. 123g Domingo-Forasté (part of 120 Hercher).
[3] Quotation (and subject!) unidentifiable.
