Greek Original:
Ἀποκαραδοκία: προσδοκία. καὶ Ἀποκαραδοκῶν, προσδοκῶν. ὁ δὲ καθῆστο ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ ἀποκαραδοκῶν, ὅποι καὶ τύχης χωρήσοι τὰ πράγματα. σημαίνει δὲ καὶ τὴν ἀνελπιστίαν.

[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword is taken to be quoted from the New Testament (Romans 8.19, cf. Philippians 1.20).
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (As Adler noted, attributed by Tittman to Polybius, who does use this verb -- but so do others.)
