A combination of data from at least two hands working independently of one another (see esp. n. 3). The headword is third person plural, aorist indicative middle/passive, of e)piti/qhmi (quoted from somewhere indeterminable). The quotation contains the corresponding singular form of the same verb.
[1] Up to this point the entry = Lexica Segueriana 227.1.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler, but identifiable via the TLG as Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 3.3.7, concerning John the usurper; cf. upsilon 399. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.XCIII.
[3] The verb in question does not normally have these connotations (web address 1 for the LSJ entry). They are probably extrapolated from the quotation independently of the first part of the entry.
