Greek Original:
Ἐπεκάλει: ὠνείδιζεν, ἐμέμφετο. καὶ αὐτῷ μὲν οὐδεὶς ἐπεκάλει τῶν πώποτε φίλων οὔτε ὄκνου πρόφασιν οὔτε μαλακιζομένην τινὰ ἀναβολὴν ἐν ταῖς χρείαις, οὔτε ῥᾳθυμίαν ἀργίας ἔκγονον ἢ δειλίας. ὁ δὲ πολλοῖς ἐπεκάλει τῶν φίλων τὰ τοιαῦτα ἐγκλήματα. ἀντὶ τοῦ ὠνείδιζε. καὶ αὖθις: ἐπεκάλουν αὐτὸν φθορέα τῶν νέων καὶ κιναιδολόγον ἀποκαλοῦντες.
[1] For this verb cf. epsilon 2349, epsilon 2350, epsilon 2351. Its third person singular imperfect, here, is presumably extracted from the first quotation given, though there are earlier instances, one of which (Lucian, Phalaris 1.2) generated scholiastic glossing.
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 64 Zintzen (237 and 18 Asmus)
[3] Diogenes Laertius 4.40, on Arcesilaus (alpha 3950).
