Greek Original:
Ἐπεκώμαζεν: ὠρχεῖτο, αἰσχρῶς ἐλάλει. ὁ δὲ προεκθέων ἐπεκώμαζε τοῖς βαρβάροις. καὶ αὖθις: πολλαὶ εἰς τὰς ἐκκλησίας ἐπεκώμασαν ταραχαί.
The headword is imperfect indicative active, third person singular, of the compound verb ἐπικωμάζω (cf. epsilon 2408) Perhaps extracted from the quotation given (in which case it seems to bear the inceptive sense translated here), though it lacks the nu-moveable there, and there are known alternatives in John Chrysostom and Procopius.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler identifiable via TLG searching as Isidore of Pelusium, Epistles 1237.2. It uses the corresponding aorist of the headword verb.
