[1] Same (rather underwhelming) glossing in other lexica. The headword is superlative, masculine nominative singular, of the adjective ἐπίκαιρος (cf. generally epsilon 2357, epsilon 2359). If it quoted from somewhere in this precise form, a likely place would be Pindar, Pythians 4.270 (ἐσσὶ δ' ἰατὴρ ἐπικαιρότατος ), which generated scholiastic comment.
[2] Quoted already at epsilon 69; cf. epsilon 646.
