Greek Original:
*)epikairo/tatos: e)pith/deios. e)n toi=s e)pikai/rois tw=n xwri/wn to/pois. a)nti\ tou= e)pithdei/ois.
[1] Same (rather underwhelming) glossing in other lexica. The headword is superlative, masculine nominative singular, of the adjective e)pi/kairos (cf. generally epsilon 2357, epsilon 2359). If it quoted from somewhere in this precise form, a likely place would be Pindar, Pythians 4.270 (e)ssi\ d' i)ath\r e)pikairo/tatos), which generated scholiastic comment.
[2] Quoted already at epsilon 69; cf. epsilon 646.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; historiography; military affairs; poetry
