[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is aorist infinitive of ἐπικωμάζω ; cf. under kappa 2263. It must be extracted from somewhere (other than the quotation given here: see next note). Extant possibilities include Diogenes Laertius 7.13 on King Antigonus Gonatas' attempts to inveigle Zeno into parties (τὸν βασιλέα ἐπικωμάσαι αὐτῷ κτλ ).
[2] Isidore of Pelusium, Epistles 1237.2, quoted already at epsilon 2041. It includes the third person plural, aorist indicative, of the headword verb.
