*)epistei/bwn: peripatw=n.
Poetic verb, here in the present participle, masculine nominative singular. Same entry in Photius and other lexica, though earlier Hesychius (epsilon5239) had glossed the plural e)pistei/bontes. If the singular is authentically quoted from somewhere, the source is perhaps Nicander (Theriaca 32 or 570).
cf. sigma 1075.
