Notes:
= Synagoge epsilon755; Photius, Lexicon epsilon1751; cf. Hesychius epsilon5322; Apollonius Sophistes, Homeric Lexicon 74.28; scholia to Homer, Iliad 2.25 (see further below); Etymologicum Magnum 365.52-4.
The headword occurs in Homer, Iliad 2.25 (web address 1), repeated 2.62 (web address 2). It is perfect indicative middle/passive, third person plural, of ἐπιτρέπω , in what ancient authorities (Apollonius, Herodian 3.2.223, Eustathius ad loc.) identify as an Ionic form. The gloss is simply a more common periphrasis for the perfect middle.
All attestations of this form outside grammatical and lexicographical writings occur in quotations of the Homeric line or, in the case of Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 4.134F (4.13 Kaibel), in a parody of Iliad 5.750 (web address 3), where the current (plural) verb is soloecistically employed with a singular subject (in Homer's original the verb was the singular ἐπιτέτραπται ).
