[1] Aristophanes, Acharnians 451-2 (web address 1 below), followed by comment from the scholia there; cf. lambda 579. The verb λιπαρέω could be transitive as well as intransitive, and both of these entries appear to treat it as the former; however, as the translation shows, "Euripides" (which should be vocative anyway) is part of the following sentence.
[2] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Peace 193, where the word occurs.
[3] Likewise already in Hesychius.
