Greek Original:
Ὑπεξέπεμψεν: ὑπεξήγαγεν, ἀπέπεμψεν. Ἰάμβλιχος: ὄντας ὡραίους καὶ καλοὺς τοὺς παῖδας ὁ πατὴρ ὑπεξέπεμψεν εἰς τοὺς ποιμένας, φοβούμενος τύραννον ὑβριστήν.
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given (though there are also e.g. two instances in Euripides' Hecuba), is aorist indicative active, third person singular, of the verb ὑπεκπέμπω .
