Ὑπειπούσης: παρ' Ἀριστοφάνει ἀντὶ τοῦ ἠρέμα φθεγξαμένης. κατεσπούδασθαί σοι, ὦ γενναῖε, καὶ τὸ τῆς πρεσβείας ὑπειπὼν ὄνομα, ἐν μοίρᾳ ἡμᾶς τῇ ἀτιμοτάτῃ συντάξαι.
[1] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 997, where the headword -- aorist participle, feminine genitive singular -- is used by an old woman referring to herself (web address 1). For the verb ὑπεῖπον (only in the aorist), see also upsilon 413.
[2] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 7.16.27 (also in the Excerpta de Legationibus of Constantine Porphyrogenitus 114.25-6). Manuscripts GVM of the Suda read κατεσπούδασταί σοι "you have taken a serious interest"; the text of Procopius reads συνέταξας "you have assigned."
