Epalaien: Septuagint Genesis 32:24; see diepalaien in Josephus, Antiquities 1.331. In Septuagint Genesis 32:25, the infinitive palaiein is used. The verb palaio is also used in the same context by Demetrius, the Jewish-Hellenistic writer of a short Greek history of Israel, who flourished in the late third to early second century B.C.E. The passage is preserved in a work of the fourth-century C.E. Christian bishop and theologian, Eusebius of Caesarea (Evangelical Preparation 9.21.7); I am grateful to Dr. Nikos Kokkinos for bringing the reference to my attention.
