N/A ( and Swanson ) record one source -- P74 -- as reading EPIKALOUMENOS.
So it looks as if one scribe and/or his community back in the 7th, century
had decided
  to clear up any ambiguity about this question': or perhaps it had been
raised long before that and was firmly part of their tradtion?

However, Swanson has one variant reading --- in 33 -- of APOLUSE.
Can I take this to be an unaugmented aorist?
And how common was this in mss. of that period, I wonder?
