I would like to create a "normal" footnote inside epigraph command.

This command cites the reference in a footnote just below the epigraph and not at the end of the page :

\epigraph{text}{source\footcite{key}}

For example :

\epigraph{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Ut purus elit, vestibulum ut}{Author\footcite{author00:_title}}

creates : enter image description here How can I create a normal footnote?

MWE :

\begin{filecontents}{bib.bib}
@Book{author00:_title,
  author =   {Author},
  title =    {Title},
  publisher =    {Publisher},
  year =     2000}
\end{filecontents}

\documentclass[12pt,twoside,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[english,french]{babel}
\frenchbsetup{StandardLists=true}

\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{graphicx} 
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{xspace}
\usepackage{epigraph}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\usepackage[autostyle=true]{csquotes}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp,
     hyperref,
     backend=biber,
     isbn=false,
     doi=false,
     url=false,
     date=year]{biblatex}
\AtEveryBibitem{\clearlist{language}}
\renewcommand*{\newunitpunct}{\addcomma\space}
\bibliography{bib}
\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\epigraph{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Ut purus elit, vestibulum ut}{Author\footcite{author00:_title}}
test
\end{document}

@HarishKumar Sorry I updated my question. footcite calls footnote so it is the same thing. And \footnotemark has the same behavior. –  ppr Jan 15 at 13:49

Just use \footcitetext:

\epigraph{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. 
  Ut purus elit, vestibulum ut}{Author\footnotemark}
\footcitetext{author00:_title}

@HarishKumar I'm a great expert in biblatex, as you know. ;-) Just did a ack search for \footcite and I happened to find near it \footcitetext. Et voilà. –  egreg Jan 15 at 14:00
    
Maybe I am using this approach wrong, but here is what I am getting: 1) Footnote is bold regular size text (not footnotesize); 2) Latex commands (\textit) are included literally; 3) Hyphenation does not work. What am I missing? –  ajeh Aug 17 at 22:58
