I found gForth (with metacompiler and cross compiler) and mips-forth,
a threaded forth implemented for the Spim simulator.

Has anybody tried to put gForth on Epiphany?

No. I'll be honest, you're better off trying to implement in hand-tuned assembly- because gForth's going to be a bit largish being compiled from C code. Since I've not looked closely at the assembly architecture, unless there's something there to make Threading "easier" and to manage a stack, Forth's actually going to be a PAIN on it. More to the point, unless you've got good constructs for doing parallel programming in your dictionary, it's of less use than one would think
