The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is aorist infinitive of the middle-voice verb e)nde/xomai (epsilon 1163).
[1] Adler suggests Arrian, Parthika p.37, n.133 Roos as the source of the quotation (reproduced more briefly in ps.-Zonaras). The sentence as transmitted, in any event, lacks a main verb.
