The headword is neuter accusative singular of the present participle of e)/cesti, it is possible. It is frequently used as accusative absolute, as in the Josephus passage quoted here (from which the headword is perhaps, but not necessarily, extracted).
cf. epsilon 1800 and see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] Same glossing, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. (This is the meaning of dunato/n in a passive sense. In an active sense the meaning is strong, mighty, able to). The synonymity of e)co/n and dunato/n is nicely illustrated by pi 693, where they appear together as glosses of paro/n.
[2] Josephus, Jewish War 5.333, with slight differences (see web address 1); see already delta 1677. The subject is Titus (*kai=sar), son of the new emperor Vespasian, during the siege of Jerusalem. For Josephus see generally iota 502, iota 503.
