The headword is nominative plural, but ambiguous as to gender (masculine or feminine). The gloss, which uses the feminine definite article, shows that the lexicographer is thinking of it as feminine. In the quotation, the adjective appears in the accusative plural, but in agreement with a feminine noun.
cf. epsilon 2327.
[1] An approximation of Theophylact Simocatta, Histories 5.8.9. (For Narses see generally nu 42.)
