The Suda's headword e)ktilou/menoi is very probably a mistake for e)ktilw/menoi, i.e. perfect middle participle (masculine nominative plural) of ktilo/w. (Adler reports that e)ktileme/noi is the reading of mss IVM before correction.) Equivalent entry -- but with the correct spelling -- in Hesychius (epsilon1721), and cf. also Pausanias the Atticist epsilon28 (nominative singulars), and, post-Suda, ps.-Zonaras and Etymologicum Magnum 324.51-52 (both dative plurals).
The headword participle must be quoted from somewhere, but in none of these three grammatical forms is it independently attested.
[1] cf. kappa 2526.
