The headword is accusative singular of the feminine noun lw/ph.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (see the references at Photius lambda502 Theodoridis), and in the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 13.224, where the headword occurs. For the first (commonplace) glossing word i(ma/tion, itself often translated into English as cloak, cf. iota 338; also iota 339, iota 340. For the headword itself cf. lambda 732, lambda 734, and lambda 735.
[2] Greek Anthology 5.294.9 (Agathias); in part already at lambda 352.
