The headword phrase, in the dative case, is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
The (unglossed) quotation itself, found only here, is unidentifiable, but it looks like post-classical historiography. (Compare very generally Diodorus Siculus 16.94.3 on the assassination of Philip II of Macedon.)
The adjective diantaios is prominent not only in medical literature but in Attic tragedy, especially Aeschylus. For its figurative as well as literal applications see LSJ s.v.
