The headword phrase, in the nominative case, is presumably generated from the quotation given, where it is genitive.
A zeu=gma (zeta 33), literally a binding, was a bridge or barrier across a waterway improvised by lashing together boats. For 'arms' cf. kappa 2231, kappa 2232.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable. For 'Seleucians' see generally sigma 198.
