Adler reports a comparable headword in the Ambrosian Lexicon (1150). Here, unglossed, it is nominative singular of this very rare adjective, presumably generated by the accusative singular in the quotation.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's opinion, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable, but the key phrase to\n propo/leon ko/smon is attested in Basil of Caesarea, On Gordius the martyr PG 31.489.30 (in an image about beehives).
