Both the headword (presumably extracted from the quotation given) and the gloss are feminine nouns in the accusative singular.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. What appears to be the main verb of the quotation, h(/koi, is in the optative mood, which might mean different things depending on the context; here it is translated as indirect discourse in secondary sequence.
