Vetting Status: high
[tw= is spelled] without an iota, meaning 'for this reason' [dio/]. It is also feminine, masculine, and neuter dual.
Greek Original:
*tw=: xwri\s tou= i a)nti\ tou= dio/. kai\ duikw=s e)pi\ qhlukou= kai\ a)rsenikou= kai\ ou)dete/rou.
The form without an iota (subscript) is an adverb or else a pronoun/adjective in the dual number. Either way, an acute accent is called for. See Apolloniu Dyscolus' comment on the adverb in LSJ under tw=|: ou)/te perispa=tai ou)/te su\n tw=| i gra/fetai "it is written neither with a circumflex accent nor with an iota."
cf. a scholion on Sophocles, Electra 977, where tw/ occurs as the feminine dual definite article.
See also tau 875 (and delta 1135 for dio/).
