Greek Original:
Χειρισμόν: ἐπιχείρησιν. Πολύβιος: ὅταν γένηται ταῦτα κατὰ χειρισμὸν ἰσοταχῆ. καὶ αὖθις: ὥστε μὴ μόνον ἀλόγιστον, ἀλλὰ καὶ μανιώδη φαίνεσθαι τὸν χειρισμὸν τῶν πραγμάτων. ἀντὶ τοῦ τὴν ἐπιχείρησιν, τὴν πρᾶξιν.
The headword is accusative case, presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Polybius 10.44.9.
