The headword, which must be quoted from somewhere, is plural (accusative, as the glossing shows) of the neuter noun e)/nausma. See already Hesychius epsilon2711 with two of these three glosses, and cf. epsilon2710 for the singular with gloss lei/yanon (lit. "what remains of the burning coil under the ashes, to be kindled again").
[1] Aelian fr. 92k Domingo-Forasté (part of 89 Hercher). For the verb cf. under epsilon 1137.
