The headword as glossed here is masculine accusative singular (rather than neuter nominative/accusative, as in (?)Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 350, a)/xqos ou)k eu)a/gkalon) of this adjective, which literally means easy to carry in one's arms. It is presumably extracted from the quotation given here.
