Εἶσαν: ὑπετάγησαν. ἢ συνῆκαν.
Notes:
It is not clear what verb the headword would be with a smooth breathing (but for a possible connection with "knowing," cf. εἴδω at epsiloniota 41). With a rough breathing, εἷσαν could be aorist active either of ἵημι or of ἵζω .
cf. already Hesychius epsilon1089.
