[Meaning] listener.[1] "O greatest among the goddesses, and hearkener to your attendants."[2]

Κατήκοε: ἀκροατά. ὦ μεγίστη θεῶν, καὶ τῶν σῶν κατήκοε θεραπόντων. καὶ αὖθις: οἱ δὲ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐγένοντο κατήκοοι.
Notes:
[1] Both the headword (presumably drawn from the first quotation given) and its gloss are vocative singular.
[2] Tentatively attribted by Adler to Iamblichus; now Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 38 Habrich.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. The sense 'be obedient' is common in Herodotus (see LSJ s.v. II); also in e.g. Procopius.
