The headword -- perfect middle/passive participle of kataxra/w, feminine genitive singular -- is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] The quotation was not identified by Adler but is identifiable via the TLG as a phrase from Cassius Dio, quoted by both John of Antioch (fr.88 FHG, now 168 Roberto) and Constantine Porphyrogenitus (de virtutibus et vitiis). It describes Valeria Messalina, manipulative wife of the emperor Claudius (kappa 1708).
