[Meaning] pledges/securities. As lusima ["redeemable things"] and lutrosima ["ransomable things"].

Neuter plural(s).
LSJ s.v. λύμα B records this meaning of the word only for the Suda (as distinct from its normal meaning in lambda 834). As a verbal noun, it would be derived from λύω "loosen" rather than λυμαίνω "spoil". The same definition occurs in Photius lambda484, and Theodoridis connects it there to ἐνέχυρα λύσιμα "redeemable pledges" in Plato, Laws 820E. (The word occurs in Photius near to where, alphabetically, λύσιμα would occur, which might suggest it was originally a gloss on λύσιμα .)
