What we call an ἁψίς ["arch"]. [Book] 12 of [sc. Plato's] Laws: "that an underground depository has been built for them, an oblong vault of precious stones."[1]
Greek Original:
Ψαλίδα: ἣν ἡμεῖς ἁψῖδα φαμέν. Νόμων ιβ#: θήκην δὲ ὑπὸ γῆν αὐτοῖς εἰργασμένην εἶναι ψαλίδα προμήκη λίθων πολυτίμων.

Likewise in Hesychius (and Pollux 9.49). The headword noun is in the accusative case, presumably extracted from the quotation given.
