[Meaning] she who subdues/tames gods.

Note:
The feminine nominative headword must be quoted from somewhere but is attested only here. LSJ seem to classify it as noun rather than adjective, but for such an adjective see the phrase (in a epigram quoted by several authors) θειοδάμοις ... ἀνάγκαις 'god-subduing compulsions'.
