Ὑπείροχος: ὁ ὑπηρέχων.
cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 6.208, where the accusative case of the headword occurs (web address 1).
The epic/Ionic spelling with epsiloniota results from ὑπερ- preceding the root with initial s (*σεχ- /σοχ- /σχ- ). The gloss would also be better spelled with epsiloniota.
cf. generally the Homeric proper name at upsilon 418.
