noun. Change the article to hE and voila, a female soldier.

In this case, the adj harmartOlos is used substantively,further
identifiying guvE, and the NT does use the word substantively the majority
of instances. Most Western languages tend to use stative adjectives and
"participles" as nouns-so I would be wary trying to press this into an
adjectival paradigm looking for "feminine" endings.
