Yes; in fact, you might note the parallel passage in Mk 14:72, where DIS
refers to FWNHSAI, TRIS to APARNHSHi: KAI EUQUS EK DEUTEROU ALEKTWR
EFWNHSEN. KAI ANEMNHSQH hO PETROS TO hRHMA hWS EIPEN AUTWi hO IHSOUS hOTI
PRIN ALEKTORA FWNSAI DIS TRIS ME APARNHSHi. Some would argue that Mark's
version is earlier and has been redacted by Matthew, but that's not a
question to argue here.

the article can turn any word, adverb or other, into a substantive; in this
instance the substantive is feminine because the noun hHMERA is understood.
