accent in infinitive "diakatharai"

Hi, Everybody:
I've come across the infinitive "diakatharai" with acute (7-th century A.D. text). I checked in TLG, and found some random examples with circumflex, but none with the acute.
Is the variant with the acute grammatically possible, or is it definitely a typo?

I've been skipping around the Loeb Baebrius & Phaedrus (ed. Perry) which is an ornament to the series: it contains an excellent introduction to the entire tradition of fable writing and a 100+ pg. appendix titled "An Analytical Survey of Greek & Latin Fables in the Aesopic Tradition" that gives a summary and references for nearly every fable that has come down to us in Greek or Latin. Anyways, as a fun exercise I thought ...
