I've looked for such an Attic translation from Rowling's book and I have: Î‘Î¡Î•Î™ÎŸÎ£ Î ÎŸÎ¤Î—Î¡ ÎšÎ‘Î™ Î— Î¤ÎŸÎ¥ Î¦Î™Î›ÎŸÎ£ÎŸÎ¦ÎŸÎ¥ Î›Î™Î˜ÎŸÎ£. So, I think it's correct because Î· Î»á¼°Î¸Î¿Ï‚ is a feminine substantive. Besides, my dictionary gives it with Î¿ and Î· and then I suppose they are changeable. A look-up in Perseus lexicographic tool gives only the masculine article.

By the way, might you give us a review of the book?
I hope it helps,

The 1883 Liddell Scott reports that Î»Î¯Î¸Î¿Ï‚ can be masculine or feminine. It also reports that special stones, such as magnets or precious stones are always feminine.
