KLHQHSETAI hH IEROUSALHM POLIS hH ALHQINH KAI TO OROS KURIOU PANTOKRATOROS OROS hAGION.
 
POLIS hH ALHQINH is translated "a true city" in Brenton's translation and "a city that is true" in the NETS translation.
 
What purpose does the definite article serve before ALHQINH? Why isn't in the form POLIS ALHQINH in parallel with OROS hAGION? Alternatively, why not OROS TO hAGION in parallel with POLIS hH ALHQINH?
 
POLIS hH ALHQINH is literally "a city, the true one"?
