Hi Yigal,  I think, it's the only example of the common word 'oteka that
both falls at pause and has final he.  The final he makes the more common
pausal form 'otakh impossible.  I suspect the combination of the two
circumstances causes the form.  Of course, it could be simply a riddle in
honor of Purim!  ;-)

Shalom,  Bryan
