Is the nucleus of the monosyllabic word a diphthong?

Oh, jeez, I'm sorry. I've had a very busy past few months, and I guess I ended up forgetting about this. I also know rather little about Old English and was getting stuck/frustrated. I'd be willing to let Ælfwine go next, but I do want to finish this round.

To recap:

edät
/əˈdɛt/
  • Used primarily as a conjunction, but can also be used as a preposition.
  • Originated as a contraction of a two-word phrase used in Old English.
  • The second of the two words is cognate with English "that", but the first has no cognate in Modern English.
  • In Old English, the first word was monosyllabic, vowel-initial, and ended in a consonant.
  • The nucleus of the first word was /o/.

Did the coda of the first, monosyllabic word contain multiple consonants?

Edit: Was the first word , and does this new word mean something like "until"?
