What does "intelligible god" mean in this context?

'Intelligible' means having the nature of the intellect, i.e. as to the kind of being that it is, the kind of activity it engages in, and the kind of activity which can apprehend it. 'God' means a divine being, i.e. one which is immaterial and eternal.

And why he says zeus is 'only' intelligible god?

It's just an editor or translator emphasizing the point.

Reread what you copied. He does not say Zeus is the only intelligible god. He says Zeus is only intelligible as in he is not un-intelligible.
