The headword is an adjectival derivative (nominative singular masculine) of the verb stre/fw ('turn', 'twist'). The initial lemma, illustrated in the first quotation, applies to a substantival use of the adjective: 'twisted [sc. ornament] = 'torc'. The second quotation illustrates an adjectival application of the word.
[1] cf. the scholia to Xenophon, Anabasis 1.2.27 (where the phrase strepto\n xrusou=n occurs).
[2] Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 117 Habrich. The headword appears here in the genitive singular.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.165.1 (Phalaecus), a line also quoted at beta 140, theta 379, and rho 223. The headword appears here in the accusative singular.
