As LSJ s.v. indicates (web address 1), the headword noun (ending -rie in epic/Ionic dialect, -ria in others) has overtones which depend on context. What may be sometimes (or to some) manly courage easily spills over into damaging pride and arrogance. See e.g. Homer Iliad 22.457 ("cease from the baneful valour that possessed him"); 9.700 ("haughty is he even of himself, and now hast thou yet far more set him amid haughtinesses"); 12.46 ("though his valour is his bane").
