[Meaning] manly, not slacking, nor softening, nor becoming flaccid.[1]

Likewise in ps.-Zonaras. The headword is the masculine/feminine nominative singular (here feminine: see next note) of the two-termination adjective a)/qruptos; cf. theta 519, theta 520, theta 521.
[1] The second, third and fourth of these glosses show that the headword itself is feminine, as in the quotation given; cf. theta 519.
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 98 Zintzen (50 Asmus); again at delta 1461. On the Dorian mode "perceived as dignified and manly" see M.L. West, Ancient Greek Music (Oxford 1992) 179-80.
