[Meaning someone who was] filled with conceit.[1] "But he often being successful in battles and having become presumptuous in regard to courage [...]."[2]

The headword -- perfect participle, masculine nominative singular, of fronhmati/zomai (phi 723, phi 724, and cf. phi 725) -- is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable -- but very probably from Diodorus Siculus, who has the only instances of the headword (4 passages) outside this entry.
