[Meaning] character.[1]
"Say many things to him on my behalf: if enlisting Aristeides I said that he had 'come among mankind as an impression of eloquent Hermes', I scarcely did him justice, because he is more than an impression."[2]
And Appian [writes]: "when Marcellus the consul had died, Hannibal stood over his body and, when he saw all his wounds were in his chest, praised him as a soldier but berated him as a general. And he took off his ring and made an impression on a letter with the seal of Marcellus before many had heard of his death, and he sent a Roman deserter to carry it, announcing that the army of Marcellus was coming behind and that Marcellus was ordering it to be received."[3]

Notes:
[1] Same gloss (with another) already in Hesychius.
[2] An approximation of Synesius, Epistle 101 (illustrating the headword). He is quoting -- both here and again in Epistle 159 -- a phrase of Aelius Aristeides, Response to Plato in defence of the Four, which refers to Demosthenes
[3] An approximation of Appian, Hannibalic War 218-219; see already at delta 27. (Rather than the headword, this quotation contains a form of a verb derived from it, e)tu/pwsen, translated here as 'made an impression'.)
