[Meaning] to subordinate.[1]

Χειρώσασθαι: ὑποτάξαι. Αἰλιανός: καὶ ἐκ τούτων χειρώσασθαι τὸν ἄνδρα καὶ ἔχειν αὐτὸν ὡς εἰπεῖν ἰδιόξενον.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword, aorist middle infinitive of χειρόω , is perhaps extracted from the quotation given below, though the other lexica do not have it, and there are numerous other possibilities (from Herodotus and Thucydides onwards).
