The headword (illustrated in the second of the quotations given, but probably not generated by it), is present middle/passive participle, masculine nominative singular, of the contract verb streblo/w, I twist tight, strain tight, stretch on the wheel or rack; see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The headword is identically glossed in the Synagoge (sigma251) and Photius' Lexicon (sigma614 Theodoridis); cf. the corresponding plural forms of the headword and glossing participles in a scholion (4.25 Rabe) to Lucian, Phalaris 1.4.
[2] Aelian fr. 176 Hercher (179 Domingo-Forasté); cf. kappa 818 (in part) and pi 1078.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Eunapius.) [In her critical apparatus Adler reports that ms G transmits pare/lipe, he did not fail.]
