[Meaning] boastful. "[...] and [they being] arrogant in character, as if they had already prevailed."[1]
Greek Original:
Ὑπερθιγῶν: ἀλαζόνων. καὶ τοῖς φρονήμασιν ὑπερθιγῶν, ὡς ἂν ἤδη κεκρατηκότων.
The headword adjective ὑπερθιγής , here actually in the genitive plural, is presumably extracted from the quotation given. It is otherwise unattested.
