The ancients used to call pederasts "wild" and kollopodioktes[3].
[Note] that the comic poets used to make fun of the Acharnians as wild and rough. See under drakharneu.[4]

Ἀγρίους: Αἰσχίνης ἐν τῷ κατὰ Τιμάρχου τοὺς σφόδρα ἐπτοημένους περὶ τὰ παιδικὰ οὕτως ὠνόμασε. καὶ Μένανδρος δὲ ἄγριον εἶπε κυβευτὴν τὸν λίαν περὶ τὸ κυβεύειν ἐσπουδακότα. ἀγρίους καὶ κολλοποδιώκτας ἐκάλουν οἱ παλαιοὶ τοὺς παιδεραστάς. ὅτι ἐκωμῳδοῦντο οἱ Ἀχαρνεῖς ὡς ἄγριοι καὶ σκληροί: καὶ ζήτει ἐν τῷ δραχαρνεῦ.
