Same or similar entry in other lexica. Aorist infinitives. The headword one -- which can also be accented γρῦξαι -- is presumably quoted from somewhere; if so, extant possibilities include Isaeus (8.27), Herodas and Philostratus; note, however, that Latte on Photius s.v. cites instances of other forms of this verb in the Septuagint (Exodus 11.7, Joshua 10.21).
The verb γρύζω (already at gamma 462), especially common in comedy, literally means 'to make a sound like gru' (gamma 461).
cf. also gamma 464.
Keywords: comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; poetry; religion; rhetoric; zoology
