A proper name.
[sc. It was he] who used to be ridiculed in comedy for dainty living; he was one of the hedonists; [also] a tragic poet. And Aristophanes: [says] "o you, beloved and craved for so long, [...] dear to Morychus".[1]
Greek Original:
Μόρυχος: ὄνομα κύριον. ὃς ἐπὶ ὀψοφαγίᾳ ἐκωμῳδεῖτο: ἦν δὲ καὶ τῶν ἡδέως βιούντων: τραγῳδίας ποιητής. καὶ Ἀριστοφάνης: ὦ φιλτάτη σὺ καὶ πάλαι ποθουμένη, φίλη Μορύχῳ.
For Morychus, apart from the quoted verses (n.1 below), see also Aristophanes, Wasps 506, 1142 and Peace 1008, with the corresponding scholia. In the Suda, see epsiloniota 68, kappa 1137, mu 1265, mu 1266 and omicron 581. Also see Plato, Phaedrus 227B, and Plato Comicus fr.114 K.-A. (106 Kock), referred to in phi 125.
This Morychus should not be confused with the Μόρυχος or Μώρυχος who is identified with Dionysus; for the related proverb Μωρότερος Μωρύχου see mu 1343 (deriving from Sophron fr.74 Kaibel); Photius s.vv. Μωρότερος Μωρύχου and Τοῦ Μορύχου .
