The appellative.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] Anthropos, a personal name of the Olympic boxing victor, whom Aristotle mentions in Ethics.[2]

[2] Alexander of Aphrodisias, Commentaries on Aristotle's Topics 114.8-9 Wallies. The passage is Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics 1147b35 (which actually says nothing about boxing: web address 1). That the passage does refer to an individual named Anthropos is only one possible interpretation of it, and it was once routine in modern scholarship to be sceptical; however, the victory-list P.Oxy. 222 (= FGrH 415) does include 'Anthropos' under the year 456 BCE, and he is L. Moretti, Olympionikai (Rome 1957) no.272.
