This man was one of those slandered for effeminacy. But some Grypos [i.e. spelled] with a pi; [he] who was a catamite. That is, a lecher. Aristophanes [writes]: "I stopped the fuckers by wiping out Grypos."[1]
Greek Original:
Γρύττος: τῶν ἐπὶ μαλακίᾳ διαβαλλομένων οὗτος ἦν. οἱ δὲ Γρῦπον λέγουσι διὰ τοῦ π: ὃς ἦν καταπύγων. ἤτοι λαγνός. Ἀριστοφάνης: ἔπαυσα τοὺς βινουμένους τὸν Γρῦπον ἐξαλείψας.
