Adler number: iota,516
Translated headword: of a gryphon
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[A gryphon is] a kind of creature.
Greek Original:
Ἱππαλεκτρυόνος: εἶδος ζῴου.
Notes:
Literally 'horse-cockerel'; mentioned in Aristophanes (Frogs 932 and 937: web address 1; Birds 800: web address 2; Peace 1177: web address 3). Aristophanes borrows the word from Aeschylus' Myrmidons (fr. 134). The headword here is in the genitive case, a form that otherwise survives only in the scholia to Aristophanes' Peace and (thence) in lexicography. See also delta 1053 and xi 81.
The 'horse-cockerel' is depicted on many black-figure vases.
