Abbot Barthelemu : Travels of Anacherbis the Younger in Greece during the middle of the fourth century before the Christian Era

Vol 7 On the Griphi and Impromptus (quotation) 'I was very large at my birth and likeways in old age; but very small when at maturity.' A Shadow. Such also is this 'There are two sisters who incessantly ... each other day and night.' both of which words are in Greek. Other Griphi turn on the resemblance of names as for example 'What is that which is at once found on the earth, in the sea and in the heavens' - The Dog, the Serpent and the Boar.
