Dear list members,
I have a question: could anybody give some examples of medieval works that
mention the denomination of "griffoni" or "griffons"?
I mention that generally these "griffoni" could have a double connotation:
an ethnical one (meaning "Greeks") and a social one (meaning "peasants"),
both of them leading directly or indirectly to a pejorative sense: persons
of law condition.
If yes, please, could be elaborated an etymological evolution of it?
Many thanks in advance,
