γράφου φρενῶν ἔσω: so Aesch. Cho. 450τοιαῦτ᾽ ἀκούων ἐν φρεσὶν γράφου”. More often this metaphor is developed by the word “δέλτος” ( Aesch. P. V. 789, Soph. Tr. 683, fr. 537), or a derivative of it ( Suppl. 179 “δελτουμένας”, Eum. 275δελτογράφῳ...φρενί”).

γράφου. The midd. “γράφομαι” is used in prose also (apart from its legal sense, ‘to indict’) of writing down something for one's own use: cp. Her. 2. 82, Her. 8. 135(“συγγραψάμενον”), Plat. Theaet. 142 So “δ. ἀπογράφομαι”, of taking an inventory (Lys. or. 12, § 8).
