He is famous for his Attic Nights, a commonplace book, or compilation of notes on grammar, philosophy, history, antiquarianism, and other subjects, preserving fragments of the works of many authors who might otherwise be unknown today.

Sebastian Gryphius(French: Sébastien Gryphe; c. 1492, Reutlingen– 1556, Lyon) was a Germanbookseller-printerand humanist.

He was the son of Michael Greyff (Greif, Gryff, Gryph), and learned from him the new craft of printing, in Germany and then in Venice. Around 1520 he came to Lyonand settled there, on behalf of a Venetian firm of booksellers.
