ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!

Now we know that Nikasitimos banged Timion (in the past continuous tense, implying a long stamina) on what is now a remote stone outcrop on the Agean island of Astypalaia, approximately 2,500 years ago.
Hell, pretty much everybody banged Timiona.
It wasn't Timiona. It was Timion (a man) who got banged by another man. The 'a' ending is there to indicate he was the accusative object of said banging. Timion didn't have a female counterpart name, but if it did, then it would be Timionan in this sentence.
So this is not just graffiti, it's gay graffiti.
