The bomolochus (Greek βωμολόχοςPolytonic|) is one of the stock characters in Greek Old Comedy, corresponding to the English "buffoon". He is marked by his wit, his crudity of language, and his frequent non-illusory audience address.

In modern Greek language, the word refers to a foul mouthed person
