Looking at this again, I think I gave the wrong answer. It would be better to say that somebody "pulled a face" at him.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks a lot! :)

Asker: Thanks again, Philip. I got the idea and, anyway, the explanation will appear on a footnote; I do not translate them but rather keep them on the text as the Author did on the English original.

Asker: P.S. By "them" I mean, of course, all the Greek terms the Author uses; to add some local colour, I guess ;)
