Vetting Status: high
The so-called[1] purple-selling [porfuropwlikh/]. Thus Isaeus [sc. uses the term].[2]
Greek Original:
*(alourgopwlikh/: h( porfuropwlikh\ legome/nh. ou(/tws *)isai=os.
cf. generally alpha 1357, alpha 1358, alpha 1359. The present headword is feminine nominative singular of this adjective, either attached to or implying a noun such as te/xnh.
[1] The words "by us", in the equivalent entry in Harpokration, are omitted here ["what we call..."]; the point is that "purple-selling" is the more commonplace word of the two.
[2] Isaeus fr. 38 Sauppe.
On purple, derived from shellfish, see generally OCD(4) s.v. (pp.1242-3).
