[Archestratos] and [sc. also attested is the adjective] 'Archestrateian'.
Greek Original:
*)arxe/stratos kai\ *)arxestra/teios.
The name Archestratos is commonplace enough, but most bearers of it did not generate a cognate adjective. So this is perhaps A. the mid-C4 BCE poet of Gela, in Sicily; he composed a culinary tour of the Mediterranean in hexameter verse, the Hedupatheia (also known as the Gastronomia Deipnologia and the Opsopoiia), which imitates Hesiod's Works and Days. See OCD(4) s.v. (p.140).
