Headword: *xruso\s *kolofw/nios
Adler number: chi,582
Translated headword: Colophonian gold, Kolophonian gold
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The Colophonians[1] worked the finest gold; Colophonian gold, they say, is far superior to any other.[2] Perhaps Lydians exiled from their own country took possession of the gold-mines around Thrace and [the river] Strymon with certain Ionians and were eager for the gold.
Interpretation of a dream: by gaining gold you will fail to achieve the things you desire.[3]
