Headword: *pe/rdikos i(ero/n
Adler number: pi,1042
Translated headword: Perdix's shrine
Vetting Status: high
[Located] near the [sc. Athenian] acropolis. For the children of Eupalamos were Daidalos[1] and Perdix; Perdix was the mother of Kalos;[2] Daidalos, jealous of Kalos' skill, threw him down from the acropolis; this led Perdix to hang herself; and the Athenians worshipped her. But Sophocles in Comics [says that] Perdix was the one killed by Daidalos.[3]

Likewise in Photius, Lexicon pi625 Theodoridis, and similarly elsewhere.
[1] For Daidalos (Daedalus) see generally delta 106, delta 107, delta 108, delta 109, delta 110.
[2] Pausanias 1.21.4 (web address 1) mentions a tomb of Kalos (between the theatre and the acropolis) and confirms that his uncle murdered him. (He says nothing, however, about a 'shrine of Perdix'.)
[3] Sophocles fr. 323 Radt (in Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 9.388F [9.41 Kaibel]). The correct name of the play is not *kwmikoi/ but *kamikoi/, the Sicilian home of Cocalus; cf. Strabo 6.3.2. Furthermore, the fragment does not say what is claimed for it here.
