Headword: Παρία λίθος
Adler number: pi,644
Translated headword: Parian marble
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Feminine, the stone [of that name].[1]
Aelian [writes]: "and yet a chariot [made] of Parian marble that had been dedicated to Dionysus, a marvelous work, he broke into the temple and carried off."[2]
Greek Original:
Παρία λίθος: θηλυκόν, ἡ λίθος. Αἰλιανός: καὶ μέντοι καὶ Παρίας λίθου ἅρμα ἀνακείμενον Διονύσῳ, ποίημα θαυμαστόν, ἀνείλετο θεοσυλήσας.
Notes:
[1] The noun λίθος may be masculine or feminine; see LSJ s.v. A.II (web address 1 below). For the marble, prized for its whiteness, from the Aegean island of Paros cf. pi 643.
[2] Aelian fr. 128 Domingo-Forasté (125 Hercher); the Suda provides the only evidence for this incident. Hercher emends the final Greek word from an aorist participle to the adjective θεοσύλης : "the sacrilegious man carried off".
