Headword: *lukiourgi/s
Adler number: lambda,807
Translated headword: Lykian-ware, Lycian-ware
Vetting Status: high
Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Timotheos uses the expression.[1] Didymos asserts that the bowls manufactured by Lykios the son of Myron were referred to in this way.[2] But the grammarian seems to be unaware that one would not find such an expression arising from proper names, rather from cities and peoples; like "a couch Milesian-made"[3] and the like. So perhaps one should write, in Herodotus [book] seven, not two hunting-spears "wolf-made" but "Lykian-made", in order that, just as in Demosthenes, they may be described as being of Lykian manufacture.[4]
