Headword: Χαλκεῖα
Adler number: chi,35
Translated headword: Chalkeia, Bronzes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
An ancient [sc. Athenian] festival popular long ago, but subsequently observed by the craftsmen only, because Hephaestus worked bronze in Attica. It is on the last day of [the] month Pyanepsion;[1] the day when priestesses, together with the arrephoroi, preserve the peplos.
Greek Original:
Χαλκεῖα: ἑορτὴ ἀρχαία καὶ δημώδης πάλαι, ὕστερον δὲ ὑπὸ μόνων ἤγετο τῶν τεχνιτῶν, ὅτι ὁ Ἥφαιστος ἐν τῇ Ἀττικῇ χαλκὸν εἰργάσατο. ἔστι δὲ ἕνῃ καὶ νέᾳ τοῦ Πυανεψιῶνος: ἐν ᾗ καὶ ἱέρειαι μετὰ τῶν ἀρρηφόρων τὸν πέπλον διάζονται.
Notes:
See also chi 34 and chi 36; and see alpha 3863 for the arrephoroi.
