Headword: Χαλκεῖα
Adler number: chi,36
Translated headword: Chalkeia, Bronzes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A festival among Athenians, celebrated on the last day of [the month] Pyanepsion,[1] for craftsmen in general and bronze-smiths in particular, as Apollonius says.[2] But Phanodemus maintains that the festival is celebrated not for Athena but for Hephaestus.[3]
Greek Original:
Χαλκεῖα: ἑορτὴ παρ' Ἀθηναίοις, ἀγομένη Πυανεψιῶνος ἕνῃ καὶ νέᾳ, χειρώναξι κοινή, μάλιστα δὲ χαλκεῦσιν, ὥς φησιν Ἀπολλώνιος. Φανόδημος δέ φησιν οὐκ Ἀθηνᾷ ἄγεσθαι τὴν ἑορτήν, ἀλλ' Ἡφαίστῳ.

[2] Apollonius FGrH 356 F3.
[3] Phanodemus FGrH 325 F18. This form of words suggests that "for Athena" should be supplied in the citation of Apollonius (both here and in the immediate source, Harpok.).
