Translated headword: Chalkeia, Bronzes
Vetting Status: high
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.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., glossing Hyperides fr. 90 Jensen.

[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.).
