[The place] in which [sc. bronze-]smiths work.[1]
But 'Dodonian bronze' has two senses.[2]
Greek Original:
*xalkei=on: e)n w(=| xalkeu/ousin. *xalkei=on de\ *dwdwnai=on, diforei=tai.
[1] cf. chi 30.
[2] From delta 1445, where two explanations are offered. The verb diforei=tai elsewhere, including elsewhere in the Suda (see e.g. delta 1384 with delta 1464), can mean 'is pronounced/spelled in two ways', but that hardly fits here; see rather e.g. alpha 297 with alpha 337.
