Headword: Χαλκῷ
Adler number: chi,56
Translated headword: with a bronze [one]
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] with an iron [one].[1]
The material itself [is] chalke. But [one says] chalkous statue, the derivative adjective. And the feminine [is] chalke, as with chrysous ["golden"] and chrysos ["gold"].[2]
Greek Original:
Χαλκῷ: σιδήρῳ. ὅτι χαλκῆ αὐτὴ ἡ ὕλη. χαλκοῦς δὲ ἀνδριάς, τὸ μετουσιαστικόν. καὶ τὸ θηλυκὸν ἡ χαλκῆ, ὡς χρυσοῦς καὶ χρυσός.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 2.417, where the dative-case headword occurs (of an unstated weapon). For the metallurgical illogicality involved here cf. already under chi 54.
[2] Also at alpha 2714.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; military affairs; science and technology; trade and manufacture
