Headword: Χρυσὸς Κολοφώνιος
Adler number: chi,582
Translated headword: Colophonian gold, Kolophonian gold
Vetting Status: high
The Colophonians[1] worked the finest gold; Colophonian gold, they say, is far superior to any other.[2] Perhaps Lydians exiled from their own country took possession of the gold-mines around Thrace and [the river] Strymon with certain Ionians and were eager for the gold.
Interpretation of a dream: by gaining gold you will fail to achieve the things you desire.[3]
Greek Original:
Χρυσὸς Κολοφώνιος: οἱ Κολοφώνιοι τὸν κάλλιστον χρυσὸν εἰργάσαντο: καὶ γὰρ πολύ φασι παραλλάττειν τοῦ ἄλλου τὸν Κολοφώνιον χρυσόν. καὶ τάχα ἴσως οἱ ἐκπεσόντες τῆς οἰκείας Λυδῶν τὰ περὶ Θρᾴκην καὶ Στρυμόνα χρύσεια κατέσχον μέταλλα σύν τισιν Ἰώνων καὶ ἐσπούδασαν περὶ τὸν χρυσόν. λύσις ὀνείρου: χρυσὸν κρατῶν ἄπρακτος ὧν θέλεις ἔσῃ.
The headword phrase is proverbial.
