Headword: Ἐγγυθήκη
Adler number: epsilon,167
Translated headword: vessel-stand
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] a certain item of furniture suitable for putting jars or basins or something not dissimilar on.
Greek Original:
Ἐγγυθήκη: σκεῦός τι πρὸς τὸ κρατῆρας ἢ λέβητας ἤ τι τοιοῦτον οὐκ ἀλλότριον ἐπικεῖσθαι ἐπιτήδειον εἶναι.
Notes:
According to Harpokration s.v. (from which the present entry derives), a lost lawcourt speech attributed to Lysias had been subtitled Concerning the Vessel-stand: no.XLV in Carey's OCT (pp.363-4).
The headword is here in its usual form, but ἐγγυοθήκη occurs in Lucian, Lexiphanes 2.
