Headword: Λυκιουργίς
Adler number: lambda,807
Translated headword: Lykian-ware, Lycian-ware
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Timotheos uses the expression.[1] Didymos asserts that the bowls manufactured by Lykios the son of Myron were referred to in this way.[2] But the grammarian seems to be unaware that one would not find such an expression arising from proper names, rather from cities and peoples; like "a couch Milesian-made"[3] and the like. So perhaps one should write, in Herodotus [book] seven, not two hunting-spears "wolf-made" but "Lykian-made", in order that, just as in Demosthenes, they may be described as being of Lykian manufacture.[4]
Greek Original:
Λυκιουργίς: Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ πρὸς Τιμόθεον κέχρηται τῇ λέξει. Δίδυμος δέ φησι τὰς ὑπὸ Λυκίου κατεσκευασμένας φιάλας τοῦ Μύρωνος υἱοῦ οὕτως εἰρῆσθαι. ἔοικε δὲ ἀγνοεῖν ὁ γραμματικός, ὅτι τὸν τοιοῦτον σχηματισμὸν ἀπὸ κυρίων ὀνομάτων οὐκ ἄν τις εὕροι γινόμενον, μᾶλλον δ' ἀπὸ πόλεων καὶ ἐθνῶν: ὡς κλίνη Μηλισιουργὶς καὶ τὰ ὅμοια. μήποτε οὖν γραπτέον καὶ παρὰ Ἡροδότῳ ἐν τῷ η# ἀντὶ τοῦ προβόλους δύο Λυκοεργέας, Λυκιοεργέας, ἵνα ὥσπερ παρὰ τῷ Δημοσθένει, οὕτως ὀνομάζηται τὰ ἐν Λυκίῳ εἰργασμένα.
