Headword: Ὀχεῖον
Adler number: omicron,1041
Translated headword: breeding-horse, carriage, ocheion
Vetting Status: high
Dinarchus used [this word] to mean carriage. But the same [writer] also used it to mean [a horse] designated for breeding. For he says: "they are buying, of my horses, a stallion".[1] Lycurgus in the [speech] On Financial Administration says "neighbors of the ocheion".[2] And perhaps some took this expression to refer to the place in which horse-breeding takes place or carriages are for hire.
Greek Original:
Ὀχεῖον: ἀντὶ μὲν τοῦ ὄχημα Δείναρχος ἐχρήσατο. ἐχρήσατο δὲ ὁ αὐτὸς ἀντὶ τοῦ εἰς ὀχείαν ἀποδεδειγμένον. φησὶ γάρ: ὠνοῦνταί μου τῶν ἵππων ὀχεῖον. Λυκοῦργος δὲ ἐν τῷ Περὶ διοικήσεως γείτονας τοῦ ὀχείου φησί. καὶ μήποτε ἐπὶ τούτου τινὲς ἔλαβον τὴν λέξιν, ἐν ᾧ ὀχεῖαι γίνονται κτηνῶν ἢ ὀχήματα μισθοῦνται.
Abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v.
[1] Dinarchus fr. LXXI.3 Conomis -- for both passages: Harpok. shows that both are from the same speech. (In the second, the direct quotation, shifts from omicron to omega have occurred since Harpok. Read: "they are buying my horse, a stallion".)
[2] Lycurgus fr. 26 Conomis.
