Adler number: omicron,982
Translated headword: not Glaukos' craft
Vetting Status: high
[sc. A proverbial phrase] in reference to things that are easily accomplished, and [yet] hard to understand.
Greek Original:
Οὐχὶ Γλαύκου τέχνη: ἐπὶ τῶν εὖ εἰργασμένων, καὶ δυσκατανοήτων.
For this proverb see already under gamma 282, and again under sigma 376. Glaukos was said to have come from the island of Samos (or Chios) and invented the art of inlaying iron.
The present entry draws on Plutarch, Proverbia 2.25; cf. also Diogenianus, Zenobius, Photius, Hesychius, Macarius Chrysocephalus and Michael Apostolius s.v. γλαύκου τέχνη ; see also Plato, Phaedo 108D (web address 1) and the corresponding scholia.
