Headword: Πάξαμος

Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A scholar. [He wrote] a Cookery-book, alphabetically arranged; Boiotian Histories,[1] in 2 volumes; Twelve Arts -- its subject is shameful figures;[2] Dyeing, 2 volumes; Agriculture, 2 volumes.[3]
Greek Original:
Πάξαμος, λόγιος. Ὀψαρτυτικὰ κατὰ στοιχεῖον, Βοιωτικὰ ἐν βιβλίοις β#, Δωδεκάτεχνον, ἔστι δὲ περὶ αἰσχρῶν σχημάτων: Βαφικὰ βιβλία β#, Γεωργικὰ β#.
Notes:
C1 BCE. See FGrH 377 (this testimonium only); Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 9.376D (9.19 Kaibel); and for fragments, H. Beckh (ed.), Geoponica pp.36-517 passim.
Possibly connected with pi 254, q.v.
[1] Alternatively (as Hemsterhuys suggested), not Βοιωτικά but βιωτικά , "Victuals".
[2] Possibly figures of speech, but far more probably (given the adjective) sexual positions. See Jacoby's note, and cf. delta 472 and esp. delta 1442.
[3] This last '2', some think, should be six. In any event the Geoponica appears to mention a third volume.
Keywords: agriculture; biography; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; gender and sexuality; geography; historiography; science and technology
