Calamites

(88 words)

Author(s): Vogeler, Joachim (Baton Rouge, LA)
[German version] (Καλαμίτης; Kalamítēs). Attic hero whose sanctuary was probably not far from the market, near the municipal Lenaion in Athens, which suggests a connection to Dionysus [1. 124]. According to schol. Patm. on Demosth. Or. 18.129, C. derives from the word   kálamos (‘reed’) [3]; by deriving kalámē (‘grain stalk’) according to a different tradition [2], C. would become a part of the Demeter circle.
