, sc. ἔργα
An adjective derived from the name of the architect Hippodamus of Miletus, who is said to have
been the first of the Greeks who built whole cities on a regular architectural plan; and hence
the word is applied to such cities, and to the public places and buildings in them. The
Piraeus, for example, was designed by Hippodamus, and its market-place was called Ἱπποδάμειος ἀγορά, Ἱπποδαμεία ἀγ.
, or simply ἡ Ἱπποδαμεία
. Hippodamus flourished during the second half of the
fifth century B.C.
