Golden

.

The Golden (“Auraʹtus”). So Jeau Dorat, one of the Pleiad poets of France, was called by a pun on his name. This pun may perhaps pass muster; not so the preposterous title given to him of “The French Pindar.” (1507–1588.)

Golden-tongued (Greek, Chrysolʹogos). So St. Peter, Bishop of Ravenna, was called. (433–450.)

The golden section of a line. Its division into two such parts that the rectangle contained by the smaller segment and the whole line equals the square on the larger segment. (Euclid, ii. 11.)
