Superlatively skilful, refined ancients (8)


I believe the answer is:


'superlatively skilful' is the definition.

'refined ancients' is the wordplay.
'refined' indicates an anagram.
'ancients' is an anagram of 'CANNIEST'.

(Other definitions for canniest that I've seen before include "Instance (anag)" , "Shrewdest sort of ancients" .)

I've seen this clue in The Everyman puzzle in The Observer.
