There is also the phthoïs these are wide-shaped Phialæ with bosses. Eupolis says—
He pledged the guests in phthoïdes,writing the dative plural φθοῖσι; but it ought to have an acute on the last syllable; like καρσὶ, παισὶ, φθειρσί. There is the philotesia also. This is a kind of κύλιξ, in which they pledged one another out of friendship, as Pamphilus says. And Demosthenes says, “And he pledged him in the philotesia.” And Alexis says—
We, in our private and public capacity,But, besides being the name of a cup, a company feasting together was also called φιλοτήσιον. Aristophanes says—

O thou Persuasion, mistress of my soul!There are also chonni. Among the Gortynians this is the name given to a species of cup resembling the thericleum, made of brass, which Hermonax says is given by lovers to the objects of their affection. There are also Chalcidic goblets, having their name and reputation perhaps from Chalcis in Thrace. [p. 804]
