There is also the panathenaicum. Posidonius the philosopher, in the thirty-sixth book of his History, mentions some cups called by this name, speaking thus—“There were also cups made of an onyx, and also of several precious stones joined together, holding about two cotylæ. And very large cups, called panathenaica, some holding two choes, and some even larger.”

There is the proaron too. This was a wooden cup, into [p. 791] which the Athenians used to pour mixed wine. “In hollow proara,” says Pamphilus.
