There are also rheonta; for this was a name given to some cups: and Astydamas mentions them in his Mercury, speaking thus:—
First of all were two silver craters large,There is also the rhysis. This is called a golden phiala by Theodorus; and Cratinus, in his Laws, says—“Pouring a libation from a rhysis.”
And fifty phialæ, and ten cymbia,
And twelve rheonta, two of which were gold,
The others silver;-of the gold ones, one
Was like a griffin, one like Pegasus.
