In Timachides there is also a kind of drinking-cup mentioned, called the æacis.

[p. 740] There is another kind also, called the ἄκατος,or boat, being shaped like a boat. Epicrates says—

Throw down th' acatia,
(using here the diminutive form,)
and take instead
The larger goblets; and the old woman lead
Straight to the cup; . . . the younger maiden . . . .
. . . . . . . fill it; have your oar
All ready, loose the cables, bend the sails.
Among the Cyprians there is also a kind of cup called the aotus, as Pamphilus tells us: and Philetas says, this is a cup which has no ears (ὤτους).

There is also a kind of cup called aroclum, which is mentioned by Nicander the Colophonian.
