There is also a cup of the name of ethanion. Hellanicus, in his account of the History and Manners of the Egyptians, writes thus—“In the houses of the Egyptians are found a brazen φιάλη, and a brazen κύαθος, and a brazen ἠθάνιον.

There is another kind called hemitomus; a sort of cup in use among the Athenians, so called from its shape and it is mentioned by Pamphilus, in his Dialects.
