For drinking-cups see also under sigma 1355.
[1] Up to this point the entry = Lexica Segueriana 214.11 Bachmann (cf. 245.13 Bekker, where the plurals of the same words are presented).
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. The verb "receives" could also be "takes"; and "from silver" could also be rendered as "from money". (The phrase a)po\ a)rguri/ou is otherwise attested only once, in the Aristotelian Economics at 1346a13.)
