Translated headword: who here?
Vetting Status: high
Those pouring libations used to say 'who here?', meaning who is present? Then those present, speaking auspiciously, would say 'many and good men'. The libation-pourers used to do this in order that those aware that they had done something untoward could withdraw from the libations.
