Adler number: lambda,285
Translated headword: lepastes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A kind of drinking-vessel larger than a cup [kylix]; or a [wine-]jar. Aristophanes [writes]: "you will say [so], when you drink a lepastes of new wine".[1]
Greek Original:
Λεπαστής: εἶδος ποτηρίου μεῖζον ἢ κύλιξ: ἢ ὁ πίθος. Ἀριστοφάνης: φήσεις, ἐπειδὰν ἐκπίῃς οἴνου νέου λεπαστήν.
Notes:
The headword noun is variously lepastes, as here, or lepaste.
The shape of such a vessel was, notionally, like a limpet (lambda 284).
