Chalice

(Lat. calix, a regular, small drinking cup). For its domestic background, reference can be made to the Greek particular two-handled kulix, in contrast with the NT's generalized potem-rion, from which is derived the special liturgical usage for the administration of the liquid portion of the Lord's Supper. Archaeologically interesting, though of doubtful date, is the Chalice of Antioch, discovered in 1910.
