Meaning 'wine-skin,' the term askos is conventionally (and erroneously) used for a small, flat vase, with narrow sloping spout and handle arching over body. A variant exists in the form of a double-askos.
Bedeuted "Weinschlauch". Konventionell (und fälschlicherweise) verwendet für kleines, flaches Gefäß mit einem engen, abfallenden Ausguss und einem Bügelhenkel. Eine weitere Variante ist der Doppelaskos.
Η ονομασία αυτή, που προέρχεται από τον δερμάτινο σάκο για τη φύλαξη οίνου, τον ασκό, αποδίδεται συμβατικά (και λανθασμένα) σε ένα μικρό, επίπεδο αγγείο με στενή, λοξή προχοή και μια τοξωτή λαβη. Μια επιπλέον παραλλαγή του είναι ο διπλός ασκός.
