ξέστης, a Roman dry measure (sextarius), rather less than a pint : cf. Ostr 1186.2 (Rom.) οἴνου ξέσται ιβ, and see Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 762 f., Hultsch Archiv iii. p. 438. In the NT (Mark 7:4) the word is used rather = ";cup"; or ";pitcher,"; whether holding a sextarius or not : cf. P Oxy VI. 921.23 (iii/A.D.) ξέσται β ̄, ";two cups,"; ib. 109.21 (iii/iv A.D.) ξέσται χαλκοῦ γ ̄. In an inventory of church property P Grenf II. 111.6 (v/vi A.D.) ποτήρ (ια) ἀργυρ (ᾶ) γ ̄. ξέστ (ης) ἀργυρ (οῦς) α ̄, ξέστης is apparently = ";paten"; : see the editors’ note. It should be added that Moulton (Gr. ii. p. 155) has difficulty in believing that ξέστης is really a Latin word.
