STRONGS NT 4713: στάμνος

στάμνος, σταμνου () (from ἵστημι (cf. Curtius, § 216)), among the Greeks an earthen jar, into which wine was drawn off for keeping (a process called κατασταμνίζειν), but also used for other purposes. The Sept. employ it in Exodus 16:33 as the rendering of the Hebrew צִנְצֶנֶת, that little jar (or pot) in which the manna was kept, laid up in the ark of the covenant; hence, in Hebrews 9:4, and Philo de congr. erud. grat. § 18. Cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 400; (Winer's Grammar, 23).

The earlier Greeks used στασιώτης (Moeris, under the word).
