only here in the New Testament. It properly denotes the trough
or lake (lacus), as it was called by the Romans, into which the
juice of the grapes ran from the trough above it. It is here

in Matt. 21:33 the Greek word "lenos" is used. This properly
denotes the upper one of the two vats. (See WINE-PRESS
