Description
The drinking cup is credited to Pythagoras of Samos and is designed in such a way that if too much liquid is poured in it, the cup drains itself of all the liquid by creating a siphoning effect. Although some speculate that the cup was designed as a practical device, it could serve as a moral lesson against gluttony.
